More About The Ongoing Tragedy of The Dodge........... where we last left The Man , he had discovered some disturbing news about the Coronet. The good news is, the motor is at the shop getting a new top end and should be done by the end of next week. This makes The Man one happy boy!
This also makes The Man one happy boy.....

That's a bran'smackin' new steering wheel, horn ring, and horn button for the Coronet. It is replacing the original cracked steering wheel that was missing the ring and horn button. The original steering wheel was red, but The Man ordered a black one from Paddock to match his black and red interior.

My mom did all the upholstery work on this car by the way, and The Man and I painted it. We're pretty darned proud of it! You can see a bit of the seats in this picture and you can see the ratty old steering wheel.
The Dodge is a 1966 Coronet. It has a 440 with a mild cam, aluminum heads, a Holley 750 double pumper carb and runs about 500 horses. She's a screamin' machine and we have lots of fun in her!
I'll leave you with a short video, showing what we do when we take her out cruisin'! We also have a video on YouTube, if you want to check that one out. I'll be making more videos once we get the motor and the new tranny back in her. Then all we will be lacking is a new rear end and possibly frame stiffeners! ;)
Till next time..............GOD BLESS FROM GOODWIFE FARM!
