    Hey fellow members, I'm new here and want to introduce myself. I go by North Penta Star, this indicates that I'm located in the north (north western Alberta) Penta Star referring to the Mopars that of which we speak and not any prowess that I may possess.
    I have been collecting dodge products for years and have always had a soft spot for the 72-92 dodge trucks. I have just acquired a 1974 Dodge stepside (utiline) with what may be a package on it. It has a black base paint job with blue stripping work and says Sidewinder on the tailgate. I was wondering if any of the members here may recall this package. The truck was built in Warren Michigan and the work may have been done as a commissioned piece.
    Thanks in Advance guys, will post my progress in the future.
    Jeff

      welcome, great project. Dodge did several limited edition trucks in the '70s, can't say I've heard of a Sidewinder.

      What engine and drive train? Maybe it laid down snaky rubber trails.
