    sweet looking cars guys.

    I don't know why, but for some reason the nose of a 71/72 RR/saty with the stripe of a 73/74 RR would be perfect to me.

      Theres room for more!! ;) I always loved the front end of the 71-72 myself, they look very intimidating for sure.. Them and the 71-73 Chargers.. The newer styled Mopars but great looking none the less.

      Your sons 73 Project looks like a good one! I imagine hes wishing it already done, looks like its coming along good. but it takes time and patience all worth it in the end, Good luck to him..

        You have no idea how hard I am laughing right now. For that, I thank you my friend. I am actually curious as to what you are using for the racks. I just picked up two more medium saltwater poles for catfish and it's about time I get organized......

        They are racks that were sold in wallyworld and others for around 10 bucks but i would not recomend them for larger heavy rods the styrofoam inside the holder ain't strong enough to hold up and the rods fall out,mine have been unused for so long they may have roots . I'm gonna make my own rod rack one of these days like i used to have before these.Glad i could make ya laugh.

        Top End Rebuild

        Well, I tore out the pieced\sliced\butchered\original exhaust system out with the orig hp mani's. Found that the original owner had gone back and forth between the mani's and headers a couple times.

        [​IMG]

        I bought a set of Schumaker Tri-y's and had the powder coated black.

        [​IMG]

        Freshened up a set of 516 closed chambered heads with 2.14 intake and 1.81 with pocket port. And a fresh coat of paint.

        [​IMG]

        Clear coated my intake manifold.

        [​IMG]

        Cut Taylor Made wires to fit.

        [​IMG]

        Put a little protection in the spots that needed it. Starter\battery cable and spark plug wires.

        [​IMG]

        Then get her running!

        [​IMG]

        Now to get these in place....

        2.5 inch exhaust from Summit with x pipe.

          little bit of rust in rears and a bit on the lower fronts, but otherwise in remarkable shape....its in 10X's better shape than the 71 RR that I had restored in the late 80's....Still wish I had that one though....
