My Story

The pumpkin started out life as a fleet vehicle in Detroit according to carfax, I can only imagine that it was a company car for a Dodge execuitive. Three owners later, the Gentleman who had sold it to me had been T-Boned, and did not have other than Liability Insurance. So he got a couple of estimates, and deducted the value of the repairs from the "Book Value" of the car. Since the engine was in great shape and all the damage was cosmetic, I figured I could buy it, and using my own skills as well as a few contacts, I could get her back on the road for far less than book.

I bought a black door, blue fender, and green mirror from Kevin Williams at www.stealth3000gtparts.com, I picked up a red side skirt on Ebay, and I bought a new A-piller from Libertyville Mitsubishi. When it was done with the major body work, the car was red, black, blue and green, the Chicago crew took to affectionately calling her "the crayonbox".

Jump forward one paint job, two engine rebuilds, and three years, and what you see is the end result, if you are so inclined, I have the whole "saga" spelled out in 5 pages of rantings and lamentations for the past year or so. As you can see from the pics, I am not big into bling, and I am a firm believer that "Chrome don't get you home" so i opted for the whole crinkle black and brushed aluminum motif under the hood. The pumpkin was never meant to be a trailer queen show car, but in my humble opinion, she turned out looking pretty OK

I have to give the following shout-outs to people who helped to get the pumpkin into the state she is in today:

  • Von Morgan of Morgan's Motorsports - 'nough said
  • Ron Cook - Libertyville Mitsubishi
  • Grayson Lough and Mark Gunter for being there
  • Tony Clark - Advanced Auto Body
  • Chris "Existenz" - for taking OUTSTANDING photos!

Thank you to all of them for all of the help through the years, and thank you for taking the time to read this much shortened version of the pumpkin's story.
