Default My new dodge!! She's a beaut!

These aren't current pics, but aren't very far off from what it actually looks like:



The real kicker is it only has 69,000 original miles!!
Stats are 318 2 brl, auto, 3:73's with an open diff. Has setup for hauling a car trailer.

What are your plans for it?

Man, you have more vehicles than I do, I think...


I put a lot of miles working/hauling in those dodges. The 318s held up pretty well. Most of our trucks were 360s or the early Cummins diesels. Pulled a small trailer with that 318 every day for 2.5 years. Drove strong for 165k miles of hard labor..

MY plans are to keep it and use it for hauling parts and doing yard work with this summer. THE WIFE thinks that I am just fixing it and selling it.

To answer your second question, Yes I do have more vehicles than you, I think. I have 8 currently.

Seems to run and drive good. It sat for a long time (so I was told) because the original owner couldn't figure out that it had a bad neutral safety switch (would die when put into gear). Drivetrain seems rock solid, body has some issues. All I need is a gun rack and I'm set

The new dodge makes it vehicle 80 since I was 14. Don't ask cause I don't remember them all. It's kinda a blur
