    The original Rod Shop Dodge Colt sits about 2 miles from my house and the original Rod Shop 71 Hemi sat 3 miles in the other direction since 1977 until it was sold several years back..and a Rod Shop speed shop franchise sat 6 miles south of me. Building is still there with all the speed equipment decals still in the windows but now it's a Honda motorcycle dealership.

    I'll post pics when I get home.

    I was told that this Covette was possibly built by the Rod Shop. It was reported to have run at the National Trail dragstrip and was from the Columbus area. It was candy green at one time. I have been looking for information on it for a while and have gotten some leads but nothing has panned out. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
