Thank you Sir. I hope to visit your country someday.G, day from Australia
...wow...A+ for your effort, and thanks.
Thank you. Missouri is where everything almost fell apart for me as I was driving from Fayetteville, AR to Northern Lower Michigan to start a job that would finally allow me to earn enough to pay my bills and begin recovering from debt accumulated in school.Welcome from Missouri!! A great story of a ride through life, well done!!
Thanks...lived 18 years in NKY...still have a property on the north side of Cincinnati.Welcome aboard from Ohio.
Nice to meet you. It seems we find ourselves in West Chester somewhat regularly.Hi from West Chester, just a bit up the road sounds like!
Looks great! I admire all the hard work. Are you in Oklahoma? I might have a few Mo-parts laying around near Tulsa.Hi all. I'm the second owner of a 1973 Dodge Charger SE I drug out of a Bartlesville, OK pasture in 1994 after paying $350 for it. I got the car running and drove it for about six years as I struggled to put myself through school and progress through the early days of my career. It took every penny I could find to get through school back then, so as things would break on the Charger, they'd get deferred. Finally in late 2000 I felt like I was in a position where I wasn't "judgement proof" anymore, so I decided to take the Charger off the road before I had an accident. ;)
Anyhow I've hauled this car through two big moves, and stored it in various locations over the years. Now I finally have a place to work on it, and time and money. Hopefully I can build and maintain the motivation necessary...and find a source for parts. The stories I can tell of the challenges this car presented and helped me overcome are many, and while it would be a lot easier to just write a check for a fully restored classic car (which I might do someday), I feel I should get her back on the road, in better condition than before.
Nothing special about the car, in itself. 318/2bbl/auto/1973SE. It's the memories, stories, and a physical reminder of the dark days I had to push through to get where I am now.
