I know Tony and the Mrs. moved to the DC area a little while ago, he was last active July 15th.  DC is a very busy place(kind of from the NOVA area myself, my entire family lives there)) and with the move and trying to adapt to that culture(meaning hustle and bustle) can be very tiring I imagine.  I hope they are doing well and are adjusting to the new lifestyle of the busy DELMARVA area.
Just like everyone, we all get busy at times and this might be a little lower on the list of things to do when life happens.  I'm just glad I always have this place to come back to, it's like an old friend, well 5600 of them anyway. icon_smile_big

Hi Guys,

No I have not sold my Charger, Mike is right, the Mrs. and I moved from Arizona to the DC area, NOVA which stands for Northern Virginia - Annandale to be exact.  The short answer is that my Charger is stuck in Arizona, the long answer is that while the Mrs. and I are making more money then we ever have the cost of living here is so ridicules that I can not afford to get my Charger here (and people think living in Hawaii is expensive - not compared to this place!!).  The command that I work for (I am an Army Civilian), is slated to move to San Antonio Texas in the within the next 1 to 2 years and some could be going as soon as within the next 6 to 9 months.  I am going to try to be one of the first to get out of there, then I should be able to get my Charger and start working on her.  Well that is the long and short of it.  I do appreciate your guys interest as well as encouragement, just keep happy thoughts that I can get to Texas soon...

Actually it's not all that bad living here, if it weren't so damn expensive!!!!!  A few years ago my wife said she wanted to work at the pentagon, I told her no way, well a few years later here we are and if the cost of living was, well, liveable I wouldn't mind staying here for a few years (but only a few then back to Hawaii), but like I said in an earlier post we make pretty damn good money but out of each pay check after paying the bills I have btween $150 and $180 bucks for gas (and we all know how much that costs), and any other incidentals (like medicine - I am getting older), so by the time the next pay day comes around I am close to $0.00 and that SUCKS!  No money left for the Charger or for my Hemi Ram..

Welcome to the east coast.   pity

D.C. is right up there for cost of living, as is any big east coast city. Think NYC, Boston, Philly,
I hope it works out for you and you get back to where its affordable. But really, is Hawaii that much cheaper then DC ?

I lived in Hawaii for 13 years and made no where near what the wife and I are making now and did just fine, had money to play and to put into my toys.  We talk to friends in Hawaii regularly and gas there (on Oahu), and gas there is about the same as it is here, housing is cheaper, food prices are about the same, but you have no heating or cooling bills and that's close to $200 a month - so yeah, it is cheaper to live in hawaii then to live the the DC area.

I sent you a PM about your Charger project.  I did basically the same thing, and even did a rocker replacement too.  Check out my site and it'll show you that even regular guys like us can indeed, do this type of work.  2thumbs

Hey Dave, thank you for the reply and I did a quick look see at your website but promise to give it a good look over later (after the honey do's are done).  Yeah I think that if we take our time and ask the right questions we can get it done, you are living proof.  I will be moving to Texas sometime within the next 12 to 18 months and will be able to get my Charger then and start working on her.

Thanks,
Tony

Hey Silva, I'm in San Antonio. Do you know where you will be yet? I am on the NE side. I have lived here since '82. Give me a call when you get settled in. I can help you get familiarized with the new town and give you a heads up on waht or where to avoid. You will like SA as far as cost of living goes, but it is friggin hot here.

1fast charger, thank you.  I will not be there until next summer, wish we were going sooner!  I don't have a clue when we will be moving there other then "next summer" is what my command is telling us.  I don't mind the heat too much, I grew up in the central valley of cali where it gets 110-115 all the time (with no humidity of course), and my A/C works great in my dodge Ram Hemi  yesnod...  We will have to stay in touch so I will have a ready made friend and fellow MOPAR man when I get there.

Thanks,
Tony

Tony, don't know you but I have repaired cars like yours in the past by myself...It can be done..Bout the only advise I can offer would be the fact that try not to look at how much is left to go, but how much you get done at a time. Before you know it, it will be to the point to where you kinda "Try and forget" how bad it was in the beginning...Just remember when a car is fixed from this state of disrepair, there's no better feeling than seeing the eyes of those who wrote that poor Charger off...With AMD now on board, there isn't a car out there that can't be saved with enough time, money, and patience...There comes a time when you are in so deep that it really doesn't matter how much you have in the car, you'll never recoup the "Investment"...Afterall, I know you didn't want to spend the next 4 years working on your dream car, but in the end, I don't think you bought the car looking to try and recoup your investment anyway so have fun and if there's anything I can do to try and help out, feel free to ask brother...If you do pull this off, it will be a huge feather in your cap...

Cooter, thank you for the kind words.  Long story short - the car is in Arizona and I'm in San Antonio Texas (by way of DC), anyway after my Mom's passing less than two months ago I have decided in her honor I am going to sell this 69 R/T and get a 68 R/T which is the first car I ever owned and was bought from her after a bit of talking. 

Tony, don't know you but I have repaired cars like yours in the past by myself...It can be done..Bout the only advise I can offer would be the fact that try not to look at how much is left to go, but how much you get done at a time.

Thank you guys for the posts, I am still here and have lurked around the forum from time to time just haven't made any posts. 

I do believe that HLPAG has been put out of business, well under that name anyway.  The last time I looked for them they were gone, hopefully for good but crooks like them usually just change their name and keep on screwing people!

Thank you tan top, She was a good mother!

the only thing I've really done to the 69 is section in the rear frame rails, that's all I could get done before I had to leave Arizona for DC.  Now I'm in San Antonio so the Charger is still a few hundred miles away.  I need to talk to the friend who is storing it for me and get it on craigs list or something.

Patrick, I haven't seen the car in three years now but it's sitting in Arizona so I think it hasn't gotten any worse - and it really couldn't  shruggy

bull.... Great advice!  The next Charger I will physicaly put my hands on it and not just trust pictures and some clown over the phone telling me lies!
