1990 Plymouth Acclaim
1990 Plymouth Acclaim
Why? That is the first question I get from most people asking me why would I restore a 1990 Plymouth plain wrapper Acclaim. Two reasons; turns out this car is somewhat of a pseudo unicorn, and second is for the cheap thrill of horsepower pulling Gs. Turns out this Acclaim was built with a factory 5 speed trans along with a 2.5L Turbo. The icing on the cake is a factory sunroof. These options estimate that this is 1 of 112 cars built. The car came from the southwestern US prior to coming to MN. I can say that restoring this car and not fixing any rust was a real treat. Example- the banjo exhaust bolts actually came off without breaking, in fact the same original bolts were reused when bolting on the new exhaust system.
Turbo Dodge; The Turbo Dodge following is strong. What draws me to this facet of the car hobby is the challenge of achieving horsepower as frugally as possible. The resulting Gs via turbo boost is real. By using only Mother Mopar used parts from different models is the trick and widely shared. A perfect example is what was done here with this Acclaim. While the factory produced this car with a turbo producing 7-8 PSI of boost, post Mother Mopar mods the car now produces 15-16PSI of neck snapping boost. Sheer thrill while still getting over 30MPS when used as a daily driver.
Turbo gurus know that replacing the one piece intake with a Mopar two piece intake, using an intercooler from a '90 VNT Daytona, (that directly bolts in to this Acclaim with no cutting needed), swapping the air box from another model you are half way there. Next is bolting on a Mopar-used bigger turbo with a 2.5" swapped swing valve, a ported head, bigger Mopar injectors, improved oil lines, and finally special injector wiring etc. the thrill starts to become real. As mentioned above this car also received new 2.5" exhaust with no Cat. The goal is no warming up the credit car at Jeggs or Summit. Ick!
The interior on this Acclaim, because it was from the southwest US, was baked. Here in the midwest a trip to U-Pull-Our Parts will yield you a nice used ES trim level interior that needs just a good cleaning, carpet and all, for $80 bucks. The headliner on this one was a challenge and gluing in new fabric was required. Still needed a new cardboard headliner because the original was so dry from the heat of the SW it simply crumbled when touched.
Below are pics of the car in before condition, being stripped to bare metal for a re-spray and a money shot of the head, intake and Turbo.

1914 Model T Speedster
1914 Ford Yella Model T Speedster.
In the fall of 2016 I rescued this Speedster from a farm 6 miles from me in an open woodshed. It had not run since 1975. I am the third owner. I spent that winter researching and semi restoring my first T. This has been a learned experience and I most definitely understand the “T” affliction
Titled as a 1914 this Model T Speedster has a low MN Pioneer license plate, 802,. The low number indicates an early ‘50s build. There is a show plate under the seat from 1955 for an AACA event in St. Peter, MN. The rear end is ’15, drive shaft ’13-’14, Hogs head ’14, Steering sector ’13-’14, frame ’19-’21. The motor has been validated to be a ’13-’14. No readable serial number. This determination was based on Model T Club membership physically viewing the engine. Fortunately I was able to verify the build with a few local car guys here in Minnesota and understand that a NOS motor was used for this build that was on a shelf in a wooden crate in Boege's garage in Pine City, MN. I have been told this was early Hot Rodding. So many parts and pieces of the car were still on the car with the exception of the coveted tool box. Things like, the hand air pump, extra speedometer, the Carbonate burner and step board gate were still on the car. The brass horn, the radiator and headlights were also still attached to the car. This past spring I went back to the farm, to search for parts and introduce myself to the new property owners. They had found a rear end that was on the car at one point in time, red in color. While loading the rear end I was walking buy a small hog shed surrounded by brush and upon peering in I noticed a yellow rusty toolbox sitting in the dirt. Needless to say I was able to acquire it along with some old tools inside and extra transmission bands. Very thankful for their willingness to help out a car guy
The car runs and drives down the road. The 6volt battery system I installed helps at crank starting. Surprisingly the mag works great and runs noticeably better in mag mode. The rear end should be rebuilt/inspected for the washer issue and the brakes should be overhauled. I have put 70 miles on the car at times reaching 34MPH. I took a club tour for 50 miles this past spring with little to no issues. The Speedster turns a lot of heads, especially with the monocle windshield. The last pic in the series is taken in 1968, note it is on the trailer I also now have. This pic is taken by the second owner who paid $500 for the car.

