RK Motors Charlotte Revs up East Coast Car Show Tour

CHARLOTTE, NC--(Marketwire - February 24, 2011) - RK Motors Charlotte, one of the nation's premier restorers, re-sellers and builders of classic, muscle and high-performance cars, is kicking off the 2011 RK Motors Charlotte Car Show Tour, from Feb. 25-27, at the Detroit AutoRama. RK Motors Charlotte will stop at 16 venues during the tour.

"Relationships formed at car shows are part of what makes the classic car hobby special," stated Joseph Carroll, RK Motors Charlotte president and CEO. "We enjoy meeting the thousands of automotive aficionados who are as passionate about the industry, just like we are at RK Motors Charlotte."

During the tour, RK Motors Charlotte will feature a 1968 Dodge HEMI Charger Pro-Touring, which was built by the RK Motors Design/Build division. The Midnight Black Metallic Charger has only 10 miles on the odometer and each panel of the vehicle was hand-fabricated, starting with the free-flowing bodylines.

The engine is a Mopar Performance 472 cid HEMI that produces 650 horsepower and features a Hilborn downdraft electronic fuel injection. The Tremec TKO five-speed manual transmission handles all the power smoothly. 

Like the engine bay, the suspension was completely dissembled, prepped and painted in black and matte silver. It features a tubular independent tear TIG welded suspension with inboard brakes, new 20-inch Lexani alloy wheels and rack and pinion steering. 

The interior of the Charger is complete with black bucket seats, console, dash and rear bench inside the radically reshaped passenger compartment. The powerful Kenwood entertainment system provides great sound throughout the car.
