    Hey all,

    I've been lurking on here since last Summer when I picked up a '68 Dodge Dart and thought I should finally introduce myself.

    It looks to be a base model slant-six auto 2-dr hardtop but has a V8 K-member now. It's mostly just a shell, so I have a lot of work ahead of me. Only things I've done to it so far are removed all the spare parts and gave it a thorough wash to remove 10+ years of grime.

    I'm debating on what to do with it still as far as a project goes. First step will be to fix the rust on the front frame rails.

    Beyond that, I have 2 '98 Dakotas and I picked up a '68 Roadrunner this Fall as well. I live about 20 miles west of Milwaukee.
