Catch Me if You Can

What is your opinion of PCV catch cans for modern Mopar musclecars? There is a lot of debate over at the Challengertalk forum. Many good pros and cons. I’m a cheap-ass so if I don’t really need one I’d like to know. Yeah, PCV pullover

The Beinekes at Bonneville

By Gary Beineke (www.71wingcars.com) Pam Beineke ran the fastest time of the Wingnutz duo. Gary didn’t have a chance to best her when engine problems shut him down. Guess who washes the dishes now? BONNEVILLE—SEPTEMBER 12, 1971:Harry

FrankenDart

Here’s one for all you readers who complain about all the “show car” Mopes we feature in our mag. This one is real-world—it’s Mike Saunders’ barn find 225 slant-six ’67 Dart GT convertible. Mike and his son Stephen dragged it home back

Home On Wheels

Now here’s a Mopar fanatic the likes of which we’ve never seen before. Steve Makinson, from Sweet Home, OR, tells us he bought his ’70 340 Hemi Orange Challenger with the A66 340 Performance Package back in 1972 for $2100. The clock

Sealed With A Kiss

My 440 with aluminum heads has had a consistent problem with intake manifold gaskets leaking and sucking oil. I have tried gluing the paper six-pack gaskets on, all kinds of gasket sealer, and so on. I’m tired of taking this apart. Is

Daily Driver

This ’62 Valiant rises to new heights of insanity with a too-tall blown 605-inch Hemi. Story • AL DENTE + Photos • TheBRUNTBros The Hemi’s snorkel intake is good insurance against the dam breaking, the creek rising and any other epic

Rear Ended

I read in an online magazine than small block 1966–’70 B-bodies “almost always” came with the 8¼˝ rear end, and that big-blocks “came with 8¾˝. But I had a 1970 Charger 383 2-Bbl that had an 8¼˝ (I bought it new, leftover, in 1971), I also

Horny

My 1969 Coronet (base) needs a new horn switch. I am told there are two different switches, one for use with the horn ring, and one with the small center-cap button. I need the one for the button, but seem to find only the ones for the

Chipped Up

I have a question about paint colors. My 1970 Challenger is B5 blue, “Bright Blue Poly”. The fender tag calls it “EB5”. Now my buddy has a ’72 Dart, also B5, which the ’72 book also calls Bright Blue. His fender tag is missing, but he
