Ronni’s Charger – Mopar Action Article Extra
Ronni Steves, dying of cancer, made a wish to the Make A Wish foundation for a 1969 Dodge Charger. The teen had seen and had fallen in love with this model when she was 6 years old. She told her father at the time that she wanted a car just like that.
While the Make A Wish folks tried their best to come through, they were stiffed on a â€™69 Charger project car on eBay. Then they gave up. Mike Mey and Dave Chamberlain picked up the ball and got the Mopar community behind the project (based on a second Charger, as the first was a total loss).
While Ronni passed away before the project was completed, we presume she was there is spirit (even if she wasnâ€™t it still sounds good). Dave presented the car to her father at the Legendary Auto Interiorsâ€™ car show. It was an emotional moment for all concerned and even for those not concerned. After recovering from the emotional moment, the realization hit Dave: He had just given away a $60,000 automobile. Hey, but whatâ€™s a few bucks to make someone feel good, right?
Shown below along with a couple of photos of the car is the credits sign listing all the fine Mopar folks who pitched in and contributed various parts and services to help make Ronniâ€™s wish come true, albeit posthumously.
