    Another new guy here! I have a 1969 roadrunner that has been in my life since 1977. As my wife says its my first love! It’s a 383, 4 speed, power nothing! Its barracuda orange with black vinyl top and a black striped air grabber hood with bun scorching black interior. Did I forget mention that I’m in the central valley of California where it’s not uncommon to have heat waves of over 100 degree temps for 15 plus days? It was my street fighter in the day. I have recently discovered many of my former street racing buddies have "restored" their rides. Still street racers but now they have nice paint, clean interiors, and beautiful engines. Big difference from how they looked in the late 70's. All those guys inspired me. So with my son's assistance we will be returning my ride back to its former glory only better. I'll post pics tonight. Thanks in advance for help in this new endeavor

    Bill

    Don't tell me you are a K9 Officer at CS Chennel Islands.
    In any event, you are 8 miles from my house and I envy you if you do own a precious '69 Roadrunner. I would love to see it at our local car shows.
    Can't wait to see your ride.
    LG,
    Mike

    Havn't seen a 100 bun scorthing degrees in a long time but ditto on the black interior. Welcome from Maine! The opposite shore!
