Tony D 1979 Dodge Aspen 4dr Sedan

I shook hands with Goldberg

Although my 79 Aspen sedan is an original low miles (21,000) car, it rarely gets attention at car shows or cruise-ins except from elderly widows who come up to tell me that their late husbands had one just like it. It never won any trophies or prizes except when there was a Top 25 and only 19 cars showed up. Undeterred by the lack of recognition, I took it to the Chrysler Classic event at National Trail Raceway a few years ago and it won an award. Former wrestler and current Mopar aficionado Goldberg handed me my plaque. Later that day I had the opportunity to make a run on the dragstrip and it took me only 20 seconds to go the 1/4 mile with some folks in the stands yelling "Go Granny Go"!
