Dan and Kelly's '69 Super Bee, Valley City, OH.
My wife and I purchased this beauty a year ago from Lewisville TX. It has always been my dream to have a 69 Super Bee. It has a 383 Hemi Magnum, Scat Pack, Ram charger with a complete rotisserie restoration. All numbers match. It was featured on Fast N Loud for the Dodge 100th Anniversary commercial but Gas Monkey garage did not play any part of restoration. Our favorite cruise in spots are Samosky’s Pizzaria in Valley City, Bakers Square Parma Heights, and Laurel Square in Brunswick.

Buddy's '63 VW Bug
This is a 1963 VW Bug. It has been lowered with an air ride suspension, LA Products adjustable front beam and 2.5" dropped spindles. Riding on Dayton "100 true spoke" rims. All handles, locks, wipers & sprayers were removed. The rails were modified and all seams ,fenders, custom head lights & taillights have been molded in for that ultimate smooth & shaved look. The suicide doors were done by Ron Shaffer. The all chrome engine was modified by Jim's Custom VW to handle the added horsepower of an NOS nitrous oxide system & turbocharger.
Mike's '79 GMC C15 Stepside
This project started simple, just fix it up here and there and have some fun with it. That soon changed, next thing you know it was down to the bare frame and while it is this far I might as well do this, do that and project took a 180 real quick. 6 years later I finally got it on the road! This was the first time I went this far with anything so there was a lot to learn along the way. I did all the work myself except for the 700R4 and the 4:10 posi I had installed in the factory 12 bolt rear housing. The 350 is now a 383 stroker with a mild cam. The color is House of Kolor Sunset Pearl that I shot in my small 2 car garage. I am looking forward to next summer to it it out to some local shows. It was a project I enjoyed very much.
Gary's '67 GTX
This is a fully documented numbers matching California Black Plate '67 GTX I just picked up out of Windsor Canada. The car was authenticated by Richard Kras. My favorite cruises are Brunswick, Bakers Square. Grace Church, Quaker Steak & Lube Sheffield
Al & Barb' '65 Pontiac
This is our '65 Pontiac Catalina 2+2! It is originally from Wickliffe, Ohio. The car was in less than great shape and underwent a frame off, four year plus restoration. Once finished the cars made the cover of the April 2003 High Performance Pontiac Magazine, and over the years their garage shelves were filled with trophy's won by both.
The car sports the original dark blue bucket seat interior with console & floor shift. A few coats of Blue Charcoal base coat, clear coat were applied over flawless bodywork. The bright work was re-chromed, the stainless was buffed and renewed 2+2 emblems were applied. The classic exterior was finished with 8 lug wheels. A recent addition are the G-70 14 redline, bias ply, Coker tires.
