i wish i could do up a 69 superbee or a 69 charger but i know that will never come.
my daughter loves my old y88 but most of all she loved my redbird and wanted that to be her first car. my 2 year old thinks almost every old car is a trans am but he infact knows the 2nd gen t/a's when he see's them. my 5 year old wants a 78-81 z28 he likes the front better in his own words. I know of a guy who has a 80 or 81 z28 for like $200 i have thought about buying it to have laying around for him when that time comes but hey he's only 5 and has 10.5 years to worry about it yet. My 2 year old did tell me that my 85 cutlass is his though.

you know somethin i know hes only 5 but if you can afford it and the car is lagit and not rusted to no return id buy it. i remmeber going down into my basement into out tiny old garage that you could bearly open the doors to get into the car just so i could sit in it and play with all the knobs and the secret yellow button in the glove box that made missles fire out of the front of the car. he would be stoked and sit in it all the time. i loved havin that car in the garage and i couldn't wait to the day when we pulled it out and i fired her up for the first time. what i could wait for was the amount of money i was going to be putting into it. id tell hiim to start saving his birthday money

i didnt think i suggested parting it out. I would always like to see them restored rather then parted out.

Mopars are a lot more expensive aren't they? Besides, my dad would never let me have his car, an all original 1970 Dodge Charger, original engine, original interior, only 47,000 miles... besides over the summer when I wanted a classic of my own this is what we found for the good price so this is what I got. Im glad I have it too, no regrets.

well thats good you have a very sweet car and i couldn't agree with you more about mopars being so bloody expensive to restore. i never understood why my thought was purely becasue they had a hemi motor and everyone wants one of those i dont car who you are. id love to have an old hemi motor those were the balls
