Hi, my name is Steve. Been visiting Allpar many, many years. Have been mostly reading and posting in the News and Rumors section. Proud to say I'm a 3rd generation Mopar guy. Grandfather started with a Dodge Brothers and his last was a 1969 Monaco. My parents got his next to the last car, a 1963 Dodge Custom 880. That's the car I learned to drive on. My parents had Chryslers, Plymouths and Dodges. And a Rambler wagon. My Dad had a 1954 Plymouth sedan, with a stick of course, about the time I turned 16 . So, I also learned to drive a stick. My first car was a nine year old 2-door 1963 Three Hundred, followed a year later with a 1964 300-K that was still almost like new. That was followed by a 1969 Charger R/T a couple years before the Dukes of Hazard. And a 1962 Valiant V200 sedan for better gas mileage. Went on to own 6 more Chargers, my favorite being the first of (4) 1973 Chargers, a Rallye with the 340/auto. Also had a red, 1971 Challenger. Have owned many other Chryslers, Plymouths and Dodges. Anyway, was a car nut many years before I ever learned to drive. Loved the tailfin era Forward Look Dodges. Now what is most relevant to this site is that in visiting the local Dodge dealer in 1969, saw a poster on the wall of a Dodge Charger Daytona on the wall. To this day I still see that as the most awesome factory production car ever. I was 14 going on 15 at the time. I began watching NASCAR on TV whenever it was on. And I subscribed to Southern Motorsports Journal. My first favorite driver was Bobby Isaac in the bright red #71 Dodge. I rooted for him all throughout the 1970 season and was ecstatic when he won the Championship. Now I know everybody's wondering how I felt about King Richard. Well, he was my 2nd most favorite driver. I was and still am a Dodge guy first and foremost, and Richard was in a Plymouth.
