Hey everyone! 
I'm Jeremy, but I go by anything but "Late for dinner"...

I'm a Mopar nut since I could ever remember.  My dad bought a '74 D100 Adventurer SE new and drove it until it was no longer safe (frame cracked--blasted salt on roads).  We's toss 2 tons of wood on it, and take it home, go deer hunting in it, and would go places I didn't think a 2wd could.  It was two tone matallic green and cream. We'd go to car shows and dad would always point out the Mopars.  At an early age, I could differentiate a Road Runner from a GTX...
Dad also had a '76 Charger Daytona (1/46 with sunroof and hi-po 360).  My dad and I rebuilt it int he garage in the '80s, added a hot cam.  It was later my work and college car.  Would love to find it and restore it.  Wicked fun car!  Wish I had photos of it.

Fast forward many years to 1999.  I bought a used 96 Dakota Sport 4x4 with the V8.  Had a ton of fun in that truck.  Drove it till 2010 when I had to sell it before moving overseas where gas is 8-9$/gal.

After I moved the family back to the states, I bought my first Hemi, a '17 Ram 4x4.

One more thing, I'm a train nut, as my late grandfather was a railroader.  Most of my profile page's photos are trains.  I'm a photography nut as well.

HMMMM, I'm beginning to wonder if this had anything to do with the wall collapse that occurred twenty years later at the exact same spot on the bridge...

A year-and-a-half later, 3234 is still sporting a couple dents in the short hood...

Don't forget about Lanty, Tony. He's a train nerd too. LOL
