    Decade of Thunder

    "Decade of Thunder" in the Director's Words

    "Decade of Thunder represents so much of what appeals to me about the America I grew up in. Power. Technology. Competition. Speed. Personality. Adventure. 'No Limits'. 'No Fear'. Expressive NOT Introspective. The Beach Boys and Jan & Dean sang about these cars."
    They all fit the magic 1963 - 1973 window, have 400+ cubic inches, are more or less 'Original' and are All American.

    Bob Murguia & his '68 Hemi Roadrunner

    Hemi Details

    Bob Murguia is an American Marine Patriot who served with distinction in Viet Nam. After his training, Bob went on to become a Marine Machine Gunner and shipped off to Nam. During his tour there he was wounded on more than one occasion but did not leave the field during battle.
    After leaving The Corps, Bob spent some time getting to know America again. When it was time to enter the work force Bob became a lawman serving in various jurisdictions including the Wichita Police Force.
    If you ask 10 guys for the first thought that comes into their mind when you say "Muscle Car", probably 6 of them will say "Hemi". Bob's Hemi is a "driver". He takes it out on occasions and always drives it to the car shows he attends.

    Guy Lamoreaux - '70 Corvette 454


    Guy Lamoreaux describes himself as an American who has not found anything in the European Automobile Inventory that can beat the American Muscle Car. He has a career in the Aerospace Industry. Except for the tires, which he exchanged for larger radials to improve handling and stopping, he keeps his 454 stock and original.
    During the car wars of The Decade of Thunder, cubic inches generally equalled power output. At the top of the power hierarchy is the LS 454. The sound of one starting up and pulling away is a thing of great beauty.

    Rick Plush and his 1970 Chevelle SS-454


    With his 1970 Chevelle SS 454, Rick has found his Dream Car. When you hear his story you will really appreciate the care and desire he has put into this machine. There are few Muscle Cars that have been restored to Original Condition to the extent of this beauty.

    You really need to see this spotless engine compartment. Matching numbers... original filters... Way better than when it came off the dealer's floor.

    Butch Dysart & his '67 Impala SS 427


    A Body and Fender Man by trade, Butch Dysart put all the art and craft he has learned from decades in the business into this immaculate Impala. Butch has coined a phrase "Super Original" to describe his restoration technique. He brings cars back to the way they "should" have been in the first place with as perfect "fit & finish" as you can get.
    The 427 Impala was sold in the day as a family car that you could take to the drags.
