Back in 2000 when I had just a hulk of a beaten B-body and the motor sat in our living room, I really had doubts if this Mopar was gonna get finished. And if you think I was doubting the completion, you should have seen my wife with a motor sitting in our living room!

I have been thru just about every nut and bolt on this car. It's been a real ton of work, but has paid off in the long run. The motor is all hard core business, but when ya mash the gas it becomes pure pleasure.

As you can see, I'm one for bold colors. I have had a purple Roadrunner, a orange Charger, I have a yellow Super Bee -- and now this awesome peach/salmon Satellite. Not only do I want you hearing me come down the road, but seeing me as well.

I think I have earned graduation rights from the Works in Progress section to the B-body Gallery?

What a great Web site, with great people. Anybody reading this page that needs help on their Satellite, e-mail me and I'll help in a heartbeat. Thanks to all and hope you enjoy my fruits of labor.

p.s. The car did not beat me this time around, I beat it!
