Questionable Concepts: Dodge Aviat, Super8 & Kahuna

567153

They’re models that never quite made it to market: The Dodge Aviat, Super8 and Kahuna. That 1995 Aviat (pictured above) looks a little Neon-esque, right? Because it began as one. With this plight, Dodge sacrificed aesthetics for aerodynamics and it didn’t play in the marque’s favor.

Next, enter the Super8: A partial preview of the revived Charger and a soon after a Hot Wheels model.

Rounding off the trifecta is the Kahuna – a noble attempt at a beach ride. Complete with wood paneling and a retractable roof this 2003 concept didn’t exactly take off.

Do any of these concepts catch your eye? Maybe beauty really is in the eye of the beholder on this one…

#P1046: Legend of Le Mans

#2 Ford GT40, chassis P/1046, at the 1966 Le Mans 24 Hours

This is the Ford GT40 Mk. II chassis number P1046 but you may know it as the Le Mans winner of 1966. It’s a ride that surpasses the Ferrari and back in the day, was part of a one-two-three finish for Blue Oval. After hitting the 1966 Le Mans winners circle, this Ford became a transmission test mule, and saw untold modifications over the years. Enter present day and the team at Rare Drive, East Kingston, New Hampshire has restored the aesthetic integrity as well as the history of a legendary ride. To commemorate the restoration of P1046, RK Motors is putting together a series of videos. Here in part one, entitled “#P1046: The Legend of Le Mans,” RK goes heavy on the history. It’s not one to be missed. Enjoy:
