Any old Mopar guys out there?

The first new car I had was a silver 1968 Plymouth Road Runner 383 four speed coupe. Paid $2888.00 total out the door. Tax, tags everything. I did some preformance upgrades to it and would street race on Woodward Av.
Next was a 1972 Plymouth Satellite Sebring Plus. 400 four barrel automatic. I think that one cost me $3200 or so. Ended up also with a Dodge van during the hippie conversion van rage. Then there was a BIG gap untill about 1992 when I bought a 1969 Plymouth Road Runner, 440 auto, surgrip, headers, Holley carb. Black on black. It came with a spare 383. About 2 years later I ran into a 1937 Plymouth P3 Business coupe. Bone stock in very good shape. Had 90k miles on it and needed a new clutch. Well, one thing led to another and I ended up doing a 5 year frame off on it.
They are all gone now but not forgotten. God, I wish I had them back.
Greg

Been there done that and I'd have to have about a 10 car garage attached to my 1100 sq ft town house.

Only owned one. It was a 1965 Dodge Coronet 500. 383 4 barrell with the torque flite transmission. Bought it brand new and it was right around $2650 delivered, tax, title, the works. Boy those were the days. Are you still in the Detroit area? Been to the Woodward Cruise? I haven't attended the past two years but prior to that it was a yearly event. Maybe again next summer if we're in town.
Maybe I miss spoke. Does my 05 PT qualify? It's a 5 speed, convertible. Things had to slow down a bit (old age).

Had a 68 Plymouth Fury III in High School. 2 door sedan, silver with a black vinyl top and fender spats. Not a lot for go power with only a 318, 2bbl but it's a car I'll remember for many years. Particulary that roomy back seat. Dad has a 68 Dodge Monaco, 2 door with 440, bronze with black vinyl room and magnum 500 wheels. Beautiful car.

At least you had your priorities correct. You can always live in a garage, but it is hard to put a car in your house!

We just got back from cruisin the coast. It seems mopars are in the miniority. Seems to be a 15 to 1 on gm/mopar and a 6 to 1 on ford/mopar. The only car compamy that had less was AMC. If you are a car nut I highly reccomend cruisin the coast.

technically the AMC is mopar
dont be concerned about the low quantity of mopars
think of mopars as rembrandts and other brands as poloroids

Yikes I am old enough to remember seeing Little Red Wagon in Hot Rod That was an incredible time for a car crazy kid. I had a 70 Coronet 2 dr hardtop, no screamer with the 318 but it sure looked good. Root beer paint with beige interior. Really should have kept it but got bored.
