“I love looking at my Dakota and saying to myself, ‘Wow,’ I did that,” Brack said. “I’m not a professional builder, although many would look at my truck and disagree. I just take a lot of pride and passion in what I do. I took the right amount of time to build it right the first time. There is no greater feeling than seeing the astonished looks on people’s faces when they see it.”

The long-running Mopar “Top Eliminator” program shines a light on passionate and dedicated Mopar enthusiasts who display unmatched skill in modifying or preserving a classic or modern-day Mopar vehicle.

Neil Wedeking of Marble Rock, Iowa, was named the second Mopar “Top Eliminator” winner of the year for his 1970 Plymouth AAR ‘Cuda during the 28th Annual Midwest Mopars in the Park car show in Farmington, Minn.
