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.) http://www.storm.ca/~moparman 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.

3 Years of Crazy! Outtakes, Bloopers, and Stuff You Missed - Roadkill Ep.34
Has it been that long already? Yup, we are 34 episodes deep into this thing we call Roadkill and although this episode might seem like we are mailin’ it in, we are in fact not slowing down at all. This is the good stuff, the moments that didn’t make the cut because we just couldn’t fit them in, and the inside dirt on what really happens when we hit the road with 20 bucks in our pockets and a headful of good ideas. Sit back, pop open a few cold ones, and take a trip down memory lane with Freiburger and Finnegan as they reminisce on puking dogs, smashed hybrids and why nobody seems to like it when they drive to Alaska. Next month we’ll be back with an even bigger episode of Roadkill so stay tuned. Roadkill appears on the Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=motortrend Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/RoadkillShow, http://facebook.com/motortrendmag & http://facebook.com/hotrodmag Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend & https://twitter.com/hotrodmagazine Google + - https://plus.google.com/+motortrend/posts Website - http://www.motortrend.com & http://www.hotrod.com





1973 Plymouth Roadrunner long term resto
Many of you have been there. Restos can be an extremely long, expensive and frustrating process. But I remain optimistic the Flying Scab will see some "give it a rub with Royale" time in early 2008. Watch my page for developments. http://www.storm.ca/~moparman





1973 Plymouth Roadrunner resto VIII
AH YES! Riverside installs the driver's quarter (N.O.S.) and the car really begins to take shape. More to come and dig my Flickr pics too http://www.storm.ca/~moparman





1973 Roadrunner Resto Chapter X
The Scab receives more attention: the right door and trunk lid get putty sprayed on them (3 coats). Next is the filler primer (aka sanding primer). http://flickr.com/tm_artists/sets
