Start: $400 - Finish: Mean Green MOPAR: Violent Valiant - /BIG MUSCLE
The Plymouth Valiant was never meant to be a muscle car. It was never meant
to be fast, overly attractive or go around corners. Loved by grandparents
and college professors alike, the Valiant was the go-to car for those who
wanted smooth reliable transport. Owner Shannon Hudson bought this Valiant
for $400.00 and after 20 years of ownership and a few different versions,
built it into one of the coolest MOPAR A Bodies we've ever seen.

Saved from the Scrap Yard! Challengers, Chargers, RT's, Hemis even Winged Mopars!
Captain Right-time-right-place, strikes again! I was just out riding my
bike when I saw this black Challenger on the back of a flat-bed truck. The
owner was closing the gate and just about to set off when I leaped off my
bike & pulled my camera out.
It turns out he didn't just have one sweet Mopar (which happened to have a
426 Hemi) he had A GARAGE FULL OF THEM. It was all a bit of a blur and I
was still puffing from having been riding, and then being gob-smacked, and
then non-stop asking questions.
I wasn't able to catch the whole story but it seems the Brisbane City
(Australia) government had Assumed (confiscated/commandeered) his land and
had to remove all of his possessions with in 30 days or lose it. Had he not
done so, all would have been scrapped. If that had happened his only course
of action would've been to sue the government to reclaim damages.
That would really have sucked because the cash wouldn't have brought them

THE JEGS LEGACY OF RACING SUCCESS BEGINS
As JEGS Mail Order celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2010, it's important
to note that founder Jeg Coughlin Sr. was once a drag racing demon, racing
and winning in a variety of hot rods in the freewheeling early days of NHRA
At a time when a national circuit didn't exist, Coughlin raced to 30
divisional championships, challenging for titles in Top Fuel, Pro Stock,
Top Alcohol Dragster, Top Alcohol Funny Car, A-Gas Supercharged, D-Gas
Supercharged, C-Gas, C-Stock, Modified Eliminator, Pro Comp, and Super
At one point Coughlin won a record 11 races in a row in his JEGS-branded
Top Alcohol Dragster. He also won a national-level race in his D-Gas
Supercharged hot rod. Not many drivers have won as many rounds as Coughlin,
especially with the wins spread out over so many different eliminators.
The racing community has certainly taken notice. Coughlin is a member of
three different Halls of Fame and was honored with the prestigious Car
Craft Magazine "Ollie" Award for Lifetime Achievement.
