I'd like to show this to people who question why I think my car is going to be valuable some day. :cry:

At least the parts are getting sold off and the entire cars aren't being crushed as is!

Dang, that's exactly what I was trying to point out by posting the CL ad link. I have had people laugh when I've told them that I think of SRT-4's as modern-day Road Runners, GTX's, Dusters, Chargers, 'cudas, etc. I can remember when those vehicles were thought of as :quotes: disposable :quotes: and most of them were trashed- look at the attention they get now. :D

With you on this. But not all cars get that way with age.

I wonder how much he'd want for one with a running engine/trans so I could swap it into my SXT. Seriously in the next few months I'd be interested in getting one for that.

You're referencing cars from 40 - 50 years ago ... it will take 30 more years for the SRT-4 to be that old.

^^Exactly, just like what happened with the cars I referred to.

:laughing3: ... Maybe both of our SRT-4's will be future "barn finds" :thumbup:

IDK, the "barn finds" ones are usually pretty eaten up when discovered. I think that ours deserve to be kept in a warm, varmint-free garage and driven with love often. :D

How is your varmint issue this year, Gramps? I know you were having an issue last year with the garage being in the position it is.
I should get ahold of this feller, I wouldn't mind a decent set of skirts and caps. Color wouldn't matter to me

I've done the same thing this year as last (dryer sheets and mothballs) plus added good, old-fashioned mouse traps baited with peanut butter. Also had a new garage door installed last summer. Nothing sighted this whole season, thank God.
