    Kind of funny how I got started but will give you the highlights of Going Mopar!. Always have been a GM guy with a bunch of 66 Super Sport Chevelles and GTOs until I was with my friend tom and he had offered his 69 Hemi engine for sale to a guy, which surprised me that he was selling it. Lucky for me the guys wife said no and I instantly said I would take it. Had it built and needed a car to put it in and I found a clean 69 Coronet close to home and now its a running and almost on the road driving car. I put a Dana 60 to go with the 4 speed tranny and now on the home stretch on driving it. Its easy to see the fascination with these cars and glad to be going mopar!

      Welcome to the dark side, my Dad was a transformed Chevy guy. Once he saw the light it was all over!

        I was never brand specific...I drove whatever I gravitated to, corvettes, mustangs, chevelles, firebirds, Camaros,Buicks...it wasn't until about 4 years ago that I realized I never had a mopar...or a big block. My co-workers husband (now one of my close friends) has a 70 Charger R/T 440 pistol grip 4spd, a 70 Road Runner 440, a 76 duster that he races...so he helped me buy my 1st mopar.
        As I went into the local car show circuit...I realized the types of people that usually attached themselves to certain brands...(yes I am generalizing/judging) not all...but usually-the die hard Camaro/Pontaic guys,etc. tended to be standoffish...I got hooked by having something that is not "every other car" at a show...unless it's a mopar show lol. AND I got hooked by the family feel of the mopar guys. Being the black sheep has always been okay with me...
        So welcome...there are some great guys and tons of information/advice to go along with it!
