Do you think a unibody 'vert will be stronger than a full framed 'vert? Especially since the 66&earlier Imperial frame rails are not exactly skinny?

I have yet to hear of any full size Mopar getting twisted up because of too much power.
My opinion is that it's a really moot point.
I think it's more of a situation of finding any car, separate frame or unitized,  that is still intact.
If you find one, my gut feeling is that it will hold up to whatever ponies you hook up to it.

Agree, but a little overkill never hurt anyone

Just do it...and when the doors don't close anymore you know it's time to beef it up

That car looks remarkably a lot like Sjak's daily heap...

My trusty old "Vauxhall" has been running with the Check Engine-light on for over a few months now... How's that for reliable, eh? LOL

I just turned 165,500 in the 2000 Neon.....Thanx Ma Mopar!

The factory CD player (which played when IT wanted to)  didn't fare so well though....a five lb. sledgehammer obliterated it after it rejected my new Rush CD....for the 100th time!

I like my new Sony!

Of course not! It's a clear sign of an analytical brain trying to find the cause of the malfuntion in the device
