      If I had a '69 Charger, I'd want it triple black with a red r/t stripe.

        Of course I love it! But i think the grill on a GTX is better looking, and I think the tail lights on the '68 GTX/RR are 2nd to none.

          I actually like the taillights of the '68 better, but the grille on a '69 looks aggressive.

              I saw a car that I think was a '68 Bee and the guy put a '69 grille in it. It looked so weird, but honestly somewhat cool.

                  Well, my Colt race car was a dream of mine for many many years.

                  But... I would really like to find a '67 Barracuda Hardtop, Bronze, Black interior, Formula S with a 273 Commando 4 speed! This is a Blue 383, but you get the idea.

                      So here is what I got this weekend. Have new quarters for it, 400 and 4spd. Plan is for a vintage stock car for the street. Full chassis and cage, not much else. Reminiscent of Buddy Bakers car.

                            Sounds like a plan! Good luck with the car! Hopefully it's all you wanted and more.

                                    Dads car. We would sacrifice any and all of our stuff to get this car back. Last seen in 1973 behind Shelleys Chicken in old town Plymouth, Mi., up on blocks with the motor pulled.

                                      63 OR 64 Polara. I found a front bumper for one in an old closed dealership. In the rafters of all places. As close as I have gotten so far.

                                      For me it is the 1969 CHP Dodge Polara, the 69 CHP Polara has long been seen as the holy grail car among vintage police car collectors. With the mythical stories of speed from the day they went into service the cars were grabbed for their engines, nothing more than a standard HP 440. Of the 1500 or so that were built only a dozen or so known to survive, of those only two fully restored.

                                      When I first looked at the idea of doing a vintage CHP car the 69 stood out for its styling, I soon learned of its holy grail status. Thinking I wouldn't be able to afford a genuine car I started on a clone, several months into it I located a genuine one, it was tight but I worked out a deal, it needed work.
