Mo-Par don't Go Far....

23 posts in this topic

Alright, yes I know it seems I've been slacking on

getting the last and final trivia question posted...

between buying my '59 Buick, getting going on the

valvejob on my Super 88, dropped the heads off

at the machine shop just this after noon, & trying

to get my eBay store going again after dropping

the ball for about a year....

Anyway the point is here's something I whipped up

today for you guys, it's pretty easy for the Mopar

fans here... so I think.

Which one of these cars is NOT a product of the

Chrysler Corporation? Only one of these cars is

NOT a Mopar, if only by name.

Well, "F" is a Mercury Monarch.

I haven't seen one of those (two-tone blue in your pic) Charger Daytonas in like forever. My mom had a '77 Charger, dark blue/light blue landau roof/white vinyl with blue carpet interior with a 318.

A. Chrysler 300

B. Dodge Challenger

C. Chrysler Imperial

D. Dodge Mirada

E. Chrysler New Yorker

F. Mercury Monarch

G. Chrysler Cordoba

H. Dodge Charger Daytona

I used to have a '76 Mercury Monarch...

My first car. It was

A) slow (6 cyl, not that the 8 was fast)

B) ugly (the scourge of rust)

C) unreliable (sold it when it started breaking down about every other week.)

D) uncomfortable in anything but perfect weather (heat & AC didn't work, and manual windows)

E) inefficient (don't think I measured it, but it was bad...)

... and I loved it. First cars are like that.

A few years ago I bought a 1979 Ford Granada 2-door for $35.

I drove it around a bit, & I was getting ready to demolition

derby the beast, I saw no redeming value in it. Even the BOF

& RWD did not make it appealing to me. It was one of the

worst handeling cars I've ever owned, My full size 1959 Buick,

1964 Olds & 195,000 miles 1968 Camaro all felt like BMWs

with track tunned suspension compared to that old POS Ford.

Anyway I ended up frying my MSD box on the Camaro about

a month before the burnout contest (Worcester Summer Nats)

so I decided to take the Granada instead. The car commited

suicide on the way to Worcester, at 70mph it was screaming

for dear life on Rt.290 and the oil pump ended up $h!ting the

bed. That old stright six basically put a gun in its mouth.

I pulled off after the car stalled, popped the hood and as I

undid the wingnut for the telltale white noxious smoke poured

out of the intake & carb.

I ended up driving my other beater, the 1983 Firebird with a

crate 350 meant for a truck, and doing the burnout contest

in that instead. (sold the Firebird that night for $700)

Still have the hood ornament & jack off that ugly old Granada.

I sold to a guy who had it impounded and it was crushed.

Too bad in a way, it really would have made for a good

demolition derby car, not meant to be I guess.

How about first 1hp per cubic inch for a domestic car- optional in the model line...?

How about first 1hp per cubic inch for a domestic car standard for a model line....?

B looks like a Grand Am, and that's really not a good thing for the Challenger name.

Sig car is a '59.

Off the top of my head, it's either the 361 or the 383 that was shared across the B/RB families.

383 cubes it was! 4.25 x3.38 and 4.03 x 3.75 (SBC stroker guys notice the RB version?)

When Nascar banned the 426 Hemi soon after it debuted Richard Petty went racing elsewhere.

Do you know what he went racing in? Which racing venue?

Not a big racing fan. I recall this only vaguely: Petty left Mopar for 1 year, then returned (Hemi was initially banned after '64 & I know he had a '66 Belvedere). Don't recall to what he defected to.... was it Ford?

I think he raced a Barracuda and got into an accident with it, killing someone.

Correct again.

Outlawed, the 43jr car, which went into the crowd and killed an 8 year old spectator. I don't think Richard drag raced again.
