Wow, those are some nice looking Mopars kingtroll. They sure know how to restore em in your town. :grinyes:

I could be wrong but they may not have been restored locally. Every time I ask somebody where they got there body work done it's usually somewhere else.  :banghead:

 Last weekend got the shocks in (didn't realize it's a two man job for the rears) and still didn't find the bad dash ground.
 I still wasn't happy with the carb so took it to a local tech(drag racer) and he's had it for the last three days, went to see him tonight and I'll get it back tomorrow after he does a final choke check. Says it runs real good now. :burnout:
 This weekend going to pull the radio for repair , doesn't work and wasn't a priority and see if I can find that bad ground in the dash.
 
Moparfest 1more week !! :jumping: :crazy: :swaying: :cheers:

I finally got around to detailing my trunk. I really need to get a space saver tire, but this will work for now.

I'm trying to make some more room in the garage so i'm going to move the jeep to a friends house for a few months untill I buy a new 28' enclosed car trailer.This should free up a ton of space for the Challenger!

Well,
I finally got the 4:10 posi unit installed this weekend. had really nice weather, low 80's and low humidity. Unfortunately as I've already posted, it seems the 4:10 unit is a piece of junk as it has "issues". Now I can tell you what I'll be doing next weekend!!! :roflsmiley: :roflsmiley: :roflsmiley: Oh, I can say this much, going from a 2:76 interstate gear (open carrier) to a 4:10 posi is like adding Nitrous!! Woo-Hoo. Just wished it was a good unit!! :swear:

Drove my wife's Cuda about 400 miles round trip this weekend to the Super Summer Cruise in Branson, Missouri.
Averaged 29 mpg and had the cruise control set on 70 most of the way.
I love Cudas with modern drivelines. It's the best of both worlds.
I think it's time to convert one of my 71 Cudas to modern driveline. :biggrin:

Lots of driving (I hope). :burnout: Leave for Moparfest tomorrow morning and should be about 1200km round trip. I've done just about everything to make this car reliable to go  :working:but have only put about 300 miles on it since its 20 year hibernation.
Had to get towed off the highway tuesday, it was only a minor electrical problem I should have spotted. :swear:
We should be checked in to the hotel early afternoon  :cheers: and be at Moparfest early Saturday morning. 

I just hope I'm not on the side of the highway doing this :clueless: or this :sadwavey:

Anybody that will be there stop by, I'll probably be easy to spot being one of the few B1 blue cars.
