Bill Worley
Bill has devoted many years to small-block Six Pack performance. Currently, he works at a Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep dealership and still loves building up performance for the '60s and '70s Mopars. His AAR was purchased from the original owner in 1996 after it was stored for 20 years in a local barn. Many people had asked to buy the 'Cuda, but Bill got the call since the owner knew of Bill's beautiful Challenger T/A. The numbers-matching motor and transmission were put aside for a more powerful 372 small-block combo. The AAR is occasionally driven instead of his T/A (slap stick auto) just to bang gears with that pistol grip.
