|The amazing story (we only feature “amazing” stories—even if they only amaze ourselves) of George Tutundjian and his quest for a 1971 340 ‘Cuda convertible, and the quest—again–for the same car after he bought it and sold it. This thing drags on seemingly for a hundred years which, if accurate would have made this the oldest ‘Cuda on record. The suspense builds as the story unfolds and unfolds and…
The suspense builds to a crescendo pitch as George closes in for the kill (so to speak). It was so nerve-wracking, that we told our publisher that we needed a 2-week vacation in Hawaii just to recover from the suspense. We’re sure most of our readers would feel the same way (a 2-week vacation in Hawaii on our publisher’s expense. Just present a doctor’s note showing Mopar Action-related stress syndrome.)
This is all the original (not copies) paperwork, including temporary California paper license plate, Chrysler IBM punch-cards, window stickers, build sheets that George had kept all the years he had searched for the car. He had offered it all to various owners in exchange for the right of first refusal in the event they ever wanted to sell the car. None took him up on his offer. So much for the perceived value of documentation.
