    Medina turned 50 on Nov. 16. For her half-century b-day, I bought her a locking NOS cap (P/N 3583561) from @marty mopar. Here she is, two weeks before her big day, celebrating with friends and family (pic courtesy @71Polara383).

    Out of curiosity, what does that year locking cap currently cost?
    Wish I could find one for my challenger. They are 600 bucks plus.

    Depending on how "original" youd like to go, I got a locking one for my 68 Dart from pep boys, it was Stant brand. I found years ago one for my 70 charger on ebay. I had to modify the cap on the car a little bit to get it to work, but with the cap closed you cant tell. Stant has one for a 74 challenger p/n 10571. But idk if it will work for earlier years. They do list the same part number for a 71 charger, and I believe at that time there were a lot of interchangeable parts between the B bodies and E bodies at that time.

    Indeed, time flies. Thanks again to @polara71 for alerting me to DH23T1F143293, to @71Polara383 for helping me pick her up, and to @'69FuryIIIConvertible for braving the snow and inspecting this Monaco in Medina, NY during a (very cold) lull in Great Lakes storms, so that I could make up my mind and swoop in right between a snow storm and an ice storm and buy her. Wyatt and I hightailed it out of town right before the ice!

    And here she is right before I paid for her and Wyatt drove off with her on February 5, 2019. A few hours later, the place was covered with heavy ice.

    With a vehicle that looks that good even with the bumble-bee stripe, he can show it off every day and it will never bore me!

    The snow was melting that day (ten days after Nick inspected the car) and you can see some wet/muddy spots on the photo I took of Wyatt and the Monaco at Culvert Road under the Erie Canal. So, I can't completely absolve myself (if memory serves, I drove to the Culvert and Wyatt drove back to the seller's house before loading the car -- so if either of us is to blame, it would be me) but the mud seems dry and so the evidence suggests that someone else is indeed to blame for the dirt :)
