Feldman, Jost
1973 Dodge Charger SE (Europe)



During 2008-2010 a couple of friends and I restored my Charger. Therefore the engine needed to be rebuilt. My decision went for a stroker kit by Hughes Engines. I wanted a street legal car with which I could travel a lot of miles during Mopar season here in Europe – hence keeping the 2.76 transmission. Dave very professionally advised me for the right parts in spring of 2008. For the upcoming season in 2010 my highlight will be the Mopar Euronats in Santa Pod, UK, on August, 1st 2010. We happily finished the restoration end of March 2010. And guess what: The car runs like hell….
 I have to thank Dave Hughes and his team very much.
 All the best,
