The Feature Mopar is a 1969 Plymouth road runner this month. Our new member Bill wrote up his story here: My love for Mopars started back in 1971 when I bought my 1969 Road Runner. I was a junior in high school, the car had under 20,000 mi and I paid a whopping $1,500 for it, which wasn't bad considering it sold new for $3,200. From that time on I was hooked and part of the Mopar family. Most of my friends drove GM products, and I've always been the type to be different, so for me it was a perfect fit. The year before I met a girl; she was 16 and I was 17 and that was a perfect fit too. So for several years things were good and we both spent a lot of time in my car. I had started college and had to cut expenses. Gas had jumped from .25 a gallon to .33 and there was the first gas shortage and it was being rationed. So unfortunately the Bird had to go since the girl was staying. I married her that April and this April will be our 40th wedding anniversary and guest what .... the Bird is back. Not the exact one but almost. The color, interior and transmission are the same but the engine got better. It grew from a 383 magnum to a 440 6-pack and I definitely don't mind that. All the good memories are coming back for both of us but mostly for me. A lot of important things happened for me in my Road Runner. Oh, and by the way, the Mopar family never left. They're still here and have welcomed me back with open arms. It's good to be back!!

I formed this club in July 2002 with the idea I just wanted a few more cool Mopars to park my 1969 GTX beside. Over the years this club has grown to be known in many states, and also other parts of the world. I have very simple rules in our club with no dues. If you think you want to be a part of us simply contact me. I will be more than happy to send you the club rules to become a part of this "Private Club". Thank you, and enjoy our Mopars! We do! I am Smilin' Ed the President.
