      Lordy, Nation is a piece of work. I am smiling all the way to the garage. I love a debate just like anyone and well, can hold my own.. Here's the "Loser" with his "Winnings"...

        Back to the car and less useless banter...
        1. NOS items I have had for a LONG time waiting for the right car. Well, it is here.. 1 500 script for the taillamp panel I have had for nearly 20 years and headlamp bezels.
        2. The NOS center grille came with the car.

          Original carbs but the rear will need to have a top swap. Somewhere down the line the top half with the choke was switched out. That should be an easy fix. Hey Scott !!!

            Cool car and will be watching along as this one gets restored. I know you upgraded, but I sure would have had a hard time selling the T5 500. I liked it so much that a picture of it has been my screen saver for the last couple of months.

              I have seen this video also - a few years ago, and the film does not make the car look red....but if the guy says it's red...then it's red.

              I stand corrected. :)

                  Cool car. Cool story. Who cares whatever anyone else thinks or types. It's your car, build it your way. The next guy will change whatever he wants to change it to his way anyway.

                      After 50 years being separated from the car it belongs to, the original broadcast sheet is reunited to its car, thanks to Richard, owner of Charger 500 #1 for giving it to Galen Govier to hopefully reunite the sheet with the owner of #5, mine.. That was done many many years ago. The Mopar paths finally crossed. I was able to connect the broadcast sheet of #1, which was found in my 500, to owner #1. Thanks to Galen and Diane for their safeguarding of the document and giving it back to me. Turns out Galen had a gig near me and came over for some dinner with the family and some Mopar chatting, along with my broadcast sheet..

                      Cool picture of broadcast sheet to 110614, #5 found in 110610, #1.

                      Think I have found who is going to do my 500. Would love Brian, but man that is a long way from home or Hodges. Will go with a firm here locally that did my friend's Superbird.. So soon things will start a'happenin'.

                        Page 106 of the mid 1990s book "Supercars - Story of the Plymouth Superbird and Dodge Daytona", interviewed the guys that were there.
                        Frank Wylie, Dodge PR manager, said one car was stolen when Hot Rod had it for testing, recovered stripped in Watts, CA and shipped to Nichels for converson to become DC-93, more commonly known as the #88 Engineering Daytona. Wonder what number it was? Or were more than 6 PR 500s built?
                        Also, I can attest there was no traces of any red paint on the car, only B5.
