    Well... according to the scheduled B15 build date. I wasn't really paying attention, just sort of dawned on me a couple minutes ago. My road runner was built in November of '69, meaning it turns the big 50! Pretty cool its still on the road after a half century.

    I bought it 11 years ago for $2500 as a rusty shell with no drivetrain, today its a less rusty shell with a Hemi & a Torqueflite!

    It needs painted, but I just can't bring myself to take it apart...

        I got a 70 Charger R / T that turned 50 in September, but my other 70 Charger R / Ts don't turn 50 until March, April and July.

            If you had a '50, it would be turning 70. :D

            Happy birthday to all those '70 cars out there. :bday:

            My Sport Satellite was built 11/69 also. Never thought about it until a few days ago. I've finally started painting and I'm spraying it the color it was born with 50 years ago, DY3 Yellow Gold. Not many would choose that color but I'm glad I did.

              It's a little early, but on April 15th of this year, mine will be 50. I Doubt it will be out of storage by then, but I'll have a glass of wine for her wherever I am.

                          I have (4) 70's that turn 50 this year. Never cared to even look at their born on dates. I guess I need to look. I just know they are all older than me.
