Default Who is it?

So this may seem like a bit of a dumb question but I am unable to find the answer... Who is the Carroll Shelby of dodge? I mean seriously? Chevy had Yanko and a few others I'm sure, Ford primarily had Shelby, Roushe, and Saleen. Who did dodge/Chrysler have, or did they just not have any special person that was renowned for making dodges awesome?

Hennessey...

SRT and Mopar kind of do more for Dodge than both Ford and Chevy's performance trims... They are brands and SRT used to be called PVO (Performance Vehicle Operations).

A few little companies here and there.

They also had Carroll Shelby. While his name has more recently become closely associated with Ford due to the Shelby Mustang, he was a had a major hand in the development of the first Viper along with the high performance turbo dodge models of the 1980s and 1990s.

BTW, Yenko is a Honda dealership now.

I forgot to mention that Shelby has his hands in the first Viper's beginning.
