Too busy driving the damn thing to stop and clean it!
Mom had me moving furniture with it last Saturday,LOL!
I did a garbage run on my lunch hour to boot.
I am putting the brown eyed girl to work.

Atta boy!!!

I do the same thing when I have the T/C insured, use it for all my local running around.  People are always floored when I load up the stuff for a recycling/dump run and then go get groceries and load them in that back.  Heck I brought my disasembled 331 Hemi back from Seattle in the wagon!!

 Guess it's a real time warp back for them to see an old wagon being used as it was intended.

I get strange looks when I load the back of Polaraco at Lowes too.  I watch guys try to put half what I put in a ricer and laugh

Can't beat a big ol' Mopar wagon for sheer functionality... beats a
mini-van any day.  I miss having one.  I may have to talk to
Chris one of these days....  I really LIKE that coming-out-the side-dual exhaust look!

The Hamtramck Registry is without a doubt, proof that saving every scrap of documentation on our cars is of the upmost importance.

Ok.After almost two weeks of ownership,I am prepping for a trip to Joisey!
Going to Steve's with wheels for the "plucked chicken' and a pair of pre-smog 360 heads
Did the oil change,and did a drain/refill on the 3 speed gear box.
Lubed all the linkages and she shift smooth as butter.
new tires,exhaust,hoses.
Tank full of gas and a can just in case plus fluids.
Oh,and Jesus on the dashboard.
Leaving work early to hit the road to beat the traffic,I hope.
TTFN and will chime in when I get there!!

Thanks,Brian.
I left work early and hit the road at 3:40 PM (how appropiate for a Mopar forum,LOL)
Syracuse was a friggin parking lot on the I-81 and cost me some time and a tired left clutch leg from all the stop and go.
Once out of there,it was smooth sailing but I had to make two pee stops and no other problems.The weather was excellent and I drove the whole way down with the window open.
The CB was busy most of the time for entertainment and also info on the accidents,traffic,deer and "bear" reports.
Arrived at Steves at 10:15 PM.
So roughly under 7 hours.
I usually do it in 6  .
We figured out the Waygun is averaging between 23 to 25 MPG and I was driving 65-70 MPH.
I am really impressed with the car's performance and fuel economy.

Wow....23-25 mpg is nothing to laugh at.

Guess that dual exhaust, and new"er" carb and a good tune up makes a big difference.  What gear ratio is the rear?
