Videos: Tony Netzel Drifts Twin Turbo ’61 Plymouth Belvedere In The Snow

Putting your beloved car away for winter is a common practice for most car enthusiasts. A lot of us dread the days when the snow starts flying and the salt starts to get laid down on the roads. Salt isn’t friendly to cars in general and typically is the main reason we have to do rust replacement and companies such as AMD exist. Being as we are right in the middle of the winter season, many of us have snow have the ground right now, including us here at Mopar Connection.

Tony Netzel from Duluth, Minnesota is the exception to this. While many of us have our Mopars tucked away in the garage under their covers, he’s out doing the exact opposite: he’s having fun in the snow with his killer twin-turbo powered 1961 Plymouth Belvedere. With the snow flying and a fair bit of snow on the ground, Tony pulled his slick green Belvedere out and decided to go play in the winter wonderland. They do say turbos love cold air.

We first met Tony over a year ago at the 2015 Mopar Nats and fell in love with his Pro Street Bel. A master fabricator and dyed-in-the-wool Mopar enthusiast, Tony has put more miles on this monster than many do with their daily drivers. And we have to give Tony props; you don’t get much more dedicated than this! Many wouldn’t even consider doing this with their Mopars. We have to admit though, this looks like a lot of fun. That exhaust note is absolutely addicting!

Car Feature Editor – Since the age of 4, Cody has been obsessed with everything Mopar. On Christmas of 1998, Cody's parents gave him a rusty '69 Charger shell that his father saved from a field. Cody's garage still features that '69 Charger as well as the additions of a '71 Charger R/T, '71 Super Bee, '08 Challenger SRT8 and a '12 Ram 3500. Cody can truly and proudly say that he is a true Mopar nut in love with all types of Mopars!
