Wow!

That's a sharp looking Roadrunner and an instant show winner. There's probably not another one that clean and untouched on the face of the Earth.

You should drive a GT. You wouldn't say that then. Now, I'm not saying there's not tricks you can do to a 318 to make is pretty quick, because there are. I owned several over the years of my youth and most of mine were faster than people thought they were going to be!

Gee I wonder if we took a poll asking what you would rather have....a 74 Plymouth Road Runner like the one shown here with 7400 original miles in excellent condition or any year PT GT. Can't imagine what that poll would look like. CHUZZ, your comparing apples to oranges and your oranges are soft and mushy. I'd almost bet my annuity that your name would be the only name on the PT side of the list.

I honestly wasn't thrilled with the (rental) NA PT that I first drove in 2003 ( sluggish ) but I find the Turbo lite is plenty fast enough for everyday driving.

I must say that looking at the dash pics on that ebay ad has turned me a bit sentimental (My family was mostly Mopar the whole time I was growing up...)

Yep. When I was looking at those photos, I was imagining that "old Mopar" smell. Newer cars just don't give off the toxic organic vapors like they did back in the 1970's. The smell in a vintage Mopar was unique too. And it takes me back. Tune in a little Johnny Cash on the single-speaker AM radio and I'm there again with my big sister riding down a gravel road to the skating rink on a hot summer evening.

All, I'm saying, Crewzin is that if you line them up side by side and run a quarter mile straight up, that the GT would blow the doors off that car. You want a REAL Road Runner. Start with a 68 with even the 383 Commando. THAT was a real one. But, we all have opinions. We don't have to agree and that's fine with me. I buy cars to drive, not look pretty and go to car shows with.

...and what I'm saying is that drag racing from stop light to stop light maybe takes up 1/2 of 1% of a cars life (unless your an 18 year kid with his dad's V8 back in the 60's) and lookin good, showing off and being admired wherever you go is the other 99 1/2%.

Are you saying the race you just mentioned with the GT against the Road Runner, the GT is stock? No mods? If not, then as you say, you can easily mod up the 318 to keep the doors on.
