Here is my completed Blue Deuce! Converted from an '08 Kasey Kahne Bud car. Nick's resin nose, my own scratchbuilt spoiler and sharkfin, and extended rear fenders. Decals are Winscals, one sheet as the bleed through isn't so bad that I find it necessary to buy another sheet. I also painted the padding on the rollbars to give the factory interior a little extra 'pop'. Be sure to take a look at the WIP over in the Fab Shop if you haven't already and thank you for looking!!

I am SOOOOOOO disheartened that my Dodges will be no more (not the current ones anyway), especially after seeing the 2013 car Sad((((((

Never gonna happen, but I would sh1t myself if Hendrick went to Dodge. Just sayin'.

Yes, it is lame. I still don't see how Penske figures to be anywhere near the top of the Ford pecking order besides always behind ROush.
I can see EGR possibly going to them-with chips past dodge ties & EGR low on bowties totem-pole. THe thing is whomever goes to dodge HAS to have an engine department. I doubt JGR would leave Toyota's top teir UNLESS DOdge throws CRAZY money at them. I see EGR, or MWR??? TIme will tell.

Ralph Gilles (Dodge's CEO or whatever) said their "phone has been ringing", so I am anxious to see who (if anyone) does make the move. I was thinking EGR as well, but could an Earnhardt nameplate really be associated with anything but chevy? Was also thinking RPM, since he was also in Dodges before but with how things have been going with that team the last 2 or 3 years, I don't if I see them taking any sort of potential risk. JGR definitely won't move, especially with the TRD engines they are running now. If a Toyota team was going to make the move, I could possibly see MWR doing it since they haven't really "proven" anything with Toyota. But, like you said, they need engines and that is a fairly small team even though they have 3 cars. Other option that was talked about was bringing back the factory team but it would take a ton of time and money on Dodge's part and we all know where the auto industry is right now..

Penske probably took one look at the nose of the new Dodge and said I'm not running that parachute nosed car and ran to Ford. I here the new Chevy is based on an Australian car.

I thought about the aerodynamic qualities too. It's possible that would become a flat panel on the final race version. I heard the Chevy rumor about bringing the Caprice back as that car too.

I've liked BK for a couple years now and its nice to see him getting some recognition. Plus, the Penske Deuces are always hot cars.
