Just joined and wanted to say hi. I’m restomoding my 69 road runner I’ve owned since 1975. I bought it in 1975 when I was a senior in high school. It was my daily driver until the late 80s. I turned it into a drag car. I’m putting it back on the street now and going thru the entire car. It sat in the back of my shop for the last 15 years. I’ve been working on it for the past three years on the rotisserie.
That's a long time to own a car, must have a pile of sentimental value. Got any pics you can share?

All stock 40,000 miles, the day I brought it home.

All cool cars! I had two road runners at one time both 69. The blue one was a fresh air hood car. Someone made me an offer I couldn’t refuse on it. Had 70 Chrysler 300 convertible that I wish I kept. Several 70 dusters and a 73 dart. Many dodge trucks also.
