Hamilton, New Zealand - May 17, 2018 /PressCable/ —

The Plymouths are back! These old beasts haven’t lost the slightest of edge over the decades, and will be on display along with other beauties of the drag racing era at the 2018 edition of the Carlisle Chrysler Nationals. To celebrate the occasion, Quarter Mile Addiction, the maker of premium T-shirts and merchandise for drag racing fans, has brought out an exclusive Legends of 1968 Hoodies and accessories. For more info https://www.quarter-mile-addiction.com/first-muscle-car-legend-series

For Carlisle Chrysler Nationals, this year is extra special, as it celebrates 50 glorious years of some of the best known dragsters, muscle cars, classics and even new brands. Of special note are the 1968 Dodge Dart, Dodge Super Bee, Dodge Charger, Plymouth Barracuda and the Plymouth Road Runner. The exhibition is expected to attract thousands of visitors to the famed Carlisle Fairgrounds between July 13-15, 2018 in what will be a mopar lover’s paradise.

The Plymouth Super Stock Barracuda featured on the ‘Legends of 1968’ T-shirt has a memorable history. This was one of the cars that Don Grotheer steered and galloped to victory at the 1969 NHRA Winternationals. A year back, Plymouth had taken 70 Barracudas and converted them for a new war, adorned with streaks of red, white and blue. The cars came to be known as the ‘A-bomb’ and are still seen racing in their own class today.

The legendary SS Barracuda features on the new T-shirt, so that visitors to the Carlisle Chrysler Nationals can walk into the exhibition with a new style, or bring home the old excitement with a wallpaper and mobile cover. The merchandise features five legendary Dodge and Plymouth cars that made history in 1968 – the 1968 models of SS Barracuda, Plymouth Roadrunner, Dodge Coronet/Superbee, Dodge Charger and the SS Dart.

Quarter Mile Addiction will not only make the Carlisle edition more special, but is looking forward to the other three big events of the year: the Mopar Nationals, Mopar Fest, and the NHRA US Nationals. Fans can visit the official website for more updates and new launches that will be happening soon.

The ‘Legends of 1968’ T-shirt and accessories are available in a limited edition from the official Quarter Mile Addiction online store. All merchandise is available with global shipping in 3-5 days, and urgent deliveries are available.

China aircraft carrier pilots complete first night missions

May 25, 2018

BEIJING — Chinese navy pilots aboard the country's sole operating aircraft carrier have completed their first nighttime takeoffs and landings, state media reported Friday. The missions were hailed by state media as a major step forward in the combat ability of the Liaoning, which was bought as a mostly empty hull from Ukraine and commissioned in 2012 along with its flight wing. In a video released late Thursday, J-15 fighter jets were shown taking off and landing in the darkness, their afterburners glowing. Nighttime missions on aircraft carriers are considered far more difficult and dangerous than those in the daytime....
