30 years later, Kim was working in Cedar Rapids and a co-worker told him about Eddie’s Rod & Custom. Arrangements were made for Eddie to inspect the car, and in April of 2013 The Challenger was transported to Eddie’s Rod and Custom. The next two years were full of hard decisions for Kim, along with quite a few parts bills. The challenger needed plenty of body work including a full sandblasting, a patchwork of rust repair to the quarters and fenders, new floorpans, a new trunk floor, and fresh sheet metal around the rear window. Mechanically, it received a new Tremec 5-speed transmission, pistol grip shifter, rebuilt engine, fresh engine accessories, new headers and exhaust system, brand new brakes just to name a few. The car was finished off with a refreshed interior, a flawless coat of original 1970 Dodge burnt orange, and the signature R/T stripes.

Kim's Challenger was delivered in Spring of 2014, just in time to take it out for some cruising. Do us a favor and take it easy on the engine this time, Kim.
