This car was my second project after the General Lee. Inspired by one of the fist laser disk movies I had even seen back in the '80, was the Blues Brothers movie. It took several years to find this old Dodge, but finally found it in Longmont in 2008. After taking off the Getto hub-cabs, and rattle canning over what was a fairly nice yellow factory paint job the Bluesmobile came to life. In 2009, while waiting in line to have Dan Aykroyd autograph the car at a local liquor store promotion, I was introduced to a couple of people wearing Ghostbuster suits who told me that I need to contact this guy named Kevin and that he’s been looking all over for this car. I became a CMC member a short time later. This car has been to numerous events including the Denver Comic Con, The Denver County fair, Redrocks (where they played the Bluesbrothers movie) and a Blues Brothers tribute Concert in Longmont.
