It's a dry heat
After over 20 years of lusting for this very car. And after nearly 18 months of getting in a position to pull that trigger.
The car is finally in MY garage ,,,and will be for a very VERY long time to come.

I dont plan to changes much ,,,mainly a few detail items . And find a set of the stock spinner hubcaps for the someday tire / wheel change. When I feel like a change from the 15" chrome magnums . But for the most part it will stay pretty much as I bought it

Nice car!

I'd just add some redline radials on the magnum wheels and call it done.

Nice ! Great colors.
I understand the spinner-covers idea, but the 15" Magnums look so nice on there.
IIRC, didn't they have a blue streak tire when new ?

yes, blue streaks were OE stock.

Just with the red interior I think they would look really out of place. So the blue streaks are not an option , at least for me
This is a couple ideas I have floating around for tires or wheel choices I REALLY like them both .

Gots to get it transferred and tagged, then some small trips to burn 2 year old gas out ( not going to take long ) Will run a couple tanks of 105 octane ( avail fairly close by )

Ha, I have pretty much had this car locked up for well over a year. I had to get all the cards in order ( not to mention talk the wife into letting me blow our original budget clear out of the water . ( like almost double ) And that took some time to make happen .

2 separate times in the past 6 months he actually turned down A LOT more than what I paid for it,,,,, I feel like he was glad to see me get the car as its next caretaker

I was there the day he bought it and had it delivered back in 1998 . Told him then , if he didnt want it. I did. And have lusted for it ever since. Trust me it puts a BIG smile on my face when I walk into the garage and see it sitting there grin boogie

"Eight cylinders all mine, all right, hold tight, I'm a highway star!"

Love it. I've owned one 426 Hemi car & I miss it every day. It was unceremoniously taken from me in a fire back in 1985. I still remember exactly what it felt like driving it - it was otherworldly.

Beautiful car, I vote for the magnums and redlines, they just look right on the car IMO ENJOY
And realize how lucky you are to have the wife you do. Do not forget to let her know byt doing unexpected little things, Maybe a note in her purse, putting toothpaste on her toothbrush etc.

My first car was a 66 Satellite, of course it had a poly 318. IF I ever went back to a plyMOUTH I would get another 66 Saty...Congrats!