1970 Plymouth AAR Cuda
EV2 (Orange) Plymouth called Tor Red
The AAR Cuda was Plymouth's factory built race car for the All American Racing team (AAR) to participate in the Trans AM racing series put on by the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA). The single-production-year AAR Cuda was special for that purpose, and 2,724 were built, all during a five week period between March and April 1970.
I have had this AAR 12 years. Every nut and bolt has been turned during an extensive OEM over the top restoration. Restoration was completed in 2016. The color is Hemi Orange/TOR Red EV2- both fender tags, no build sheet. Yes #s matching 4 spd Trans, Non-born with 340 Six Barrel TA Motor (1970 only), 3:55 gears. 1 of 1,120 4 spds. Low optioned car built as a sales bank car. If you are new to the AAR/TA scene please research the rarity of the TA motors these cars came with. This car has one.
This is not a dealer flip auction car. This AAR is my AAR and was restored by me. Should you have additional questions on this car please feel free to use the contact form to email me or give me a call at 612-518-7425

It is a Chrome bumper standard dash, non console car. A couple of options to note are the dual mirrors and the light group. The light group particularily includes the fender mounted top turn signal indicators. Car was restored to as close to factory original as possible. The underside received a full finish vs. the dusting effect. It is extremely detailed. About the only thing left to do is the factory paint blotting and markings. The correct Master Cylinder (casting number 2229171), EXACT TA exhaust system, stud and nut combo used where required vs. a fender bolt, Stant gas cap, Gates vacuum hoses. correct white dot space saver spare, correct radiator (2998974). All correct restored 6 barrel carbs with proper finish and ink stamping. Even the original hemi rear leaf springs were rebuilt to ensure the exact part numbers were used. All stainless professionally show polished, restored and refinished steering wheel. AAR Cuda hood, Goodyear Polyglass tires. Chrysler labeled glass. The correct screws and clips were used throughout the build. While you were on your couch watching football or sitting in a bar playing bar bingo and banging bar sluts I was sorting nuts and bolts and sandblasting parts in the shop. The reverse/key lock mechanism works perfectly as it should. These are just some examples of the level of build performed.
Summer of 2016: First time out. This car has taken multiple 1st place trophies at car shows. Best Mopar Specialty Car (beating out all wing cars and other specialty built Mopars) at the Midwest Mopars National Show in Farmington, MN. Also 1st place at 30th Annual Muscle Car Classic- a very difficult judged car show where Mopar guys judge Mopars and Pontiac guys judge Pontiacs- The Cuda scored 94.5 making it near a #1 car which in most cases #1 cars are trailered. The Cuda was driven 55 miles to this show and got some bugs and dirt on the under carriage turning into the show.
2017 continue showing car winning multiple awards- 2017 Concours De'Elegance show attendee.
May 2016- Car is 100% complete and participates in 2016 show season

1968 GMC 2500 Pickup
1968 GMC 2500 305EV6 4x4. 100% frame off restoration. This was my late brother's Truck, Lost then found and restored. Converted from a manual non-power steering/brake to a 700R4 auto with power steering and power disc brakes. Ready to plow snow once again. well almost. I added the Smooth Paving Signs back on the truck. They are the exact same design as before. I did change the phone number to 1-800- Superman because back in the day brother John was known for his ability to play basketball, sing and play the piano. Not to mention quite the ladies man. So hence his nickname Superman. Heres to you John. Rest in peace. My work here is done.
- Restoration History; Here is the result of a somewhat spooky find. The truck you see on this page came from California to Minnesota in 1987-1988. My late brother John bought the truck. The truck was used on his paving crew and used as a commercial plow truck in the winter. The truck was Rock solid and had a dealer installed Winch & AC. John had the truck repainted and restored the truck in a bout 1990 to it's EXACT factory specifications. I mean down to the NOS GM Glove box, interior stickers, and exterior emblems. Painstaking attention was given to every detail and no expense was spared. The truck was stolen in 1991, recovered and sold to an individual out of state in 1992. Best I knew the truck was gone to cheese head land forever. My brother passed away in the fall of 1998. On September 23rd, 2003 I was feeling a little down and missing my brother. I found the VIN in some of my brother's old stuff. Thinking that the truck was most likely in Wisconsin and unable for me to trace, I was able to track the truck back to MN registered to and individual about an hour south of where my brother and I grew up and I still live. I called the gentleman on the phone and he said he still had the truck. Oddly enough he said it happens to be stored here in my home town. Evidently he was traveling through town and the brakes on the truck went out in the fall of 1998 so he stored it here until he could figure out how to get it home. I immediately went up town to look for the truck and this is what I found at a local mini-storage. I stated he had just won the lottery because I would pay ANY price to get the truck back. He treated me more than right and I was abloe to buy the truck for $1,800.00 The funny thing is that when I dropped the frame off at the sand blaster during the restoration I remembered that it was in this truck that I used to snow plow the driveway of the guy's dad that owns the sand blasting shop... It was kind of creepy but at the same time reminded me of the deep heritage this truck has. I remember it like it was yesterday and it was when I was 16 yrs old, now 39 and holding. I recall a snow storm in 1990. I was in college at the time and would come home on the weekends to plow snow if needed for my brother. One weekend I came home with a newly pierced lightening bolt ear ring in my ear. Now this did not sit well with John. He sent me out to hook up the plow in the dark during a snow storm. I was wearing a jacket with a wool turtleneck sweater. As I was laying on the ground in the snow and cold under the truck putting in the plow to frame pins in, my lightening bolt ear ring got caught on my nice warm wool turtle neck sweater and ripped my ear ring through the bottom of my ear. OUCH!!! blood everywhere and man that hurt like a SOB... His reaction was. "Hurry up and get the pins in, we have snow to plow." When my brother passed away I acquired all his shop and hand tools. I have built many cars with them since. Mostly Mopar just to spite him. lol.. Building this truck with the tools my brother and I used to pass to and throw at each other since I was 6 yrs old added a special touch to the truck.

