    Well I finally got of my butt and put my car in the garage. In August of 1967 I purchased next years charger (not knowing what it would look like). Although I was looking for a 383cu with goodies it was cheaper to get the R/T. $4,300.00 for the 440 stick. I raced the car for 4 years with the fastest time of 10.3 @ 132mph. The car has 29,000 original miles. I've started the tear down and all things considered she looks good for her age. I am taking pictures as I go and hope to start posting them.

    Oh how I wish I still had my childhood toys. A '68 R/T was my 3rd car, but my first NEW car.
