Hurst Vehicles Invade The Lake Mirror Classic Auto Festival

There were many show stoppers featured during the 2010 Lake Mirror Classic Auto Festival. One car owner wowed us with not one, but two Hurst customized vehicles. Phillip Anderson is the proud owner of a 2009 Hurst Challenger and a 1969 Hurst Oldsmobile 442. Not only does he own some sweet Hurst metal, Mr. Anderson is one of two Hurst "Ambassadors at Large" in the world.

Built in Irvine, California and starting life as a 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8, Mr. Phillips' Challenger is the only Hurst Challenger in Florida, and it is the 15th of a 15 unit run. Can anyone say "rare"?! The Oldsmobile is completely stock (for a Hurst Olds, anyway) and is so mint the stickers are still on the tires.

These cars are by no means "Trailer Queens"; they were driven to and from the show, and Mr. Phillips enjoys the Challenger every chance he gets. Who wouldn't? I'd live in that car. The Challenger was a Christmas gift from Phillip's wife, Ruthelise Anderson. Along with everyone responsible for building the car, Mrs. Anderson signed the inside face of the trunklid. Her quote? "To my Phillip . . . From Ruthelise with Love!" A 572 bhp Muscle Car for Christmas?! That's some kind of love! The choice of 500+ horse hoon-mobile exhibits excellent taste as well.

Enjoy this gallery from the Lake Mirror Classic and look for an indepth article about these two beasts, Mr. Anderson, and everything Hurst, on Monday.
