    The Clean Air Act of probably helped us breathe better, but it also killed the muscle car momentum that had been building for at least a decade. His first car was a Dodge Super Bee.

    I memorized how to read the serial numbers and learned everything I could about Mopar muscle cars. When Russell graduated college in , he got a job that entailed driving 2, to 2, miles per week. My buddy Randy Feagle and I would spot these cars sitting around in driveways and garages. Remember, this was in the days of the gas crisis.

    The cars were just sitting around, ripe for the picking. But I was buying cars 10 cents on the dollar. It was around this time when Russell found our featured car. The owner and I got acquainted. He was a Ford guy, but he loved all the old muscle cars. He would let me look around his yard and buy parts.

All three were made in August , very early in the production run. For the rest of the model year, the four-barrel motor was the top dog available in the Road Runner GTX.

    I took the hood to a swap meet in Charlotte, North Carolina. A man came up to me and asked me what car had that hood. Russell immediately put the hood back in his truck and headed to the yard the next Monday. Louis, Missouri, plant G. What happened next might go down as one of the great Mopar buys of all time.

    Upon purchasing the car, Russell began researching its history. One well-known Chrysler legend denied that the car had ever been built. When that Chrysler official was pressed, Russell was essentially told that the car was bogus.

    Undaunted, he continued to search for answers. As the car became more widely known among his Mopar brethren, many attempted to buy it from him. One phone call led to the acquisition of a genuine set of three N. Amazingly the carburetors had originally been designated by Chrysler for installation on the Six-Barrel motor.
