    Secondly: The last GTX as a separate model was made in 1971 but any Road Runner with a factory 440 in the 1972-74 years also got GTX badging.

    You are ignorant when it comes to these cars. Go ahead, look 'em up at Year One, I'll wait. Then you can come back and apologize for calling me a liar.
    I am not ignorant in any way when it comes to these cars. You can call it a Road Runner all you want but it is just a dressed up Satellite and not a very good one. I understand it is your car and you are partial to it.

    I think that it would be stupid. I mean there is alot of raceing that would be prevented and like it is crack is illegal and nobody can get that. Needless to say there are many mechanics who would jump to accept that money and alter vehicles so that criminals could still get around the system

    Your previous statements say otherwise. May as well call a Goat a dressed up Tempest.

    The 1990's Lincoln was a dressed up Crown Victoria, though it was an awful nice suit.

    There are places in the United States without speed limits. If companies want to risk losing business by making cars that way go ahead. The government has no place in regulating that though.

    Not all. The Gen IV's, you had to get the top suspension/tire option to get the limiter removed. Caused quite a lot of trouble for AAFES sales back then when customers got there cars, hit the autobahn and then got shut down. I was actually thinking of getting a Gen IV (Trans AM actually, not the camaro) when I ran across the '92 Z-28 in K-town, still own it.

    I don't believe that's true any more.

    Gee, apparently Year One is a all knowing encyclopedia for old Mopars. Who would a thunk? I also love how some car guys cant think they point out a wrong without going the extra mile and calling someone ignorant. Usually its the parking lot car show racers that do it.
    You know the ones, don't own the first tool yet know everything. Never built the first car of their own, yet got all the straight dope on anything automotive related.
