Aren't those hood scoops off a Duster or Dodge Demon?

Sounds great from the back!!  Sounds like an exhaust leak in the front.  :-(



 
Yes, Steve, those are Duster scoops.  I still want to see a 6-pac scoop on a Fusey.
 
Finally, I keep saying I would love to drop a 383 HP into my Newport in place of the 440.

That's what three inch exhaust sounds like on a Mopar! It kind of has that GTX look to it.

Took the Hurst to get the emergency brake cable replaced with one that's not in 2 pieces.   Some gangstas pulled up at the gas station and were impressed with the car, even to the point of taking pictures and shaking my hand.    Even the gangstas appreciate a fine ride.

Kirk the brake guy said somebody ran the emergency brake cable over the frame, so every time the brake was applied, the frame was helping to cut the cable in two.   More work by Einsteins corrrected.

There was a '69 Polara Convertible on EBay just over a year ago, that had scoop on it...coulda been a 6-pack scoop, like on the Blade '68 Charger. It also had a Go-Wing on the trunk like on a Challenger. I wish I had kept some of the pics. The scoop looked good, but I could have done without the wing. It had buckets and a console shift. Really good shape from the photos, and they were asking $16,995. Maybe someone from here remembers it, but it was before my MoparFins time...

Yes, I was in Cole's yesterday to have him look at the Stratus.  (It was hit by a jerk in LA.)  I saw your name on the schedule.  Kirk told me he fixed your car.  The Grem goes in on Tuesday to get the e-brake cables matched to the rears.  There are currently none!  Glad you got yours fixed.

Agreed, but what country is it in?  I didn't think they were speaking English.  (Either that or I need my ears checked.)
