Mr. Norm's 1968 GSS Hemi Dart Mr. Norm's 1968 GSS Hemi Dart returns to the street! I grew up on the South side of Chicago and would hang out at Grand Spaulding Dodge on 3300 West Grand Avenue when I could. My nights were spent cruising at Skipps Drive Inn on South Side or cruising down North Avenue on the North side of Chi-Town.

I know this first hand and I can still remember hearing it coming from two blocks away.
