It's funny to go watch the first few episodes of Binky, when they're talking about time estimates. I think they said their estimate was two years, but they might not have been serious.

In the first episode, they say the workshop will be Binky's home "for however many months it takes."

I think they were a tad optimistic with just "months."

I don't know if it's a foul to post your own car here but I just had these put on my Challenger 1320. I bought the reflective ones because the description said that it reflects artificial light like headlights. Had no clue they would look like this.

I did a search on eBay and found a seller in Texas that sells all kinds of graphics like these. Same seller also uses Etsy and charges less for the same products.

I wasn't sure about spending the extra money for the reflective graphic instead of just the black one. the description said that it reflects with artificial lights like headlights or street lights. I decided to go with it anyway even though it was a little bit more expensive and figured that it would show up at night. When I went to go pick it up I was standing next to the car and it looked a dull gray and I was disappointed because I thought it was supposed to be black. I stepped away from the car to go pay the man who took care of that for me and I turned around and it was black. So it changes as you walk up to it and walk around it and it's some point you can hardly even see it. I will try to find a link to the place I bought it from but I'm not anywhere near that information right now.

Yeah please don't forget. Looks better than the one I just peeled off that didn't last a year. It was cheap and I did have low expectations though, not much is lost here. The downside is it came from Ukraine and took a month to get and he changed the designs. I thought I could roll through a bunch of them but oh well.

YOU'RE BOTH FIRED! It's the Angry Bee logo that Dodge came out with in 2019 for the 1320 packs.



Bonus points because that is my odometer and I had to pull over to the side of the NYS Thruway to get the picture because of my timing.

If you love cars you owe it to yourself to look these up. Fastest NA factory car in the 1/4 mile ever. Demon transmission, Demon suspension, transbrake, line lock and all of the Demon Drag electronic timers and doo dads. And it only comes in automatic transmission because, well, Demon. This doesn't stop nearly everyone that sees it from saying "I'd never get it in automatic" and I'm like, sure that makes sense. Let's race then

I love cars but I come to these threads and usually stay quiet because I'm nowhere near the level of knowledge here - I just love cars. I've always had a Fun Car as my mode of transport but this is the first truly AI moment in car ownership - I own one of 95 Plum Crazy 1320s they made last year.



This is the first Dodge I ever owned and it is crazy how easy and comfortable it is to drive on a daily basis. It also has the MDS engine so on the highway it kicks down to 4 cylinders and I get almost 30mpg. But then you hit the DRAG button and your whole day changes.

I didnít know that A: Dodge discontinued the Demon, and B: That they give zero fucks and still offer such a drag-racing focused package. That thing is awesome.

Also, plum crazy is an amazing factory color. Nice car, duder.

I got together with my wife 6 years ago and brought my STi with me. My wife really struggled to drive it even though she can drive other manuals. Once I made the decision to get a Challenger I was looking hard at either the 1320 or the Shaker. My wife very nicely said, "it's your car so you can get whatever you want, but an automatic would be nice in case I have to drive it in an emergency." I test drove about 25 different cars in the year it took me to make my decision and the two main criteria were Fast and Comfortable (I'm almost 50 and the STi was starting to not be awesome in that department). So this met all of those criteria PLUS it's an automatic plus it's pretty bad rear end.

May it serve you better than my first (and due to customer support's bullshit, ONLY) new MOPAR product. Which has now been gleefully sold. I like what Dodge does with performance cars, and I like that Jeep's engineers actually listen to the customers, but gently caress everything else about that garbage company.

That night we performed the rite and opened the gate.
Halfway through, I went to fix us both a coke float.
By the time I got back, he'd gone insane.
Plus, he'd left the gate open and there was evil everywhere.

I had a Challenger Scar Pack for 3 years and it was great fun. Commute changed and I just never drove it which was a shame. Everyone needs to drive a dumb dodge before society bans fun.
