    Thought I'd share my journey, which started about 3 years ago. Bought this 73' Dart Sport, https://barnfinds.com/something-special-1973-dodge-dart/, as a parts car for my 72' Duster. After robbing the goodies I needed for my big block swap such as the Kmember I modified thanks to Jim Lusk I grabbed the bucket seats, center console, steering column etc. I put the slant 6/kmember and bench seat from my Duster into the Dart Sport and gave it to my girlfriends brother in law. Problem was he was Georgia and I'm in Northern California. After a year of talking about it and saving up vacation time we got finally got a plan together and he flew out, we fixed a few things and hit the road

          Ran outta gas outside Flagstaff AZ. Fuel guage didn't work and miscalculated mileage. Luckly we brought a few gas cans

                          Got to Roswell NM and got pulled over, had the original California plate and a temp plate for Georgia. Officer was cool and laughed when we told him what we were doing, his response was "you think this thing will make it?". Got some food and camped somewhere outside town

                                  Not much in west Texas but we did get pulled over again. Same thing, duel plates, but this time they wanted to make sure we wernt smuggling any dope. Gave us a warning and sent us on our way

                                    After that incident we got donuts and checked out this cool old junk yard. Wish we would have gotten there sooner as it was 15min before closing but the old guy running it let us hang out and check everything out

                                        From Texas to Georgia we only stopped a few times as I had to make sure I made my flight. But still got some good pictures.
