    Hey fellas. I am a lifelong mopar fanatic. I've had a little bit of everything in my 27 years here except an E body.

    I mainly focus on the 69-71 Dodge full size cars, but, I'll be in the market for a Charger soon. Prefer 70, but like the 71-4s too.

    I would also consider a nice Cordoba or Magnum, but mainly after the Charger.

    My current Mopars... and past Late B bodies.

    The red 79 Cordoba had a 72 340 and junk lockup 904 with an 8.75 with 3.91 Suregrip. Ran 14.75 slipping badly.

    The green 79 was my first car, had it 8 months. Got it running and tuned up/cleaned up. 2 weeks into having my license a lady pulled out of front of me and totalled the car. Her fault. Paid me $2700 for $900 car and I got to keep it and part it out.

                              I've always wanted a charger, I have all the C bodies I really want, so, I am getting ready for the Charger. If I can find all these sweet Polaras/Monacos...I can surely find a decent Chodge Darger. I mean. Dodge Charger.

                                    I am aware. But I am also willing to take on a really rusty 70 considering I can buy NEW metal for it. 71-4s are still affordable. I dont care so much about having a real RT or something special. I want one I can build into whatever I want.

                                        I never knew my C was a economical car? Have you priced a tail light for a 66-300 lately?

                                          Economical for the overall car. You can get a running, driving C for the price of a B body shell.
