The restoration was performed in the mid-west, Sikeston, Missouri which lies approximately 146 miles south of St. Louis on I-55, then 5 miles west on State Highway 62. The individual that performed the restoration is named, Daniel (D.J.; Dan) Strebler who resides in the town of Sikeston.  Commissioned by a former owner, this process took approximate 1.5 years, beginning in July 1990 and completing in September 1991.  The pictures above were received from Dan.

AAR `Cuda Burnout by Freddy

Prior to purchasing this AAR `Cuda, I asked my son-in-law's brother, Freddy, who happened to live near Mesa, Arizona, to stop by Desert AutoSport and take the car for a test drive.  After this experince, his comments were hell yes, buy this car!


Now, Freddy enjoys having fun, burning up the tires of the AAR `Cuda!
