Took you long enough! What? Two years? So your down to two Corvettes now? I hope you never sell the Blue Monster. That is my favorite Corvette of them all.

I'll probably be selling the 67 Dodge next. The 68 will stay as long as I feel safe driving it...it's also the most fun  to drive car I've ever driven Roll Eyes

I thought you were giving the 67 Dodge to your son, Scott???

I'd keep the 68 and give it to Scott or someone who would appreciate it when your gone from earth, (hopefully not for a long time). That is to nice to let go. Too many years, blood, sweat, tears, fun. Just enjoy looking at it when you can't drive it anymore. If it becomes hard to stick shift, replace with a automatic, (it was rare, but they had one back then) or a modern automatic.

Scott & I own the car 50/50. He'll get 1/2 of the cash ..not to bad for a 0 investment on his part.  The Dodge is to expensive for him to operate & work on.  I hardly drive it anymore  5-7 mph on premimun gas is pretty expensive for most people...but I have to say it is fun

congrats Alan!! sure wish I was in a position to buy it back, it would have sold long before now. if I recall you were the 7th owner of that 1977 and what I found really special when I was looking that the 4 previous owners before me kept the car basically stock. I'm sure you did some things to it to improve it's drive ability but the 8th owner is getting one super nice mid 70's cruiser.

Yes they got a  lot nicer car than when I rec'vd it. Complete new front suspension, new alum radiator, new carpet & converted Fiero leather seats, reconditioned elect window switches. Repaired heater control cable, all new vac lines & hoses & flushed with distilled watere & new anti freeze. Installed new mufflers on the cat back exhaust to get rid of the rumbling when you take your foot off the gas.  Complete rebuild of the carb...it ran like a new car. Plus new tires.  Installed a period correct luggage rack & a rear sway bar. Yes he got a much better car...probably not many 77's out there in that condition
