It has been announced today that Chrysler will be filing for bankruptcy, and will be doing a deal with Fiat. What a marriage.
In doing some investigating on this story I happened upon an announcement, reported on motorauthority.com, that Chrysler was introducing a “drag race package” for its Dodge Challenger brand. The piece goes on to say, “Chrysler is set to release a new drag-racing package for its Dodge Challenger muscle car this July, which will be aimed at both professional teams and enthusiasts. The new kit is described as a modern day equivalent of the HemiDart and Barracuda package cars of the late 1960s”.
This announcement was made last May just a couple months after Fiat introduced their long anticipated update on the Fiat 500 in January 2008.
It will be interesting to see how this couple get along, but I certainly wish them the best.
