Friend and Horsepower for an Hour listener, Steve Covell, shared his very cool 1973 Dodge Charger. This was a garage find wrecked vehicle, stored for several years by the original owner heading for the salvage yard.

This is one of the finest restorations we’ve seen and it comes as no surprise to us that the car is a perennial winner at many events.
