    Just thought I'd stop in and say a quick "Hello". My name is Brian and I live about an hour north of Albany, New York. I wish I could brag about the B Body I own or the Hemi car or any old, vintage Mopar for that matter, but I can't. At least not yet anyways.
    I am currently beginning my serious search for a vintage Mopar though. I have spent alot of time narrowing down my list of cars I would like to own, and of those, ones I could AFFORD to own. I have narrowed the list down to a Charger, Roadrunner, or even possibly a Dart, if the car caught my eye and was reasonable enough in price.
    Of the Roadrunners, the '70-'74's are by far my favorites. The Chargers that catch my eye are the '71-'74 vintage and I like the looks of the '71-72 Darts. I know these cars weren't known for the performance of earlier versions, but as I said, these cars are ones that are more in my price range. I can't see paying a ton of money for a car that needs even more money to make it road worthy just to have it sit in a garage or in my yard for years while I try to scrounge money to rebuild said car. I'm also quickly tiring of the ads telling everyoen how "rare" the car trying to be sold is. I'm sorry, but I find it hard to believe a '73 Duster with a slant six engine and automatic transmission with "console delete" option is rare. The way I look at it right now, ANY Mopar is rare to me simply because I don't currently own one.
    I do, however, own a 2000 Dodge Ram 4wd Standard Cab, Shortbox pickup though, so maybe the counts for something.
    Anyways, I look forward to getting to know everyone here and making new friends. I also look forward to learning more about these great cars and hope that in the future I can become a more valuable, contributing member. Thanks for letting me join!!! :grin:

    Welcome. I'm sure a large segment of the people here have been down the road of (at least at times) not having the money to spend on our cars.

    So if you want to contribute, I'm accepting donations for my Duster's 408 project lol

    No need to OWN a car to post here, just a love of the hobby is enough.

    I hope people don't consider talking about, posting pictures of our car, or showing what we own in our signatures as BRAGGING.

    Until recently I NEVER posted pictures of my cars on any of these sites until members really got on me about it.

    Years ago when I was single and driving brand X 63-67 Corvettes, when it came up in conversation about what kind of car I had, I always said "I drive an old Chevy." I always felt that if that made a difference in how I was preceived by someone else that they were PROBABLY pretty shallow and someone I was not interested in spending time with. Besides, it was always interesting to see people's reactions when they saw the car without having any idea ahead of time.
