Title: Well a little Hello from Denmark.
Post by: Per Therkildsen on April 17, 2009, 07:21:54 AM
Hello Mopar friends.
First i have to say thx for this great site, lots of info and help here.
 

I am from Denmark, and i bought my first real car October 2007, a 1970 Plymouth Satellite 4 door all stock 318cui.
And i wasnt fixed on the brand in the start, but as i found it by a dealer in Kentucky, i was lost, it just had to be that car.
Now i have been driving one season in it, 7738 miles good year, and no problems at all.
And i just love it, its a rolling slow resto, its just to expensive to do it all.
 
But if you want to know more, just ask. (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif)

Welcome!!
I hear that Mopars have a very strong following over there!!
Love to see some pictures.
Like any old car that is being driven and enjoyed,it needs a little "something" that needs fixing,LOL
318 drivetrain has been proven time and again to be very reliable.
It is good  to know that not all 4 door Satty's are being chopped up to restore a Road Runner or GTX!!  (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif)
Any questions feel free to ask.
We even have members in Europe that can help as well when you need it.Some have converted their cars to propane to keep fuel costs down.

Well i have uploaded some pictures in my profile but i guess people cant see them.
 
Actually this one is the only one i have been able to find for sale, and i know there is only 1 other here in Denmark, and that is also making it special for me at least.
 
Me and My Satellite.

and then one of the inside.

And then the Engine 318cui runs like a dream.

I hope thats good, and i have been reading that Moparfins need stock pics of all kinds of years, so feel free to use them or post and i will upload some others, if you want some special scenes, angles or what ever.

Why do their cars always look better than ours? (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif)

Well i bought it over by you, so i guess no body wanted it over there.
 
And its green, but i dont know if it will stay that way, its not like its a rare model or valueble
 
Maybe the ac - no power brakes make it speciel (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif) but ill say the brakes are fine, and it can stop hard, but still disc is better, there is not so much adjusting with disc brakes.

I have a 71 Fury over there somewhere. . .Sjak can tell you.  I loved that car. . .My wife hated it. . .  It was very close to that condition.
 
This is Polaraco

Steve, I haven't talked to Martin for some time, I didnt attend much carmeetings after 2007, and we're not exactly neighbours either. In June, the dragracing starts again, maybe I'll meet him there (if I'm not on holidays at the race dates)

really good looking original car with the best drivetrain ever made (IMO!)

That dash is the cleanest Mopar dashboard ever made - also IMO!

Sorry I missed welcoming you Per...You have a beautiful old Satellite there. Similar color to my 70 Fury...I believe there was 2 greens that year and you have the darker one...I like your's better actually...Very nice...I hope we can get to the bottom of our "hard starts on warmed up 318". Please correct me me if I have your name wrong....Per...(I looked it up in your members profile) That is not a common name in America...Again Welcome!

No Problemo Bob.
 
And thx for the welcomes.
I know its not a name you see often over there, and its actually funny to hear when US people say my name.
 
I was in Las Vegas 2007 on Nellies AFB, and that was just funny when they had to call up the names, poor guy.
 
Was supposed to go to Goose bay AFB Canada this year but that got cancelled, well ill have to see what happens 2010.
