Yeah, I'm pretty excited to get the car back here. Whitney lost interest in the Duster around the time we had our oldest daughter Adelynn, and it seems like she would rather drive a modern SUV then a 2 door slant 6. :( So my plan is to sell her car (which I was driving anyway) and then drive Seymour's 62 street car. I've missed having a 4 speed car have always loved Seymour's street car.

A road trip is coming!

Congrats Ryan!

Although, you know, it's okay to leave a 62 Plymouth for the rest of us...I mean how many can you drive at once?

Thanks!

Well, I haven't figured out how to drive 2 yet, but I did have the blue 62 race car on the street to test one time, and I quickly realized that wasn't the best idea. So the only thing I could think of, was to buy another 62 valiant for street use :lol: Whitney was ok with me selling her Duster to replace it with Seymour's, so here we are! I'm sure some of the local slant 6 guys will help race it at mason dixon too.

Seymour should write a book about his adventures in that car. It would be epic! :mrgreen:

Yes, he he drove it from Minn. to Maryland ( close to 1000 miles one way!), bolted on slicks and proceeded to run mid 13's all day. Then he drove it all the way back home! He really does have to have an iron behind!! :D :D That ain't no Cadilac seat in that thing! Oh yeah, and I forget what he said he got for mileage, but it was pretty good for a car that fast! 23 sticks in my mind! Yes Seymour you are an inspiration to all of us!

One year he drove to St. Louis with his daughter. Hotter than billy hell out. Raced at Gateway on Saturday, then left to run Drag Week. His daughter was like 8 months pregnant too. Much respect to both. :shock:

yeah, but when he did that probably was in his 60's and 70's... not really young!

Seymour is an inspiration!

3 yrs ago Seymour and I drove the car to Portland, OR from Minneapolis, MN and raced at the Woodburn Slant Six Race. I drove back and I flew home. Stupendous trip! Maybe Ryan and I can do that someday....

The cherries were amazing, right Seymour!

That Pizza Hut Pizza is the best Pizza EVER!

Lou, I'd love to take a roadtrip/Race sometime.

Looking forward to picking the White car up later this spring.
