When everything was completed, the car was returned to Wayne's garage where he thrashed for weeks to put everything back together. He finished it in September 2009, almost three years to the day he started in September 2006. He took it to his first local show that month and won best Mopar. The attention was enough to bring him back for more and he went on to take second place at Monster Mopars in both 2009 and 2010. This year, he plans to take the car to the NATS to see how he does.
Wayne can take pride in knowing that he took everything apart in this car and now presents it in a package that rivals any car out on the show field. "There's not a single item on this car that I haven't touched, replaced, or restored." His winning record is indicative of this, too. So sometimes it can pay off to talk with strangers as it led Wayne to four terrific Mopars, his favorite being this '71 Road Runner.
