Hello everybody,

My name is Clint, and I just took delivery of the Q5 turquoise Daytona, the one restored by Charles Self and then owned by Ed Cook, Dave, Ryan, etc... I just wanted to say hello. It appears that my new treasure has really made the rounds over the years, with a number of owners and has been all over the country, but thankfully was taken excellent care of by each one. Well, this Q5 is now finally HOME. I don't think I've ever sold a car (daily drivers excepted), so I am not just blowing smoke about that. It has always been a dream of mine to own a Daytona. There are a couple of Superbirds in my town (Sioux Falls, SD), but I have never seen another Daytona here (certainly not another Q5   icon_smile_big).

Anyway, I have been a Mopar guy since I was a teenager, and restored my 1970 Charger 500 (dad is original owner) during college. That one is burnt orange with 383 Magnum. I have 3 sons and they are all absolutely car CRAZY already. I am working on the restoration of a 68 Charger 383 with my oldest son (14) right now, and next in line will be my 10 year-old and his 68 Dart 340.

I look forward to frequenting this forum and chatting with you. My boys are glad that I have gotten enthusiastic again about the Mopar muscle, because I have strayed the last several years (GT500s, Ford GT, and *gasp* Nissan Gt-Rs).

Welcome Clint, very nice car.  Some advice from an "Old" Daytona owner:  Rule number 1, Always remember there are 18 inches of nose hanging out front that you can't see from the drivers seat!

Thanks for the warm welcome everybody, and for the nice comments. Looks like you all have some terrific machines and terrific collections, as well. Ed, cool to hear a former owner of the Q5 chime in- thanks for taking such good care of her. Hope to meet up with you someday.

As far as that garage, there is a lot more to it, and it is one of three "garages" in my house. When I get some time I can post some other pics for anybody interested. And for the purple Challenger convertible fan- thanks! It was on the cover of Mopar Muscle a while back:

WOW Shocked Shocked
What a set-up you have Clint.  Congratulations on not only the Daytona, but for setting an example to your sons on what hard work can accomplish.  As a high school guidance counselor, I see so many teenage boys with no drive and no goals.  Keep up the good work with your cars and your sons.
