Definately got that one saved. Don't know if I'll use that one as my desktop or not, but probably in the future.

  You know it made Icons' text hard to see, but I think there is a way to make text highlighted...  I'll probably just print it out for my kid (we make Charger print-outs for his room)...

   Mine does look better without the prop rod holding the hood up.My excuse is that I never was going to let it go this long as it is going back stock.It just never gets done. brickwall

Ah one of these days you'll get her back to stock Al. The hard part is done, you have kept ahold of it for this long. The easy part will be finding time to put it back to stock.

How many more years do you have until you retire then Al? It shouldn't take that much to take your car back to stock appearance. Look at it this way, you already have a very easy 500 to recognize. It definately stands out in a crowd, and is of course one of my favorite colors on a C500 B5 blue.

Thanks ,what I hope to do is ( restore) it this time,at least I don't have to deal with rust.I want to powder coat some stuff and finish the under side and fix the spots that it got from riding on top of the guard rail. Technically I have 9 years till I can bail out of the collision industry but I want to do the time restoring Mopars the right way, hence the move to Raleigh NC.,long story.  Al

Your car will look great when you get done with it I"m sure of that. The pictures you have on your website of how it was before the accident look incredible. 9 more years of work huh? Thats not too bad, I think I have about 40 years left before I'll be able to start thinking of retiring. The way my life goes I'll be working till the day I leave this world.

Thats why I want to get the car done before I get my ticket punched and yes I think I too will rock till I drop,its a sign of the times.also I have to get the body shell done as a 500  stock car replica.Its almost ready to start putting the cage into it.Also that is where the sheetmetal is going when this 500 goes back stock.Since the 500s slipped through the cracks the first time I am going to do my part to make sure they don't this time.

What motor are you planning on using in your C500 stock car replica? I don't think I've ever seen any information on what your intending to do with that car. Other than using the front end tha is currently on your 500. Are you going to paint it up to resemble someones race car? Or just leave it as blue?

 The book is pretty much open on this thing from a hemi and a #3 white ( 500) car to a drivetrain out of a Craftsman truck series Dodge shruggy and a 358 cu. motor.I have been thinking about a Hybred so the parts situation will be easier as I damn sure arn't going to pass it off as a REAL race car.Its a way to tell what these cars were built for.

Are you talking about a real 500? Or was the comment about a #3 500 in refernce to a race car with the #3?

Either way I'm sure you'll do an incredible job on it. and I'm also sure tha you'll drive it and enjoy it.

   Yes a #3 loose replica car.This is to save a parts car shell.When I get going on it again I will get some pictures up and scare the hell out of some people.

Ah one of those cars that scares people huh. Pretty rusty? Or was it wrecked and pretty mangled? One of those cars that people would have passed on in the 70's to mid 80's but by todays standards is repairable.

Look at it this way, if it is that rusty it will be lighter, hence your cloned race car will be lighter. Smiley


I can't think of who drove a #3 car back then.

Ray Fox had a #3 car with a few drivers didn't he?  Freddy Lorenzen and Jim Vandiver come to mind.
