Welcome to the site, Relic! :wave:  You really found an awesome deal between those two '70s!! :drool: :2thumbs:  That's amazing you now own the Natural Born Killers Challenger!!! :D  I will have to finally take the plunge and purchase the movie just so I can see what the car was like back when that video came out (I knew it was a crappy movie, but at least it's cheap and your Challenger debuted in it). ;)

Six-way seats...I'm very jealous! :faint:

Oh, and your Charger looks amazing, so it's good to see these two Challengers are in good hands now. :thumbsup:

Good score on the Challengers! Diggin' the Charger for sure. What are the wheels on it? BTW...when watching Natural Born Killers just remember you're a car guy and it's all for a good cause. Otherwise the movie sucks.

I watched it the first time, thought it was OK.

Second time I watched for the car only.

Third time I could not make it all the way through, so I watched Vanishing Point for the billion-and-oneth time.

I always wondered what happened to the 'vert though, great find!

Thanks for the warm welcome!
It blows me away how much information is covered on these boards. I signed on about 2 hours ago meaning to reply to this thread but I got lost over in the wheel and tire combo section lol.

Re: Two 70s checking in (The NBK RT is running!)
« Reply #25 on: April 12, 2009 - 05:31:41 am »
Thought Id update you guys; my friend and I got the RT running tonight!
After correcting some wiring issues, a carb rebuild, and add some gas it fired up like a champ! (by how much cotton like crap it blew out the entire exhaust must have been a mouse nest...) Sounded awesome too.
PLUS:
-The all the lights work except for brights (no toe clicker?) and the reverse light which wouldn't surprise me if its just the bulb.
-The clock worked
-The radio worked and sounded great (actually hooked it up to an ipod adapter too haha)
-It drove great*

great*= For all the 30 feet it moved until it became evident that the carb needs to be tuned a little more haha. Oh and the brakes jammed up. But hey success is success right?
Very fun.
My friend and I were so pumped we went out and got the movie. Couple things we noticed:
In the movie there appears to be an actual convertible top at least sitting in place if not hooked up and on the windshield frame there are the convertible clamp-in parts which mine does not have. ??? Also, I have SE trim on the door panels whereas in the movie they are wood grain. Other then that it is the spitting image of it. It has changed hands several times since the movie came out but those are odd modifications to make imo.
Im going to do more digging when I can because, other then those two things, its the spitting image of it. The guy I bought it from gave me paper work for the people that supposedly did the work on the car for the movie. Im going to see what I can track down on it.

You can thank my brother for the close-ups of the speakers  ::)

Next task is getting the coupe fired up. Found some paper work on it for an alignment back in 96 so there's hope of getting that one going fairly easily too.
