This well known beast started its racing life as a 1969 Plymouth Road Runner and was re-built by Marv who attended the “Cavalcade of Stars” in 1970. During the years this American muscle was transformed into a Time Machine II, Trail Blazer and so on, until its current owner restored it and brought back to the “LA Challenger” shape.
