A couple of guys were sitting around one day discussing their various hobbies and projects when it occurred to them that they had some very diverse interests. In trying to figure out how to merge the ideas of gaming and cars, UncannyDodge was born. A play on words, UncannyDodge was drawn from two primary sources: a game mechanic in D&D and from the fact that our first project car was a Dodge. From there, the group expanded as did our scope of interests. UD now covers multiple car projects, events, autocross racing, LAN gaming parties, RPG resources, reviews, and a web comic. Who knows what we'll come up with next?
So far, our projects have included turbocharging a Dodge Daytona, outfitting a Jeep Cherokee for road tripping and winter duty, fixing a neglected TJ, upgrading a Toyota Tercel (because reasons), and doing various upgrades and maintenance tasks on our daily drivers. There has even been a race car in the mix. It's been quite a ride so far.
