During A/FX eliminations, J.D. was stopped in the final by Bill Campbell diving the team’s older ’64 Hemi Dodge. These folks from Prescott, AZ, are in attendance at many southland events. This includes the Muscle Cars at the Strip in Las Vegas and the March Meet at Bakersfield, CA.

And to mix things up a little is Tucson’s Brian Ashworth at the wheel of the ‘Twilight Zone’ Fuel Altered. Check it out -- the body is a Fiat replica, while the Nitro burning motor is based on the 426 Hemi. Can’t get more MOPAR than this!

During the previous two years at the NHRA Nostalgia Race held at Wild Horse Pass Raceway Park near Phoenix, a ’46 Plymouth Coupe, with attractive ‘flames’, was prominent in the huge Hot Rod class.

And at a Benson, AZ, car show, we found a special ’66 Dodge Polara Convertible which was restored by Mike Mitchell. The beautiful car has had only three owners since first being sold by a dealer, Hartwig Motors, Inc. in Iowa City, Iowa. Now here it is, a resident of Sierra Vista, AZ, with near perfect pearl interior upholstery.
