2014 Chrysler 300 SRT Is Bad To The Core

2014 Chrysler 300 SRT Satin Vapor Edition

Back in 1955, the Chrysler C-300 cut a swath with its “Forward Look” styling and powerful HEMI V8 engine. It was essentially a NASCAR racer homologated for purpose with a limited run of street cars – a true muscle car, nearly a decade before the Pontiac GTO flashed its tail.

BMW 335i GT xDrive Improves The Quintessential Sport Sedan

BMW 335i GT

Infiniti Q60 Convertible

Roxy, Gaywheels own exclusive canine auto journalist, may be just a dog to some but she knows what she wants and more often than not that is the utmost in luxury. The 2014 Infiniti Q60 folding hardtop convertible provided her with just that and more as this is one of the few luxury convertibles that she is even allowed to ride in as it has a leather lined back seat not all that suitable for anything more than small children but perfect for a 44 pound boxer rescued from Boxer Rescue Los Angeles.
