    grimmeys mistress

    hey guys I have been on here for a while as well as a few other Mopar sites. I am currently on recovering from my gall bladder eviction and figure i will throw my build into the mix. Its a 71 cuda, alterkation front with willwoods, the air bar four link rear with a strange dana 3:73, the cage was custom by a local shop. I am also using the xv chassis stiffening system as well as stitch welding about every seam I could.

    Hey man, I lived in st clair shores for 5 years. My charger was there for the first year and a half I had it (still have a lot of parts in my moms house/garage.....). I wish i would have known there was another build going on so close to me. Did you have Slims do your cage? Parts list for that car sounds sweet. It looks like yours will be done a lot sooner than mine. What are the plans for a motor and trans?

    I moved to saint clair shores about six years ago, I love the peace and quiet so far, hope it stays that way. I was hoping for it be in primer before the winter, but who knows. I have been totally up in the air over the engine trans combo. I was stuck on an injected stroked 400, 727 with gear vendors unit for a while, but those 6.1 drivetrains are tempting and the prices are not to bad either.

    I absolutely loved that city. Im out in the south end of st clair county now. I love it here as well, its just like going up north except i live here every day.

    I did a 5.7 hemi swap into my 96 dakota about 2 or 3 years ago and it was a piece of cake. I can help you with yours if youd like. I am going to use one in my charger as well. I happen to have a 5 speed auto for the hemi sitting in my moms garage still. Its a 4wd model but they can be adapted easily to 2wd if you are interested
