We never raced at the Shelton strip, but back in the late '60s our car club raced quite often at Bremerton Raceway.
Even raced at a AHRA national meet at Arlington, WA, but mostly Bremerton and S.I.R.
Sure was a lot of fun back then.

A couple of the mopars I have owned :
A 63 Dodge 426 raced AHRA
A 64 Plymouth max wedge raced in NHRA and held the ASA national record for a long time and won class at the SportsNationals.
But the most fun I had was driving my partners 70 Duster 340 superstocker. Won the Fallnationals two years in a row. That car was a kick.
I also owned a new 69 Roadrunner 440 6pac to drive on the road. Couldn't afford to buy gas for that thing today. Now I drive a 38ft motorhome!?

My '70 340 'Cuda cost me $3800 brand new. I ordered it with 4-speed, power brakes, rally instrument cluster, hockey stripes and positraction. Here is a link to my excitement when discovering it on an auto hauler

Dodge wasn't going to make another stepside, so I made my own.

Mine got totaled back in 1972 - I was stationed in North Carolina and left the car there when I came home to California to get married. When we got back to NC I found out a "friend" had borrowed it one day and either he backed it into a pole or (as he explained) someone rear-ended him. The damage was the center of the rear bumper was pushed about 3 feet toward the back seat. I never could figure out how a rear-ender could make damage that looked like the car was backed into a pole at about 40 mph...

Anyway, he paid me $600 for the car and then blew up the engine by running it without oil. I sure wish I still had it!

My '64 was the same way - I don't know what Dodge did to the engine but it was pretty good getting up to 20 mpg while doing over 100 mph!

My son bought a 2009 Challenger RT and you can add a zero to see about what he paid! He got the 5.7L Hemi, 6-speed manual tranny, 20-inch wheels, etc. It's his baby, and a gift to himself when we got back from Iraq - it's amazing how much money you can save when you're in a war zone, and your pay is tax-free!

the only mopar we ever had was a race car. we had a 360 and a 440 engine for it. the driver didn't like the 440 so we took it out and put in the smaller engine and first time out we broke the track record. The guy who had the previous record came over and congratulated us, he said now the crowd will hate us instead of him. And he was right. And as far as I know we still have the fast time record for that track, we set it in the 70's and they have since closed down that track, so we still are the record holders
