In January 2008 new life was breathing through the project. "We had decided the time had finally come to complete our teenage project," he says. This time, they wouldn't stop until the car was finished and on the road. They cracked open the barn doors and revisited the cobweb-covered B-Body. It was loaded onto a trailer and taken to a local restoration shop where it was stripped down, put on a rotisserie, painted, and the engine was rebuilt. By November, the car was ready to be shipped to Lars' new home in Nashville. Over the next 18 months he put in over 500 hours of spare time to complete the restoration with the help of several members of the Music City Mopar Club. It was finally completed and ready to roll 23 years after he began the project with his brother.
"It was done just in time for the 2010 Mopar Nationals," he says. "My friend Mike Wilkins convinced me to bring the car to the event and boy am I glad we did." Lars' blistering yellow paint could be seen from any part of the show field which drew a great deal of attention. He took first place in the 1970-and-up B-Body category. Lars' GTX is a perfect example of Canadians' love for the hobby and we're sure he'll enjoy it even more now that it doesn't have to be tucked away every winter.
