Mopar’s in the Park in Stillwater, Minnesota
We took two 1968 cars to Mopar’s in the Park, the biggest All Mopar Car Show in the Midwest. The Dodge Coronet has a 512 CI V8 engine and is a 3-speed automatic. The Plymouth Barracuda has a 340 engine and is a 727 automatic. These cars were received exceptionally well by the crowd of Mopar enthusiasts, and we were thrilled to be part of such an awesome event. We even got to chat with some previous customers about their cars as well!

Expansions & Updates
We are constantly growing the business and thankfully we’ve been able to expand to continue to provide the best quality care and custody for our customers vehicles and parts. We now have an off-site warehouse to serve as extra storage, and we are transitioning our old onsite warehouse into a state-of-the-art Parts Department as well. Be sure to follow us on our social media pages to stay up to date with all these changes!
TIG welding is used to make precise, critical welds when joining metals such as mild steel, aluminum, or stainless steel. We recently added the Miller Multimatic 220 AC/DC tig welder to our arsenal. This model is highly portable so we can use it all around the shop and with it being a tig welder we can ensure the cleanest tacks and welds with all our work.

Featured Build | 1970 Chevy Nova
Mike’s wife got a second dog. He got this Nova as a retirement present. A common mod in the 70s was a fiberglass hood with a cowl induction scoop. Lighter weight for sure and MCR made it work with factory hood hinges as dealing with four hood pins is definitely not Mint. The engine powering the Nova is an 11-1 compression 383 stroker small block Chevy, that makes 415 horsepower and 425-foot pounds of torque still retaining an old school Holley 670 Street Avenger carb with vacuum secondaries. The trans is a turbo 350 that ends with a 9-inch Moser rear housing a 3.50 gear set. Click the title to read more about this restoration.
Featured Build | 1966 Ford Fairline GT
A partial definition of a “period piece” is something, especially a work of art, that dates from or evokes a historical period. Car people would just call it “old school”. In other words, it’s been done like it used to be “back in the day”. Front wheels are 7 x 17-inch American Racing Shelby Cobra’s. You almost have to get up close to see that they aren’t true knockoffs. The Shelby wheels are wrapped in a 215/50R17 up front and 245/45R17 out back giving the Fairlane a perfect stance. This is a period correct 427 with the proper date codes for a 1966 model year Fairlane. Click the title to read more about this restoration.
