    New to Des Moines

    Hello all, I just moved to Des Moines from Nebraska. I joined the forum mostly because I enjoy cruise nights and spirited driving. I tend to drive my cars as daliys so you might have seen a 70 roadrunner in the snow if your from DM. My sig has most of my cars on it.

    Ya, My father was into drag racing in the 70's and 80's. So I'm just carrying on the family business I guess. I just sold my first car, the 68 chevelle mostly because I needed something a little more reliable for everyday driving. the 69 is kind of a hooptie car.

    Welcome to IAF. Not a lot of Mopar guys active around here, so its nice to see a change-up! One of my best friends has a '69 Road Runner back in Eastern Iowa.

    Just another sprayed LS1...

    Thanks for the welcome. I'm into American cars in general, but i like to not see somone driving the same car as me. Mopars tend to be more uncommon, albeit newer challenger stock they seem slower than the comperable stang or camaro. Then again who dosn't mod there car.
