      I thought Ashley Simpson was also a cutey before her nose job. After, I thought she just looked like Jessica.
      And on Jake's season of the Bachelor, the winning lady, Vienna... I thought she was so beautiful, but then, she had a nose job. And she just looked ordinary to me.

          I don't mind them. I do prefer the same year Duster styling but the Dart is not ugly. I have owned several:

                Thank you. I thought of the '69 Dart GT when I was trying to do something different with this grille.

                    This one was bought for $73 in 1994 with a knocking slant 6.

                    I paid $400 for this Swinger with an excellent running 318/904. It had disc brakes but was RUSTY ! IMG_2867.JPG

                          Sounds like something familiar to me.
                          Been there, done that.

                                I'm partial but I love beak cars I have a 75 dart. As a 75 owner I can honestly say I like the 73 and 74 grilles better I'm not s huge fan of the recessed marker light area in the grille I much prefer the flat slow point to the 73 and 74 grille. I actually had planned on switching mine to a 74 grille I even found one for sale on here and was gonna buy it but never got a shipping quote or ever heard anything back about it. I do like the 74 and 75 swinger and 74 75 valiant/scamp taillights better than the in the bumper ones. (70-73) I like all darts but 74 and 74 back ends are my favorite.

                                    They're ok.lol

                                    for a 16 year old kid. a clean 74 dart with a slant was $3500. A clean demon with no engine was $9000. A 318 70 or earlier was 10+

                                    I'll live with it and tuck the bumper. I'm sure you can see from the first pic, to the last I cut and sectioned the bumper even further in. I get why people don't like them in the OE setup. Even moved in my fiberglass shell even stuck out like buck teeth.

                                      I have had a few breakers, only part that I dislike is the trim on the dash, I just like plainer. I love cars that most people don't, they are better bargains!!!!!!!! I have had 68-70 B bodies, 70-1 E bodies, etc but never again..too many people in love with them and way too high for toys for me!!
                                      Got a few F bodies... talk of heap unless a T top super coupe!! The wagon was yes a project but came with a perfect grill, the only F part that costs bucks, no rust and straight. $400 if I don't count the diesel and an 9 hr trip aross a little bit of Tx. Swapped out the grill and still priced her at $500. still here.. ha ..Decided to add it to the herd!!!! Maybe some wide back tires, and a honkin engine ( read cheap 400???? engine).. maybe add the F pedals and hump no one wants too!???? ha
                                      Now to just get rid of the side trim!?? [​IMG]
