The Orr family is car crazy, and that has comfortably reflected onto their children. Their common interest keeps them together. It has spawned multiple family project cars where everyone is ready to lend a hand to help a family member build their deadly weapon. Each of them has their next projects underway and we're sure to see them back in force each year at the NATS.

But Wait, There's More
There is, however, one more Orr family member ready for his time in the limelight. As the owner of a '68 Charger, younger brother Jimmie looks forward to completing it and competing in the Young Guns class. We're certain that if it's anything like his older sister's and brother's rides, it will impress everyone at the show. We asked Jimmie to tell us more about his '68 Charger.
Gayle spotted the car about 15 miles from their house, but it wasn't for sale. She tried to buy it several times herself, but there was no budging the owner. About a year later, a family friend gave them a good tip that the car was coming up for sale because his boss was the man's neighbor and saw the Charger was moved out in the front yard for a fast sell.
The Orr parents promptly headed over and bought the car. During this time, Jimmie was working on his own project, a '73 'Cuda, and it was already painted. "I kept looking at the Charger and thinking that I really wanted it to be my project. I was willing to give up the 'Cuda to do so." He finally worked up the nerve to ask his father if they could work something out where they could trade cars, and dad agreed.
