Dragin mopars > either into the shop, or at the Track.

Had a 68 Fury V I P back in the 80's
drove it daily to Trade school.
Was thinking > What happened to that car ???
can't remember > 62yrs old> maybe later..lol
Mostly on the "A" body site, "B" and Truck.
Right now, upside down on a e body project> moving the leafs in
ready for a break

My friend Carey has a nice 67 Fury. going to see him soon to help get it back on the road. He is in Florida > I'm in Tennessee
want to take a few wheels / tires to trial fit
come here to people that know...
this site has a BadAZZ racers section... Cool

Thanks everyone, I like them all > mopars
was asked about one of my Mis-fits a 68 Satellite (CTD)....lol
when running a Trans brake , that's what it did>> Break parts... got old quick.
thinking was take the 540 out, put in a lighter car > 72 Dart Swinger. make it dual purpose > 518 / dana 3.73
Satellite sat in the barn, eng. less. ( 540 was set back 12")

Tired of moving a spare Cummins engine, in the shop ,got the yard stick out,> looked like it would fit...

Why not---"Havin Fun"

36* today-Brrr, cold metal.. it can wait.. might as well spill the beans about the other mis-fits.
The Satellite's little sister, even tho she is white, is no virgin to the Drag strip.
She's my little mobile dyno...lol
breaking in the 449 small block for the Cuda.

soon the Dart will get its own heart back- took it out, just to check how things were doing 446 W-2
The Rampage being a little guy, keeps getting pushed back into the corner, presently awaiting "Tin work"
440.
Haven't posted pics of the 72 Swinger, she still half naked, waiting on better weather to paint.

Since the Rampage sits so low, Big Brother said, he would carry him to the track.
73 Car Hauler - the seller told me, has no rust, My mistake for looking at it in the rain. long run made it a better ride.
was installing a fresh 440 /518/4.10 til gas went to $4.00

so decided to go CTD 5-speed 3.07 gears.
might as well use a Diesel firewall, while replacing the fiber glass floors.
like the green dart> waiting paint
This year is the "Year of paint" ...lol

going to be digging in deep soon on a 67 Fury
wheels tires, gear, plus finish hooking up a fresh built eng/trans.

The Rampage has been more of a puzzle, than a Chess game.
Trying to get all parts to share the same space, plus room for a driver..lol

Think it looks angry Cause I'm not working on it and engine painted orange (motivation) for like a blood hound- wrapped in a set of modified Chevy Headers
