Part of my past history

I was pulling into a car show today at Dave Wheeler's Garage (you may remember Dave as the owner of a 440-6bbl Sport Fury GT "Furyus") and followed this Chrysler in:

I asked the owner about the history. He said that a guy from Ilderton (Ontario) imported it from the USA in 1997 and not long after that his grandfather bought it. Well I filled in some details for him. It was ME that imported the car in 1997 for my dad. I had not seen the car since he sold it, I think in the late 1990's.

I bought it at the Mopar Nats in 1997. At the time the car had around 14,000 miles on it (as I recall). I think the price then was around $4,000 but as that was 25 years ago I am far from sure.

It was terrific to see the car again. That's my "new" (1967) Coronet R/T in the background.

Not a lot of C bodies. Just this one, and the Newport below
