It’s amazing how slick and smooth these modified muscle cars we build look when they are completed, but what about the painstaking effort that goes into building them? To remind folks of the massive amount of work that goes into crafting a heavily modified and deeply detailed muscle car, we have brought you “Muscle Car Garage.” MCC is a new section in Muscle Car Power Magazine that allows our readers a sneak peek at what is being created in garages and shops across the country.
For our initial project highlight we chose Bob Brandt’s 1970 Dodge Challenger which is being built by Hill’s Hot Rods with interior styling by JD Glassworks. The car started as a running, mild custom that was a looker, and owner Bob Brandt decided he wanted a car that would knock people’s socks off. Check out the build specs box for all the details on this high-caliber project and stay tuned for future installments of “Muscle Car Garage”.
