Not sure if this a Cuda or Challenger but it seems that it requires some tlc.

Rotisserie made easy
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 outer one had to be altered for the large tires.
Factory rear tire size and the new size.

63 Riviera that the owner has had for 25 years! 3rd owner. Last time it was on the road the owner made a trip to a Riviera show in Lake Tahoe, on to San Francisco and up the coast. Great road trip in a very cool car. It's currently getting a makeover with new paint and interior.
Check out the sensor for the auto headlights on top of the dash.
Then the neighbor said he has an old truck. Lets have a look.
55 Chevrolet pickup that has sunk to the floorboards.
This trunk was driven down from the interior not that many years ago. Amazing what the elements can do to a vehicle.
Darn, someone stole the battery!
Nothing a little spit and polish can't take care of.
It seems this owner likes to collect cars too,
55 Chevrolet 210 with Bel Air trim. 350 4sp. Doesn't it scream American Grafitti !
and a 67 Camaro RS awaiting it's turn.

After many years of hibernation Johnn'y Dodge's Bee has recently seen some progress.
Way to go JD! Don't stop now.
Calling car 3? Car 3, Car 3?
1962 Plymouth Police car out of the U.S that has been restored. This owner has numerous Vintage Emergency Vehicles that are used for parades, displays, weddings, movies and community events.
Nice to see them restored and not robbed for their valuable parts.

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.
Fiberglass flip front end and a big block.
A couple of old timers resting.

Cool Dart GT Convertible
