Funny story.
Nice day so I took her out to do some early morning errands. Heading to Costco’s and there’s a Saturn Vue in front of me with blacked out lights and a fart can. I knew he had a fart can because he made sure to gun it every chance he could.

This goes on for a couple of miles and I’m just shaking my head. At that point both of us merge on to a two lane highway and sure enough fart can waits for me in the left lane.

Little background info needs to be inserted here : For those of us who had a well rounded childhood, you remember cupping your hand under one armpit and flapping your arm to make a pretty good farting sound ?

Well, fart can opens the window and points forward, I, in turn, cupped my armpit and flapped my arm wildly as I lmao. Fart can took off and it sounded like someone just finished a colonoscopy solution.
Challengers do make the occasional driver act like a fool sometimes.

I dont know I have had two guys in Hellcats F8 Green Try to get me to race one Challenger WB another in a Charger pissed both off by ignoring them.One few weeks back in the Challenger F8, Seriously my Hood Emblems say 220 Pentastar!!! At least the guy in the Charger couple days ago after he acted like an A** got nailed by a HCS Hillsborough County Sheriff Dodge Challenger Hellcat, Plain White Knuckle aka PW7, he just was coming around the corner headed to the station guy in the Charger nails it cuts over in the Intersection next thing you know a nice healthy sounding Super Charged Challenger nails him... :) opps!!! Guess HCS has a new toy!!!

My Buddy Mike told me he gets a lot of People in Pickups trying to get him to race???

Got rid of the Starship Enterprise Shifter and did the Hurst A8 Shifter Mod. The trim is not snapped in yet, my Tail Happy Neutral Pull Cover hasn't come yet

That does look sharp !
Got a kick out of the “ Starship Enterprise Shifter”. Now that you mention it, it does look like one.
Was it an easy installation and do you mind sharing where you got it from ?
Thanks (y)

Thanks 👍 Got it from American Muscle, came the day after I ordered it.

Personally I think the price is absolutely ridiculous for a Shifter Handle but I put a Barton Shifter in my 1320 and absolutely loved it and I like to shift manually and the Pistol Grip just looks and feels so great. The Barton is a hundred bucks cheaper and I loved it but was a little disappointed in the spring loaded push down part. It doesn't have a trigger lock out, instead you install these little pen like springs and push down to get it into Reverse and Park, I found many times it ended up in reverse instead of Park so I wanted to try something else this time around. To be honest I liked the look of the Barton more and to be fair the spring set up works a little different and maybe I was supposed to lube the shaft to make it work better, it was fine but on cold days a little harder to push down and get into park.

Yes it's a pretty easy install and since I've done it before a piece of cake this time around. You have to be careful getting the trim off and clips out but the hardest part might be getting that stupid factory shifter wire disconnected, my 1320 came right out but this one fought me for 5 or 10 minutes

Thanks for all the information. (y) Didn’t realize you need to reinstall and hide the old shifter. Doesn’t look like it’s too hard to do.
Thinking this will make a great Christmas present to myself.

I just ordered the Barton ball type shifter , they have a black Friday special 18% off and free shipping plus I signed up for PayPal credit and got an additional $50 off. So I ended up paying $113 plus tax.

That’s good to know. I was going to wait until tomorrow.
