    Spike, I really like the Torque Thrusts on it. IMO, they're like Magnum 500's, they look good on anything.

    Thanks! That show was not long after I got it and right after I retired.

    Dang! Those are both great looking cars. Today I own a 68 but I learned to drive in a 67 Fury III 4 door sedan like your turquoise car. It was my mom's car, of course, and by today's standards it was huge, but it had the 383 4bbl and automatic so lots of power and easy to drive. Dad ordered it with the AM/FM stereo, cruise control, AC and disc brakes. All these years later I sure wish I had kept the AM/FM stereo to put in my Sport Fury, but I think we retired it in about 1977 and who knew? Congratulations on your winning pair and thanks for sharing them with us!
    :welcome: :thumbsup:

    Hanging in there I guess. I pretty much go to work and go home. I haven't gotten a lot of progress done on the New Yorker I sold to my cousin, so I feel I haven't had much to contribute here since I left the body shop. I have been working at an Engineering place that builds cell towers for the most part. They got me in the door doing builders, then had me painting towers, then of all things, building branches for fake trees/monopoles. Once they found out I had a way for fixing things I've been doing that full time ever since. I have no place to work on my own projects yet, so I've still just been saving for a building, which is hard to get ahead that far, because I pretty well spend my income from my farm rent for things I can write off to avoid getting hit as hard with taxes. For 2017 among other smaller things I bought a fully hydraulic blade that weighs over a ton and last fall I bought a mower for the bigger tractors and a trailer to get farm related things home...

    This was my dad's '68 Monaco that was almost my 1st car until I fed the neighbor's cattle for a summer in trade for my red '68 300 that I got when I was 13.

    This was a parts 4dr sdn Monaco that donated the 383 for my '69 Road Runner that was 1 of 5 Mopars to drive which I had when I was in school. Also my pre German Shepherd days, Springer and my pre driver's licence days, horse... :)

    This was my experience with how you have no control with the brakes locked when I was 14. I crested a hill the night prior and when I saw water I tried to slow down, which the brakes on the 300 have zero feel on slime. When it kept heading for the ditch and I thought I was going swimming, I let off the brake and was going to shut it off. Because I was sliding at about a 45 degree angle, the wheels were already cranked, so as soon as let off the brake it corrected. One of several lucky outcomes I had growing up.
