Jeff WestJeff was born with Mopar blood running through his veins. His father worked as a mechanic at a Mopar dealership from the early '60s into the '90s. A passion for Pentastar cars came early to Jeff, and he owned a few nice E-Bodies ('70 Challenger R/T, '71 'Cuda) before he was even of driving age. a year ago, a coworker told Jeff about a Challenger that was owned by a guy whose wife had put him into credit card debt, forcing a fast sale. A deal was made for only $9,700 for the Go Mango beauty. considering E-Body prices these days, we say, "what a deal!"
