Tucked away in the farmlands of rural central Ohio, you’ll find a building that’s easy to miss behind a typical country home. It’s what’s inside that building is truly magical. The Boggs Stable of muscle cars lives inside this building. Is this the biggest muscle car collection you’ll ever find? No, but it’s the mission and story behind this collection that makes it special.
Aaron Boggs and his father Delmos started the Boggs Stable as a family project that’s turned into something much bigger. Aaron enjoys the thrill of tracking down classic muscle cars that are rare, and have unique circumstances that surround them. The goal is to save these cars from a rusty death and make sure they can be enjoyed by everyone in the car community. We discovered The Boggs Stable after doing a story on “The Brow”. You’ll want to check out the details on the Hemi-powered 1966 Plymouth Belvedere right here.
The 1969 A12 Dodge Super Bee known as the “Junkyard Bee” is very special to Delmos. This car is sporting a 440 Six Pack that’s backed by a D21 four-speed transmission. The Super Bee also has the iconic lift-off hood and classic black wheels. Delmos always wanted to own one of these cars, and this one has one heck of a story.
It was found in a junkyard and then meticulously restored by Wayne Smothers. The car was completely blown apart and every inch was gone over. Delmos and Aaron happened to find the car for sale and jumped at the chance to purchase such an amazing vehicle. The Junkyard Bee gets driven on a regular basis and has won plenty of awards over the years.
There’s no doubt that Delmos owns one awesome classic Mopar muscle car, but he also has a really nice modern Mopar muscle car too. The new Dodge Challengers really appealed to Delmos, so he decided that he wanted to add one to the Boggs Stable. A Gold Rush Edition 2021 Doge Challenger TA caught Delmos’ eye at a local car dealership and he knew he had to have it. There were only 70 of these cars built, so it’s a modern classic for sure. The 392 cubic-inch Gen III HEMI makes plenty of horsepower, and the creature comforts of this car make it a great cruiser for Delmos.
Another rare car in the Boggs Stable is Aaron’s 1970 Plymouth AAR Cuda. Plymouth built the AAR Cuda to be a part of the SCCA Trans-Am series. There were only 2,500 of these cars made so they would be eligible for SCCA competition. These E-bodies were built to handle and had many unique features.
Aaron’s Cuda is a numbers-matching car that’s powered by a 340 cubic-inch mill that’s backed by a three-speed A727 column-shifted automatic transmission. The Lime Light paint on the Cuda really makes the car an eye-catching ride. Before Aaron purchased the car, it was restored by John Balow and his team at Muscle Car Restorations. Barlow really went the extra mile on this restoration ensuring the car was perfect. Aaron takes this AAR Cuda to different shows so other people can see this rare ride.
The Mopar section of The Boggs Stable is really impressive. Each of the cars isn’t something you see every day, and they all have interesting stories. We’re looking forward to making another trip to the shop and checking out the other side of the Stable to learn about the GM rides that Aaron and Delmos have collected.
