1964 Dodge Polara

In 1971, I bought my second car -- a 1964 Dodge Polara 4-dr hardtop with 318 and push button automatic. For 21 years, through 2 engines and lots and lots of miles, this car was my main mode of transportation.

Finally, I decided it was time to move on to another car. With the family in mind, my dad and I drove around the big city looking for a van that would suit our needs. Then, as fate would have it, there she was: a 1964 Dodge Polara 2-dr hardtop with a for sale sign in the window.

I took down the phone number, went home and called to set up a time to meet to test drive the car. It didn't take much to convince me. The price was low enough, and the family didn't really need a van all that bad anyway.

Now, this car is my daily to work driver, while my first '64 Polara is my parts car. Some improvements are being made all the time to try and out pace the ravages of the road. I am now into my 28th year of '64 Polara ownership without a break.

Thanks, Dale! You have a very nice looking ride there. :-) Okay folks, how many of you can claim 28 years of daily driving with a smile in a 1964 Dodge? I'm jealous. :-)
