The 1970 Dodge Charger was no lead sled. With a top speed of about 140 mph and 0 to 60 times in the mid 5 seconds, the Charger was an enthusiastic performer. Of course, that was 1970 and aside from making appearances in the Fast and Furious, supercars reign supreme now. Which brings us to the question, can a nearly 4000 lb, go fast in a straight line ever be made into a supercar? The folks at Wisconsin’s SpeedKore apparently think so and have created arguably one of the most bad-ass Chargers ever. Underneath the carbon-fiber and aluminum body is a fire-breathing 9.0-liter marine engine with twin-huffers providing adequate amounts of forced induction. This equates to almost 1700 hp, people. But what goes fast must also slow down and hauling in all of the go-fast are pizza sized Baer disc-brakes. We aren’t quite sure on the name, though, as it implies a screaming toddler. But we’ll take it.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
