This is the restoration project belonging to Dan Hyduke . It has been Dans life long dream to see his Dodge Charger back on the road as it once was when he purchased the car new. His wife used to drive it daily back and forth to work for 3 years dealing with all the little bugs that pleaged the car all time. Once the car got about ten years on it Dan realized that it could be worth some money someday and that these cars were maybe going to be rare so he started the restoration in the early ’80s and after two other shops dropped the ball he brought it to Noel Automotive to finish what others have started.

I just took ownership of this 1996 Honda Accord, which was broken down due to an oil leak. After towing it in and adding oil, we started it and found out there were a few more issues. So, we decided to finish the car off.
For super cranking power, we installed a brand new Interstate MT-58 battery. For your (and our) pleasure, the Death of a Honda.
