Jaimee Mizzi’s 1995 Jeep Wrangler

Representing Start Your Engines!® Fuel System Revitalizer

SYE-JaimeeMizzi_1955JeepWranglerWe bought this Jeep brand new back in 1995. It was bone stock with 27 inch tires. It was a Jeep, but not the coolest looking one. I wanted it built up from the first day but wanted to at least get it paid off before making major changes.   It took time but we finally got to upgrade it. My husband took it down to bare frame and built it back up.

With a garage move in the process it was put back together after 3 years with no lost parts!  She came back as a 1995 wrangler with her original 4.0 6 cylinder engine with a turbo!  Heack with the Hemi…..she got a Turbo! lol… It has 7 inch lift with  Dana 60’s ..When they were new….35inch boggers.

There running a little bare now, but looked cool new!  Hoping to get some new tires for the new year!?!  The blue-ish color is her stock color, but we spray bombed here and there to make it look okay till she gets a new paint job. The goal is Synergy Green. Bushwhacker flares helps cover the color a bit. Life keeps getting in the way, but were hoping to have the money to get her shiny fresh looking soon!


Rodney Updegrave’s 1954 Cadillac Series 62

Representing 303® Products:

303-Rodney Updegrave_1954CadillacSeries62HardtopMy ride is a 1954 Cadillac Series 62 Hardtop, I purchased this car in 2008 from a family who owned the car for almost 40 years.

My father and I did 100% of the work over a 3 year period, we don’t have a professional shop, its just a father/son hobby. The Caddy sports a LS1/L60E from a 2004 Pontiac GTO, Camaro Z-28 front frame section, Billet Specialties Dagger 20″ and17″ wheels & shaved door handles. My amazing father even sewed the entire interior up for me on his own, it sports a charcoal grey interior w/ custom red stitching, custom console, & dakota digital gauge insert. The car was originally a rear a/c car from the factory, so I decided to leave the air scoops on for a cool conversation piece. I am very proud of the way the car turned out, but even more proud to say my Dad and I built it….I’d be honored to be chosen for a Cool rides pick ….
