After searching for 5 years, Mark found an ad on HotRodHotline.com for a car located in Nixa, Missouri. Mark made arrangements to go see the car and decided it was the one for him. He had it transported to California and began making modifications. Since the car was built in 1996, there are many things that Mark is upgrading in order to modernize and change the car's look into resto-rod style. Mark plans on keeping the car forever and hope it will continue to be as reliable as it has been to this point
