I got up at 4:00 am and left my house at 5:00 am yesterday morning and drove to Van Nuys, California for the big Chrysler car show Spring Fling.

A good time had by all.

;D

I got put in the "Modified Truck and Van All Years" class. So I had to compete with the newer stuff too.
But my truck prevailed!




The new Ram on the end got 2nd place. The Dodge A-100 got 3rd.
That A-100 was pretty cool. He transplanted a newer 5.7 Hemi in it along with it's transmission. A definite sleeper.
All the other trucks left by this point. Some really nice, old stockers. They had their own class.
I think I got first because I explained to the judge what my truck was all about.


It's Petty Fest this week in Level Cross. He would be proud of a Mopar Man.

All my neighbours drive them but mostly due to company subsidies and govt. policy.  Full-electric seems to be way better.
And even better than that IMO is driving what you have for as long as possible and driving as little as possible. 

Biggest problem here is the crazy need to buy a new model car every couple of years as some kind of status symbol.
My truck turned 49 last December.
Yep. It's not an economy car. But it's sure fun to drive. It can be annoying because all the compliments it gets all day long when I drive it around. And everybody wants pictures of it.
Around here, Tesla's are all around. It's surprisingly how many you see on the side of the road or on tow trucks. People are not aware they run out of battery sooner than they think. Especially when they run the air conditioning.
Electric cars are great for using them like golf carts around town. No thank you for going on any kind of road trip.

Hybrid cars are still incredibly popular, but are they good for the environment?

So ugly it’s beautiful.
And the only 2 we had were the 198 and the 225 Cu in. Preferred the 225 Cu in for that little extra HP.

Mopars had "Sure Grips".
BM vehicles called it Posi- Traction.

The ultimate is a Detroit Locker. Which was installed as an option on factory vehicles of most brands. Usually with heavy duty towing packages.
I have a Detroit Locker in the rear end of my truck.
And a Tru- Trac gear type locker in my frond end.
Which makes it nearly unstoppable off road.
Point and shoot.

Some what.
I've never owned one.
They came in 3 sizes...
170 cu in.
198 cu in.
225 cu in.
And as Gene mentioned below... they are some of the toughest engines ever put together.
One could also get a Hyper- Pak engine kit from Chrysler that produced quite a bit more horsepower. Right at 200 h.p. to be exact.
There's guys out there still that race them.

          Slant 6. Haven't heard that engine size in an eon.  Raced a Dart with one on a short track and it took a beating. Lost coolant and most of the nose and kept on running. At the end of the race it died and we had to leave it on the inner oval of the track. Popped the hood and the freakin' engine was cherry red. Came back a couple of hours after the race was over to tow it out of there and wouldn't you know it, it started right up.

And on that note, my mom is the only person I know of who would kill 2 Slant Six engines in her lifetime.
