Default My project

Ok, I'll start a real thread in this lonely section

Here is my project:

1957 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer D500, 2 door hardtop.

The D500 was the high performance version of the Dodge. It came with a Hemi 5.3L V8 and HD shocks and a tag on the trunk lid. It was the Dodge equivalent of the Chrysler Letter cars, Desoto Adventurer, and the Plymouth Fury (Christine from that movie/book by Stephen King about a car that comes to life and kills people.)

I bought this car in 1999 after it had been sitting for 10 years after it's original owner had died. I drove the car from Florida to Wyoming and back. On the way back it started running badly and I parked it for the last 12 years. I have now started restoring it. BTW, the problem w/ the motor is that a few lobes on the camshaft were wiped out. Now the motor is being totally rebuilt.

This stuff is huge in Sweden and Norway. My home town hosts an annual event where a large part of the inner city is closed off and is only accessible to "veteran motors" (cars older than 30 years I think), probably 95% American cars. My father is a nut for Mustangs while I'm partial to the Charger.

If you ever get this one finished I'm sure one of the ~10 veteran car magazines in Sweden would love to fly over and write an article about it.

WHen I was 15/16, my mate and I turned two decrepid 1972 Austin Kimberleys into one. We then rolled it down a steep hill .. writing it off. We knew it had no brakes, but figured (incorrectly) we could "flick it" 90 degrees at the bottom of the hill and slide to a stunt-man stop.

Despite being an early 70's car, the Kimberley looked like a 50's Chevvy. Such were the times in Oz motoring.
