1969 Dodge Coronet R/T
This car was found under cover in a yard in Washington State.
This is a factory 1969 Dodge Coronet R/T and is a sound rust free car for our Mopar Muscle restoration project.
We would like to eventually replace it's factory 440 cubic inch 375 HP engine with a HEMI 426 engine with a four speed A833 18 spline stick shift.
My records show that only 2450 of these were produced as 4 speed cars.
Originally a 11.00 second quarter mile drag race car, this car will be restored as a "Super Bee" super stock clone with it's factory style lift off "Six Pack" fiberglass hood.
Many thanks to my late friend Ron Skala of Yakima Washington USA for locating this vehicle and Mike Hill for allowing me to buy the car.
1933 Plymouth PD Coupe
This 1933 Plymouth coupe was originally a speedway car in Northern
California in the 1960s.
Bob Dill drove this car in the Sacramento area of California and provided these pictures. Bob couldn’t believe that this car was still around and was now in the southern hemisphere.
Many Thanks To Art Carlson in California for allowing me to purchase this vehicle.
Thanks also go to all of my American friends Steve Hayes and a special and missed late friend, Ron Skala who assisted me with this project. Thanks also to Blake Espinoza for delivering it to Seattle for me.

1966 Hallet V-Drive Boat
In 2005, I purchased a 1966 Hallet, 18 foot flat bottom V-drive boat which was located in California USA.
"Heat Wave" will undergo an engine transformation.
It started life with a BBC and will now be equipped with a Chrysler 392 HEMI engine. The engine will be dressed with a BDS 6-71 Supercharger and the usual HOT HEADS engine and dress up components.
I have been collecting HEMI marine items for this project for a number of years now and some Aussie hot rod friends visiting the USA in 2006 found some additional items for me.
Thanks for the wild exhaust system and marine hemi parts Craig and Tim.
Hopefully the boat have its dip in the water sometime in the near future.
