Patterns start to emerge and you can learn a lot. Need help decoding your Mopar? Send us an e-mail

Rocket Restorations

I dropped by Rocket Restorations in Olympia, Washington yesterday to say hi to my buddy Tom and look around his shop a bit. It was my first visit and I was not disappointed–he had some very cool stuff. Like an A12 Road Runner that was just about done (I would kill for this car). A beautiful freshly painted silver ’69 Charger. A Challenger SE in the middle of a somewhat challenging vinyl top install. A cool Dart GTS. A ’67 Satellite getting a fuel injection setup. A ’62 Dodge convertible that had received a ton of metal work. A few freshly rebuilt motors on stands. Tons and tons of parts. Oh, and his old Barracuda LeMons race car. These guys do great work, so if you are in the area and need help with your Mopar, give ’em a call. (Be sure to like their Facebook page, too.) See the rest of the pics after the jump!
