Dodge Challenger 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shaker: Long name… lots of fun

YouTube Preview Image

You can’t afford the Hellcat. You want more than the 5.7-liter R/T has to offer. Say hello to the Dodge Challenger 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shaker… if you can remember all of that.

It’s a long name, but it’s a car with lots of fun to pack up all those letters. There’s 485 horsepower on tap, and it’s more than enough to meter out punishment to those rear tires that are just aching for it.

There’s a hole in the hood, and yes it’s supposed to be there. That’s where the shaker scoop pokes through in order to feed some more air into the engine. It’s bolted directly to that 6.4-liter V8, and when you dip into the throttle it starts to dance a bit.

This is a toy for adults.
Adults who enjoy acting like children…

[Disclaimer: Dodge tossed us the keys to this Challenger and we had the car for a week. A tank of gas was included. Not included: fuzzy dice, a black t-shirt and plain jeans, and an iPod with classic rock. We supplied that ourselves… minus the dice.]

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 71 – Mr. VanDerHorst Goes To Washington

C&T 71

At the risk of over-saturating the market with quality Cammed & Tubbed Podcast content, we’re hereby publishing our third episode of the week. In case you missed them, here’s Dadisode (an interview with my father), and the C ‘n T guys taking over the Hooniverse Podcast on Wednesday with special guest Stef Schrader. As much fun as those were, it was nice to settle into our normal routine and get a regular episode done and posted. Jason was busy elsewhere filming a very expensive Golf convertible, so we let him have the night off, back to just Cam and Brad for this week, just like the good ‘ol days.

This episode’s topics include: Cam’s Box of goodies, Cam went on a road trip with his girlfriend to Washington DC and we spend a lot of time talking about boring airplanes, Somehow we’ve gone 70 episodes without killing each other, Cam sold a bicycle, and “What is your personal tuning package?”

Podcast: Episode 119 – There Goes The Neighborhood

It’s Jeff, Chris, and Blake all back together again… Sort of…

We invited Stef Schrader of BlackFlag/Jalopnik fame to join us for this episode, and conversation ranged from her LeMons Volkswagen and 944s to the Audi S7 that Jeff is currently driving. Magnus Walker crashed his iconic #277, and we mourn the loss of racing driver and prior podcast guest Justin Wilson.

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 70 – Dadisode


Horsepower and Chrome, my father (pictured on my right) always been a vintage car guy, mostly old Fords. His father, my grandfather, was also a car guy, owning a handful of fast and fun cars when my dad was a youngster. Aside from my little brother (pictured on my left), nobody else in our family has ever really shown an interest in cars. We share our interest in cars, but it’s always been a bit different. I’ve branched out to take an interest in all cars, while Dad’s focus remains mostly on Mustangs and old pick-em-up trucks.

Over the weekend of the Monterey Motorsports Reunion, I invited my father out for the weekend to partake in the festivities. He was probably the inspiration and genesis of my automotive enthusiasm. We’ve never really had a conversation like this before, so it was nice to sit down for an hour and talk about his life as a young car enthusiast. He’s never been a furrin’ car guy, so it was interesting seeing him at Monterey. “Is that a Ferrari?” No, that’s a Lotus. “Is that a Ferrari?” No, that’s an Acura. “Is that a Lamborghini?” No, that’s a Ferrari.

If I can leave you with some advice, interview your parents. Talk about their past. Chances are, there’s some good history there.

24 Hours of Lemons: 5th in class for “Idiots in a Buick”

11933484_10153233719069495_2510235967426971398_n (1)

We finished the There Goes the Neighborhood 24 Hours of Lemons race and this time we obtained great results. The “Idiots in the Buick” as Jay Lamm, the Chief Perp named us, finished fifth in class. Fifth! And 16th overall!

That’s a huge improvement from our last race, where we blew the motor, and much better than our eleventh in class, previously. But, the car that finished fourth in our class had a best lap about four seconds faster than our best lap. How do we improve on this?

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 69 – No Jokes

C&T 63

Look at how far we’ve come. *sniffle* I remember episode 68 like it was just last week… Oh… Right.

Cam’s gone visiting our nation’s capital, but the show must go on. Jason’s calling in from Texas, and Brad just got back from Monterey. LOTS to talk about!

This episode’s topics include: Two of the 3 D’s, The conclusion of last week’s game, More auction talk, Monterey like crazy, Jason talks Texas, Mercedes SL55 AMG, and Porsche 911 Turbo S. We have a lot of fun, talk a lot of cars, and don’t make a single 69 joke. That’s a big deal for us. I’m sure if Cam had been around, that wouldn’t be the case. But Jason and I, WE’RE PROFESSIONALS!

Podcast: Episode 117 – The Redundant


Coducer/Prodoust Chris Hayes runs the show alongside guest host Jonathon Klein from BoldRide.com. While still ailing from a broken shoulder, Jonathon managed to convince Bugatti to give him some seat time in a Veyron Gran Sport Vitesse. Additionally, Jonathon gives us his take on the 2015 VW Touareg TDI.

There was a lot unveiled at Pebble and the hosts talk about the ubiquity of McLarens, Aston Martin’s new DBX, the new M4 GTS concept (with water/meth injection), the M2, the much delayed Acura NSX, and a comparison of the heavyweights in the hypercar realm, the Veyron, Koenigsegg 1:1 and the Hennessey Venom GT.

Quick Spin: 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S
…Fast Meter Redefined

Go ahead and think back to when you first started driving cars. Think to when you first felt something truly fast, if you rode in it, drove it or saw it blast pass you on a highway or local drag strip. For me it was a 1995 Chevrolet Camaro Z28. To 16 year old me this was a rocket ship and was like nothing I had driven up to that point… “allegedly.”

Since then I’ve driven some fairly fast cars, be they from the factory or heavily modified. Regardless of any power I’ve felt before, a strange and wonderful thing happened to me today.

My “fast meter” just got reset and I welcomed with open arms the brutal acceleration of the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S.

A visit to the Classic Car Club Manhattan


The original Classic Car Club started in 1995 in London. In 2005 it came to New York City. The idea is simple: join club, pay dues, drive cool cars, socialize, party. The club, located on Manhattan’s lower west side, close to the Holland Tunnel entrance, is a car enthusiast’s paradise on an island that is not known for its love of cars.
