Sorry to hear that, Troy. Was looking forward to seeing this finished, though not nearly as much as you, I'm sure. Can't wait to see the next ones!

Living a stress-free life is the key to longevity.

Keep it rolling...


Looking for a 1970 Polara vert..

Tony sorry to hear this happen.

I witnessed this with my brother's Superbird and it was a bigger nightmare than what you experienced - parts stolen off the car, poor prep work, increased costs, off schedule - you name it.

Luckily we have found quality guys now.

Congrats on the 500

We had a similar experience with a body shop on my Dads 65 426 Plymouth, shop owner lying, poor prep then basically stole the car and disappeared. Had to go to the Eastern Ky. Mountains to track him down, with the police involved to the car back. It was a mess. Sorry to hear about the Bird, hopefully the next project goes much better.

Operation Superbird; last night home.
Been working like a mad-man to get the car into a state to transport to California tomorrow. The car hauler is showing up around noon. After which, I can bring home my new 1969 Charger 500 and pull the trigger on my next Mopar. Man, did a lot over a weekend... So closed another chapter in the Hawkes-Mopar saga..
