It started with three brothers: Andy, Mark, and Ron Bujtas. All three brothers were Mopar fans after Andy and their father visited a Plymouth dealer to buy a daily driver. Dad saw the 1971 GTX and convinced Andy to buy it. The seed was planted.
But Andy was a submariner with the US Navy, and when his ship slipped beneath the ocean waves to carry out its patrols, he’d entrust the keys to his GTX to his younger brother Mark. During the long voyages, Mark cared for his older brother’s car like it was his own. Maintenance, repairs, Mark did it all, to the point that, as he says, he knew the car inside and out. Despite the care and attention Mark lavished on the car, when Andy decided to sell it in 1991, he turned to youngest brother Ron, who had plans to restore the car to its one-time glory.
