1980 Dodge Aspen R/T
Just got it home after sitting in a farm field for 10 years and a driveway
on stands for 6 years. Started right up (with new battery) then drove on 16
year old gas. I bet new engines wont do that.

1977 PLYMOUTH VOLARE ROADRUNNER -- T TOPS ARE OPTIONAL
The 1968 Road Runner had a four-speed transmission and 383-cubic-inch V8
engine (335 horsepower) with an optional
426-cubic-inch Hemi engine, so named because the combustion chambers were
hemispherical, or dome-shaped. The first car was a two-door, lacking
carpeting and frills. Plymouth paid Warner Brothers $50,000 to use the Road
Runner cartoon character in the logo and even developed a beep-beep horn.
The car sold for $2,896. Plymouth underestimated its popularity, planning
for 2,500 cars and selling 45,000. But by 1975, the Road Runner name
became an appearance package of the Plymouth Fury. The next year, it became
a trim package of the Plymouth Volare, which was built on a different car
platform. The change caused technical issues; the Road Runner's engine was
too large for the Volare. The 1977 model had Lean Burn, the first on-board
engine computer. The Volare based Roadrunner was on the decline. Many
drivers had increased their car's horsepower power with a
four-barrel carburetor conversion, so Plymouth added this as an option.
However, it was too late: Only 1,000 Road Runners were made in 1979. In
1980, production of both the Volare and the Road Runner ended. So this
rare Roadrunner is another example of a once iconic muscle car morphed into
an old painted lady. Looking at this Volare Roadrunner I admire it's paint
and stripping for it does look fairly classy even though this nameplate has
only 3 more years to live. Thanks very much for viewing this rare 1977
Plymouth Volare Roadrunner.
