How about the if the original engine is gone the car is somehow "junk" types. If you like it buy it and have some fun with it. Just don't pay top dollar for it.

I love that under-dash shelf. My 73 Gremlin's was most useful

Having to take the heater tube hose barb out of the 383's water housing to get some work done.

And lack of an in-dash pizza oven work

Nope. No road runner ever had a factory installed wheel opening molding until the 1971 model.

I am 100% guilty of this and God as my witness, I regret it so much. My 70 GTX was such a nice survivor. Really all it needed was the passenger fender painted to match the rest of the car (fender bender parked the car in the 80s).

Not building your old car so it's fast enough or fun enough to put a smile on your face.

Then buying a new Challenger or Charger to drive instead because your old car is slow (only because you built it that way).

Then going to car shows with your new car and wondering where all the cool old cars are.

No, I sold my old cars for a new challenger because not only is it faster, it’s also more comfortable, and reliable. As far as car shows I quit those years ago.

People who are continually pessimistic about the forecast for a race weekend. If it's gonna rain, then so be it, but it'll be raining 9 states south and theyre blowing up the forums almost bragging how their equipment is gonna sit inside. Sorta takes some of the wind outta your sails about a race weekend.

A car is only as reliable as it's mechanic.

I daily drive a 51 Plymouth. Yet to be stranded.

Is it fast? fast enough for what I need.

Is it comfortable? Yes, like setting on a sofa, AC would be nice in the summer when it's 105+ out. But that cowl vent works like a champ, I can add AC easily enough and no one is going to show up with another one like mine.

Nothing more boring that showing up at a car show and seeing new cars, stock, setting there. Hello, is this a sales lot or a show of man's creativity, skills and talent?
