    Default Chrysler in the V8SC

    Heard on the radio last week that chrysler want to put a team and car into the tin tops. Is this 100% confirmed, anyone know the details? With Chrysler getting over $5billion bailout from the GFC I'm sure they have enough money for a team!

    It maybe to replace Holdens. Bring them on. Ford could still win Championship when it was 10 Fords against 19 Holdens so a Mercedes hand me down does not worry us.

    At least they actually sell a front-engine-rear-drive-V8-four-door-sedan that they could enter - 300C is a bit of a brick though...

    I welcome this latest development. I might even start watching V8s again!

    Kelly Brothers first to jump ship and into bed with Nissan.Finally resolved the David Reynolds saga and released him to Bottle O Racing.

    I wouldn't be surprised if that Chrysler headline was thrown out there last week as a decoy.The heat was on the Nissan story and they weren't ready to reveil it.Gary Rogers sells Nissan's and has a good alliance with the brand and is also a good sport,so may have thrown it out there to take the focus off the real story developing.Sound familiar?

    Chrysler V8 drops cylinders when not needed perhaps they were afraid it would not pick them up again.

    I think Chrysler reintroduced the Dodge Charger in 2012
