1954 Dodge Coronet Review
Great Old Car — I purchased this as my first car in 1994. My Dad and I spent several months restoring it. I had a lot of adventures in that car, and I miss it. I traded the car title for title on a 1966 Ford Galaxie, and the guy who got my old Dodge took a cutting torch to it and chopped it up trying to make a convertible hot rod. I bought the car back after my father passed away with the intention of rebuilding it yet again. The car itself has a 241 Red Ram Hemi V8, and though it is a smaller engine, it has no problem at all moving that massive car.
Pros: Hemi engine, rare car.
Cons: Positive ground on a 6 volt system makes it difficult to work on.

Not What Your Grandma Had In Mind For Her Car

This wagonis unbelievable! It has factory air and runs like the day it was born. I've driven it on a couple of 2000 mile trips without a single issue. I think it deserves a set of custom wheels. C... Read More

I Built This
I got this car from my brother and completely rebuilt it a couple years ago after pulling it from storage, where it had sat for over 10 years. I love this car, almost as much as the roadrunner I used... Read More
Big ass Dodge. I liked it, even if it wasnt a Chevy. Big and ugly, so people got the hell out of the way when they saw it coming. The 318ci motor was not bad, but not as strong as a lot of Mopars. Read More
