Shotgun's Car of the Day - Kenny Chesney's Dodge Dart Swinger 340

 
Shotgun's Car of the Day - Kenny Chesney's Dodge Dart Swinger 340

Here comes THE MAN!! Along with the Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves at Blossom on June 20. It's going to be a great show!


Couple of years ago, Kenny had a big hit with "You and Tequila Make Me Crazy". He recorded the song with the loverly Grace Potter. I had asked Mr. Chesney about the Dodge Dart he drives in the video for the song. Kenny admitted to me that he's not much of a car guy but he said he wanted to be driving a small, '60s or '70s type muscle car in the video. The little gold Dodge was what the producers of the video found for the shoot.

 

While not my idea of what he should've driven in the vid, the Swinger 340 was an underrated and underappreciated little screamer. For 1970, the Dart Swinger 340 was the performance model in the Dart lineup. It came with a 275 horse, 340 4 barrel V8, front disc brakes heavy duty "Rallye" suspension, and the awesome Mopar, 3.23:1 Sure Grip rear axle.

 

Also, in the video, Grace Potter is driving a replica of a Porsche 356 Speedster. BTW, this is NOT a replica of the infamous "James Dean Porsche". That car, btw, was a 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder.

See the cars and the entire video below. After the show, WGAR is all Kenny Chesney through midnight. Enjoy! And please...take it easy on the tequila!
