'71 Mustang Mach 1 M-code "Soylent Green"
'69 Plymouth Valiant 100
'68 Plymouth Satellite
EDIT: New updates always at the latest!
For better or worse, this purchase required the sale of Disaster Zone (Eleanor/614 HSO), but I think it was worth it.
Welcome the newest member of the fleet - a '68 Plymouth Satellite 318 unmarked police cruiser clone. Nothing fancy and not the best clone (still a 4-wheel drum brake car w/no power assist; ideally it should be a Belvedere), but it "feels" it.
You may have seen it before in the Copcarnet photo galleries - ironically enough, I saw (and drooled) over it 6 months prior to ever seeing it in person, which happened quite by accident (I went to see some Mopar parts for my Valiant).
There's a laundry list of things to do on this one - door seals, driver's door alignment and striker adjustment, tailpipe (anyone have a single B-body tailpipe kicking about?), idles like crap, absolutely NOTHING is tightened down right, dash pad and panel were eaten by the Tasmanian Devil, etc.
But who cares? The rear window lights and Federal Interceptor still work, along with the PA system . I'm happy.
Now to find a BETTER '71 Mustang to turn into Eleanor, grab the Blackmagic Cinema Camera, and shoot a sequel trailer to Gone in 60 Seconds.
