CELINA - Rob Zizelman, of Celina, brought his 1967 Plymouth Sport Fury to the Westgate Charity Car Show in June.
Just as Dr. Frankenstein created life, Zizelman fabricated a beautiful piece of machinery from spare parts.
“This was a rust bucket. I pieced it together with other cars,” Zizelman said. “I did 90 percent of the work.”
He was so intent on his journey of creating this car that no injury was going to slow him down. At one point he fell and broke his arm. Two days later, he was working on it again.
The Plymouth name is well known for the muscle cars it produced. The Plymouth Sport Fury is an ultimate muscle car from its beginning to now. The long body makes it comfortable for cruising the highway. The engine makes it legendary for racing cars from stoplights.
Don’t mess with racing Zizelman’s Mopar beauty, as it has a V-10, 488 cubic inch, eight-liter, four-speed overdrive engine. In other words, it’s fast. The rollbars aren’t just for looks.
Zizelman enjoys driving his creation. He’s taken it to the Florida Keys and along the East Coast. He was hoping to hit Canada in July.
“I just enjoy driving it,” Zizelman said.
