I don't know exactly how I feel about that video. True, a valid point but that little 67 Dart could be saved and the value 67-69 Darts are really rising. Just my opinion.
Remember, Tony is the same guy that drilled hundreds of holes in another '67 dart to make it as light as possible to go racing with a slant 6. He's nuts but I love it
I have enjoyed his (recently discovered to me) videos.
I haven't watched the video completely but it is an already rusty Dart which needs full quarters. So that car has for sure seen a lot of driving in salt in the past. I wouldn't worry to continue to use it that way. You can still restore it later if you really want to IMHO Carsten
Snow.... Ick! I watched that video earlier today. I like a lot of what he puts out. I like the theme of just getting an old car running and reasonably safe and enjoying it. Snow drifting is several steps past "Rain drifting" that I've done out West for years. Slippery road conditions do make it easier for low powered cars to get sideways and have fun.
Reminds me growing up in Pa. Lots of snow and salt covered muscle cars. I drove my 340 4 speed Duster everyday in that crap.4 years old and rust holes in the fenders,floors and quarters. My brother drove a 68 Coronet R/T with tire chains on his chrome slotted wheels. My friend Lenny,his winter car was a 72 340 Demon. He loved snowy covered roads doing donuts and power slides. They were just cars back then.
I agree with him, but... it's a Dart GT. I just wouldn't be able to help myself. I would HAVE to restore it. Don't get me wrong; I would drive the heck out of it after the rebuild... just not on salty, sloppy roads.
How very true. When I was first married our only car was a 71 V code GTX, year round in Iowa. Lol, only pics I have of it shows snow tires on it.
He should at least clean off the back window so he can see!
Naw, you leave the snow on the roof and rear so as the car warms up the whole sheet of snow comes off in one piece. Fun for you but not for the guy behind you !
UT has a lot of knowledge on Mopars, but he spouts a lot of nonsense also. I didn't watch the video above because I've seen enough of him. He had one where he was changing carbs by the side of the road on some guys pristine Charger, and he was so sloppy I'm surprised he didn't burn it to the ground. We drove them in the snow and salt cause we had to, not because it was good. I drove mine as a daily driver for about 4 years in Ohio, then it took me 2 years to fix the rust.
that’s the first thing I noticed. It takes 2 seconds to brush the snow off the back window, pure laziness.
saw a 68 Chevelle SS at home depot.......original paint, small rust holes in all the usual places.......I liked it!
Nothing wrong with rat muscle. I like beat up original cars personally. I am slamming a 383 and putting the front grill and bumper back on and driving this next summer.
The real problem is the cost of redoing the car, nevermind a true restoration. This leaves most people with. Have fun with what ya got and do with it as you please. OR Spend everything on a mint body and have no money left over to do shit. Do you enjoy the car or not? How you get to enjoy that car is often limited to the wallets thickness. Must the car be restored in order to drive it? If it does, I have a donation barrel in my back yard that is empty and I’ll take what ever you give. But I’m driving it until the day I reach the resto shops price tag. Which brings up another point? Actually several. Is the price of a resto going to increase the cars value to the point of you getting your money back? Is a Duster worth restoring? A triple black HEMI 4spd ‘70 Cuda is I’m sure. Come sale time, I’m sure you’ll make money on it. How well does that work for a old commmon made by the millions A body people mover grocery getter car now? It’s a hobby with many avenues to take that is often limited by the wallet and ones desire to do with what they want with there car there way. It’s a shame the resto Nazi’s are ruining the run factor of just simply owning a old car you just get running and want to drive around and show up at a gathering with. This turns off more people than you think from even getting an old car. One that could have been saved or at the very least, put on life support rather than just sitting and rusting away somewhere. And one less car Car hobbyist in the crew. This just simply never enough of us no matter how you slice it.
Agree 100%. The ratty muscle car keeps you an "eternal teenager". There's nothing wrong with having nice cars too.
Really want a 340 a body for a driver one of these days because the charger will be too radical for the street. I'd prefer something like that that, I wouldn't have to worry about if it got a shopping cart slammed into it or something.
I have two cars, one a 66 Barracuda that isn’t perfect but is drivable everyday, my 74 Roadrunner is in the garage as I slowly repair the firewall. So what I’m giving is an excuse to give your wife about why you NEED two classic Mopars, one to fix one to drive.
^^^^^Yep, My wife feels the same. Always gotta have a project.I tell her it keeps me out of bars and chasin' women. I like my old hoopty, My I don't give a crap ride.
