1999 Plymouth Prowler

This is her red 99 Prowler (as opposed to purple, yellow, or black which were also available that year). Not much to say about it, they didn't offer any options and this one is stone stock. Sure is fun to drive, though!

The fuel pump wrench I made to change the pump, which was getting tired after 70k miles. And the internal pump wiring that is what was tired...yikes!

1970 Dodge Dart

She got this car July 15, 1980. It had the 225 engine and 3 on the tree. In the mid 80s we put a 360, 727, and 8-3/4" in it. We also installed carpet, and found a couple copies of the build sheet. And an IBM card from the Windsor Assembly Plant Production Parts Shortage System. In the early 90s it got a pieced together 340, and the paint and interior were freshened up. It's due for a makeover again, the odometer is on it's 4th trip around!

This is a recent picture of the engine. The block, intake, and exhaust manifolds are gennie 340 parts, the rest is 318-360 stuff. A/C is now gone.

The interior is getting tired, we're planning on fixing it up soon.

The trunk is starting to show some rust, the rear window has been leaking. The car is finally inside now that we have enough garage space, so it won't get any worse.

what does this mean?
