How It's Made: Hurst Hemi Dodge Challenger - Click above for a high resolution gallery

At SEMA last year, the legendary shifter company Hurst made huge waves with its Hemi Challenger. We've been following Hurst's progress of the cars ever since, and even got the chance to get behind the wheel of the prototype car for a brief stint. We recently made the trip down to Hurst Performance Vehicles' headquarters in Irvine, CA to see just how stock Challengers are transformed into one of their limited edition muscle cars.

You might think that Hurst would be hard pressed to find customers in today's economy, but we were surprised to see their building overflowing with Challengers. There were completely stock cars that had just been delivered, cars getting superchargers and suspension upgrades, and plenty of complete cars waiting to be delivered to their lucky new owners.

Hurst was kind enough to give us a full tour of the facility, and showed us exactly what goes into making one of their Challengers, whether it's a base Series 2 model or a full blown Series 5 with all the bells and whistles. Follow us on our tour in the gallery below, which includes high-res photographs and detailed descriptions that follow a Hurst Challenger from start to finish.

It reminds me of those Hertz Mustangs that you could rent for the day. I wish I could rent one of those Challengers. :wub:

The ideal garage, or at least one:

A Shelby Hertz Mustang (original) an olds Hurst 442 Pace car convertible (70 or 72) and a modern Hurst Challenger.

GM, Ford, and Chrysler, one of the best designs from each...

THAT would be cool.
