1970 Charger Pro-Tour Build - aka "Punishment"

I am building a 1970 Charger, fully modernized, from the ground-up. The name of the car is "Punishment."

The work is being done by Dave Salvaggio, in Milwaukee: http://www.salvaggioautodesign.com/

Dave also built the 1970 Challenger known as "Insidious." Pictures of that car are here:

I'll post pics here as the car gets built.

Here are the designs for the car, rendering by Sean Smith of http://www.seansmithdesigns.com/

Thanks for all the positive words and feedback!

How much dish do the wheels actually have? Rears are 20X12 5inch backspace .....fronts are 18X9.5 with 4.75 Backspace

Whose suspensions are you using? Front Suspension is C6 Corvette rear suspension is our altered version of Detroit Speed and Engineering with Dana 60.

What size tire did you use to fill the rear of that big car. 335/35/ZR20

Can I ask you what's the paint code you use for the trans and engines front drive? Lamborghini Grigio Estoque made by Global Paint systemes (PPG).

What a great day at SEMA yesterday. The car was photographed lots of times. People were very excited about the front bumper and engine placement, the rear tail lights, and the interior.

MOPAR got some love!
