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.

Stewart Logan's last trip
To Georgetown, ON to buy and retrieve his 1973 Monaco. Just a few weeks before we lost him to suicide. His widow had the car crushed fyi. (No motor, was orig. 360 2 bbl.) http://theroyal.ca Mental Health Crisis Line 1.866.996.0991





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





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