The Dodge Challenger R/T that you see in this article is pure eye-candy…. just look at it! The recent and regular stock Dodge Challenger is such a handsome and mature looking muscle car it’s hard to think of further body modifications that would further accentuate its shape and still look good. This version seems to accomplish just that.
You would have seen this Challenger if you recently watched the latest episode of West Coast Customs ‘Street Customs’ TV show that aired on TLC on March 26th, 2009. This one-off creation belongs to Joshua ‘Chop’ Tobin aka the “King of Cars”, who is the owner of Las Vegas based car dealership, Towbin Dodge. The entire pimp job was done by the guys at West Coast Customs (WCC) and we must say that they have come up with something really good.
When money is not an issue, the number of things that can be done are, well infinite. The real show stoppers on this car are those oversized wide rear fenders, white paint with black striping, a new spoiler at the rear and blacked out rear lights. The star of the show however are the magnificent Asanti deep dish rims. The car is fitted with 24 inches up front and 26 inches at the rear. They seem truly special and the white-black matte finish combination along with their design and the depth of the rear rims are quite stunning. The only sad part are the disc brakes which look like milk bottle tops inside these huge rims and fail to fill out the space inside.
The interior receives special treatment in the form of matching while & black leather trim. The 5 seater layout of this coupe has been retained and there is also a super cool high end Polk Audio system with two amps and 4 visible subs and when coupled with no roof you can keep the entire motorway entertained! The top is all black and doesn’t quite fit in with the rest of the car’s styling. However, this is one car to be seen in with the top down.
With all those prying eyes, the owner would have felt that it would be better to auction off this car. The auction on ebay lasted three days. It was later withdrawn after the highest bid was just $50,200 which did not meet the reserve price (which is the minimum price a seller is willing to accept for the item).
Well, we do not know what the owner might have expected but, but as a consequence he retains the Challenger. This might even be his trick to pull in prying eyes to take notice of his creation. Cheers!
