JJ & Lynne's Stone Souper Charger ready to roar to life Thursday morning
Thursday morning, August 16th, the sweet smell of Motor City Muscle will fill the air as JJ & Lynne’s Stone Souper Charger roars to life. Eight months ago, it was just an idea to restore a 1968 Dodge Charger to raise money for Focus:HOPE.
The countless hours of work by hundreds of volunteers from all over southeast Michigan will be showcased when the engine of the Stone Souper Charger is started for the first time outside the studios of classic rock WCSX-FM 94.7, located at One Radio Plaza in Royal Oak Township. The “birthday” celebration will begin at 7am with the arrival of the Stone Souper Charger and many members of the volunteer team working on the restoration. During the 8am hour, JJ & Lynne will officially fire up the 600 plus horse power engine for the first time in public. To add to the festivities, local classic car enthusiasts will be on hand displaying their classic cruisers.
JJ & Lynne Stone Souper Charger raffle tickets cost $25 each and 100% of the ticket price will go directly to Focus:HOPE. One lucky ticket holder will win both the restored 1968 Souper Charger and a 2 year lease of a 2007 HEMI R/T Charger on September 20th, 2007 at the JJ & Lynne Stone Soup event at the 94.7 WCSX Studios.
