Can you add me to list?

I owned a 1970 Dodge Super Bee. Only had a 383, but was wicked-fast.
Sold it before I left for Basic Training.
Buyer hit a train with it 1 week after the purchace. Total loss.

Been there a few times during my military career....bought a new 78 280Z Datsun when I returned from Italy from a dealership up on hillside in Jamaica Queens named Nemet Auto. Picked it up, drove over the veranzo bridge and hit Jersey headed east to next duty station.....as fast as I could.

I spent maybe 2 hours in NYC..... Too long for me. Been back maybe a dozen times for work related travel etc and can’t wait to leave each time. Not a favorite place.

Hope ya escape when ya can !

Stay safe is what I tell everyone here at FR....or try to. Crazy World where little is safe these days....:o)

Good Lord I’ve died and gone to MOPAR heaven.

True Mopar story,

On my way home from the strip, 50 mile trip. No fan on the water pump, uncapped headers. Country two lane, late at night, just bang it to a buck and coast at idle for a few miles to let the thing cool down. Way to much work to detune for the ride home.

Popped a hill and there is a Florida State Trooper watering the weeds on the road side. I’m coasting at maybe 80 in a 55
universal speed limit zone.

I, to this day, think he trapped his pecker in the zipper when my pit helper and close friend yelled from the back
no seat, “of f that HIT IT!”

I dropped it into third, and hit the dimmer switch. The floor dimmer switch would kill all the lights and bring on a cyclops in the center grill. It’s a techy thing.(grin)

Ran 15 miles wide open, slid sideways into a subdivision, spun the car around, and pulled up to the stop sign with the lights on 5 seconds before the trooper went roaring by looking for some dang thing.

Car was a 71 340 Duster, stripped, caged, built. M&H Racemasters, Dana rear, classic gasser straight front axle.

It went through many iterations over the years and I put an honest 130k on the car before I gave it up.
