This Car Is An Amazing Piece Of Timeless Technology — I like the looks, the power, and the crowds it draws. Everyone who stops to check it out has the look of I want that car. Possibly the most feared car of its day, and today it commands the respect of an old leader who pioneered the desire to be king of the road. There are faster cars on the road today, but there are no cars that match the dream of a true hemi road runner.

Pros: The classic looks of the Road Runner are timeless. Powered by the massive hemi engine, this amazing machine turns heads where ever you go. The unmistakable lope of the hemi beckons young and old alike.

Cons: The hemi engine was designed as a race engine, and accordingly needs a great deal of tuning attention. It will go from 0 to 100+ in a heartbeat, but stopping doesn't happen so fast.

1968 Plymouth Road Runner — the road runner is a great looking car that with the right engine under the hood had more than enough bark to back up its grunt. also the horn is absolutely hillarious it is made to sound just like the meep meep that the cartoon road runner always shouts at the cayote. gas mileage is a little lax but i turned my road runner into a track car so i never really drove it on the road

Pros: High performance and good looking

Cons: bad gas mileage

1968 Plymouth Road Runner With A 440 Under The Hood — The car's hood says it has a 383 but it was a screw up. It actually came with a 440 that my dad had the six-pack pistons put in and a bigger cam. It has a high rise intake and a 800 cfm double pumper holley carb. Its got 396 in the rear and a 4 speed automatic trans with a shift kit in it. It has performance headers that go into 2 mufflers and thats it. My dad also rigged it up so the mufflers can easily be screwed on and off so when i feel like waking up the neighbors i can. Hell with the mufflers on its loud and a beautiful sounding car. It's all original except for those normal upgrades. The interior and paint is all original. It's makin around 425 horses. Just a rough estimate. Dad has owned it since 1973 and is giving it to me.

Pros: Great torque and power, all original, and a great running car still.

Cons: Its steering is a little loose, and theres a short in the wiring for the horn i cant find.

11 Second Road Runner — 68 roadrunner with 440ci, everything imaginable done to the internals of this motor, pushing 500+ horsepower. 3 on the tree with reverse manual valve body and 3,800 RPM stall converter, full 3" flowmaster exhaust, 12" hoosiers

Pros: faster than any car you have been in. trust me

Cons: gets kicked off the track because it has no roll cage or wheelie bars

The Beeper — My first new automobile. I am very sorry I didn't keep it.Live and learn, go figure? Cost less than $3000.00 new 383ci / Automatic / Posi trac. A very sharp and fast car at that time Less than 24000 miles on the odometer when I sold it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fastest car I have ever owned

Cons: Braking was terrible
Gas mileage was awful
No resale value at the time
Sure would like to own it now
Sold the car for $2300.00 in 1970
