    I didn't need another project but now that I have the 70' Road Runner that needs everything. I enjoy the parts hunt. Of course most everything is over priced but I do find some good deals once in a while. Just need to be patient.

    I had fun looking and bugging everybody on any forum page I could resource. I do kinda miss the process.

    Well you know that if it has Mopar on it somewhere the price goes up double or triple

    True, but I just can't bring myself to buy a Chevy with another dang cowl induction hood no matter how much cheaper they are.

    Not me buddy's when this one is done going to drive the heck out of it. To old to start another project. But you get on the hunt for something for these runner's and your on the computer till 3 or 4 am. trying to find what your looking for. To find new door latches was a real challenge. Found them in a truck forum they where brand new. So thing's are out their but have to be innovative in the search. :thumbsup2:

    It depends on what the parts hunt really is.... Is it opening a catalog (or web page) and getting a credit card out or is it looking through boxes at swap meets and talking to people to find the real deal, made in the USA parts that the car was built with?

    I've begrudgingly used repop parts, but I'll fix/repair/restore an original part whenever I can. There's next to zero repop parts available for my '70 300 vert... and the parts hunt is much more fun.

    that was the best part on my last car. I'd spend most of two days at The Nats looking thru parts. Prices can be high, but do your research, and get a price in mind you are willing to pay and stick with it. There will be times you will pass a part up, taking the risk it won't be there later to look for a cheaper one. I almost always found a better deal. e bay, the car sites all can have deals.

    Always looking but the Road Runner is project #4 on the list right now. Charger #1"has always been my driver. My Challenger is about 90% done. Then it is on to Charger #2.

    Technically, I gave my 70' Road Runner to my oldest Son & the other (2ND) 70's Charger to my youngest Son but they are still in my possession. I am not in this hobby for the money. I am in this hobby for the love of cars. Hopefully, to pass on the torch to my Son's now that they are getting older. I was able to score a bunch of parts from a very nice gentleman that had leftover from finishing his car & gave me everything as pictured since it was for my Son for $100.00. This is why I get excited for this hobby. Not everyone is out there to try to make a killing on parts or a car. Nice to know deals are still out there. Even got a fender tag for an old 70' Satellite/Belvedere also in the package deal.
