There was a 4 calendar year time period from 1986 through 1990 when these 3 cars saved every single other firm, tucked absent in a non-descript storage building around an industrial place in Yakima, WA.
This grainy, awful (and priceless) image tells the tale about how the Charger, a 1969 ½ 440 6-Pack Super Bee, and a 1967 440 4-speed Plymouth GTX had been in storage with each other when I went again to college many miles absent.
Early in 1983 I persuaded my dad we required a family job that we could turn wrenches with each other on and potentially turn a profit at the conclude. I uncovered a 1967 Plymouth GTX in “rough” problem and immediately after 2 yrs of sweat, cash, and exertion, it turned out awesome.
Very unexpectedly, I uncovered an previous drag racer with a stable 1969 ½ 440 6-Pack Super Bee (ran 11’s) in 1985 and with some luck persuaded him to sell it to us. An additional calendar year later with much more sweat, much more dollars and much more exertion, it also turned out awesome.
This remarkable Trio remained with each other, dusty and frozen in time, until early 1991 when each the Super Bee and GTX had been marketed.
I typically imagine of the heady times when I owned, at minimum partially, 4 traditional muscle mass cars, (my day by day driver was a 1969 G.T.O.) but some of my fondest recollections are of the times my dad and I expended with each other restoring the GTX and Super Bee.
