a young couple were there test driving a hemi R/T, with manual brakes and manual steering.
The small wife decided it wasn't right for a daily driver, as her 90 pounds found it difficult to park... that front heavy car's armstrong steering is no fun.
But when they got back to the dealership, she noticed this freshly returned A12 Super Bee sitting on the lot. After driving the car, the couple realized it was much more suitable for daily driving duties so they purchased the Bee and took it home to Williams Lake.
They used it as the daily driver for 18 years.
Then it was bought and sold, and bought and sold and restored, and hit the car shows.
In 2011, Ray and his wife Rachelle towed the car up to a car show in Williams Lake “While we were at the show, a woman driving past noticed the Super Bee parked in the show. She hit the brakes at the end of the road, turned around and came back. She parked and came up to us and said, “That’s my old car!”
“After talking to her for a bit, she went home and brought back some old photos of the car, the original registration papers, original keys and the Super Bee emblem that was broken off the trunk lid. After the show, we took her and her grand kids for a ride in the car. It was really cool! Since then, we’ve kept in touch with the family and always send them photos of the car to let them know it has a good and pampered life.”
