    Long time drag racer, now I'm more into helping my dad with his cars. He'll be 84 soon so I sold my home and moved in with him to take care of him. Mopar seems to be a dirty word here so bear with me.

    He and I have several but I'm unsure if these cars would be interesting to the folks here. I hope they will be.

    1957 Chrysler Saratoga

    This car is the reason I've joined HAMB. Hopefully I'll get some good imput on how to redo this car. This will be my 3rd version of this car.




    Anyhow, It's good to be here and I look forward to meeting you folks.

    I'm in Huntsville. I have a friend in Madison that is a Willis guy from way back. I've got to go work on my '50 Ply but I'll be back on later this evening.

    k9racer, There was a time years ago, that you and I were neighbors. I lived on KellyCem in the mid 80's. You know Roger B ?

    This is the interior of the '57. It's been ~12yrs since I've worked on this car. I started a redo then I met a gal with big thingies and I awoke 12yrs later only to find that my '57 had not redone itself. She said I had to choose between her and my car so I chose.:D

    Thanks for that thought. My dad understood the importance of having a hot rod. In high school my car was a 1971 Barracuda 318, but he felt sorry for me so on my date nights he let me use his 1969 Charger R/T. It was red with a black top, 440 mag with black leather pw/w, pw/seats, cruise, mag 500's, and all that other stuff. I had it rough.:D

    This is his 1958 Imperial that I'm almost finished with. He loves it.
