    Although I'm a FORD fan through and through, I would be very happy to own either of your rides. Its just a pity that they are so rare on this side of the pond.

    Nice.
    Is the Dodge a factory bodystyle or a homebrew conversion? I've never seen another like it.

    They're both tough looking cars Ray.
    I've still got the Plymouth and will have until the day I die. I have too much fun in it and it holds a lot of good memories to let it go.
    Sounds familiar re: projects. Along with the Plymouth undergoing some work, restoring the Allard Skilton dragster and building a nostalgia funnycar, I still get tempted by other stuff.
    You can't have too many toys, you're only here once.

    It's a 2-dr Suburban station wagon with the rear windows panelled over.
    I think Chrysler missed a trick there, definately competition for Chevy's Sedan Delivery and Ford's Courier Delivery.

    I think that car, the mustang went onto be the Stones car. Burned to the ground. (Timetravel will be along shortly to put me right.)

    I'm not involved with the resto of the first Allard car, I own the Alan Allard Hemi dragster that later passed to Clive Skilton.



    I also owned Martin's '57 DeSoto for a while, you wouldn't believe the condition it was in. I'll take some photos to the Drags for you. He's still around but not really into cars any more, we go for a night out every so often.

    The Ranchero ended up in Manchester with a friend and was being restored as a push truck for a dragster.
    With the amount of nostalgia dragsters being built in my garage we'll be needing some more tow cars off you soon.

    Get to the Drags Ray, it'll be good to see you again.
