Chip Foose, customizer, illustrator, artist (and all-around decent guy), is extending his association with Unique Performance — builder of six-figure custom muscle-car (don't-call-them) reproductions, like the Foose '69 Camaro, Foose Stallion Mustang and Shelby GT.500E Super Snake. The two are planning to give the Mopar freaks some, with a run of supercars based on the 1970 Dodge Hemi Challenger. Buyers will get a choice of Hemi powerplants (347 ci and 426 ci) hooked to a TKO five-speed tranny, and the cars will feature shaved bumpers, Foose 18" wheels and a custom DuPont paint scheme. A prototype Challenger is scheduled to debut this Thursday, June 15, 2006, with production set to begin next month. Don't ask the price; it'll only make that bank hit you've been considering seem doable. Or else wait until Dodge comes out with its own, albiet less potent, Challenger for around $100,000 less.
