    Hello from Southern California. My name is Brian and I just inherited a 1970 Roadrunner. It's a lemon twist 383 with A/C and without the original motor. It runs and drives but needs some work (engine, trans, suspension, electrical, etc). I'm planning to drive it a lot, hope to get tied in to a local club, and need to find a good local MOPAR mechanic/restorer (Temecula, CA...so L.A./San Diego area). Looking forward to the adventure with all of you. Thanks!

    Photos to follow!

          Thanks! You must be pretty close to Mike Mancini's shop in RI! Wish I could just drop off my RR with him for a few months!

          There are and handful of gifts that really show you love someone: In my opinion they are:

          1. Cash/stocks
          2. Old Mopars
          3. Fresh home grown tomatoes

          Congratulations Brian! Post more pics!

          I’m up in the middle of Maine to realistically it would be about a 5 1/2 - 6 hour drive depending on traffic. But certainly closer than you, unfortunately. Good luck with it! It all part of the hobby and the journeys with our cars!
