Hi y'all, new here and long-time Mopar fan here. My first car was a 1970 Charger 500 that I bought in April 1986 for $1,800. Back then, I never would've been caught dead in this (even though I've always been a wagon fan). It's definitely a favorite, with lots of honks and thumbs up every time I drive. I think it reminds everyone of being a kid.
I scoped this car out last March and lo and behold it was still for sale in May so I bought a one way plane ticket from Texas to New York and then drove her all the way home to Lockhart (mid-way thru I stopped and picked up my son at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, IN). It's got a 383 2bbl and she got about 19 mpg from Long Island to home. As far as I know it spent all it's life in NY and CT so it's got some rust, but as evidenced by the lengthy trip home, it's very driveable and pretty much everything works including the electric rear window.
It wasn't my intent to make that Range Rover look so bad...
