Talking I maybe getting a Dodge Charger

I hope i am able to get it. it all depends on if the guy goes through with the trade. Its a 1972 Dodge Charger SE with the 318. I always liked that body style and its almost just like the one on Burn Notice but it don't have the hood scoop and the 440 But the 318 should be better on fuel once its done. I plan on restoring it doing alittle here alittle there.

I have to pay for work, so a little more conservitive...I can look at stuff and tell what is wrong by the way it runs but have no clue when it comes to fixing it, so I tell the shop. Thanks to TimW I know that Toyota was ripping me off and have a nice honest shop now.

How would y'all like to find this car?

an original, 5800-mile '68 Hemi GTX that's been sitting for decades in a garage, and will be sold as part of an estate sale in early June. Just when you thought all the really cool cars had been found, another pops up.
Oh this is for the Ford guys 8000HP Boss TF Engine
That thing looks like a beast.

Yes, the Boss is back, and in a big way. Try 500 cubes of nitromethane ingesting hemi-headed mayhem – fresh off the drawing boards at Ford Racing. That’s right, Ford themselves have re-engineered the vintage Boss big block series, and with the help of John Force Racing’s John Medlin, injected it with what they term “performance enhancers.” This is the first all-new Top Fuel engine for the NHRA in years. Take it one step further - when was the last time an American auto manufacturer designed and built a dedicated drag-race engine at all? Especially one that lays down and estimated 8000HP!
And i have to agree on this.

So now we have the traditional Chrysler Hemi-based fuel engine joined by the new Boss Ford fuel engine. All we need now is a GM design, and we’ll have a new nitro-powered muscle car war on our hands.

Well its been put on hold for afew weeks. The guy is taking a trip out of town and won't be back for a week or two.

Maybe once work is done on it maybe it will look as good as this one.

Was looking in auto file to see if the timing belt had been replaced (someone told me to look for anything over $600), so sorted and noticed that the same thing was replaced like three times, asked in SB what it was. TimW told me it should not have been done, yet that often. So went and got a credit, plus changed mechanics. Company I work for owns a fleet, now take it to their shop. Amazing, repairs are nil now, oil changes misc...but not a biggy. They even drive me back and forth to work if I have to leave the car.

Many here like cars and know what should be replaced, when and how much it should cost...you could just post if unsure about a repair.