1969 R/T Charger Y4 Gold Poly
This is real R/T. AC, console auto w 6 way seat, numbers Matching 440. Updated 08/01/2011- Paint work complete, assembly has started. Sept 10, 2011, drove car to first car show. Misc put-to-gether left, add the Black R/T Stripe, restore dash cluster etc. They are never ever done it seems. Front disc conversion, Sandblasted and painted, including underside. See resto pics in image gallery. Note how this Y4 Gold Poly paint changes color from inside to outside.
Back in the day this Charger was mated to an Elcamino down in the Southwestern United States. Since the car was a numbers matching 440 and at least the engine bay was unmolested, all AC components present etc, I decided to undertake returning this car to as original as I could. I had a good donor car with a top and trunk area. The car was put back together with a seam right along the top of the quarter body line. The restored car still had solid lower quarters. Aftermarket trunk floor and tail light panel was installed. I found a race car builder in my area who was a retired bodyman who had collision books from Chrysler which had the exact body measurements. The car was built on his race car jig and returned to the exact factory measurements. When complete the doors and windows all shut and closed perfectly.

1968 Dodge Charger R/T
Found in a field with little or no interior and no drive train. Restored by Jake. 440,. Auto. Sold
Jake's General Lee
Jake’s General Lee
Here is the story of my General. The car the started it all. This was my first car when I was 16 yrs old, I bought it for $300 out of a field. It was brown with Green indoor/outdoor fake grass patio carpeting and full of bondo. ( The car was originally triple green from the factory). After I had owned it for three months and stuck a ton of cash into it I sold it. ( Funny how history repeats itself) Then 12 yrs later I tracked it down through 4 different owners in a 5 hour period ( all in one day.) By the end of the day the car was home with me again. There were still receipts in the glove box from the auto parts store where I bought parts for it as a kid. When you talk about heritage this car has it for me. Everyone that is doing work on it I have known for a long time. For example, The engine was professionally built by a good friend of my family, I remember going to his shop as a kid and watching he and my brother fix up cars and build race engines etc. The guy who did the body work was my Tee-Ball coach. The guy who re-upholstered my seats, I used to work for and have know for about 15 yrs.
This car was built to never be sold. It was also built to be driven and I have driven it HARD. This car is tough and very strong. It just wants to run wild. This is no trailer queen. I let kids and very hot chics sit on the door with their feet on the seat to have their picture taken. When all polished up it shines like a Georgia sunrise. I have done exhibitions at local dirt tracks, pavement circle tracks and countless parades and promotions. There is nothing like 6000 people standing on their seats screaming their heads off when the General takes the field sliding sideways, smokin' the tires and tormenting the local cops who purposefully chase you hoping you run. It is a blast to drive.
383 and 727 Trans rebuilt. 3:55 Posi. Electronic Ignition with Holley 650 Carb. New distributor, radiator, and high output alternator to compensate for sound system's electrical draw. Most mechanical parts have been rebuilt or replaced. Disc Brake Booster and Master Cylinder. Font Supsension recieved new bushing Kit including new sway bar. Tires and wheels are 15". Car has Dual Exhaust with Glass Pacs. Car has the TV show sound, loud and mean!. Dual Rad Fans for extra cooling for parades etc. All after market Gauges to monitor Heat, Oil Pressure and Voltage. New Fuel lines, Gas tank, sending unit. Dixie Horn. Dash gauge cluster was professional restored and calibrated.
Sound System: All I pretty much did here was write out a huge check to have a Thumpin sound system put in. It is Super loud and my teeth vibrate when I play Motley Crue- Wild Side. There are speakers under the Dash in the rear dash pannel and huge subs and an amp in the trunk. ITs a Pioneer with remote CD player.

Vinyl top appears to be stained under back window, may be able to be bleached.
Non numbers matching '71 Motor, date correct for the car.
motor is 70 cast with a 71 VIN with 71 Heads. 1G103125
