FEATURE VEHICLE

This month's Mopar is a 1972 Dodge Demon 340 five speed car too! Dave is a new member to Mopars of Las Vegas and it's an honor to post this cool Mopar to show off to all that visit our club website. Here is Dave's story:

Thanks for being asked to feature my Demon. I got into Mopar's living down in south Florida . My brother was heavy in Mopar's so he introduced me to all the muscle cars mainly cuda's and Dodge Darts . I would up buying 3 cars a 71 cuda 73 Challenger and a 71 Duster and tons of parts. But sold all my cars and parts and moved to Vegas in 1993. Without any cars to tinker with although I was heavy into 4wd mainly older bronco's. Had a fully restored 73 Bronco for a few years daily driver with a hot 302 and a/c . Raising kids for years after always wanted a little A body mopar. So fast forward to 2016 started looking for a Demon turned out there was this guy who had a 72 Demon 340 h code fe5 red but with a twist it has a Tremac 5 sp O/D with a 4:10 gear . (Now 3.55 suregrip) Motor is date coded 72 built to a 70 specs but with a solid cam . Made a deal and shipped the car to Vegas in the summer of 2016. I since have done some of my own custom's to it. Bigger disc brakes, QA1 control arms, welded lowers and pst torsion bars . Car handles great and while maintaining a 'stock look' just with a few twists . My future plans to upgrade to a borgensen steering box and maybe fuel injection. Thanks for the feature month.

I formed this club in July 2002 with the idea I just wanted a few more cool Mopars to park my 1969 GTX by. Over the years this club has grown to be known in many states, and also other parts of the world. As of this date we have 367 vehicles and 228 members in our club and we continue to keep growing! We have very simple rules in our club with no dues. If you think you want to be a part of us simply contact me. I will be more than happy to send you the club rules to become a part of this "Private Club". Thank you, and enjoy our Mopars.
