    Well I figured id update you guys, I havent gave up on the Spyder, its just been sidelined. I habe the short block on an engine stand but nothing has changed. Ive pushed the car out and tarped it so maybe after summer I'll get back to it.

    In other news ive made some good choices in the past month, I traded off my 300 and got a new daily, someone traded in a 98 stratus with the 2.4 thats the new rainy day car. As for sunny days these are my two new rides.

    I thought it was kind of funny I said sunny day cars but the plymouth is in a puddle haha. Anyways tell me what you guys think. For the next 3 weeks the plymouth will be in the garage getting all the maintenance done that is needed. I'll be taking it on a 900 mile round trip in 3 weeks to a carshow.

    I love old cars. I need another one sometime soon. The Plymouth is probably not one of the popular ones with tons of parts available for it though, I'm guessing.

    Ludachris,
    great aftermarket availably on engine parts from what I can tell. not so great with everything else haha, I do have leads on anything I may need but currently im just driving it how it is. I do have some parts coming for it in the mail, 1 is a 6v tach because is so quite I cant hear how hard the engine is running at speed, and 2 some springs out of a ford van and some 2 inch lowering blocks to give it a nice stance. next set of parts will probably be on the exhaust, its about 800ish for some split manifolds mufflers and duel pipes.
