Hey everyone this is MoparDan I've got to start this over because the old one got deleted by mistake...anyway my second car was a 1987 Chrysler Fifth Avenue faded and dinged but reliable, a long story short I only had that car for about three months...a few beater cars later I found a very nice '82 Chrysler New Yorker Fifth Avenue Edition that I ran for almost 2 years and more then 43K miles before the 318 (with over 300k miles) just couldn't go anymore, a few more beater cars I found a 1987 Dodge Diplomat SE nearly fully loaded-even the sunroof, sadly this car had been very neglected by the past owner and after about a year and a half I couldn't afford to keep her going...on a side note during this time I met a girl that I'm now engaged to, I'd pick her up in that Diplomat while we were dating and she loved the velour bench seats, and now I've got a rust-free one family 1985 Plymouth Gran Fury which I've added the Dip's seats, a custom paint job (Firethorn Metallic) and pin stripe, a factory AM/FM/CD/Tape stereo from a Dodge Caravan, Infinity speakers, '70s fender mounted turn signal indicators, and backseat reading lights from an early '80s Lincoln. I also have the build sheet (found under the driver's seat when I swapped the seats) the window sticker, the invoice and a ton of old paperwork from when this car was new. Its been quite a ride for me with M-bodies and I can't picture driving anything else

Backseat (once again Dippy SE seats and Lincoln reading lights that look pretty good in there in my opinion)
