    Hi B-Body community!

    I am Kevin from Austria (Europe). I am glad that I found this forum!

    Like the majority my first dream car was a Charger (68-70). This started around 10 years ago and after the years I found other models interesting and beautiful too but of course only Mopar and mainly the B-Bodies.

    So, 10 years later I worked and saved all of my money. I packed my dad and we drove a day to look at a B-Body.
    I bought it and yesterday was the day, the shipping company called me and it arrived early afternoon at my home on a truck. Battery was dead, we managed to fired it up then and I drove it home into the garage. I had barely brake power (don't know why yet), pushed the pedal almost to the firewall and this resulted in a much higher level of excitement that I already had while driving ;)

    However, I am very proud to say that I own my first car, a 1968 Dodge Coronet. Finally a dream came true for me!

    As I have quite a few things to fix, parts to buy and partly want to restore there will be for sure upcoming questions. I would highly appreciate someone who could support me with tips of where to find certain parts and so on.. Also I am not familiar with some special technical terms in English as they often cannot be translated easily from German to English with the same meaning. I try to do my best though.

    I say Danke im voraus and write you soon :)

              That car's color is great. Steel wheels and dog dish hub caps are the best look.
              You should be very happy with that car.
              I do understand why a 68-70 Charger would be most people's "dream car".
              I confess that I have a "soft spot" for the 68 and 69 Coronets because a 69 was my first Dodge.
              I think second generation Chargers are in danger of becoming "klischee".
              (I looked the up German translation)
              That is why I chose a Road Runner, when I decided to get my one and only B body.
              You probably know a 69 Road Runner was Motor Trends Car Of The Year.
              I could have bought just about any Charger I wanted.
              What I'm saying is maybe that's why this commercial was made with a Coronet.
              A Charger would have been too obvious.
              Have you seen it?
              Best regards from Georgia USA.
