Dad would be MOST Definately Be Proud!!! Congratz Escalante’s Outstanding Car! Absolutely Love Challengers, Fantastic looking car.
This is my all-time favorite story, and I love the car. The window louvers without the back spoiler and those wheels are so perfect…vamanos con el hemi!
On behalf of the the Escalantes, I send a special thanks to everyone who has posted their comments. Thank you Petrolicious…for giving us such a wonderful platform to share our story with car enthusiasts around the world. All the best in 2016.
What a great story! That cars sentimental value to that family is obviously huge… they have such history with it.. and amazing that they all clearly have loved it forever.
As for the car itself – also awesome. I love the slotted mags and rear louvre..!
Definitely this has been one of my favourite stories…congratulations to PETROLICIOUS for catching not only the story around the cars but also their soul and to Escalante family for houring their father’s memory in such a wonderful way!!
El Hemi! Loved the story and the take on it’s true value- which is priceless. Killer car and I can’t agree more with the memories these vehicles give the kids and family. Nice job!!!
Fantastic story – ‘on the balance sheet, it is zero value’. Some things money just can’t buy!
You have certainly honored your fathers memory. Beautiful story.
What a fantastic story! Its videos like these that we can all appreciate the bond of family unity within the classic car world.
I love that kind of stories where our favorite item has a true heart story and becomes the symbol of a beloved one. Thanks petrolicious and may the Escalante family keep this car as long as they can.
Awesome. A truly heartwarming story and the opening soundtrack was so redolent of Oye Como Va era Santana (my original guitar inspiration) that this video is definitely one of my favourites to date.
Incredible story and video, well done. Some unbelievable muscle cars selling at Mecum’s Kissimmee sale in Jan. Check out our write up on this one perticular collection
Great story.. Love the old super 8 videos.. Again always nice to see people driving these rare cars…
