    I bought her 34 years ago when I was 19. Still hope to restore her someday.

    Something special is happening in my hometown - cruise night is back. We have a street named Noland Road that was "the place" to cruise when I was a teenager and now its back. It was so popular in the day that Hot Rod magazine listed it as one the top 10 cruise strips across the country. Think American Graffiti or maybe even Dazed and Confused. With gas prices so low older dudes are pulling their street rods out and cruising again. So cool. Last night there was nearly 1,000 cars. I haven't seen it like that since 1985. What is so strange is that when I was young the popo used to harass us nonstop but now we're the old farts and the cops are the age of our kids! I need to get my Cragar SS mags back on the ponycar and make sure the Supertuner is jamming.

    Now that's a nice truck - not big on the exhaust but I love everything else. I'm guessing the bed has wood floor?

    The bed should have wood and the exhaust is factory.

    Had a check engine light come on on my 2017 Mustang GT with 25k miles, and I couldn't have been any happier!

    For the last 2 years, or about 15k miles ago, I could just tell the car wasn't driving right. I kept calling it "slack in the line." Felt like I was towing a trailer sometimes. Inconsistent speeds. Felt like driving through puddles of water while doing 60mph. Or like it kept wanting to push me while coming to a stop. Or bucking a little while getting going again.

    Luckly, someone else said they had the same problem, and got a few cylinder misfire codes. Turned out that it was the intake manifold and the actuators that control the airflow into the engine. The plastic rods become stripped or broken.

    Took to the Ford dealer, and the found that same issue. Unfortunately, the parts are on backorder with no ETA. But at least they know about it, and it's covered under warranty. And will hopefully soon be able to enjoy driving my car again. For the last two years, I've been telling them the issue with them coming back saying that they've seen nothing.

    Ha. Sorry. Had to tell someone that would somewhat understand my frustration.

    Luckly you got in in time for warranty. I had a problem with my Explorer and just missed it and had to replace an oil line on a turbo for $2000.00, the part was around $20.00 and rest was labor.

    Just installed my FST fuel filter. I made the bracket and braided stainless steel lines and had the bracket chromed. After 15 minutes of running the engine at 6.5 psi fuel pressure no leaks.

    2018 Charger Hellcat. Its a ball to drive and I go thru a pair of rear tires in less than 3000 miles. Who cares about the price of 2 tires? They are cheaper than the boatwell was when I sold the boat last year.

    I'll give a lot of props to Dodge/Fiat for making their Chargers and Challengers better every year and sticking with the same general look and not changing it up every few years.

    Definitely a formula that works. They keep threatening to revamp the Challenger, but that will only end badly. Just keep pumping out these beautiful cars with massive HP!

    Turning 16 in the mid-90's, my dad and I would talk cars quite a bit. ALMOST got a 1985 Camaro 350 as my first car. Ended up getting a '91 Grand Am instead. HA. But I remember discussing why they don't just re-make the old muscle cars from the late 60's/70's and just modernize them. The Challenger has been the closest to that. Got my 2006 Mustang just about 8 months before the 2008 Challenger was finally released. I needed a new car, wanted power, and couldn't not wait for the Challenger to come out, so I got the Mustang instead. It was fun in the 10 years I had it, and currently have the '17 Mustang. But I kinda wished I'd looked more closely at the Challengers now. Maybe soon.

    I think that happens a lot. Chrysler is sorta looked on as a joke and maybe in the past they had reliability issues, but I can say at least with the Challenger/Charger/300, they are just well built cars. I have almost 100,000 miles on my 2011 Challenger and its been trouble free. Yes, you are going to hear the complaints about weight, but you really can get 4 people in a Challenger and 2 sets of golf clubs in the trunk. Yes, it rides on an older C Class Mercedes chassis, but it still handles well and out of the 3, is the best road trip car, hands down. Smooth, comfortable and with plenty of passing power!! Dont hesitate to check one out!

    Wow. There's a estate auction next week in Manitoba with some sweet rides in it. Anyone interested the site is McDougal Auctions. Tons of pics.

    73 Dart
    71 Cutlass Supreme
    72 Pontiac Lemans
    69 Cougar
    76 Ford Courier Truck
    70 Torino. Has numbers matching 429 Cobra Jet engine.

    The truck looks cool. I don't remember the Courier line. I'll assume it was Canadian made?

    Haven’t posted much here as I haven’t had my car out much due to most shows cancelled. However couple guys from work brought their cars in to work yesterday too.

    Left to right is my buddy’s 2015 Roush RS, my 12 GT500, and my bosses 2015 GT with Roushcharger Stage 1 kit.
