When you've proven yourself, it can sometimes be difficult to set new goals. Take John Balow, the owner of Muscle Car Restorations of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. In 1988, John took his '63 Max Wedge Plymouth Sport Fury to the Mopar Nationals and won first place in class. Armed with the success of that moment and an interested buyer, John sold the car and ventured out on his own, using the proceeds of the sale to establish his restoration business that has been chronicled in countless magazine articles and awards.
Have you ever wished you had all the information that went into building a stellar street Mopar, but never had the opportunity to ask? We have. As a result, every month we will query the owner/restorer/builder of our cover car as to the specifics that went into the car's building.
This month, John Balow was more than willing to share the spotlight with the following vendors, suppliers and sources that assisted in building his Belvedere. John notes, "Who does the professional choose to build an award winning show car? He cannot do it all himself. That is why I choose certain people to do business with-people who never let me down." As a professional shop, John's customers rely on him to come through. Equally, he relies on the following companies to come through for him.
