Antony Morfin's grandfather got him hooked on Mopar when he was a young boy raised in Guadalajara, Mexico. The 1969 Dodge Charger his grandfather owned felt like a spaceship to a young Morfin, and he's been hooked ever since. The first Fast & Furious movie cemented his love for modified cars, and when he moved to Las Vegas at the age of 18, he set his sights on the coolest car culture America had to offer. When he brought home the 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 to show his father and grandfather, they were both excited to see his modern Mopar. It wasn't long before he started modifying.
Morfin’s original dream car was a Mazda RX-8, largely thanks to Needs for Speed video games. Unfortunately, he found out that the RX-8 was just a little too compact for him, so he turned his attention to America’s baddest muscle cars. After shopping around, he picked up a 2006 Dodge Charger as his first car. He found the V6 Charger to be too slow and too boring for him, so in a few years he upgraded to a V8-powered 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8.
In just two short years since taking ownership of the car, Morfin has changed the car inside and out to suit his tastes. The most noticeable modification from the outside is the addition of a Liberty Walk widebody kit, finished off in a completely custom one-of-a-kind vinyl wrap thanks to Skepple Design. Of course, the aesthetic additions don’t stop there. A Hellcat hood, custom front splitter, and halo headlights add some aggressive styling to the front end, and CCW SP16 3-piece wheels complete the look at ground level, tucked nicely to the body thanks to Air Lift Performance air suspension and V2 management.
Cipher Auto seats and harnesses secure driver and passenger in the cabin, and a unique cut-to-fit marble flooring sets the interior apart at the shows. Complete with a Kicker and Alpine audio system, as well as a custom trunk setup for the air system, the Challenger is a true show-stopper, frequently taking home awards in and around Las Vegas.
