    Hello all,


    I just wanted to stop by and introduce myself. My name is Curtis and I'm from Ohio. On July 11th I lost my father. He was a mopar man through and through. We started his 1968 Charger project when I was a young boy but never got back to putting it back together. I had told him for years it would be back on the road again. With that being said, and his passing, I am going to fulfill my promise and his dream. Over the next few months/years I will keep you all updated on its progress. I'm sure over this time I will have a lot of questions for you all and hoping for some guidance.

      Curtis, we are all sorry for the loss of your Dad. Since many on the site aren't "spring chickens" as it were, we also have experienced your loss. You are to be commended for stepping up and going forward to complete a project too honor him.
      From The Pacific Northwest, welcome to the crowd. :luvplace:

        Welcome to the site! Sorry to hear about your Dad. I lost mine a few years ago and its not easy. Everytime I look at the Coronet I think about him and his 65 Chrysler 300. Anyway, goodluck on the Charger!

        Welcome from Indiana. Lost my dad/best friend 16 years ago, still think of him everyday. Good luck with your Charger project.

        All,

        Thank you so much for the support! Pics will come, still trying to take care of my mother and her needs. None the less, she wants the charger on the road just as much as I do and my father. He was a mechanic by trade, so I am going to rebuild the car with his tools.
