    Welcome to the forum. Thank you for your service. Any of your Mopars have a hemi? Photos?

      Thank you, glad that I found your site. Just a 2011 Inaugural 392 Hemi auto Challenger SRT8. I have a 69 A12 and a 70 A13. Both are 440 3 deuces automatics. Purchased the A12 new. It is a Q55 car which is quite rare. So far mine is the only one registered. Also have a 66 Hemi Coronet clone with a 440, a 98 R/T purchased new, 1999 Ram 3500 SPORT Cummins 5 spd, 2003 SRT4, and my wife's 2013 Dart Limited Turbo 6 spd.

        Impressive. I always wanted a hemi. My wife had a Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland with a hemi. For a Jeep it was a rocket.

          I have a 426 Hemi, but the block is cracked and I haven't looked into the cost of having it welded up, if it is even salvageable. It is an aftermarket cast block.

            My daughter has a Hemi R/T Durango and it runs well.

              Welcome aboard! Glad to have you! My favorite MOPARS are the 1958 Plymouth Fury (Christine), and the 1968 Dodge Charger with a 440 Magnum. Sexiest (classy if it's the Fury) cars ever made my MOPAR. And I'm a Ford guy! And thank you for your service sir!

                Thank you. I like some of the older Fords also.

              Welcome in Sir from SoCal!

              I had a numbers matching '68 Dart GTS B5 blue automatic w/shift kit cam and headers back in the '90s before Barrett Jackson and the internet made classics unaffordable. If I tried to buy it again today it would cost 5-8 times what I paid then. I missed doing old cars, haven't had one for about 22 years and recently got a '71 v8 conversion Pinto, it's all I could afford, but when I get done and put in a bigger motor it will kick ass.

                Sounds good. After I got out of the Army in 1969 I purchased my 69.5 Dodge Super Bee SIX PACK. I have been fortunate enough to hang onto it, even back when I was unemployed and broke. The Pinto is light and should be quick.
