Tow in Caddy style.

IIRC, the story behind this one is the owner of the repo company had this custom built for his business back in the day. It is housed at the International Towing and Recovery Museum here in Chattanooga. This place is worth a look if you are in the area.

At least this is an easy fix (depending on what else they screwed up).
Please also note the door "handle".



Worse, the "hot rod shop" that built it, thinks it's a GOOD example of their work.

and scroll down.


It's still a straight-8.
I hear they have a TV show now. "Slow & Loud"

I've also always wondered why Dodge abandoned the big SUV market after canceling the RamCharger years ago... A Suburban-sized SUV based on the RAM would be cool.

GM has done well with the large SUV market Yukon/Tahoe/Suburban/Escalade. My old 2002 Suburban has been a great vehicle...
There's your answer. GM pretty much owned the large SUV market, Dodge knew it would be futile to try to break into that market with GM having it pretty well handled already.

These are a genre: they're known as "Donks."

Seen in Boston.

There's one parked on one of my regular cycling routes. Flat front tire so it hasn't moved in a bit.

One of those with a PSD under the hood would be an awesome vehicle to have.
