    Johnny Lightning rear wheel fender "Plymouth" decal

    That's a great idea, I could use a mock-up with some painter's tape. And yes, the dust trail decal is a must!!

    Johnny Lightning rear wheel fender "Plymouth" decal

    Thanks brother! Man, that fender would love nice in the back seat against the white seats!!! It's a 383 4-speed with Hurst pistol grip, but no A/C. Drives better with the windows down anyway!

    Johnny Lightning rear wheel fender "Plymouth" decal

    I know I will get a lot of tomatoes thrown at me, but I'm planning on putting the Johnny Lightning's "PLYMOUTH" rear wheel fender decals on my 1971 Roadrunner. In all fairness, I don't know Johnny Lightning other than the fact it's a brand of die cast models from 1969. I'm 42 years old, so I'm...

    1971-1972 Roadrunners hitting the market for crazy prices!!!

    Hey 1STMP, you could be right about the EV market slowing down the classic market a bit, but I don't think it will we are a dying breed!! I think I'm on the younger side of the pack because most of my classic car buddies are late 50s early 60s. I'm 42 years old, and I can tell ya, there is a lot...

    1971-1972 Roadrunners hitting the market for crazy prices!!!

    Hey Dana, you and I are roughly the same age. I was 18 in 1998-1999... and you're right, I also remember muscle cars from 68-74 going for the price you mentioned. I had my eyes on a B5 Blue SS Chevy Chevelle for $7,000... way out go my reach. But that's my point, no one was paying those...

    Need a new oil dip stick for 383 engine

    Hey Guys, I have a 1971 RR, with a 383 engine 4 speed. I need to buy a new oil dip stick for it. Just wanted to know if I also need to know the year of the engine? Or just the 383 size? Also, would you know where the year would be stamped? I was told years ago that it was a 1965... but I have...

    Hurst Pistol Handle

    Hurst Pistol Handle

    Not that I know... but, I did pull the rubber boot up a little hoping the rubber would hit the center console instead of the metal handle. I haven't pulled it back down into place and that's probably why it looks shorten

    Hurst Pistol Handle

    Hahaha, sometimes I have bad thoughts like this... but then I remember what happens to Wile E. Coyote every time he uses a saw... I would end up with my car falling through the center console!! Hahah

    Hurst Pistol Handle

    I was hoping this was a typical issue with a quick fix. I'm guessing I'll have to pull the shift boot up to get a better look at the adapter plate. I'm really hoping the center console wasn't misplaced.

    Hurst Pistol Handle

    I have a 1971 Plymouth Roadrunner with Hurst Pistol Grip with center console. I've had it for about 1.5 years. Does anyone know why the metal handle hits the chrome trim of the center console when the shifter goes into 2nd and 4th gear? It's been happening since I've had the car and it's...
