In late 73 my dad ordered a 74 challenger. Picked it up in Wisconsin in December 73 when he came back stateside. He was then stationed at the then air force base in burns flat (western) Oklahoma. Few years went by. He got married. Started a family. Let it go. I was born in 80. No siblings. The car was gone before I was born. Tragically my father passes when I was 8. I’ve had a few pictures of this car. Found an old emblem. Searched everywhere I could think of as a teenager and through my twenties and thirties. Never could find it. A couple years ago my mom passed. While going through stuff I found the original invoice. Now I had the vin. I posted in September on b bodies only in lost and found. It turned up a week ago Saturday. Two days ago it made its way home from San Diego. That a thousand miles from Oklahoma. It’s not the same. Wrong front clip. Wrong color. But it’s definitely my dads car. It’s finally home. After searching my entire adult life and then some. After 24 years of searching. 40 plus years of being gone. It’s home.
