1969 Plymouth road runner. Gene is a new member to our club, and I welcome him with his road runner coupe. Be sure to click on the logo, or the car to view more photos of Gene's bird. Below is Gene's story of owning his road runner:
I bought the car in 1986 for $2400, I'm the 3rd owner, the car was built in California. The original owner was Hondas Auto Leasing Inc. The dealer was O.K. Haas Inc. in Santa Anna California. The 2nd owner was someone in Tuscon Az. The car has a built up 383, bored .030 over, mild street cam, heads are ported and polished and stainless inserts. Edelbrock high rise intake manifold. Holly 650 single pump carb, Hooker exhaust manifold with a Flowmaster exhaust set up. Transmission is a 727 automatic with a shift kit and stall converter, 3.23 gears in the back. The Car is an amateur restoration, done by friends in Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin. The road runner is a matching numbers car and has only 59000 original miles.
The car also wears 15 in. wheels and has Wildwood disc brakes and is also an A/C factory car.

Members keep in mind I have a club meeting October 24th. It is a private club meeting so I won't be advertising it here. This is a reminder to you that you need to contact me ASAP about attending. This year's October meeting will and should be a very memorable club meeting. I think it may be one of our best ones in the 13 years I have been trying to get Mopars and people all in one location at once. For Vegas Mopars at least. We don't come out to play often.

I formed this club in July 2002 with the idea I just wanted a few more cool Mopars to park my 1969 GTX by. Over the years this club has grown to be known in many states, and also other parts of the world. As of this date we have 367 vehicles and 228 members in our club and we continue to keep growing! We have very simple rules in our club with no dues. If you think you want to be a part of us simply contact me. I will be more than happy to send you the club rules to become a part of this "Private Club". Thank you, and enjoy our Mopars! We do!
