Falling For Dodge, One Super Bee at a Time

 

We’ve been hearing some great stories about how fans of the Dodge brand first came to know the Mopar name. Last time, we heard a tale of love lost and found again with Bruce’s story of a pair of Coronets and a smoking 2009 Viper ACR in the same beautiful hue of blue. We’re huge fans of the Coronet R/T for obvious reasons, and the Viper holds a special place in our hearts, too. This time around, we’ve got a guy who got the Mopar bug from another awesome muscle car. Take it away, Johnny.

 

“Back in 1980 when I was ten years old, I saw my first 1969 Dodge Super Bee. From that day I knew I was gonna have me a Dodge someday. I did, a 1969 Dodge Coronet with 440 & a 727 trans, and now I have a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 with 4.7L magnum. I Just can’t stop loving those Dodge cars! Thank You for making them!! And I will have me an old Dodge again someday!”

 

Well, Johnny, now that you’ve got a solid tow vehicle, there’s nothing stopping you from finding that perfect project Mopar. When you find it, shoot us some pictures and let us know all about it! As for the rest of you, keep those stories about how you came to be a Dodge fan coming. We want to hear them all. We’ll pick a handful to showcase here, too, so keep your eyes open for more great Mopar tales.

    Those old Super Bees or Coronet R/Ts are tough looking.  Speaking of Super Bees RLD, are we going to make another one?  At any rate, I think you need to release the Redline Charger that you have in the Photo Feed.  That is a tough looking car and would go down in history as one of the coolest looking four doors ever made.  I still think it would look even better if it had an air grabber flap that opened up with the sharks (tiger) teeth on it. Who cares if it is functional or not, it just looks cool.
