Hey Scott, it has been awhile, hope all is well over on your end.

Yes, it does look good in the shop with the Challenger. I moved on to my 70 RR, but I will get back to the Cuda to refine some things. I need to work on the clutch some, it works but I do not think I am getting the pressure plate over center as it is very heavy (I am running a hydraulic system I built).

My "master" retirement plan is to do the RR and then the 68 Cuda (will be a restomod); then spend the rest of my days tweaking each one as it strikes my interest. We will see how this works out.

Past Mopars

It's been a long road Mike, but at the end, it sure looks like it was worth it!  :thumbsup: Let's see some fresher pics of the truck, too!  :cheers:

Are you referring to my 52? It hasn't changed much since I built it. I did start it the other day and moved it from one shop to the other, god I love that EFI... started right up and idled very nicely; despite the cooler temps and it having sat for the last couple of months. I really need to get back onto the RR, my mill and lathe have been taking up a lot of my time, I am in the process of building a steady rest of the lathe.
