I'm I'm not gonNA take on the project like this so I think it was probably the recycler. Anyway this guy from same area Apple Valley calls me up. He's a tow truck driver and he's like a he was yeah a I I know that car seen that car up here stopped trying to buy that car that guy wouldn't sell it for years and years, and he's like, how did you get a hold of it and I'm like it was in the recycler He's I can't believe I. missed it.

You know he's listing off the one hundreds and you know some bodies like Darts and Whatever Who wants a dart when he can get chargers all the time for not? Exactly. Exactly. So unlike No not interested. He goes well, I got a I got a sixty nine road runner and I go. He goes with doesn't have drive train in it, but you know it's five blue and. I go. Sounds interesting. I'd be interested in that and he goes I. Go dude this car is rough. The seventy is rough 'cause. I've really like seventy seventies on my favorite. Described everything wrong with the car.

"We are still cooking with gas on this podcast and I have good news. We have more episodes of direct connections coming. I've been making a lot of good connections with people and I've been talking to a lot of folks about getting them on the show so we're going to keep that going but for now. I got a high performance heritage episode for you so stick around and let's get this show on the road this week. Project of the week was sixty nine. Dart. Gts three eighty three car. Posted on Wednesday may six at nine. Am Let's check out the at one thousand nine hundred sixty nine dodge dart. Gts Three Eighty three twenty five thousand South County nineteen sixty nine dodge dart. Gts This is one of the only four hundred eighty eight nine thousand nine hundred sixty nine gts three three seven twenty seven cars made. It has no rust and has never been rusty very well cared for and a rare big block version. This car was a show Carson's nineteen eighties and as such. The underside is remarkably clean. It is road ready and any modifications are minimal. The addition of gauges tack etc to make more driver friendly titles status is listed as clean. Okay so this isn't the normal restoration project that I usually share for project of the week. This car is actually a really good driver. Quality car and the seller claims that the car has been a show Carson the nineteen eighties and judging by the pictures. I believe him. The trunk floor is remarkably clean. I would like to see this person to see if it's ever been repainted because the paint shows very well at least in pictures and we all know that pictures on the internet or kind of like a but from what I see it is in really stellar condition. Especially if it's been around the block of time you know the seller claims. That doesn't have any rust and it looks amazing as far as any. Mo- from nineteen sixty nine. Chances are if you look at a original car. The trump is going to be pretty toast on most cars. You know when you talk about survivors. It's tough because you know. How do you define a survivor? I define a survivor as a car. That's never been touched. And if it has minimal modifications can be made to bring it back to one hundred percent original this just really clean and I think for twenty five thousand. I think he's right in the ballpark there because like he says in the ad any modifications that he's made can easily be reversed and the car can be reverted back to completely one hundred percent original condition and original parts. Which would you know? Increase the value and at twenty five grand. I would imagine that this car if it was one hundred percent original survivor. I think it would be fair to say that. This car is hovering around thirty thousand dollars now. I know a lot of people go thirty thousand for an a body. I see guys complain about a bodies for fifteen twenty grand. You know that are nice and I've seen cars that are equivalent to this one. Maybe a little bit better north of thirty thousand dollars. I think this car would be a great car for somebody who doesn't want a complete project. Car has a little bit of cash that can make something happen in the twenty twenty five thousand dollar range and want something fun to drive. That will actually accumulate in value. This is an investment car. You know how much you will gain in that investment. I don't know if I were to buy this car now. Don't take this wrong way seller. If you managed to listen to this I would return it all the way back to stock. I would take all the modifications that have been done to it. I'd Tuck them away but I would definitely return this car to as stock as possible. Because that's what good a shape this car is in and I think it deserves to be returned back to its original condition. Now that being said the modifications that have been done to. This car were tasteful. It doesn't have twenty inch ghetto wheels on it. It doesn't have a big giant wing on the back of it doesn't have anything that I would deem incorrect like if this car had the fiberglass six pack hood that my car has I'd be like all right that's got to go. You know we gotta get the Power Bulge Hood on this thing and go that direction. It's a great car for a great price and I think it has a ton of potential especially for somebody who like I said doesn't want complete project wants something that they can enjoy and if they choose to do so bring back to factory original so twenty five thousand dollars will get you in nineteen sixty nine dodge dart. Gts three eighty three car. Now it does not say whether or not this car is numbers matching but let's go ahead and assume that the cars numbers matching and if that is the case then twenty five thousand dollars in my opinion is a good deal if you can get this car for twenty thousand then. You're getting a really good deal. I wouldn't have been surprised if this car was posted for. Twenty nine thousand to be honest with you and I want to see that price all. That's crazy because I don't think like that. I like to think in the future. You know if I buy this car for twenty nine thousand now. Is it going to be worth twenty nine thousand in five years if the answer is yes? Cool than I haven't lost or gained if it's worth thirty three thousand then I've gained if it's worth twenty five thousand in five or ten years then I've lost if I bought it for twenty nine thousand. You see how my mind works so this car I think is great and anybody. That's looking for less of a project more of a driver. Something that they can show and have a good time with on a Sunday. This car has drive me written all over it enjoy me. It's a big block a body that has great investment potential. And for that reason I chose it for project of the week so that was project car of the Week. Remember no mo par left behind. It's time once again for listeners. Stories and this week we have two stories one sent in by email and the other was a voice mail that was sent to me that I thought was pretty funny. Let's start this off with the email that I got from Joel. Laughlin here is Joel Story. Hello Chris I really enjoyed the latest podcast. Kudos to the two young men that went Mo- part despite their father's objections I believe that real people are more passionate about their brand than Ford or GM people. That's why we object to a chevy engine in a car on the other hand. We are a tighter community willing to help a fellow part personnel. I grew up in Orlando Florida. My mother's family was all GM. My Dad's family was mostly Mo- part but my dad was the only Mo- par no car person. His uncle had a fifty six chrysler. New Yorker Saint Regis with three fifty four. Hemi in May nineteen sixty eight. My Dad traded his fifty eight Plymouth Belvedere for a new charter. The next year my uncle bought a beef five roadrunner around that same time. My Dad needed to go to the dodge dealer for something. My younger brother and I went with them. We walked into the showroom floor. Were mesmerized by the coolest car we had ever seen. It looked like my dad's charger. But it had soobee knows in a big spoiler on the back. It was red with a big black stripe on the back with the word. Daytona stenciled in the stripe weekends. We're usually spent in my uncle's house watching dolphins football or Richard Petty digging it out on a NASCAR track. When I started junior high. My Dad would drop me off at school on his way to work. I had an hour before school started so I hung out on the library. They had hot rod car craft magazine's I would read them from cover to cover in. Read them again as well as any book the head to cars motorcycles or planes in nineteen seventy seven. I was fifteen years old. I got a fulltime summer job at the place where my dad worked. My uncle had pain body shops with several different partners over the years. One of his former partners had a used car lot on that law. He had a sixty.
