      I can't believe the iPhone camera took that. Typically the iPhone photos are just "ok" but it did a great job that evening.

    Excellent job Jim. Would love to see it in person at a show sometime. I'm in Phoenix. Hope we cross paths.

    Damn, DAMN NICE '68 and you did great on the photo's. I'm going to start on my '66 Charger next year, if I can keep my wife from to many vacations, because we own a motor inn and close for the winter. I'm trying to finish what we call our "company car" which is a factory five racing cobra. She was raised on fords and I was RAISED MOPAR. As you can probably guess we are gearheads and that's where we came up with the idea and name for our motel The Gear Head Inn and all the rooms are done per muscle cars of the '60's early '70's. I think it's great you still have the 318 in the car and once again....DAMN NICE! JIM AT GEAR HEAD INN.
