1972 satellite Sebring plus road runner clone that had slapstick and bucket seats, 69 Dodge cornet RT clone and actually I had for a while a 1977 fury that went from C body to b body so actually 3 B body’s,

I also had another C body (but Kinda almost like a B body cause it was the first year unibody construction) a 1974 Dodge Monaco cop car with a 440 for around a month like 10 of us in the neighborhood did because an auto lot had a ton of them for sale in 3-500$ range, (it was like the blues Brothers movie in my neighborhood)

they all were pretty beat but Basically just the front end and suspensions were worn they didn’t last very long tearing up the streets, drag racin down in the flats and flying over the railroad tracks of Cleveland but they were fun,

I sold the power train for more than I paid for the whole car,

Can we all just agree the first blues brothers movie was actually pretty decent?

Re: The Dodge mentality...............beware mopeders!

NIce, would have been pretty cool to be around back when mopars were cheap to get 2nd hand. Need 10k now to get a decent 68-70 B body even a low trim one like a satellite.

Re: The Dodge mentality...............beware mopeders!

C body’s and A body’s are still relatively reasonable,

let me tell you a 383 ci fury with a sure grip and a 727 torqueflite was highly modifiable and Being a full frame car was almost like a truck,

If I wasn’t broke the past few years for $5000 I would be in a C body or A body duster or dart in a heartbeat many in my area I could get for that, matching numbers don’t mean nothing to me on those cars,

E body’s X block T/A’s, B body 6 pack, hemi wing cars and other specially hemi cars ya matching numbers cars is what you want,

I was in all Mopar cars most times growing up,

None my friends, my brothers friends, cousins and uncles and my aunt, pretty much nobody owned a gm or Chevy including a hemi Daytona and a six pack challenger TA,

Believe it or not I liked the six pack challenger TA more than the hemi Daytona only because the Daytona was almost impossible to park because it was way too long,

The cops saw the wing a mile away and would pull you over for almost nothing just to see what you were running, showing your license and all the other bullcrap making you late for work, and it was like a taxi cab on the inside!

I mean so cool on the outside but the inside a wing car was so plain Jane it wasn’t funny,

My worst mopar experience when the retiree next-door died and his cross ram 1963 maybe it was a 1964 Chrysler with a 413 wedge motor just rotted away for almost 10 years,

There was no one there, no one could find the title, I could’ve got that car for free but he died in his 70s suddenly with no relatives and the city of Cleveland towed his car away to the junkyard and put the house for sale on auction due to back taxes,

With only 9000 original miles on it it was a perfect car it held its solid white color for 8 years until rust showed up on it!

His spare keys were hanging on his grapevine rack in back of garage, my father and I started the car every week for like five years and moved it back-and-forth in the driveway,

Even though I was only 13-14 years old it gave me driving experience, The car was ordered with 390Hp 413 and he had it ordered with low ratio rear end, if I would’ve just put the throttle to the floor I would’ve blasted through the garage and in the garage behind it, then down the driveway of the house into the next street into the next driveway into the garage through the garage into the next driveway into the next garage, it would’ve been epic!

Re: The Dodge mentality...............beware mopeders!

Should have "appropriated" it, list the plates and applied for an abandoned title in 7 yrs or so. It's the way of the world though, all the stuff we love is junk to newer gennertion's.

Re: The Dodge mentality...............beware mopeders!

This turned into a nice discussion about Chrysler vehicles. Ive always admired most of them.

Re: The Dodge mentality...............beware mopeders!

Chryslers had the drive trains down for sure, but the interiors not so much on the cheaper cars. Window crank handles, tinny sounding, hollow doors when shutting,

heater controls, just not good quality in the ones I rode in.

Dad owned a big fancy boat of a Plymouth, about 1979 or so, and they had improved quite a bit on those interiors, but then THAT wasn't a low-ball car either.

Police pursuit Plymouth’s in the late 70s were the fastest American made production cars at that time with top speeds like 133 mph

Throughout the years it was hard to out run the Dodge/Plymouth police cars

When I was a young driver, Cleveland’s force had lime green Fords that were very slow and easy to see from a distance that saved us all from so many tickets!

Jackson,OH did that green thing with the big 69/70 Fords. We called one of them the `green Weinee'. You're right about easy ID...……...LOL!
