Mopar Joe and I were talking the other night about old Mopars we had. He owns a B5 70 Bee and had a uncle back in the day that owned a 70 Bee. He always wondered what happened to the car. It is a F8 70 Bee with a white C stripe, bench seat, 383/4 speed-3.55 and was in the Lanesborough, Minnesota area last he knew of it back in 85-87. It would be so much fun as a friend to reunite Joe with his old family car. Thanks all for your help. toolmanmike

Love the cool old pics, Mike. I tried to buy one like that several years ago in South Dakota, but I couldn't come to an agreement with the owner.

Joe called a few min. ago and was so excited to meet a previous owner. Not the current owner though. Looking for that guy. Apparently a father/son bought the car and may be the present owner. tmm

Good luck. A guy in my grandmothers neighborhood back East had a similar car. A green 70. He weighed about 400 lbs and always had a smirk on his face. He SMOLDERED them. You could hear him coming. One of my fondest childhood memories.

That car brings back childhood memories for me too, my father had a 70 white R/T jacked in the back with the same wheels, lol... 440-4 car, auto console, scat pack sticker on the 1/4 glass, ram charger hood, and he smoked sets of tires constantly, our street looked like a drag strip, man them were good years...

That green car in the pics has so much soul, how did no one make a movie around the '70 coronet yet? Give it to a rogue cop, a slick back villain, or bad ass out for redemption of his slaughtered family, it would work for all of them...

Possibly in the Afton, Mn. area.

TMM,

I know the post is old, but I just stumbled on it. Any chance this car was purchased from Hillcrest Dodge in Rochester? I have a Super Bee from the dealership and would like to find a trunk sticker from Hillcrest. Are there any pictures of the back of the car?

Thanks.

D
