It doesn’t say much, but it’s still a There is no way that the owner will ever be able to fix up all of his more than 100 cars. But maybe the rarer and more expensive ones will get the attention they deserve pretty soon. This brings me to the HEMI-powered Mopars that are parked here and hoping for a second chance. cool plan. Two 1970 HEMI “Cudas,” one of which is sadly just a carcass, and at least three powerful 426-powered Road Runners are also part of the collection.

The rarest HEMI of the group is the first one to appear on camera. Since it’s a 1968 Dodge Coronet HEMI Convertible, I’m also referring to a Mopar that is virtually unattainable.

How many were constructed, do you know? just nine! And as a result, it is more rare than the million-dollar classic, extremely pricey 1970 Plymouth ‘Cuda HEMI Convertible.
