Hellcat Driver Gets Heavy On The Gas And Ends Up Arrested
June 30th, 2017
So a guy in Chicago decided to take his brand new Challenger SRT Hellcat for a spin and went a little too heavy on the gas, Gearheads reported. Christopher Garza decided to show off his brand new Hellcat by driving wild on an Indiana Toll Road...yes, a toll road.
Garza decided to drive his Hellcat in the middle of the night on the road but unfortunately for him, he got caught by the po po. When he was pulled over the officer told him he clocked his speed at 158MPH! Garza reportedly gave the officer an honest answer and said he just wanted to show his friends what his 707 horsepower engine could do. This is what your local drag strip is for, not the state toll road. Would you do the same thing if you had a brand new Hellcat?
This week Katie introduces you to 502 Motorworks from Louisville, Kentucky and their recreations of automotive icons. Silas Boyle and Matt Phillips will explain how they build three cars that are exact recreations of the originals: a 502 Spyder which is a recreation of the 1955 Porsche Spyder, a 1963 AC Cobra “Slabside” and a 1952 C-Type Jaguar. They’re all done in alloy with the correct drivelines, brake components and transmissions, just like the originals. And they come with FIA papers so you can race them in historic races along side the originals. They also distribute reproductions of the 1929 Bentley which is a 1948 Bentley that has been rebodied as a 1929 Bentley. Beautiful and amazing to look at and drive! Plus we’ve got some cool tips and how-to secrets from our four shops, so check it all out this week
