It's all painted and the new hemi and tranny are sitting there ready and I just can't find the time or energy to finish it. I got bored with it before it was completed.

   GOT BORED W/ A HEMI???   I WISH I HAD YOUR PROBLEM!!!    bawling ahum violin

i've found that when that happens to me i put it aside and get into something else. time passes and i get back into it again. variety is the spice of life my friend. enjoy what you got. or you could sell me that boring r/t se and get a roller to daytona out.    Cheesy

To be honest, if I hadn't bought the 69 runner, the 69 bee and the 69 R/T SE from a good friend, I would sell them all and go buy a real superbird (could never afford a daytona). The tranny is slipping on the runner, the left rear brake is grabbing on the bee and the brake pedal is real soft on the charger. I haven't had time to drive either of the cudas since we drove back from Branson in August. I need to hire a full time maintenance man just to keep these cars in running condition.
Actually, I plan to put the hemi and tranny in the convert as soon as I get the lift free. I need to do that and drive it before I put the front sheet metal on. That way the car will be settled and I won't have to re-align the doors and fenders later. A trick that I learned the hard way.
At least I may have the 63's and the 71 scamp sold. Now to start selling off some trans ams.

hi guys
 i thik it's cause the wing   and nose is what makes a daytona clone so desireable. there a nice 500 grill on ebay right now. all you guys that have a vega plug and are thinking of installing it on a 2nd gen charger. think twice. i'm in the middle of mine now. it doesn't fit without modifyinng the sails. it is not just a drop in. lay the hatch on the back of your charger you'll see what i mean. Rene

Hey, call me. You do not have to do anything to the sails if you cut the plug right. If you do it the way I have done it all you have to do is weld in the gap at the top.

Now wouldn't it be cool to somehow make a removeable window plug that somehow blended in but could be removed without damage to the sail panels? Plus an easily detachable nose and wing so you could have a Daytona one day, a regular Charger the next and a 500 the day after that? There's a project for you to work on, Dane.
