Larry E 1965 Dodge Coronet 500 2dr Coupe

A Man's Dream

Since I was fifteen, I dreamed about having a Dodge Coronet. I could see myself cruising down the road- opening it up and eluding the police.

Then forty-eight years later, there she was! On the internet- only one hundred miles away!

I grabbed the checkbook and my wife.

I headed east on I-94 to Plymouth, Mi.

When I arrived at VanGuard Auto Sales, there she was sitting right by the front door. Chrysler red and black vinyl roof. My heart almost stopped.

Could this be happening to me?

They put it up on the lift and everything looked great.

We went in to do the paperwork and they asked us to do a video with the Car .

A few minutes later I was driving my dream car west on I-94! I could not believe it.

About twenty days later we roared into the Mopar Shoutout car show at Martin dragway 2014.

This was my first carshow and the Coronet was in the Top 20 cars!

Then about a month later the Coronet took Best in Show - Stock car and Runnerup- Best Chrysler Post-war at Vicksburg Old Car Festival!
