Title: Just Checking In!!!
Post by: fc7gtx on October 27, 2005 - 05:11:36 pm
I saw a few pics of my car on this site so I figured it was time to join. I belong to a few sites so I will join in when I can. This is my 1970 Plymouth GTX. Its a numbers matching 440 4bbl car. I have added a few go fast goodies including a six barrel which I have always wanted. It has the air grabber hood, Hood mounted turn signals (they work), and of coarse the factory "In Violet"  aka 'Plum Crazy' exterior color. Looking forward to talking to a few of you in the future!!!!

 No, your eyes are propbably just fine. You have to be sitting in the drivers seat to see them. They are on the hood, left and right of the 440 callout in this pic.

Good to see you made it here Chris. Guess I'm one of the guilty ones who posted some pics of your car, but I didn't think you'd mind. This is a pretty friendly place to hang out, and they even welcome us B-body guys as part of the family!

 I don't mind if anybody posts pics of my GTX. I have a big collection of other mopars that I save and enjoy on my hard drive. I'm a bit taken back by the attention the car gets but I enjoy the car and if others like it then thats ok with me.

Thanks guys for all the kinds words and comments!!! Since this is a Cuda Challenger site I will have to show my only E-body that I owned. It was a '73 Challenger 340 4bbl 4spd. I bought it in high school and was my daily driver along with my '70 Road Runner. I alternated driving them to school. Those were the days!!!

It was my first ever car and first mopar. It was a 383 4bbl 4spd. Bought it sometime in the fall of 1979 for $1050.00  This pic was with the blue Challenger Buckets in it. Don't ask me why I did that. it was a bench seat car. I also can't explain why it had wheel lip moulding. 1970 Road Runners never had that option so all I can come up with was it was a deal installed item.
