Hi,

My name is Butch Pink and I live in Manchester, Michigan. My first Mopar was a 1969 Dodge Charger 383 car that I purchased when I was 20 years old. Over the years I have strayed away from Mopar and I am glad to be back!

I just found a 1965 Coronet 500 318 Poly car that is a true barn find that has been in the same family since purchased new in 1965 here in Detroit. The car was parked in the barn in 1991. I brought it home this past weekend and look forward to bringing it back to its original condition with a few tweaks to improve performance. The car has 60k original miles and runs today.

I look forward to learning more about the B-Body and getting back into the Mopar life!

-Butch

Our family had burgundy one of those when I was in high school.
And I had a blue 69.
