  1. Wow, what an amazing video!!! I felt like I was right there with you guys the whole time, smelling the fumes from the Petro 94, and hearing all of the sounds that are there during the first start of the engine in the 500. Hearing the good vibrations from the open headers, man it just doesn't get any better than that. I had a smile on my face the during the entire video and a tear in my eyes as well. George you did an incredible job on this video, everything was spot on, the camera angles the sound, and I didn't even mind sitting on the tire machine, lol. You made me feel like I was part of the entire experience, and I thank you for that. Nick & Manny thank you so much for all of your hard work over the entire build. The 500 looks better than it ever has, and you have exceeded my expectations throughout the build. Another muscle car saved by Nick's Garage, The best little garage in Laval Quebec, with a giant reputation. The ending of the video was very special for me, and 100 Bikes For Kids, thank you so much.

  2. Great looking Dodge Charger. One curious thing though, the serial number begins with XX29 on both the Chrysler invoice to Creative Industries and on the bill of sale from Fowler Motors, but on the 1973 registration, and on the Certificate of Ownership from 1969, it begins with XS29 ?

  3. The SLP/Ed Hamburger connection took me back to the 80:s when I ordered a big chunk of parts for my 65 Dart 360 in Finland, the shipping documents were signed by Ed himself!

  4. What you. Think. About this mother flowers being it's mothers day 5-8-2022 Imagine what this car has missed out in life but the car comes to life on a Sunday lot of catching up.
