History Repeats

 Remember when Dodge brought out the Tomohawk concept motorcycle? A Viper engine in a motorcycle chassis with a projected top speed of 400 mph, what gearhead couldn't not love it? It came out of nowhere, showing that Chrysler engineering has a mean streak a mile wide

 Turns out there's a bit of a history behind the Tomohawk that not many people know about. Once upon a time, 1934 to be exact, Plymouth supplied one of it's six cylinder engines to Fred Luther, a Californian attempting to break 300 mph on a motorcycle.

 The full story is at Allpar.com. With the fate of Chrysler now hanging in the balance, it would be a shame to see a company with such a rich history go the way of so many before it.
