Listed above are the cars that I have owned or presently own. As you can see, I've owned 2 Plymouths and 2 Dodges but no Chryslers yet. But when I do get a Chrysler it will probably be a 300 series. Anyway, back to the good stuff, each link above will take you to thumbnails of each car and a short description of what I went through with each one. I hope that you enjoy what I have to show off. Oh, and by the way, I'm only 18 ;-)
1969 Plymouth Barracuda
1973 Plymouth CUDA
This is my 1973 Plymouth Barracuda. I bought this car when I was only 15 years old making it my very first car. I don't know what I was thinking when I bought it. It was just a huge rust bucket that needed everything...but....there is just something about a 340 with a pistol grip 4 spd that can really get a guy going. I spent about a year on this one but never got it completely finished. It was a very nice daily driver. The 340 was awesome in the car. I had the nice 8 3/4 rear with 3:23 gears. It was just a great car but...I wanted more. Looking for some parts one day in the junkyard I came across a 1971 Challenger with a 383 and a 4 spd. I saw this a great opportunity for my car so I rebuilt the engine and did the swap. That car would tear up anything after I put that 383 in there. It was a great car but still needed a lot of work and just cost too much money to maintain. I sold the car out at Carlisle to a guy from Georgia. I hope he is having as much fun with it as I did.
This is the car that I
bought after I sold my 1973 Barracuda. I know you are probably thinking that
this is a hell of a downgrade but it was a really nice car and my friend is
still driving it to this date. My 1988 Dodge Daytona Shelby Z was equipped with
the Turbo I engine and an automatic transmission. This car had every option
available for its model and year. That is what made it so cool. I didn't get to
tinker much with the car. I just drove it around and beat on it a little bit. I
know the hood says TURBO INTERCOOLED but it isn't I just liked the stickers. It
was sort of intercooled though. I put an inline water cooler for the turbo to
cut down on the heat of the water that went into the turbo. I did this in hopes
that it would prolong the life of the turbo since the car did have about 160,000
miles. The car now has more miles than that and is still running good. I hope my
friend Gary is taking good care of it.
1992 Dodge Stealth R/T
This is my other pride and joy, my 1992 Dodge Stealth R/T. I always said when I was a little kid when the Stealth first came out that I would someday have one and now I do. This car is equipped with the normally aspirated 3.0L DOHC V6 and a 5 spd transmission. This car has all the options that you could get except for the Turbos and the sunroof which only came on the Turbo models. This car is definitely quick and I plan on taking it out to the track soon to see what she will run. And on top of being fast she is definitely a looker. I plan to keep this as my daily driver while my 1969 Barracuda is getting worked on or is in storage.
