Reviewed 2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8: Is It Still Mopar or NoCar? 

 

For some in the muscle car community the phrase Mopar or NoCar still rings true.  The 2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8 was our first chance to get behind the wheel of the modern retro muscle car, and it rounded out or sampling, having previously driven the Camaro and the Mustang.

The Dodge has always looked good, but how does it drive?  That's what we find out in this episode of Rumblestrip.NET and Ten Minute Test Drive.

Reviewed - 2013 Dodge Dart: Alfa Romeo DNA Makes A Difference 

We finally get our first Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram product in to test on Rumblestrip.NET and Ten Minute Test Drive, and it's the Dodge Dart Rallye.

If you are a fan of Top Gear, you know that, according to them, you can not be a "proper Petrol Head" unless you have owned an Alfa Romeo. Well, here in the U.S., Alfa's have not been sold new for almost 20 years, so, if you wanted an Alfa, you drove something old.

With Chrysler now owned by FIAT, who owns Alfa, that can now change, The Dodge Dart is built off an Alfa platform and we wanted to know, does that DNA come through in the Dodge, that's what we find out in this review.

RoundAboutShow #27 The "St. Patrick's Day" Episode

It’s time for a taste of the Emerald Isle!  That’s right, St. Patrick’s Day is just a few hours away, so raise a glass with the RoundAbout crew and toast everything green in this “magically delicious” episode.  From a one-of-a-kind Chip Foose-customized farm implement to a South Korean road that’s green in a different way, we’ve got all of our Irish bases covered.  Among a plethora of other topics, we also chat about Ford’s brand-new Paddy wagon and expound on the dangers of grooming yourself while driving.  But there’s a whole lot more than that, so you’d better listen up.  Where else will you find out what Michelle Naranjo loves about Riverdance and where Zach Bowman's hidden his pot-o-gold?

RoundAboutShow #23 The "Love-Hate" Episode

Is there more polarizing a holiday than Valentine's Day? If you're in a happy, stable relationship then you probably love it. On the other hand, you may be one of the legions who prefer to stay indoors with the windows shuttered, in which case you probably hate it. So, this week we bring you stories of automotive love and hate.

Turns out that despite raising the ire of environmentalists everywhere, the Suburban is the GM vehicle most loved by the youngsters. And, over time there are those noises and creaks in your car that you come to both despise and adore. One clever group of artists have composed a veritable love song made entirely from the noises of a Jeep. Plus we've got another installment of Meet Your Roadmates, this week the Dodge Edition, and we'll get a Chicago Auto Show wrap-up from our guest Colin Bird!

RoundAboutShow #18 The Not What It Seem Episode

Things are not always what they seem. For instance, you might think this episode is nearly a week late. Wrong as usual, idiot. We were planning to do this episode a year from now, so technically it's early. Why are you so offended? Clearly you are unfamiliar with the word "idiot's" Greek roots. I was simply suggesting you were a private person unfamiliar with the vagaries of podcasting. Again, not what it seems.

So there you go. Houston, we have a theme. This week we've got the coolest 4x4 you never expected, a bevy of protests as the Detroit Auto Show gets going and a wrecked Yaris that is more functional than you'd think. Plus we've got some new fun and games this week including our Mystery Words of the Week, a new segment where we get to stereotype drivers and a couple of burnouts gone terribly wrong.
