Kenny Wayne loves his muscle cars, so it’s no wonder then he has a pair of Dodge Chargers, both from the same era but with a unique personalities. The 1972 Charger that went missing was custom built by Ted Moser’s Picture Car Warehouse. Kenny has been personally involved in the design and assembly of the Charger. Everything from tear down to exterior-interior design, selection of parts and reassembly was done in his presence.
Under the hood is a fuel-injected Hemi V-8 with 525 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual transmission from a Viper was bolted to the Hemi, completing the drivetrain. The steering rack and suspension components, including a four-link setup, was custom built for the car, and brakes were provided by Wilwood. The Charger rides on one-off Foose "Challenger" wheels shod with BF Goodrich tires.
A 1969 Extreme Lee, popularly known for its role in the Hollywood flick "Dukes of Hazard" was first unveiled at the 2004 SEMA show. This car is unique, hand-painted, customized and modern reincarnation of the original "General Lee".
A 1970 Plymouth Duster is one of his latest creations. The car has been restored to former glory with help from Ted Moser’s Picture Car Warehouse and Chip Foose. The Duster received a two-tone paint job, FOOSE design wheels, custom brakes, radiator and a Bowler transmission among others.
Kenny Wayne’s daily driver is 2010 Dodge Challenger SRT-8. However, it isn’t stock either, as this special Challenger has a Magnuson supercharger, reworked Hotchkis TVS suspension, Foose custom wheels, a Magnaflow exhaust and custom valve covers and shifter.
