Had a good trip to Carlisle. Was looking for a bunch of parts for the restoration of my '69 340 fastback. Found a really nice set of exhaust manifolds to replace my rust pitted ones . Also found the correct 46 amp alternator that I left with Jim Ridge for restoration.
Came back to my car on Saturday afternoon and found I had received a “Celebrity Choice Award” from Herb McCandless Performance!!!
I tried to find a contact for Herb to thank him for the award. Could not find a contact. I then reached out to Mike, who is Herb's son, on Facebook to ask him to put me in touch with Herb..
A few days ago Herb phoned me!!! Said it was an absolutely gorgeous car and thought the whole restoration was first class which is quite the complement!! We had a long conversation about Mopars and he mentionned he was going to go to the Aero Warriors Talladega reunion at Tim Wellborn's Musclecar Museum in October. I said I was bringing my Superbird. He said "You mean you have a Superbird?" Said he wanted to meet me!! Gave me his cell phone so we can hook up when we get there!!!

He will likely be driving his 61 Chrysler 300G (5.7 Hemi powered)

Mike has put together museum of their cars etc.

Viewing a thread - Museum opened for the power tour, pictures

Made my day!!

The award stated: "This is a great built car from the ground up. A car to be proud of and I am very happy to choose it"
