    July this year I will pay a visit with my son to Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and Kentucky.
    First I go to the NASCAR race in Kentucky. Looking forward to it.
    After that I want to visit some hotrod meetings, speedshops, garages, auctions, salvage yards etc.
    Dou you guys (or girls) have any suggestions!
    Also looking for old style hemi parts for my 1940 dodge coupe.
    Hear from you.

    This still a stock car. The other one I own is in construction. It will get a 392 hemi, Dana 60. I will box the chassis, put on a fat man front end and shave and channel it.

    Good choice on the race. If you're still here the first weekend in August check out the Street Rod Nationals in Louisville which will have over 10,000 cars plus hundreds of exhibits, vendors, lots of other sellers, and more....

  16. Dodgie, yep, Dodge was sold here in Oz from 1915, from the mid 20's they were mostly Oz bodies etc on imported chassis, engines etc......from the late 30's all 5 mopar brands were sold but mostly 4 dr sedans with Oz body shells and different grilles, badges, lights & trim etc till the mid 50's then an Oz mix of 54 Plymouth body and 55 Plymouth front & rear fenders called a Chrysler Royal 4dr & Ute till 1962 then Oz Valiants till 1980 when Mitsubishi took over and best not discussed.......lol......yep RHD sometimes a mirror reverse of the LHD.........see the pic of my Dodges RHD dash and sometimes an Oz only rhd concoction............you'll see where my 1940 Dodge has Plymouth fenders,hood, lights, bumpers yet it had full leather upholstery on the seats & extra interior lighting and armrests as the Dodge brand was upmarket in Oz...........that's a nice looking 40 Coupe you have btw.........got any more pics of it?........andyd

  19. coming or going from KY you may go by the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green. Worth the stop even though it is not Mopar related.

  22. Hi Koos

    I visited the US nine times between 1994 and 2016 and for a Dutchie it differs a lot from our tiny Holland. Good luck with your search and bring parts for my 331 Hemi :rolleyes:.
    Where are you from ?

    Groeten Hennie

  26. Hi Koos

    Not really sure what i need, the Chrysler Imperial 1954 came from Heerhugowaard in 2005 or 2006 (not sure when) as a mostly complete car with a running engine so at the moment the engine is complete. I sold the rest of the car but kept the running gear including the chassis.:D

    Groeten from Goeree Overflakkee, Hennie

    On the first Friday of each month, Gadsden Alabama has a good cruise down town and Fort Payne Alabama has a cruise on the third Saturday. These are near the Alabama Georgia line and just south of Chatanooga TN. Many towns have small cruises that could be interesting.
