I've spent most of my life in and around this wonderful industry and I am flattered to be a part of this great new era of this car. I hope the Mopar community takes a moment this weekend to express their appreciation for quality American cars from bygone eras.
Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) July 9, 2009
Kicking off a weekend of celebration of everything Chrysler and Mopar, hundreds of industry insiders will join Project Six Pack creator Ted Struse and part three of the three-man Struse, Smith, Welsh trio Terry Welsh, other original members of the Project Six Pack team and Carlisle Senior Manager Lance Miller to unveil Best of Show Automotive's freshly restored "Project Six Pack," on Thursday, July 9th at 8:00PM at Carlisle Expo Center in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.
"This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have three of the individuals instrumental in the creation and success of Project Six Pack in one room, and is a tangible tribute to the unwavering passion, hard work and commitment of Mopar enthusiasts," said Best of Show Automotive President Joe Carroll. "Our goal is to be the driving force in the resurrection, promotion and appreciation of Chrysler Corporation's products. Too often we lose sight of how great the American automobile industry is, was and can be again, and we are thrilled to stake our claim on that greatness."
Aimed at celebrating the 40th anniversary of the 1969 A12 package 440 Six Pack cars, Best of Show Automotive engaged Ted Struse (Project Six Pack's original and only owner) in 2008 to assist in the meticulous restoration of the record-setting and industry-making Project Six Pack to the high point of its racing career.
"Over the course of my life, I have been honored to be the father of Project Six Pack and to have an opportunity to leave my mark on Mopar racers and the racing industry overall," said Ted Struse. "I've spent most of my life in and around this wonderful industry and I am flattered to be a part of this great new era of this car. I hope the Mopar community takes a moment this weekend to express their appreciation for quality American cars from bygone eras."
Project Six Pack and the car that started it all, the 1969 ½ Plymouth Road Runner A12 #1, will be on display all weekend at the Best of Show Automotive exhibit in the A12 Reunion located in building Y at the Carlisle Fairgrounds. This exciting exhibit will provide in-depth insight into the restoration process of both cars and will lead guests through their long and storied histories.
