Those who followed my travel blog across the USA will know that in February, I finally got our Dodge Challenger complied and on the road here.

What wasn’t mentioned was that during shipping, one of the front wheels ended up with a small gouge and some scratches.

It was one of those times when I thought I could leave it alone and not worry about it. But time after time I kept seeing this damage. Hey, we bought the Dodge brand new and I felt it wasn’t new anymore with the damage I kept seeing.

So – a quick email to The Wheel Magician, and booked in a time.

Tony turned up as promised and checked the wheel over – an easy repair he said.

The wheel was taken off the car, and thirty minutes later, the damage fixed and the paint matched.

I’ve got to say, I struggled to find where he did the repair – the result was that good.

For around a hundred bucks, my wheel has returned to its former glory – no more quick glances down at that annoying damage anymore.

So – many thanks to The Wheel Magician – I can sleep easy again now. 🙂

How on earth to start this? I've been car/bike/truck crazy since I was a teen. Like John, I had the obligatory Countach poster on the wall. I guess I'm more officially into classic and muscle cars than anything else - I currently have a '65 Sunbeam Tiger that left the factory the same day as I left the hospital as a newborn with my mother. How could I not buy that car? In 2016 my wife and I drove across the USA in a brand-new Dodge Challenger, and then shipped it home. You can read more on We did this again in 2019 in a 1990 Chev Corvette - you can read about that trip on DriveLife. I'm a driving instructor and an Observer for the Institute of Advanced Motorists - trying to do my bit to make our roads safer.
