Summit Trivia Challenge
March’s Summit Trivia question related to the Chargers seen in March’s Retro and February’s HopNot tech-install story, and—again—the entries we got were all correct.
Here’s that question again: Who on the Mopar Muscle masthead has sat behind the wheel of both of those Chargers?
Answer: Associate Editor Scott Ross...the ’07 Charger in the HopNot tech feature is his own car, and the “Retro” ’68 Charger roadster show car was in the garage of then-neighbor (and Chrysler Styling exec) Richard Baird, with a ’69 grille and taillights on it, when Scott tried it on at the ripe old age of 10.
David Maas of Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan, was the first one to send in a correct answer, so he wins the Summit Racing Equipment gift certificate this month.
For June, our question relates to the Ray Evernham-built B-Body featured in this issue, and its on-track predecessors: How did the ’64 Plymouths fare in their first points-paying NASCAR Grand National race that season?
Charge! (Anything In Your Garage)
Here’s a must-have for your high-performance/collectible Mopar(s), daily driver(s), and anything else with a 12-volt electrical system: Optima’s Digital 400V Performance Maintainer and Battery Charger. It has a charge rate of up to four amps on large batteries, and three amps on small batteries, and it can keep all your 12-volt batteries healthy during storage while maximizing battery life and performance with Optima’s built-in battery health mode. Plus, it also comes with an at-a-glance battery indicator, and a wall bracket and hook.
Not only will Optima’s Digital 400V extend the life of your ride’s battery by keeping it charged when not in use, but with an MSRP of just $99, it’ll pay for itself the first time that you don’t have to replace a bunch of dead batteries in the springtime. Not just car and truck batteries, but marine, motorcycle, powersport, lawn and garden, and RV batteries, too.
