About “Dragula”

My wife and I bought this car April '08. This is the first picture I took after we pushed it off the trailer. We have gone through and completed all the work neccessay to get this old girl back on the road. She sat for about 6 years and fired up on the first try!!

Dragula is a work in progress.....but we are enjoying her every step of the way!

About “Charger”

When we got it it was a 42000 miles car. The previous owner had sanded off all the paint and then parked it outside for about 6 years. It was covered in rust. All work was done in our garage by my husband with the exception of spraying the paint on which was done by his brother-in-law. It is an original 318 automatic car, white with maroon interior. As you can see now it is Omaha orange with black interior. A/C has been added. It has a 440 - 4 speed. All the scoops and the wing were hand build by my husband and are made of sheet metal. All emblems have been removed and the rocker molding and the belt molding which ran the full length of the car has been removed. This is it's 4th summer and currently has about 34,000 miles on it since it was done. It has been featured in 4 magazines, Car Craft, Mopar Collector's Guide, Street Thunder and American Street Rodder along with the 2005 Car Craft Calendar. It is DRIVEN everywhere. Trailers are for boats!!!!
