This Hot Rod Commands Attention

Mike Krauchick has an eye for spotting a diamond in the rough. It takes a certain person to see a run-down old car that most people would sell for scrap and envision a new project car worth putting the time and, more importantly, the money into. In 1971, while driving in his hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania, Mike spotted a ’62 Dodge Polara sitting on blocks and in pretty rough shape. After inquiring about the car, the owner threw out a price of $75 and Mike jumped at the opportunity to make this project his new drag car. This 60-year-old car looks anything but old and, quite frankly, has us drooling!



Looks like ford carbon copy this model to create the mustang


Wow what a great find, only if we all could be so lucky


I’d become the ultimate humble stunner. I wish to be as lucky as this car is in every way. Nice ride man. Love the transformation. I wonder what the car had been through from the time it was built. Either way. It looks great bet it runs better and I’m happy for it.


he definitely did it to his dreams,lol
