Update on Doug Monin’s 1969 Dodge Coronet Super Bee

Some of my die hard fans, ummm… both of them…may remember the article on Doug Monin and his in primer 1969 Dodge. With a beer in hand Doug told me about his project around a year ago, and…

With me and Doug having a beer in hand, he told me about it again, because one thing car guys hate is talking about their cars, right? Not.


The car is getting ready for its first show, now that the paint is on and the engine is in. Doug had the interior in the car, but took it back out to run a wiring harness.

We will come back to Monin and hopefully see the burnout that he was dreaming about when the car is done. Right now it is just a lot of sanding.

The End of the Chicken Wing Motor Cycle Tour.

Or is that “Impromptu Motor”… well whatever. The riding season is about to come to a close, and yes I have been riding but mostly it was to work and I have been tired. It does feel good to get out. I also have done my first group ride and meet some really nice people, whom I do hope to see again.

dsc_0001We went to Letchworth State Park and back, saw some pretty New York fall scenery.

On the way back we stopped at a Bar and Gill called Charred, in Mount Morris, New York. I found a new love in my life, and that is Angry Orchard Apple Beer. It was really good! The wings were also charred, hence the name, and I loved every bite.


This ride was a great way to cap off summer, or fall as we come to winter, I want more time to write and I hope to see more articles here. As the cars get put away, it makes them easy to find and their owners get out of practice talking about them, and one thing I know is car owners never tire of talking about their ride!
