I'm new here but if you saw the Yankee Show Post, you already have seen me! That's me in my 67 Dodge Coronet! I'm an Aussie, but I've lived here in Finland since 2000. My wife is Finnish and we are both entrepreneurs.
I have had many Mopars over the years, my latest one is a 1957 Plymouth Savoy 2 door hardtop. It is going to be a showcar/drag car. And it is already non traditonal. I also currently have my '67 Coronet 500 as I said above. I have my own company, Kokonut Kustoms and Kokonut Klassiks. 2 sides to my business one for custom cars and the other muscle and classic cars. We buy, sell, build etc.
I am friends with Richard Rawlings, my wife and I know him and his wife Sue pretty well. And I just got back from SEMA a few weeks back, where Richard and I met up again and talked about our future plans together. So stay tuned for that!
I take a LOT of photos at events all around Finland and abroad. Check my Yankee Show photos HERE

Yeah it needs work, but the price was right. And the panel work was done right. It is very straight for a 50's car with panels this big.
4 link rear, Ford 9 inch..But I am changing the air system to a ride-tech.
Custom interior is going to be put in, most likely a 2+2 setup. With front and rear consoles. Rear one having a bar or something like that. This car will be a promo vehicle for my company and my mechanics place as I said, so it has to be a show car that breaks the rules a bit.
Cut and I bleed Mopar so I had to think long and hard about buying this car, knowing it was such a departure from what a 57 Savoy should be.
