1967 Dodge Eliminator R/T

Not satisfied with my Mini-Charger GT Concept I cobbled together from an old Dodge Charger press photo, I kept messing with it until I ended up with the "Dodge Eliminator R/T" poster you see here. Why you ask? I don't know. It's just kinda fun to mess around with Photoshop and Illustrator this way. As if I don't have enough stuff on my creative plate. Why the name "Eliminator" you ask? Isn't that a name Mercury used for a high performance Cougar you say? In fact that is correct. Mercury used the name in 1969- but Dodge actually had considered the name first, in the mid sixties as a potential name for their new pony car, which as we all know, ended up being called the "Challenger." You don't believe me you say? Read Paul C. Zazarine's book Barracuda & Challenger. Some great info on the Dodge and Plymouth Pony Cars. I also wrote another Dub tune called Dubnag. This stuff just falls out of me sometimes

Please get ahold of me. I love your eliminator and would love a bigger version of the image. My first car was a canary yellow 67.
