    New guy here. My wife just got me another Mopar for Xmas. I had a 72 Charger when we were dating and had to sell it when the Navy transferred us. She said she would get me another project car one day and boy did she came through this time! Look forward to checking out the site and meeting some more Mopar Heads!

    Hey seabee, Welcome to FABO, and may I be the first to say that you have a beautiful cat there, and an AWESOME wife!!! I'm gonna look under my tree and see if I got anything like that hiding around the back, under the low branches!!! I'd like to hear some facts and info about the car, it sure is a beauty!!! Thats a cool little slide show too, I wonder how you did that?? I'll probably have to have my kids help with that one!!LOL!! Welcome again and make yourself at home here, you're in good company, Geof

    Thanks guys! The slideshow effect is an animated .Gif format. If you use photoshop you can use this http://www.wikihow.com/Create-Animated-GIFs-Using-Photoshop-CS3 .

    What I have decoded so far is that it was originally Silver with Red stripes and red interior 273 car. It's nothing special under the hood, just some bolt on Edelbrock performer series intake and carb with flowmaster exhaust. The only problem is that there's not enough for me to tool on since the previous owner did a good job of replacing all the interior and having the motor/tranny rebuilt. Unlike my old Charger I'll actually get to drive this on the weekends instead of being underneath it.

    I'll keep her around a bit lol. Whenever I talk engines or horsepower she just shakes her head. As the Chief engineer of the USS Gridley she reminds me that she has 100,000 HP under the hood. But I remind her that my car can do more than 50+ knots but minus the missles and such.
