Restored Memories

              Here at RM we love to bring back lost projects and giving them a whole new life.  These two here are no exception.  Just a little bit of hard work, paint and go fast parts help make these engine bays look better than new.  If its up to us the muscle car will never die.   

Work In Progress

   Most of the designs are set and the fabrication is in full swing.  With a team at each end of the car it truly is a representation of the best RM has to offer.  We are excited to see the end result. Airlift, Magnaflow and Barton have all stepped up and supplied parts to help makes this a show stopper.  Check back here for more updates and make sure your in Las Vegas @ Sema for the unveil.      

SEMA Design Project

We are excited to partner with Pafaff Designs in creation of the Rapture Challenger! This project will have many unique one-off design aspects that are sure to set the SEMA show on fire.  Keep checking in for more updates as the project moves forward.              

Monterey Motorsports Reunion

This year at Laguna Seca was another great success.  The weather, fans, atmosphere and the stiff competition was amazing.  We had two great classics on display under the RM Canopy.  Jim Bartel’s super fast Shadow DN4 and Jim Farley’s freshly restored Cobra 427.  After a good fight Craig Bennett driving the DN4 was able to come away with the win! Congratulations to everyone for their outstanding finishes all weekend long.  Can’t wait for next year’s Reunion so we can do it all over again.
