The Oregon


First Project: 1968 Chrysler 300


About the


A group of passionate gearheads' love for cars pushing the envelope on hopes to one day open a community garage. But first Redmond, Oregon Web Designer Dan Mooney and the crew have to build cars in their normal garages and tap into some local professionals to help him and finish these projects. 

Mooney is the youngest and least experienced but has a passion for cars and the goal to do them right. 
The long term goal is to one day open up a taproom & restaurant/garage with multiple garage spaces.

Mooney and crew learn a lot along the way and build up their passion and their already sharp skills. Showing everybody that passion translates to knowledge. 
The crew needs to find and restore a vehicle before the big show. And they have the first one, a 1968 Chrysler 300, picked up for $1000 bucks.

First Project

The first project is a 1968 Chrysler 300. The guy was asking $7,995 but we talked him down a bit. It is an automatic with a 440 big block. We plan on making this a Sunday cruiser. Lowered with black steel wheels, black bumpers, and a slick flat paint job. The plan is to sell it and start a new project. 

The Build

The first step was getting her running. Check. Then was to pull all the emblems and stripping off. Check. Then pull the bumpers and get them over to Commerical Powder Coating. Then we dressed up the engine and got it looking back to stock. Next will be welding on the bumpers, body and then paint. We plan on putting a 2 inch lowering kit or we might end up bagging it. 


Second Project

We are still looking for our second project car.
