1972 Plymouth Duster - 340 Wedge Power

One of the many reasons we love classic cars is that each one tends to have a fascinating story behind it. Some cars are preserved untouched in garages for decades, without leaving the town where they were originally sold. Others were driven every day and abandoned in a scrap yard, only to be lovingly restored by a new owner many years later. These stories add character to every machine. The … Continue reading »

1970 Road Runner - Purple & Numbers-Matching

One of our favorite things about classic Mopar cars is their unabashed use of bright, head-turning colors. These cars were not afraid to show off their "in your face" attitude, with famous High Impact colors such as Sublime, Vitamin C, Top Banana, and Plum Crazy. There's nothing subtle about a roaring V8, flashy chrome, and vibrant paint. The eye-catching 1970 Road Runner seen here belongs to Ricardo Torres, of Norwalk, California. … Continue reading »






1974 Duster - Mopar Family

We always enjoy seeing the enthusiasm for classic cars passed down from generation to generation. This family trait ensures these vehicles are valued and cared for as they should be, even after being passed on from one owner to the next. The story of this 1974 Duster reinforces our thoughts on the subject. This classic Plymouth is owned by 17-year-old Connor Davis, of Santa Ana, California. Connor is still in high … Continue reading »

For many of us, high school was an exciting time, thanks to the independence of finally being able to drive. There was no more requirement to ride a bike or beg friends and family to drop you off—with your first car, the world was your oyster. Most of us eventually got used to that feeling of total freedom as we got older. However, for the owner of this 1966 Valiant Signet—Tom Groseclose, of … Continue reading »

'64 Valiant Convertible - Perky Plymouth

One of the things we love about classic cars is their wide range of variation in shapes, sizes, and styles. Some classic cars appear aggressive and muscular, with wide flared fenders and gaping grill openings, while others appear poised and refined, with intricate chrome ornaments and sweeping lines. If we had to use a single word to describe this 1964 Plymouth Valiant, that word would be cheerful. The wide-set round headlights, bright red … Continue reading »






Dodge Challenger Parts Restore Mopar Muscle

Back in the heyday of the muscle car, it took Dodge a while to catch up with the Mustang, but it's said that perfection takes time. Thanks to the efforts of product planners, designers and stylists who gave it progressive styling, tapered high-back bucket seats, powerful engines, and an all-out muscle car demeanor, Dodge Challenger was the hottest automobile Chrysler Corporation had ever produced. When Dodge design boss Bill Brownlie introduced the all-new Challenger to the automotive press in … Continue reading »
