but not new to Mopar forums. I put a post in here a little bit ago but deleted it as it was certainly WAY too long. Those of you that know me from the /6 site, maybe a couple others certainly know what I mean. I found this site as I saw someone's post on Ebay, and recognized the parts as prev. advertised on one of the other mopar sites. I E mailed the seller via Ebay, and was told about this place. I had a story about my Volare on the deleted post but at this point thought it was T.M.I. (too much info) for now. My car's a bare shell, mostly sand blasted, 48K orig mile car. and in the rotisserie I built for it myself. Orig /6 904 column, P/S, M/B, no A/C, bench seat. Done, it'll be electric blue, tan gut, 90s truck Magnum 318 (thought I was sure I wanted to leave it EFI'd, but with the carb'd intakes becoming available, I am no longer sure whether it'll be carb'd or EFI'd. If EFI it'll be a factory Mopar based pre 96 truck setup, with an MP brain.) I've had way too much time these last 10 months, as I've been off work on disability, but my car's as dormant as it was 2 years ago, when I took it to the body shop for its 1st stage (line up replacement RFframe rail, finish welding it into place once lined up, paint the underside and eng compartment, plus a few "little" things while its there) I'm tired of seeing it sit dormant; I'm planning on getting it home, where it belongs, by Labor Day (2 yr anniv. to when it 1st hit the body shop) It still has not had a damn thing done since its been there, but I am tired of the promises I've continually had. and I continue to acquire parts (though not much inthe last 3-4 months) that I think I might need, as the gettin' becomes good, even if that part of the build is "down the road a ways". I'm 41 and have a definite plan for the car (Cruiser NOT a race car) but am now afraid to build the car as I see it in my mind, as it seems now like I have too many "kid's car" ideas. Maybe not. And NO, Nick if you see this, (my 15 year old son) I AM NOT BUILDING This car as your 1st car! FIND YOUR OWN! Lotsa pent up frustration, not being able to work. I had a chain saw kick back on me in 9/07, and tore up my shin bone. Metal hardware inside my leg now, and all. No clues as to when I can again work, went to Dr., again yesterday and no news. I have had my volare since I was 35, and had an identical twin to it back in '88-89ish, except for it being an Aspen. Same year, same color (body; different interior) This rendition is about 1/3 the length of what I deleted, and largely different, though still about my Volare project. I won't yet tell how I came to own this car (I didnt in the orig either) but I will say that when the car became available, my wife's reaction surprised the Hell out of me! I'll tell that later. In my orig., I had basically detailed the finished plans, and maybe gave away a few too many "secrets". You'll find out some of them, as those parts of the build get here (and I find out whether they will actually WORK before posting them, I wouldn't want to have someone else try my ideas, and not have success, then be PO'd at me) I will say this; some of my plans may have to change, on account of my now bum leg, so I don't even know if I'll be able to build it as I originally planned I may have to keep the car a "wussy" automatic, rather than the 5 speed I have here for it(I will be pissed if not) NO, IT IS NOT CURRENTLY nor WILL IT BE, "for sale" so please DO NOT ASK!
