Through sickness and health, my '70 Charger R/T and I keep cruising

I got my driver's license when I was 16, and shortly after, I bought my first car. It was a 1969 Dodge Charger in gold, with a black vinyl roof and a big-block 383. Just after graduating from high school, I bought a '70 Challenger R/T and sold the Charger to a friend.

Great story. It seems you beat the big C if it's been over ten years now. Good for you sir. And though never a Mopar guy I always appreciated the Charger's and Challenger's (and 'Cuda's of course.) of that era. Nice ride.

Congrats on the good looking car!. Love the color on it. After I beat cancer I bought the Supra. A little post Cancer celebration vehicle purchase is a good thing.

Perfect automobile and engine combination to enjoy the Canadian Rockies in. A true survivor from the gasoline and cigarette showroom. Congratulations on your goals !
