Yea, that’s right! I already have a project and my wife is on her way home. When to tell her that I just trailered home my dream car. 1969 Roadrunner. I don’t know, you tell me. Bandaid or see how long I can hide it in the grove? I think my marriage is strong enough but this will surely be a good test. The other thing is to her it is a pile of junk. It’s rusted. There is some weight reduction to include speed holes. Also, no engine/trans/interior. She doesn’t see the beauty like I do. Op, she’s here. Gota go. Wish me luck. Pics/details will follow if I survive. If no then....Im Stephen. I put the u (upside-down n) my name at the end because I’m sure someone has my name as a username. Hopefully, later!

Welcome to the site. Yep think every thing I drag home should have gone to the junk yard according to my wife. When buying this runner she had the expression of despair on her face. Good luck by a big tarp and Camouflage it. LOL.

My wife used to say “is that thing going TO the junkyard?” whenever I brought an old parts car home. She learned very quickly that they make me good money, and a 69 Roadrunner will always hold its value. It will keep you out of the bars, off the lakes, and have you groveling around her feet, she’ll be fine. Welcome to Mopar madness, it’s a great place to be!

The trunk pan is gone. The floor has some areas where prior owner bugger welded in flat steel patch panels. The majority of the floor seems solid. I have not found cancer in the frame rails. I rolled it over into the corner of the shop while I finish putting together another project. I hope to get to the RR.

When there’s a Roadrunner in the house, can there really be another project before it? It will sit there.....calling you.....watching as you work.....guilting you, until you finally see the light and just push that other project aside. First good night of sleep you’ll get, I guarantee!

I know what you mean... just staring at me while I’m trying to work!
