They picked a '67 - '70 Dodge Charger (yay!) as an example of an American car they wish was still made, but the best they could do for a photo was a Plymouth Roadrunner???? "...not quite a Charger, b

I would say that the car (or at least, the front bumper) spent some time at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. The car could have been owned by either a member of the U.S. Army or possibly by a civilian who wo

If you're only doing a temporary repair, the gauge of the metal doesn't matter and you can use anything that is convenient. Your approach is reasonable, but you might find it easier (but messier) to

Thank you for spreading that word, Mark. It is indeed important that cars that no longer exist be documented. Too many of them have disappeared without a trace already because no one bothered to keep

Most of the severe rusting that we find on unrestored cars occurred when they were just everyday vehicles and not pampered classics. Once repaired, it's very unlikely that the car is ever going to s
