I would like to thank Tom for this cool site and Mopar Muscle for putting my car in their mag. My 63 has actually been in Mopar Muscle twice in just little skits and thats because they saw it on here. The last time was the biggest as it was the 2016 January issue in the Pentastar rides as they had about a half page and two pics of my car. It has all helped to work up to my latest venture as its a good chance I may make the April 2018 issue. One of the guys who does pics for Mopar Muscle saw my car at an indoor car show last December and asked me if I would like about a 4 page article in Mopar Muscle ? Like he did not have to ask me twice ! shock Heck yea ! Well the guy did the photo shoot about 2 months ago and I heard from them about it. They have been super nice and wanted to make sure all my story was right which I was glad to talk with them and make sure my info was correct. So if my luck stays good I may make the April 2018 issue or maybe within a few months of that. I cant thank Tom and Mopar Muscle enough. bow Ron

Congrats up I had a similar story when my 69 Cuda got featured in Mopar Muscle back in June 2014. Geoff Stunkard was down in Florida and was doing an article on painting stripes on cars verse decal stripe from a local restoration shop. He asked them about local car guys and someone mention my name and he called me. He was doing articles for Hot Rod Magazine also for the feature this guys garage which I got featured in on Nov. 2013. When he did the Hot Rod article he fell in Love with my Cuda and did a shoot at the same time for Mopar Muscle. I have had some very nice restored cars that I though would have been what a magazine would have wanted. Man was I wrong he loved my old
" STREAK FREAK BLOWN CUDA " Which has survived it as built status since 1976.

It's cool to see real driven Hot Rods make magazine articles. drive

Congrats. Unfortunately I will end my subscription when it runs out. Can't stand all the articles on cars guys spent 100k and every car has a Hemi. Would much rather read a story about your car, someones 70 Fury GT, or just about anything else.

Thanks again for the kind replies as I appreciate it. The story should be in the 2018 April issue of Mopar Muscle they think. Its on line now as I just went to Mopar Muscle on facebook. There is a few small mistakes but most of it turned out very good. One is that is says my rear rims are 17's which of course they are not as they are 15's. But no big deal as they did a great job and I thank them very much. And I thank all on here very much also. Ron
