Restoring the Classics


Here’s a look at the step-by-step process of restoring a 1970 Plymouth Superbird by Russell Jacos of RJ Cars in Arkport.

Since the age of 14, Russell has pursued and explored his passion for restoring and rebuilding the great classic cars of the ‘60s and ‘70s. He opened his own shop, RJ Cars Inc., in 1989. Starting out specializing in Mopar cars and trucks has grown into other makes and models along with specialty projects.

Over the years, he and his staff have restored well over 100 cars and repaired, cleaned, and improved countless others. RJ Cars is now celebrating 30 years in business and continues forward restoring classic cars. Visit for more information.


“Spent probably an hour running around the back roads. Oh what fun! Even got to punch it a few times on a few straightaways – yeah, it’s got some power. Can’t wait to see if I can spin the tires. I’m very pleased with my ‘new’ car. Really looking forward to using it! I most certainly made the right choice.”
