Mopar - Band of Brothers

Photography by Nick D'Agostino

They say pictures are worth a thousand words. In the case of the Scott brothers out of Warren, Michigan, their passion for street machines is more than evident when you lay eyes on their private collection. You could say that it was a family affair, which was especially obvious when Derick (the youngest of the Scotts) informed us that his interest is solely due to his older brothers, who used to take him along for rides and allowed him to wrench on their vast array of Mopars.

Whatever the reason may be, the Scott brothers have created everything from mild to wild. And with the combined enthusiasm for car crafting, it's safe to say that they've built some outstanding examples of Chrysler's finest
