Andrew Graham lives in Barrie, Ontario, Canada and owns this cool 1968 Charger. Andrew while growing up has always been a huge Dukes of Hazard fan and wanted a hemi orange Dodge Charger like the General Lee. When he was 19 he saved up enough money to start looking for a car to restore. Andrew noticed the manager at the store he worked at had a 1970 model that was hemi orange. He then pursued to see if that manager would sell his car and Andrew was told “you will be 90 before you have enough saved up to buy my car”. The adventure how Andrew found his dream Mopar now begins.
Andrew after being denied a chance to get the 1970 Charger from his co-worker was now extremely motivated. To his surprise after looking for a 1968-1970 Charger for only three weeks he found one. The car he found was in the classified ads located 30 minutes from his house. Andrew then called the owner and was told it looked like the Dukes of Hazard car. What really sweetened the deal the car was from Alabama and still had Alabama tags.
In 1995 Andrew purchased the car. After he and his father got the car home it was overall in good shape. After working on it for a while he then had it ready for the road in1997. And of course the hemi orange was applied in 1999. As of today this 1968 Charger only has 82,000 original miles. This car since Andrew has fixed her up has won 25 car show trophies. Andrew enjoys his car and cruises it on the streets. Andrew told us “generally speaking sometimes dreams come true”.
