Car of the Month, January 2010: Jon Mickley’s Too Blue Two

Too Blue Two

This is what I call my Too Blue Two. A 1972 Plymouth Road Runner and a 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8. Mopar muscle, 37 years apart.

Both cars were bought new, and both are still owned by the same person, me! The Road Runner was a daily driver from 1972 to 1990. It was parked until November 2003 when restoration began; restoration was completed December 2006.

The Challenger was ordered on February 23, 2009; I took delivery on April 27, 2009. It is basically a daily driver, although as a retiree I don't do that much driving.

The Road Runner is driven when the weather is nice (no rain) to seen and be seen. I do local car shows and cruise the Sonic Drive In, where I often get 50% off just for the car!

Now the problem...if I wait 37 years to buy my next Mopar muscle car, I'll have to live to be 113 years old!
