        Not mine, but my dad's, who is the original owner. It's an R/T with a Hemi swapped in. 4 speed. Hasn't moved in 8 years sadly.

          Well I have had a few.

          My first car was a 70 Dodge Dart Swinger. 318 4bbl, headers, 360 heads, small cam, 727 with 3.23 rear.


          Sr. year I got a 66 Dodge Coronet 500. original 383 4bbl car. Had a 383 in it with a mild cam, headers, and 3.55 rear


          Then after high school I got a 67 Coronet 400. Original 383 4bbl 4 speed car. Never finished it..


          The Coronet above I sold to get a 68 Plymouth GTX. 440 automatic car that was bare bones in the option department. No pictures of it.

          Soon afterwards I got this 67 Coronet R/T 440 automatic car



          I traded the R/T for this 62 Impala SS. Original 327 glide car. But had a ZZ4 crate engine with the glide when I got it.


          Sold the Impala to buy another Mopar. Got a 72 Dodge Demon 340. At the same time I also bought a 70 AMC AMX. The Dakota was my daily


          I sold the Demon and bought a truck but sometime down the line I bought this 67 Coronet Deluxe from my buddy. It was his first car. Had a blown up 273 in it. I put a 360 with a Six Pack in it.



          later on I got another 70 Swinger, this one had a built 360 and was mini tubbed.


          Sold the dart and got a 67 Coronet 500, 383 4bbl automatic (no pictures)

          Got rid of the Coronet and picked up a 72 Vega, Been a drag car since the mid 70's


          Then I started moving into more modern muscle 80's+

          85 GN


          96 Firbird Formula


          and later a 96 Firebird Firehawk


          I currently own a 65 Chevrolet Corvair. had it for almost 8 years now. But it's more of a classic car and not really muscle..

            Damn Jason you had a nice collection going on there lol !!!!! My first car was in 1988 a 1969 chevelle SS396 (was stolen) then i got a 1967 Ford Fairlane 500 with a 289 v8 4 bbl and that all stopped about 1992 (accident) and i haven't had another Muscle Car till now. A 24 year gap between having a Muscle Car is way to long !!!

              I miss the power! The Corvair is a very fun car but has no plant you in the seat and hold on excitement. I'd love to get another 66 Coronet 500. Or maybe a 69-70 Dart Swinger 340.

                  I grew up around drag racing and big V8s. My Dad was into Corvette restoration when I was kid and gradually moved onto Mopars by the end of the '80s. I used to REALLY want a late 340 4-speed A-body, but E-body prices prices skyrocketed dragging Dart prices up with them keeping them out of my reach, and these days I don't have room for a 2nd car or a garage. I'm not even joking though when I say I want to put together a daily driver S52/S54 '63-'64 Valiant wagon.


                  No V8 but I had a clean, lowered '73 Valiant with a big system as a teenager in the '90s. Only 40k miles when I bought it, drove it across the country twice. My love for the slant-6 fed my interest in BMW sixes.






                  My Pops is almost 70 and has a '64 Plymouth Fury with a 500hp .060-over pump gas 440 in front of a push-button, manual valve body auto (manually shifting a 500hp push-button car is nuts), as well as a restored '69 Road Runner 426 Hemi 4-speed he usually keeps as a "day 2" car with bigger carbs, cam, Hurst, period Sun tach, line lock, cheaters/skinnies, etc.. The '64 he redid himself, the Road Runner was half-ass restored in the mid-'90s by a previous owner with my Dad and I finishing it and fixing their mistakes.





















                  It doesn't matter how many time I go to drive that '64, I know what is coming, but even when it has been sitting you just have to tap the key and immediately are startled and consumed by that sound of a big block through Flowmasters. I get why people are so into those type of cars.

                            that is a very impressive collection of mopars, jasonc.

                            when i was 18, i had the chance to buy a 67 gtx with 4 speed for 2400.00. i don't know why i passed on that car. i did have several 65 gto's. one was try power/4speed/power windows/power seat/am/fm radio...etc. the color was originally iris mist purple with white interior.

                            sadly, i don't have any pics handy. i guess i shall go through my extremely large box of prints and see if i can find some.

                              You should maybe consider getting another car Jason. I did just for the fact i wanted to get another one before they go back up in price and out of my reach money wise.
