Ron Beaubien - Sales

Ron Beaubien AKA Mr. Mopar is the youngest of four children from a car crazy family. Growing up during the 70’s, the Beaubien family driveway would be a Barrett Jackson gold mine by today’s standards.

Boasting everything from a 1967 Camaro to a Plymouth Superbird he fell in love with cars and racing at a young age. Spending many of his younger years at the famed Detroit Dragway, it was no surprise that Ron chose to make his career in motorsports. Having been at Diamond since his senior year in high school he has worked his way up the ladder from shipping and receiving, the diamond machine shop, and our head porting facility that used to be on site. Armed with a solid background in performance Ron moved into the sales department in 1996.

Despite all the cars he has been exposed to Ron has always had a soft spot for 340 Mopars and has three in his collection a 1971 Demon, a 1970 Dart Swinger, and a 1973 Dart Sport that he is working on as a restoration project with his sons.
