all started back in 1991. We were driving down Broadway
when we got to the corner of Broadway and Coal and there
it was!! With a big For Sale sign in the window. I didnt
know what it was but I knew it was a Mopar and I knew
I had to have it. So with $900 and a tow truck, I got
it. After engine, clutch and brake work, it was ready
to run. So we drove it for three years, but it soon developed
a powerfull taste for oil. It was like the little engine
that could! It just wouldnt give up.
1994, it met up with a Chevy pickup that took out the
whole front clip and bent the frame. But I still couldnt
get rid of it so in 1995, I just parked it and started
collecting parts. After six years, a lot of hard work,
and money, it become the Plyminator!!
have to give a lot of special thanks to Rick Kaufman who
helped me a great deal. Also, Art Pachecho, Eric Zahn.
For all the parts and advice. Robert Howard for the custom
machine work and advice. Bill Hubbel of Benders Exhaust
for the excellent job on the exhaust system, and finally,
my wife for putting up with me while I was building it.
car is almost finished. Interior, window trim, and a nice
audio system will top it off. Hopefully this year. And
finally, thanks to the Mopar Muscle Club of NM for all
the help and advice too.
