Hurh thats sooo yesterday
pweeeze tell us how it sounds if you gets the chance that is.. :)
My new....old car!!!! She runs and drives great. is a 1965 Plymouth Valiant V200 4.5 liter V8 273 with ONLY 124,00 miles on her TOTAL. Everything is original BUT she needs repairs.
So I'm sitting here streaming Mp3s off my wireless network into my new Ipad2 and going direct into AH-D 7000s unamped, and I have to say my system is going down hill. The Denons sound way better directly out of an Ipod touch.
So now I have to play the same files on both. I'm wondering if streaming off I-tunes on a home network compresses the Mp3s even more? I'm so behind technologically, I should have just stuck with vinyl only. The rest of this stuff is simply BS. lol

I remember seeing my Dad driving in the drive way the day he took that car home brand new off the dealer show floor in 65. Same color and all.
It's a work of freaking art I tell ya what. Man for being 47 years old, It does need some work. But theirs a lot rougher looking ones out there.
Are you planning to simply restore it to original look and feel, or go the "resto-mod" route? Nice choice....you won't see other Valiants driving to and fro, unlike, say, Chevelles....lol.
I wana keep it as original as I can. I'm just gonna restore to its former beauty. I know she needs new paint and some holes from the rust patched. This entails a new paint job...should I keep it the orignial cream white, or go a super deep dark high gloss purple?
The right purple would be hot....maybe like this?
I'm thinking deeper. Like almost black. Someone was trying to hawk an old Malibu for WAY to much with out having...well original anything in it. BUT the paint job was nice, almost a black it was so dark.
Chrysler had such a shade of purple during the 70's, that shade of purple is referred to as "Plum Crazy Purple" by Chrysler. A few automotive paint manufacturers now can duplicate that shade as there quite a few Mopar car restorers out there wanting that color.
I know the color your referring too and that's pretty much it.
