1970 Satellite 440 is Gone (But my '73 RR will now live!)
My beloved little sweetheart "Granny" (full nickname Grandmere Demers after Charlie Demers' beautiful lamented '70 440+6 Roadrunner) is gone and I am crushed. But she went to a good home, Mark of WI who also owns a B7 '70 GTX and he'll lavish love on her too. Granny baby, I will miss you FOREVER!
Now to get started on the 12-18 month plan to get my original owner 1973 400 auto Roadrunner back on the road. That's the reason Granny had to go. For the sake of my Bird which we ordered new in October 1972. PS: like the mufflers? Most people do. They were on my '73 originally and I have an NOS pair of them, they're Thrush CVX's, discontinued. Like a cross between Flowmaster and Dynomax, ballsy, loud but not glasspack crispy 'annoying loud.'

Test Driving 1969 Plymouth Road Runner 383 V8 4 BBL Four Speed
I thought you'd like a look at this 1969 Plymouth Road Runner in action.
It's powered by a 383 V8, with an Edelbrock intake, 4 BBL carb, coated
headers, and Air Grabber induction. All the power is being funneled through
a hurst shifted four-speed manual back to an 8 3/4 rear. This car runs out
strong and it's in absolutely immaculate condition. It's as clean in the
engine bay and underneath the car as it is on the outside. The interior
looks showroom new as well. This car is a proven show winner as well. I hop
you find it interesting....thanks for watching!

Visiting The Flying Scab my 1973 Roadrunner in storage
Yes I actually DID hug and kiss my 1973 Roadrunner in the storage place
today, it's been months since I saw it last and two years since any work
was done on it. (I was the one who did all the work btw.)
Btw: I call it The Flying Scab because before I started the resto it was
kinda crusty and it certainly was fast, with a 1970 440 6bbl motor in it,
over 400 HP with 4.10 gears. Hopefully in 2008 the resto will re-start.
