Drew Ruckle
Des Moines, IA
1968 Mercury Cougar

Drew bought this car in March when he was on Spring Break. The car currently is being restored and will be the same green but with a black vinyl top. The engine that came with the car is a 428. Last year, he won Car of the Month with a 1974 Plymouth Valiant, that was purple with purple flames. He sold that car at Meccum Auto Auction and with the proceeds bought this car. His dad is helping him restore it since he is only 12 years old.
