Well a decade and one big restoration later the car is alive and running again. Can’t believe I was 19 and on page number 2 of this thread... lol
I posted this on my build thread but figured I would add it here too; This is the only pic I have of my first car, a 1973 Charger SE Super Blue, black vinyl top and blue interior with buckets and center console. It came originally with a 400 and 727 but, a PO installed a ‘69 440HP motor in it. I paid $800.00 for it back in 1990. I added an 8 3/4 from a cuda and 4.10’s. The car was ziebarted early on and had very little rust; the usual in the lower driver’s quarter and a small spot on the top of the passenger’s fender. I didn’t like the Super Blue paint at the time so, I stripped it with aircraft paint stripper and sprayed it with black primer. I was way ahead of the curve on painting cars flat black . I had a lot of fun with that car as a dumb teenager! I can remember the day this photo was taken. I left my car at my friends house after a long night of drinking and got a ride home from another friend. I had to work early the next day. A bunch of us had plans to drive up to the speedway in New Hampshire later that same day to run the 1/4 mile track. I was to meet my friends up thereafter work. My buddy had a ‘70-something Firebird with a built 396, and a couple of others had ricers, Supra and Nissan Z. If you look closely at the pic, you can see a quart of oil on the hood, passenger’s side, leaning against the windshield. My buddy left it there for me in case I needed to top off before the ride up to New Hampshire (from Massachusetts). Another fun fact about this is my buddy lived (where this pic was taken) a few houses down from the guy I purchased this car from. My grandmother also lives (to this day) about a half mile down on this same street. I wish I knew then what I know now. This was way before the internet and info on these 3rd generation Chargers was scarce. I definitely would have kept this car. I still have the engine and tranny.
Have you ever seen the movie "Out Cold" 2001? There's a 1973 Dodge Charger SE in it. Your pic of your Charger reminded me of it. Although in the movie they have a snow plow attached to it lol. I don't think they show it being in use during the movie, it was awhile ago since I seen it. Here's a pic.
Holy crap!! looks identical except for the wheels (and plow). I never saw that movie. Thanks for posting!
No problem. Here's a short clip from the movie.
Newly acquired '71 with elephant mill.
Love this car.....
So many good looking B Bodies on this thread. Here's my contribution. This is my 72 Satellite Seabring. (The Banana) Its going under a full resto-mod. I just installed a new create 408 Stroker engine, rebuilt the 904, painted under the hood and a ton of other work. Just got her on the road after months of work. You can follow my build thread here. https://www.forbbodiesonly.com/mopa...-project-thread-72-satellite-seabring.179635/ Body and paint will be coming soon.
My work in progress! Couldn't hold it any longer so had to take it out in the snow for some quick pic
Perfect stance! Care to share your tire and wheel size including backspacing?

Dat girl has got a phat ass!
My dad's '73 Roadrunner 340 that he had back in the early '80s: Really want that car...
Wow. I grew up in Mass too and my first car was a 73 Charger SE. Blue with white vinyl top, buckets, and slap stick console. She was only a 318 car but I worked it all over our winding backroads! Your comment about the oil left on the hood by a buddy got me all sentimental. I used to leave my car parked at the local McDonald's whenever I was out bombing around with a larger group. One cold winter night, they dropped me off at my car and there was a note on the steering wheel. Another buddy who's car had broken down had sought refuge from the cold in my car for a bit. He left a couple cigarettes in the ash tray, rewound my Pink Floyd cassette tape, and wrote down which route he was walking home in case I got back in time to find him and give him a ride lol. He's gone now...but it is a nice memory.
Awesome cars, guys! A lot of inspirational stuff on here. I'm getting pretty fired up for the spring and the return of car shows. Here's a couple recent shots of my GTX...Redid the interior 2 years ago, suspension upgrades last year, 440 a few years back, etc. 550hp/570tq. Can't wait for summer...
Nice ride NBC-Steve, I like the old NAVY E-DIV's SIMPSON TOO!! OLE RELIABLE FOR SURE!!! EM2/SS 1982-88
