Welcome to the board Larry. Again, it was nice to talk to you and your family in Columbus. Your collection of cars, past and present, is amazing. If I'm ever in New Castle I'd love to come and sneek a peek at a few of them. scope

Thats a funny picture the last time I was in New Castle broad street looks almost like that. JK. Last time I was going through there was on a friday night at about 11 pm and of course all of the kids were out cruising in their cars causing a traffic jam.

...unfortunately, "cruising Broad" has pretty much dried up...a group of people have sponsored a cruise a few tmes in the last year or so, pretty decent turnout, but not like the old days for sure...Top Hat to Howards and back and forth,

Really I figured that was something that would not ever go away. I remember in the late 80's all of the way up to the late 90's that it would take you a good 30 minutes to make one pass and then turn around and come back you would have a good hour.

the local cruising scene was once a rite of passage for those growing up in new castle. it was common to see cars coming in from fifty miles or more away on friday and saturday nights. there were plenty of cars making the loop until the wee hours of the morning. i cant recall which issue it was in, but new castle once made the car craft magazine list of hottest cruising spots in the nation.

i ran across these photos, which were taken in the early to mid 1980's. it had totally slipped my mind that the daytona once wore keystone classics. the fc7 super bee was my first car, and spent many an evening cruising broad street.

i ran across this february, 1978 photo over the weekend. this is the 1969 front end that originally went on the car after the nose was lost. the wing was removed at the time, while someone was attempting to make a copy of it.

parked for the winter, the car was shuffled in and out of the one-car garage, to allow mom to park inside when snow was expected (somewhat amusing to imagine that scenario, all these years later). as luck would have it, a full-fledged blizzard hit during one of the "out" times. it was not long after this photo was taken, that the 1970 front end went on, and the car was repainted back to the blue paint that it still wears.

how's this for progress? two years later, i have amassed the following parts for the car.

1. the front turn signal lamp assemblies.

that's it.

but -  they do have the correct color of overspray pre-installed.

i also came across these photos yesterday.

Hi Ernie,

What a fantastic story, mant thanx for the link!
Real Mopar folks with a historic Wing-car as well!
I think its quite common for the 'XS not XX' title error.
My 69 500 has the same problem LoL! 2thumbs
The Vin tag, dash tag are correct, block incorrect too???
I've never worked at a car factory but I've worked on production lines though.
The mind numbing repetition always causes errors.
Same must go for office workers looking at endless documents with letters and numbers! shruggy
XS,XS,XS,XS,XX,XS,XS,XS,XX,XS,XS,SX,SEX???

Dad passed away on October 17th, so mom is left in what I imagine is pretty rare company as a female original owner. The car still sits as it did when this thread began, which sucks since I had sold my toy collection this summer in hopes of getting the car up and running for Dad to enjoy driving it once again.

With both of my daughters in college, any restoration work is still on hold for a few more years, but I am now dedicated to having this car at the next talladega reunion in four years. For now, it is serving time as a lumber rack/ storage shelf. Fear not, the wood doubles as a protective cover for a rare piece of glass.

Looks like the way my Superbee was stored for some time... before I talked my father out of it in 1979. Hopefully life moves on and the kids can help you get it ready for Talladega 2019!
