1972 Challenger * Chris Varjan * Oradell, NJ
Chris Varjan and his father had been looking for the perfect Challenger since Chris was 13. They had gone on some road trips, and even flew out to see cars that turned out to only look good in the pictures. Finally, Chris's dad brought home his '72 Challenger, which Chris has had apart more times than he can remember in the seven years he has owned it. There was a lot of rust like many East Coast cars, so Chris pitched it all. He's having Max-G of Kutztown, Pennsylvania, do all the bodywork. He is still plumbing the intercooler for 14 pounds of boost pumped by a Procharger.

1964 Nova * Darin Brewster * Savannah, GA
When Darin was just a young boy, he would visit Gramma Vercie in the small town of Bedico, Louisiana. He remembers riding in her '64 Chevy II all around town. Even though Gramma lived off a dirt road, she always kept her car clean. She would have Darin pull it under the carport to wash it with her. When Gramma Vercie passed, Darin brought the car home, where it was safely stored until he could start the restoration at Killer Kustoms, of Cartersville, Georgia. This is where it got a complete street-machine rebuild. He's named the car "VerSSie" in memory of his Gramma.

1970 Mustang * Paul Lindstorm * Santa Cruz, CA
For all the guys who thought there should have been a Boss 427 Mustang in 1970, here's what it would have looked like. Paul Lindstrom bought this '70 Mustang as a birthday present for himself, after spotting it on eBay. It was owned by an older woman who picked it up off the lot brand new at Honolulu Ford. She didn't drive it much, racking up only 56,000 miles, but during disassembly, Paul saw this car had a hard life. There was a lot of rust, probably because of Hawaii and Santa Cruz's damp climate. Paul plans for all-new metal, Metallic Candyapple Red paint, and Boss stripes.
