    Hello All,

    I am happy to be apart of this group of Roadrunner owners. I hail from California (formally and Oldsmo 442 guy) but have since found a gem in a 1970 Plymouth Roadrunner 383 auto (727). This car has been sitting for 10 years and spent the last 2 days getting it to turn over and finally fire. After an arduous task of retapping a sparkplug hole I feel accomplished, yet the fun has just begun :)

    I look forward to all the input I receive and read and look forward to a Mopar future. Thanks again!

    Welcome from fl. Looks like the car is pretty solid. Your lucky you have the rallye dash gauges. Wish you the best on the project. I bought a 69 two post and have had to replace a lot of the metal on the car. Getting close to finishing the body work one last quarter on RH side drip rails and other metal on that side including wheel housing. Have fun my man. Lots of people here are willing to help so ask us and we will do our best. Still like the Olds 442 also.
