  This thread is dedicated to our members and their cars.   


This will be a thread of all the members rides with pictures and information on their car.  They should be able to edit their one post to upgrade the info or replace the pics as their restoration progresses.  Please post you info and car no matter what condition or stage you at at.  Whether it is a rust bucket, in a million pieces or a completed show car, we would all like to see it.  Sometime I forget who has what??  This will be a great place to keep track. 

**I will be monitoring this thread and will remove all posts that don't follow the format.  If you would like to comment on a picture or this thread, please look for the discussion thread in this section.

'72 Challenger Rallye 340/727  8 3/4.

I bought it in august 2005. I live in Oslo, Norway.

It's painted Panther Pink, but some spots in the engine room reveals that it used to be a white color. Fender tag is missing, so I've no idea of it's original specs.
VIN #: JS23H2B433645

Engine cast #: Could be MH 340 R 89888183, or most likely, it's MH 340 R 39388183.
It's condition is fairly good. Looks good at a distance, but up close it's clear that this isn't a show car.
Interior is very nice though.

All harnesses have been replaced with new ones from Year One, still some bits and bobs to be replaced in the dash.

Got OEM windshield wiper arms, wiper blades, and refurbished wiper motor installed.

Alterktion front suspension, Street Lynx rear suspension , Holley 750cfm, Edelbrock Air Gap intake, ported and milled heads to achieve 9.5:1 compression, aluminium radiator, Pertronix ignition, custom fuel tank with sump and electric pump, XV chassis stiffening kit, Dougs Headers with ceramic coating, and white / amber LED running lights / parking lights.

1970 Challenger R/T

Bought this one a few days ago. VIN: JS23U0E102400
The seller told me it had been dragracing in the States at some time. I will try to find out more about the past of this car.

The engine is a warmed over 440 with Indy heads and intake, Holley Ultra 750 cfm double pumper carb, unknown cam, seller told me the crank shaft is internally balanced.
The tranny is a TCI Street Fighter. Rear axle appears to be stock, don't know the gearing.
Alterktion, four-link, and wheels from The Pink Panther will be moved over to the R/T, and The Pink Panther will put up for sale.

It came Plum Crazy from the factory, and it will be Plum Crazy again, after a lot of little things have been sorted out.
The wiring urgently needs to be replaced.  :eek7:
The hood will be replaced with a T/A hood,
The fuel tank will be replaced with a custom one with an internal pump (Currently it has an external pump mounted in the trunk, directly on the X-frame behind the rear seat! It's waaay too loud).
The seats will be replaced.
The dashbord got cracks and broken vents which needs to be sorted, and a complete new heating system is required too, because right now there's nothing there, I won't bother with installing AC.
The exhaust tips and rear muffler will be replaced with TTi tips and some or another muffler. Maybe a stock one from ECS, unless the ECS guy here will die from a heart attack induced by seeing what's on there now.  ;)
The reverse light lens will be replaced with a stock clear one.
A EFI conversion might be prudent, considering the double pumper. Fuel is expensive here.

It's not an E-body, but it is a Mopar. Had it since 1980, finished in 1995, well actually are they ever finished?

Here are my two babies.
1st-1970 Challenger R/T Convertiable. Restored all original sheet metal Calif. car including trunk-bumbers-and sidelights. Restored as per broadcast sheet and fender tag with the exception of the motor. The original 383 was swapped out back in the 70's for a 440. The motor now is a 440-30 over with 9.7 to 1 comp. 512 lift Lunita hyd. cam 3000 stall converter by Frank Lupo.8 3/4 4.10 surgrip-complete MSD ingnition-Hooker 1 7/8" headers--Edelbrock RPM dual plane intake--Holley 4779 750 dual feed double pumper-Moroso 8 qt pan with windage tray.The car has power top with power steering and manual drum brakes. The very rare color combination is Hemi Orange with a T5 Saddle Tan SE Leather Interior. It took me 6 years of bugging the original owner who lived 2 miles from my house to sell it to me.I have owned it since 1998.
2nd is my 1967 GTX. This car is completely restored to showroom conditions. All number and dates match. It was featured in two Mopar Magazines and was judged in the very first Carlisle CSO judging in 1994 by Roger Gigson and Galen and 11 other top Mopar men at the time.  Powered by a 440 with a console auto and a 323 suregrip,
I have owned it since 1992

The car relavent to this site is a late 74 production Challenger. Originally avocado green with white vinyl top and white interior, a/c, and every light, stripe, and chrome option available that year, 318 2bbl, 904 awefulmatic trans and 8 3/4 rear with 2:76 peg leg.

I picked it up in '01 in its current dark blue paint. There are at least 7 layers beneath the current color so it will need stripped some time and when it does, I can fix some of the rust in the rear quarters. Headlight covers are fixed for participation at open track events, but I'm working on some method of movable opening so they can remain hidden during the day. To be honest, the car is kind of a pile and needs a complete make over, but it isn't in the cards right now, so I drive it.

Engine is currently a 360 4bbl ,4 spd, with 3:55 sure grip. New engine dynos over 400 horses altitude adjusted at the crank but being that I use it at a 5000ft altitude, it only has around 275 at the wheels (FWIW a mild big block will only make 180-200, so I can't complain too much). Car is being used as a test bed for suspension and chassis mods. It has had stock t bars, springs, and no sway bars all the way up to 1.2 t-bars, adjustable sway bars and mondo heavy springs with various styles of shocks. I'm collecting all the data  to create a matrix of what mods create what benefit to handling at what price. Figure it will be good data to share with others as well as enjoying the tinkering in the mean time.

My baby for 14 years
Was a daily driver when I first got it,then spent a few years sitting all apart.I then met the people of this site and they gave me all of the encouragement to get going on it.The 318 was removed and a built 360 with a 904 low gear set and 323 sure grip 8 3/4 rear.The car could use a paint job ,but that will have to wait-------------
because in the garage is my project car a 71 Cuda,I hope to start on real soon.I think the sign on the garage sums it up.
I have also added another car to the stable,my 92 Electric blue Daytona Iroc
I am waiting for next one to arrive(being transported)1993 Dodge Daytona Iroc R/T(White one with rear louvers)
and another just arrived last weekend,a 92 daytona Iroc(white one next to the blue one)

Well here is my 74 Barracuda. It has a 340 (originally 318) with edelbrock intake, headman hedders and 727 torqueflight transmission with 2500 stall convertor. I have had her for a little over a year now and am always trying to improve her. I have done a lot of improvements and am now currently replacing front floor pans, Carburetor (edelbrock thunder series 650 ), carpet and front seat belts, front wheel bearings, powering steering box, front shocks (kyb), inner tie rods and some other misc items. I still have a ways to go before I finish with her but I am enjoying cruising with her as I fix her.
