Brought a Couple of Cars Home This Weekend
Got a 1971 Washington State Patrol Dodge Polara and a 1969 WSP Plymouth Fury. Both are real police cars with 440 engines. The Washington State Patrol had very heavily optioned cars as well with such luxury's as power seats, AC, Power Steering, Power brakes, and a remote trunk release. Might just keep the 71, but the 69 will be for sale soon, contact me if interested!

Found this in a junkyard on the Washington Coast, a 67 Dodge Dart 2 door, working on getting this one. The yard also had a 75 Chrysler Town and Country Wagon that still had it's 440 and a 75 Chrysler Newport they were going to crush that looked almost new, brings a tear to the eye.
Car Hunting This Weekend
Found this Duster sitting in a yard in Central Washington.

Road Trip Day Four Part Two (LAST PART!)
I had heard a rumor of a 1973 Dodge Polara ex-Washington State Patrol car in Olympia, Washington and since we were going through anyways we decided to check it out. Here is a picture of the front of it, it looks like it has been sitting for a while. It is for sale, might be working on getting it.
Road Trip Day Four Part One
We got going pretty early in the morning and made really good time going home. It is a cool trip going up through California by Mt. Shasta and up through Central Oregon. Here is a picture of us about to leave from Redding.
Road Trip Day Three Part Three
After the show, with a new car in tow, we decided to get some In N' Out Burger since I have never had it before. Have to say it was a good burger, but not quite what everyone says. Dick's in Seattle is very comparable and cheaper.
We got out of town about 7 PM and made it about 20 minutes north of Sacramento before we hear on the radio "my car is getting a little hot." We pull off at the next exit and the Coronet had thrown it's fan belt, so the water pump was not turning anymore. Good thing we caught it early and it did not damage anything. It took two trips to the parts store (including the second one when they were about to shut the door in our face!), but we got the right belt and made it to Redding, California that night with no further incident.

Road Trip Day Three Part Two
So, we were just about to get ready to leave the show and one of the guys with us disappears. We find him over on the other side of the show looking at a car. I had seen it earlier, it was a four door 1967 Coronet, but didn't think much of it. Well, after I went over and saw it my mind changed! It ended up being a 67 Coronet 500 with the SE package, which none of us had ever seen before. Apparently you only got that package when you got a Coronet 500 in a four door. The weirdest part is the SE symbol is the same one used on the 69 Charger, very strange. The car was also a 383-4 Magnum motor, very cool! Of course my friend ended up buying it and driving it home. Here is a pic...
