Hi all,

I am a new owner now. My former wife had 4 different Chargers and now a Challenger.
I picked up a 2018 Knuckle White Challenger GT. I’m retired now and this is plenty fast enough for me. I wanted to get a replacement for my first car from the early 70’s however it was out of my budget. It was a 67 Goat. I wish I knew then what a collector car it would be. BUT, after 2 weeks with this I am very happy and happy that I found this group.

Haha! You and me both. My first car was a 66 GTO hardtop. Bought it in 1977 for $2500. Junked it 5 years later as a $500 trade-in for a shiny new Honda Accord econobox hatchback. Been kicking myself for the last 40 years.

In Chicago on 09/09/76 I pulled over to talk to a girl I knew. As I was getting out I noticed 3 gang members that were after me because I beat up their leader. I see the gun come out and I dove back in and started it as bullets are hitting the windshield. I threw it in reverse, hit the gas as well as sideswiping 5 parked cars. Straight to the Police Station and told them what happened. They told me not to do any Police Report and to leave Chicago. I sold it to a guy who was always asking to buy it and the next day I joined the Navy and was in San Diego that night.

When I came home from Bootcamp I called my friend. He said they followed him home one night and he made it inside. They firebombed the garage and blew up my Goat. Well his Goat. I apologized and he was cool about it. He said I warned him.

Welcome from the ROT. My friend has a very fast 67 GTO which I just rode in Saturday headed to the local Good Guys car show.
