Drew Ruckle
Des Moines, IA
1974 Plymouth Valiant

You can catch Drew cruising around Des Moines in his 1974 Plymouth Valiant but he probably won’t be driving.  Drew is 11 years old and bought his ’74 Plymouth Valiant with his own money!  Drew’s Valiant has 41,000 original miles with a 318 engine and a cherry bomb muffler.  His Valiant is purple with purple flames and has horns that play the Iowa Hawkeyes fight song!
