    My dad still got the mopar bug I know this is an a body but cool thing,dad is 83 and going for it. 1967 barracuda formula s 273 4spd and he's excited about the 2x4 offy intake! He has a 71 dart but he had me list it on a bodies to help fund his new ride.

      Very cool!

      These classic cars have no age barrier - young or old!

      I wish him good luck with the build and burning the tires off of it!!!

        Awesome! I mean the car itself AND your dad's continued passion for old Mopars. That's what will keep him "young". I love late-60's fish too.

                    Yeah I agree with everyone else. I smiled too when I read your post and saw the pic. What a gift that pops is still burning for a project Mopar at his young age. I wish him Gods speed on it and enjoying the process. He’ll probably live to be 103... or more

                      Yeah it makes me feel good about his outlook on life, he's talked about the 2x4 offy intake ever since we looked at the car!

                          well things are going well picked up a set of factory pistons and rods for his new ride and sold his 71 dart today for $3200 instead of what some were saying was a parts car anyway. Now we have some funds to get his hughes cam kit and some body panels.

                                  Well a lot has happened since I started this, dad developed a blood clot in his leg and he said that his foot was hurting, never mind it was turning purple, never mentions that, well long story short had to have a new artery put in from his groin to his ankle. Surgeon thought he was going to have to get his leg amputated from above his knee down! Well he did great and after about two weeks in the hospital and then 4 weeks rehab learning to walk again he's back to normal. He just had his car picked up by his painter! Yes!

                                      You go dad! I can only hope I’m still working on cars and my son is showing his pride in me like you do!
