Congratulations to Logan Leatham for winning this year’s Readers Resto of the Year vote. His 1970 Dodge Challenger top-scored by a fair margin from a very hot field of 13 projects that we published over 2018.

Logan reckons he didn’t start out as a Mopar fan, but ended up becoming one purely by chance.

"You can blame the Targa High Country for this project – that’s where I first saw a 'Cuda being driven in anger," he told us when we published the feature.

"The first year I went – I’ll always remember this – a green Plymouth 'Cuda with a Hemi in it lined up. I reckon the noise it made had the koalas dropping out of the trees. The skid it did off the starting line was massive, but it couldn’t do turns. You could hear it slow right down and then it was on the noise again. It was something different. Most of the cars were Holdens, Falcons and Mustangs, but there didn’t seem to be another Chrysler. From then on I wanted one!"
