A suprise waiting for this marine

Marine Andrew Stiles will have a surprise when gets home from Iraq -- a cherry 1973 Plymouth Barracuda. He bought the car 30 years ago but hasn't gotten around to doing much of the restoration work himself. So, students at WyoTech in Laramie, Wyoming, are restoring the classic muscle car. The idea for the project comes from an Oklahoma neighbor of Stiles, who has two nephews who are WyoTech graduates. Teams of students at the technical school will be repairing the rusty body, updating the engine and transmission, and restoring the interior. They'll also give the Marine a new stereo system for his restored ride. Stiles is due home in May.
