Good thing too, otherwise we’d have a lot of blank pages in the magazine. While that would help our bottom line, thanks to savings on ink, we felt our readers deserved better than blank pages—even though that option would allow them to add their own content and bad jokes.Lessee, where were we? Oh yeah, Mopars At The Strip. Like we said, good thing there was a lot going on. Too much, in fact, to squeeze into the palty number of pages that we hand-staple together every month to create what is loosely called in the industry, a “magazine.”Anyhow, we had these extra pictures that we couldn’t fit in the issue, that we’re bringing to you now as a bonus. And you can thank the web editor (whoever that may be this week) for this. Actually, these were pictures that had fallen on the floor and were overlooked when we put together the feature for the mag, and would have been included if we had bothered to look for them in the first place.
So, in the words of our immortal tech editor, we’ll let the photos (and captions when we can think of one) do the talking.

Mopar Action’s pick of the show was Murray Lichty’s ’05 Yellow Fever SRT10 Ram. Murray cad-designed, modeled and fabricated his own 2-stage nitrous system, and beefed the motor to take the added HP. Add-ons include a VEC-3 Viper engine calibration computer, B&M shifter, Caltrac traction bars and home-fabbed a bed-mounted sliding tray to easily refill the nitrous bottles. He also modified the air filter housing to accept a K&N filter. Another feature, easily overlooked, is the bar he fabricated behind the seats to mount the safety harnesses.
