1970 Plymouth Duster

Kyle Kent And His 1970 Plymouth Duster

What started out as a simple Father’s Day promotion between local radio station Rock 95 in Barrie Ontario and Radical Rods Rides and Restoration turned into one of the more memorable classic car restorations in the 14 year history of our company.  Here is the story of Kyle Kent, his 1970 Plymouth Duster and Radical Rods and Rides.

In the spring of 2012, Radical Rods and Rock 95 ran a radio campaign called “Pimp My Dad’s Ride” for Father’s Day.  The winner of the campaign was going to receive $5000 worth of car restoration work from us.  The $5000 could be spent in our shop anyway the winning father wanted – custom paint job, custom interior work, engine or mechanical work, etc….  Rock 95 selected the 10 finalists and then it was up to the public to vote on which father they wanted to see win the grand prize.  The winner was Kyle Kent and his 1970 Plymouth Duster.  Read more
