    Born early enough to enjoy the 50's.
    Grew up with all the Mopar muscle.
    Have had many many Mopars, bought an A-12 right out of the showroom in 1970, had to have my mother co sine the loan a whole $3800. Met my first and only (still together) wife in 1970 and she was driving her first car a 70 Challenger vin # JH29G0B165088 (where is it now?)
    Currently own 8 Classic Mopars and one "excuse my language" 48 chevy, in our family since new with only 45K original miles.
    Avid Racquetball pool player and deer slayer.
    Quit work @54 and never looked back.
    Built my own house with the wife's help in 2005.
    WE are CURRENTLY in good health.....can't wait for spring.
    All good.

                      How do you keep that truck that clean in Pennsylvania? Or are you in a county that uses gravel, not salt?

                        Morning
                        I have a heated garage that I set up with water proof walls and two floor drains.
                        I never let the salt on it for more than a day.
                        Wash and wax on a regular basis.
                        I do get a lot f guys .....when they see it and I am around say how nice it is, then we start up a Mopar conversation.

                          Tune complete.
                          Actually spun the tire backing out of the garage.
                          Old Plugs looked good. All looked whiteish.
                          No black carbon.

                              Got to thinking about the plugs.
                              Should the all be whitish?
                              Indicates a lean burn.
                              So I started checking for a vacuum leak.................Found one, big time. (picture upon request....LOL)
                              Running from the intake to the firewall canister, completely sucked shut with many cracks and brittle.
                              I'll drive it for a while and pull some plugs.
                              Also did a test on the MAP Sensor it should be 5.1 volts mine checked out to be 4.98 in and 4.48 out so I figured it was close enough.

                              Reminds me. I need to look at the new one just to make sure it did not do the same thing.
