Mr. Norms latest creations are a pair of convertibles based off the 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8, the 426 Hemi Dodge Challenger and Hemi Cuda Convertibles.  Taking design cues from the original 426 Hemi Challenger and 426 Hemi Cuda these vehicles are a modern rendition of the mighty Mopars which use to roam the streets in the 70's.  Each of these Challenger based vehicles incorporate E-body design elements from the early 70's including a new grille inspired by the 1971 model for the Hemi Cuda Version, a shaker hood system, Hemi billboard graphics and '71 Hemi Cuda taillight assemblies.  Both vehicles receive a set of 20-inch forged multi-piece Mr. Norm's "Thrust" custom wheels with ultra high performance Pirelli tires.

Under the hood of both vehicles sits the 426 Hemi V-8 which utilizes a forged rotating assembly and a Kenne Bell supercharger that pumps out 725 horsepower.  Keeping each of these vehicles firmly planted on the groundis Mr. Norm's Hi Performance Rear Suspension system.  The rear suspension utilizes the Viper SRT-10 spec Dana 44 differential mated to heavy duty driveshaft and half shafts.

On the inside the 426 Hemi Challenger and Hemi Cuda convertibles feature Katzkin black custom leather and suede seats accented with yellow top stitching along with a real pistol grip shifter.
