    My first car circa 1985. A mighty 1968 Chrysler Imperial, factory 440 with Holley 4 barrel carb. I was rockin' original patina and the rat-look way before they were cool. Gone but not forgotten!

    Here is a Mopar from the very earliest of days:
    1931 Plymouth PA business coupe.
    I took 3 years to assemble this car from about a 100 boxes of parts.
    The accelerator pump had to be made, they don't exist any more. P1010013 (2).JPG P1010014 (2).JPG P1010015 (2).JPG P1010016 (2).JPG P1010017.JPG P1010018.JPG P1010012 (2).JPG

    Very nice looks real clean. I'd like to see more of Molly also. Is there a 225 slant six in there?

    For 1961-62 Lancers

    The Lancer used the slant-6 engine. The base engine was the 170 cu in (2.8 l) unit, rated at 101 bhp (75 kW). The optional power package consisted of the larger 225 cu in (3.7 l) engine, rated at 145 bhp (108 kW). After the start of the 1961 model year, a die-cast aluminum version of the 225 engine block was made available. The aluminum 225 weighed 45 pounds (20 kg) less than the iron 170 and 80 pounds (36 kg) less than the iron 225. Any of the available engines could be equipped at the dealer with Chrysler's Hyper Pak parts kit for a significant power upgrade: the 170 Hyper Pak's published output was 148 bhp (110 kW), while the 225 Hyper Pak's was 196 bhp (146 kW). The Hyper-Pak shaved more than four seconds off the 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) time versus the standard 225, and was over a second quicker and seven miles per hour faster in the quarter mile.[2] With the Hyper Pak, a 225 Lancer could go from 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 8.6 seconds and turn in a standing quarter mile time of 16.4 seconds.[3] 1962 cars had the engine and transmission moved for a flatter front floor.[4]

    Transmission options were a Chrysler-built A903 three-speed manual with the shifter on the floor in 1961 and on the steering column in 1962, or a pushbutton-operated A904 Torqueflite three-speed automatic.

    OK, I'll give you that. Much Budweiser consumption last night and I don't think my damn readers are strong enough anymore.

    Still looked funny IMO...

    I shall remove...

    Here's my 1969 Road Runner convertible. I owned it for 12 years, then started getting more worried about driving it because Miami has gotten so full of major douchebags and shitty drivers. After having it sit in the garage for months at a time, I sold it on for a ridiculous amount of money which financed a re-do of the garage into an audio/brewing nirvana.

    Bought this new in 1985. I thought it was a great car, considering the competition at the time.

    I'm sure it blew the doors off a few wheezy F-bodies in its day.

    And did a very respectable job trouncing a few of the European sedans.
