    After almost 30 years I have returned to my Mopar roots. As a young man I owned a 1966 383 Charger, a 1972 340 Duster and last and certainly not least a 1970 440 Six Pack Superbee. I campaigned a 1968 AMX PRO ET for over 20 years with a fair amount of success during my active duty Navy career. Now that the nest is empty I decided I wanted to go racing again ( does that ‘bug’ ever really leave us?). I was successful in tracking down my old AMX in New Hampshire and thought I had struck a deal with the current owner to buy it back, but he fell off of the face of the earth and I acquired this 1972 382 powered drag car. Very happy to be pounding the pavement with Mopar muscle again!
