The business of fixing up our cars is one we all take seriously, but the truth comes out in the details. We see a lot of great-looking machines at shows, but unless the owner pro-actively pursues a concours-exact award, little things can detract from them. In many cases, it's something that was not so much neglected as overlooked, items the owner never focused on.

Mike Paremsky's '69 Charger R/T was his first such Mopar project. A body man by trade, it's often Mike's business to assess what's needed to perfect a car he's rebuilding for a customer. As result, he focused on a lot of little things that helped make his own machine, the car we have come to know as the Paddock Charger, stand out from the crowd.

In the following group of photographs, we will see some of the details that Mike applied to the Charger. Some of these will be applicable to the stock/restoration crowd, some will be applicable to the street-driver crowd, but all of them add up to a single total of automotive exactitude.
