    Hey y'all! Just wanted to drop in to say hi. I just bought a 1970 Charger R/T and am looking for some help from the experts in getting stuff sorted out on her, the ultimate goal is to make Hot Rod Power Tour in June. Looking forward to meeting you guys!

      Howdy neighbor! Lol!

      Here are some more pics of her... she is far from perfect but as always she's a work in progress. I also have a 46 DeSoto, a 66 Dart GT and 4 Tin Grille Dodge trucks to tinker with. :)

        :welcome:from the Pa Hinterland!
        Gorgeous car!
        Ask away, there are a ton of old duffers here that have fixed anything and everything you can possibly come up with.

        Just have to say it,
        that thing got a hemi?
        :lol:

        Edit: just saw the pic, no hemi:D
        Still a stunning color combo, but I may be biased

        Yeeeeah, I wish it was a Hemi but those are just flat-out out of my price range. Maybe some day!

                  Yeah I had to snag it, been looking for a "nice" MoPar like this for a couple years. The car has issues and it was priced accordingly but I already have several things addressed (new door cards, stereo, etc). The only issue it has now (I am posting in the driveline thread about) is a vibration, which I think is either the flywheel, motor mount or harmonic balance, IE it's not like a miss or engine issue, it's in the rotating assembly I'm pretty sure. I'll get her sorted out eventually.

                        It's not bad, I came from Iowa which was way worse and Florida which was way better. TN isn't terrible though, it's livable.

                            The mountains and scenery is really awesome in places. I have the highest waterfall east of the Mississippi (256ft) about 45 min from my house and dozens of others, plus I like that we have seasons but the winters generally aren't the god awful misery that the Midwest had, I can't do that 30 below crap.
