OK, I'll ask. Why Barney? Was the last one Fred?

David,

   He is an annoying dinosaur from a kids show. He's purple...He sings, I love you, you love me.... Anyway, he was the first purple character that I could think of.

Kids shows have changed a lot since we grew up with Fred and Barney.    :grinyes:

In 2010 I went to the dealer with the intention of buying a PCP RT 6 spd; took a little while to locate one but finally found one on the other side of the state and I bought it. I love it and it never fails to get comments. I used my "Mopar bucks" to get a lowering kit, CAI and strut brace, removed the rear muffler/resonators, painted the inside of the wheels, installed a Mr Norms pistol grip handle, installed hood supports and used a Diablo Intune to tune it. This car is a blast to drive and I love it, drove it to the Nationals last year and the MATS several years ago.
Current Mopar
70 Challenger RT 440-6, 73 Cuda (under const)
05 Durango, 99 Dakota, 01 Ram 4x4, 14 2500 4X4, 10 PCP Challenger RT, 01 Viper GTS ACR, 52 B3B w/330 Desoto Hemi, 70 Hemi RR, 61 Jeep FC170
Past Mopars
9 x Challengers. AAR Cuda, 4 RR, 2 GTX, 4 Chargers, etc... (too many to list)

Dave,

   Thanks for chiming in. It stinks that I don't have a garage, but I don't notice it rusting just yet.  :eek7: 

It hasn't been bad driving it in the snow, but my tires have 1200 miles on them, so plenty of tread. I've always owned a rear wheel drive car, so I know it's limitations. So I want to ask if you have all-season tires, or the 3 season tires that they are putting on upper end Challengers now? The reason I ask, is because the 3-season don't last long, and the rubber is pretty much useless when it gets down to freezing. Who's great idea was that?   :o

I'm thinking that this might be my forever car. I have white stripes to install, and that will match the white interior. I have several items to install under the hood. I can't wait to show this car at Carlisle this year....But, I will post pics of what I have done in case you don't make it out.    :thumbsup:
