This car was recently bought to be restored as fast fun driver.  It runs well and is undergoing numerous minor repairs preparatory to painting.

Worst Mopar Experience:
1974 I dozed off going down I-65 at about 70 mph in the first 1970 Dart. I sideswiped a guardrail and tore up the driver’s side of the car. The front tire went flat, but I changed the tire and kept on going.

Winnings/Trophies:
None, except 35 years of fun driving all my Mopars.
