Everything came together just in time for the MATS show in Vegas, where Jason, Todd, and the crew at Big Hemi Customs made their debut as a vendor for the event. "We really wanted people to know that we could build a car like this for them," says Jason. "The amount of positive feedback that the car generated was overwhelming." The MATS solicited their company in a positive light and had several leads for future business while they took home best-in-show B-Body modified, and were even featured on the television show Chop, Cut, Rebuild.
"My Uncle Bob got to see the car recently and everything came full circle." Says Jason. "I told him it was because of him that I loved the '69 Road Runner, and I thanked him for taking me under his wing when I was young and teaching me about working on cars. He smiled and nodded. After looking over the car and catching up with me, he said 'The entire car is unbelievable, but the big rims have to go.' I laughed and thought, even my Uncle doesn't get the Pro Touring thing." Pro Touring may not be for everyone, but if it's something you enjoy, this '69 BigHemi Runner certainly is a delight!
