It’s alive!

A Frankenstein classic car

It caught my eye one day when I was out for a ride on my Busa passing through Hartford, WI. Of course I had to turn around to grab some pictures. The ‘Cuda is the base car and a real quick look at it did not show any major signs of rust. Ok, I can see doing a bit special on the hood with the Dart parts but when he added the fins, I’m out. If you take a close look at the pics I shot of the fins, he did not do a very good job grafting them on. But hey, who am I to judge? It’s his car and as long as the guy is happy with it, let ‘er rip tatter chip.

Not knowing what was under the hood, I would say the car is worth maybe a grand with a large portion of that being the rear window. These are just about impossible to find. I wonder what kind of response he would get if he took it to a Mopar show. Hey maybe this is his idea of a Halloween prank. Boo.

      So would I Stephen. It was parked on a street that I go by on my motorcycle rides and it was a short time after that when it wasn’t there anymore. What happened to it, I have no idea. Thanks for stopping by and tell your friends.
