Roadrunner Resto IX
Dec. 7, 2008: as I upload this the paint is already flying and the engine compartment, underneath, passenger compartment and trunk are all red. More updates as they happen. Hey I'm playing catch-up!
1973 Plymouth Roadrunner Resto I
My beloved '73 Roadrunner, ordered Oct. 17, 1972 delivered to Claireview Chrysler Plymouth in Pointe Claire, Que. Dec. 19, 1972 on my 17th birthday. (My parents let me pick/order the car so I wouldn't get a motorcycle.) FINALLY in to my preferred facility Riverside Restorations in Manotick, Ontario. My car is Galen Govier documented by the way. Original owner 400 auto. (Now 1971 440.)
1973 Plymouth Roadrunner Resto II
(Jack Webb voice) Riverside Restorations. Feb. 18, 2008. Bob and Noel are hard at it and the floor pan repair piece is primed, trimmed and about to be Mig welded into place. Driver's door is off as you can see, right quarter about to be prepped. Lots happening.
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.
