I have not seen this car for some time, unfortunatley it's in the same spot as last time i saw it. Owner has had the car for many years and hopes to have it restored one day.
 
It's a factory FM3 Pink car! 340 4sp, bench seat.
 
 
I am not sure on how many pink Dusters were made in Canada but there were ony 414 made in the U.S.
 
Here is what the car looked like when it was new.

Carl at Maximum collision has recently come up with a great idea for a rotisserie for his Nova wagon streeet rod. We all know how hard it is to get to the bottom of a car for restoration work. Rotisserie's have been around for some time, however buying one would most likley require some alteration for your particular vehicle. Not to mention the cost. Here is a great example made of exhaust tubing and some steel.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Being an octagon it can be rolled with 2 people and would need a 10' ceiling to roll over. A fairly straight forward project to get your car up in the air.
 
Here you can see the alterations made to the rear wheel tubs to allow for the bigger tire.
 
 
An extra stock frame rail being added for strength as the...

When this enthusiast found a 69 Coronet 500 383 in Santa Cruz CA the decision was made to drive it home.  Almost home near Bellingham it started to snow!   6 inches of the white stuff quickly made the decision for him to find a safe place to park it.  How people drove these cars back then all year around I will never know.
 
 
383 , Buckets and console, Vinyl roof, Magnums.
 
 
After removing the engine for a detail and cleaning up the firewall it looks good as new.
 
 
Here is another local Dart being reborn.

I have driven past this house for 20 years and noticed the 1966 Satelite behind the R.V. Many years ago there was another 66 Satelite 2 streets over that I tried to buy. After making an offer I was told to call back the next day. Well I called back and after a short conversation was told the car was not for sale! I guess my offer was to low as the car dissapeared a few days later.
 
This Satelite was bought new by the current owner. 318, buckets and console. Unfortunatley the B.C weather has not been good to the old Mopar. Like to see it back on the road one day.
 
 
 
The owner also has this nice 1967 Fairlane 390 GT that he has had for 18 years.
 
 
 
 
Here is another enthusiast with a few toys.

 Charger 340
 
Cool Dart GT Convertible
 
Johnny Dodge's 70 Bee that was a driver until, under some Bad Influence, decided to make it a racer. Unfortunatley that was 20 years ago and has not seen any progres since.

Thinking of Selling your home that has a shop or multiple garages?  Let's market your...
