Hah, Dave, Mopar guys are notoriously tough on other Mopar guys. The editor of Popular Hotrodding wrote an article about it a couple of issues ago and at first I was all offended, and then I realized that unfortunately many of them really are that way.
They want things original or no way, and they're notoriously vocal about it, to the point where they put down fellow Mo-fans. I cannot STAND that mentality.

And I didn't realize there was that element among Mopar fans. There are a lot if modified cars in the Mopar mags.

True, but its the people "on the ground" I see that get upset about it.
I put bucket seats in the Dart because that was what I wanted and a few nights later at a cruise night a guy told me I had "ruined the car" because its "really just best to keep things original, nobody is going to want modified stuff." I said, well, I appreciate the thought, but I like the car the way it is, and that's what matters because I own it.

That's why I bought a base 440 model, 318 powered Coronet coupe to do my full Pro-Touring build on, and its why I'm happy the wagon is a measly 318 car. Not special to anybody but me!

It'll happen again, mark my words. At least you've got a response ready for the haters!

My dad's one of the "factory know best" guys. Every time I encountered a problem with my little mod, my dad would remind me how I wouldn't have had the problems if I stayed stock.

Started working on the air cleaner assembly base drains.

The six pack crowd has parts that go for hundreds of dollars. I figured PVC would accomplish the same thing. I spent $7, not including a length of heater hose I grabbed out of a box.

Thanks. Not that it will get much water in through the scoop. I don't drive it in lousy weather.

I 100 % agree with what you said . What I firmly believe is "build it for you" "not anyone else" . ......... As long as it's a Mopar ! :D

I said I would never drive it in inclement weather either but if you really drive the car it's inevitable you will be caught in the rain. I have been caught in some NASTY rain storms over the last six or seven years since the car has been done. None were planned that way. And X2 on what Bear said!
