Newport for sale - maybe....

'63-66  Darts are cooler looking, Valiants were sort of dumpy until 69 or so... imo, and later Swingers,Scamps, Dusters, Demons etc are cool too, they mad a lot of Swingers, Scamps and Dusters with those slanty 6s.

Yes, I do like the '70s A Bodies, but they go for a little bit more.  Also like the '68-9 two-door dart; that curved rear glass just grabs me.  Probably grabs water to - HA!!!

Ya I drove a B-5 blue '68 Dart GT, buckets, console &  auto on
the floor Slant 6 for a number of years, 40 mi each way into Baltimore
suburbs from the country when I was teaching.. until the wife borrowed
it and went and hit a COW with it coming home from night shift at the
hospital!  Poor car, I loved that thing!

Oh yeah, she was fine, had her belts on and had slowed down a lot
before she hit it,  mashed the front end in pretty good... it
could have been fixed but we opted not to, sadly, it was replaced by a
Pinto wagon!

Not a bad little car, really, despite their reputation, but we missed
the Dart... after awhile got a low mi '72 Swinger from an old lady,
that eventually Dear Daughter inherited as her first car to drive to
high school!



Man all this talk about /6s makes me really want another one...
Chris... keep yer eyes open!! My transport guy lives in Phoenix! (and
bringing my '64 Dodge here soon!)

Chris, I've seen the car once - at Bob's Tire in Chico.  The owner actually lives in Paradise or a little above it.  He says he drives it all the time - I've seen it once.  Although one of my church members saw it because they asked me if I had been in Paradise on a given day.  I said, "What color was the car?"
