In Pat’s words...

The ‘68 Roadrunner was the first car that I started with.   It came out of Pennsylvania and was a real rust bucket.  I hired Tom Abel, a restorer of old Mopars, to help me with that one.  Around the same time, I ran across a Cuda that someone had as his mom's daily driver.  Now this was at the same time I was restoring the Roadrunner but, I couldn’t resist so I decided to restore the Cuda on my own.

My son was given the Challenger to restore from his long time best friend. But, after four years of sitting in my driveway with no progress, I told him it could not sit there forever.  So, he gave it to me to restore.  I took on that job as well although I had to sell the ‘68 Roadrunner for funds to restore the Challenger. It was all worth is as I now have a beautiful red ‘69 Roadrunner to replace the one I had to sell.
