Quintin Brothers Auto and Performance wanted a tricky Dodge Challenger, which they had put together with their partner ProCharger, to the show Their plans and their hard work seemed to have been thwarted on early October 30, when a thief with the entire ProCharger stand and ran away from a Ford F-250 with its 1,000 hp Challenger Showcar attached to a trailer ossen was Speed Society .
Only eleven hours later, the police cornered the missing car and its driver in a parking garage. According to the Las Vegas Review Journal the suspect Jesse Grano rammed the police before they could get out of their patrol car and let parts of the front end fly. The Challenger then raced off, but was found abandoned a short time later. Grano was later taken up for an independent attempted murder .
He had a busy week.
All these activities left more than a few bumps and scratches on the Challenger, as reported by Cole Quintin in the Las Vegas News : "We were in shock, we could not imagine that something like that could ever happen, "said Quintin. "It looks like they lived in the thing, but they only had it about eleven hours."
He says they still plan to show it on the SEMA show 2019 with the damage and everything to demonstrate how much the car can handle it.
The brothers now proudly display the car, which is wrapped in police tape and whose front panel lacks significant parts. The battered Challenger has become a fan favorite of the series and is now likely to pay more attention than if it had arrived intact.
This story is so uplifting that it should be turned into a children's book. Take it from this battered Dodge Challenger, kids: no matter how broken you are, if you show up and show a brave face and try your best, people will still admire you.
