" no option taxi cab interior and I could talk about it all day"... me
too. I love stripper big engine  B bodies. My point is only that
we don't tend to talk about 'em much... nothing wrong with it... but an
objective survey would reveal that conversation here is 90% of the time
full size 1965 to 77 C bodies, eh?  I don't think that can really
be denied, intent notwithstanding... and an "all Volare site"... 
now we're talkin' ;-)

So does that mean I can stay in the `He-Man-Woman-Hater's Club' ? I could duct tape a coupla cardboard fins on the rear quarters if it helps. :-)

We're all bodies.
 
Yes.  Many of us are large, wide, and round.  Not too many small types here - with some exceptions.
 
Oh, you were talking about car!  My bad!!

I would agree, but it's more by accident than intention.   We've also talked trucks, trains, boats, and every now and then AMC cars.  A bunch of us came here from a C Body site which is why the Cs seem to be prevalent.

We seem to cotton to them too, at least I do - I'm BIG, and I need a BIG car!

And no, I don't have a Die-Nasty... whew!

Yes, but is not the C-body car the general focus of interest here?  It is most certainly not Forward Look or E-body or B body or A body cars... not to exclude them, but typically there's not much of interest in those topics hereabouts, if one were to actually peruse the threads over time. And there are plenty of other venues for those focused on Es, As, B's... just saying...no exclusion intended. 
WE WELCOME ALL MOPARS 1950 TO WHENEVER
We do have a broad collection of members from all over the globe with all kinds of Mopars.
 
It just happened that some of our members moved over here from the dark..er Dock side about three years ago.
Polaraco,other,including myself were among the biggest posters there.
With a lack of moderation and some conflicting opinions "over there",Polaraco fired up Fins.
We are more laid back here.
Plus a good team of moderators.
Not as anal as  the Forward Look and no parental guidance needed to make attitude adjustments like  over on the moparts site.
We have a good number of members--including yourself--that own a full sized mopar that was built before 1965.
The 57-60 Finned 4 door hardtops are among  the sweetest rides I have seen.
 
Our site has a good base of "hands on" members do "been there,done that".
Pretty much all are on the same level of understanding.
I had seen so many times people (other sites) just log on to a site looking for all the answers to be right there in front of them.Same people who use a mail order catalogue and a credit card to "restore an old car".
 
We are here to help as long as you can help yourself.
 
The cars members here have do not have the same support from the aftermarket like  the A/B/E cars and as a result the tech articles tend to be more creative and likely involve a C body.
I love a 68 Charger,or a 71 E body.it just happens that I own a couple C's.

So, you're saying it actually should be "MoparFANS" then? ;)
I've got 4 pair of fins in my garage, one plucked chicken wagon, a C-body and a B-body '67 Charger.
I'm working on pair of fins "nr. 5".

No! :) My wallet can't keep up with the acreage all these cool cars take up overhere in my garage... Don't make me buy 'it' with an offer I can't refuse... ;)
Fins "Nr. 5" is a '59 2dr HT Dodge. And I really have to get rid of 1 or 2 cars already to still have some room to move left.
I did show it to a good friend of mine though. He 'should' be getting into some fins actually but he still has his hands full with 2 projects.
