Featured Member of the Week: garybrevig
This week’s featured member is Gary Brevig from Princeton Minnesota. Gary is a business owner, he owns a telecommunications company Dennison Technology Group Inc. His company installs and supports VOIP phone system call centers and multi-site applications for business. So how did Gary find out about Cool Rides? Through the wonderful world of social networks, Gary first heard about Cool Rides through Facebook. Gary owns this amazing 1969 Charger, but not only has that he also owned a 1969 Camaro as well as a 1971 Camaro. That is quite a trifecta.
Gary has been slowly working on the 1969 Charger for just over 10 years. In the process of those ten years Gary has completed three other cars, but as he mention the ’69 Charger is his baby. The Charger has had three different colors purchased for it none of which eventually made it onto the car. “I spent a lot of time looking at other cars and available parts and pieces that I could add to the car. Some of the add-ons that I felt would complement the car include: the boze intake rims with mopar etched center caps, Doug’s headers, flaming river steering column and auto meter mopar gauges. Complete QA1 front end including coil over conversion in the front, Paxton novi 1200 and custom interior”. Gary was careful with choosing the add-ons to make sure he did not stray away from keeping the originality of the vehicle “I did not go completely crazy, the car is original with some adds and can be converted back to stock”.
Gary is a father of four and he mentions that he needs one more car to be able to pass on, “maybe a cuda,roadrunner,gto”. Those are quite some sweet rides would look great added to the already amazing collection.
What was the most difficult modification you’ve completed on any of your Cool Rides?
Replacing the rear outer wheel wells and ¼ on the charger. Making it nice and not slapped together is a lot of work.
What’s your favorite memory involving your Cool Ride?
I purchased the car from a relative and had to re=assemble the car to drive it out of the back yard. Unfortunately I had to deal with a killer goose and a miniature horse that would get up on its hind legs and kick at me. Supposedly it was trying to play with me.
What is your dream car to own if money was not an issue?
Taking care of collector vehicles is not easy. Do you have any special tips on how to take care of your Cool Rides in and out of storage?
I have not figured that one out yet. Keep them clean and covered!
