my dad had a dakota sport in barney purple which he took me out on a long, straight alberta back road an wrapped the speedo at 235km/h when i was maybe 11 or 12 and no one ever believed me that it was that fast. bet the RT could top 155mph

The Dakota has never been a “mini truck”... the Dakota has always been mid sized... that was always its big selling point, it was bigger than the S-10, Ranger and all of the Japanese competition, but smaller than the full sized trucks. Even the first gen Colorado is smaller than the Dakota, and you could get a 5.3 LS derived V8 in those... I’m not knocking the Dakota, my dad had a 1990 he bought new and it had almost 400k miles on it when he “traded” it during cash for clunkers (and no, I’ll never forgive him for that, lol) and this is absolutely a gorgeous R/T Dakota... but it’s not a mini truck.

Christ. It’s a Dakota pickup. Pristine or not, throw some tools and tires in the back and use the truck!

Nice Truck.. I have a 99 RT ... body off Resto done.. now we are finishing the engine.. Stroked 5.9 to 408 CI...computer modeling on the build Suggests 625 HP with 550 FT LBS of torque... Everything in the engine has been heavily modified to ...Heads flow over 310 CFM NHRA SS heads .. We also went with an LD 340 Single plane intake and port matched it.. Yes I know the LD. is for an LA Engine.. we had to re drill out the bolt holes and use Epoxy to make them fit right... Everything is trick... 3 years in the making...Hopefully I don't blow it up...gonna set the rev limiter to 6500 RPM .. cheers... I did the same with my bow flex...lol

My brother in law had a 99 Durango with the 5.9 and only 80k miles. I told him that if he was going to get a new truck not to trade it in because I would buy it from him. Well he traded it in anyway and they gave him peanuts for it. He bought it from the original owner for only $2400 too. The body and interior were almost just as perfect like this Dakota R/T. Now he wishes he never traded it in lol.

Err hoovie the reason they don’t use the materials they used to was because a lot of it was sourced by the household suppliers, unfortunately due to what they treated the seats in at that time to make them hard wearing also had a strong link to cancer

Why have I lost interest in Hoovie's Garage? Maybe it's that he is rich enough to buy and restore amazing cars and kind of shows off a bit too much. Maybe the 'omg what did I do" doesn't play so much anymore? Maybe that he is becoming a little less like me and more like the golf club jerks I loathe? Is this what wealth does to people? So, until next time...

Not the same purpose or mission, and not nearly as fun. But GM put a 5.3 V8 in as an option for 2009. Which was at a time when many manufactures were getting rid of their V8 options

Another thing they should have done two with the RT Dodge Dakota was made a convertible option those would have sold too I know they did them in the early nineties the convertible Dakotas but the RT Dakota convertible that would be a nice truck to have if they ever made it.
