  • I would not trust any dealings with coronet 440!!!

    First off I will say hi to the Forum. I joined because a recent search on google had a picture of my car that was linked to this site. Come to find out that Coronet 440 seems to think it is his car. I gave him a few chances to be honest about the car with no luck. I am posting this because if he lies about this, who knows what else he might try to sell, trade, or lie about. I have cut and pasted the discussion from the "Show us your FWD mopars" thread. I have put way too much time, love and money into this project for some @ss to come on here claiming it is his.
    Here is the conversation and it will continue on to all the pics of MY car. The picture he shows was taken at the 2003 Chrysler Classics in PA. If you notice in my build pictures you will see the exact same window stickers on the windshield. Three years of Mopar Nats and the Carlisle sticker at the bottom. This was the last show I attended before I tore it down for a almost 5 year resto mod.

If so what kit did you use and how much is the drop? Any engine work? Thanks for any help! Wont let me post a pic but I am talking about the red/siler Daytona Shelby. When my post count is up I will post some of my project....just don't laugh! lol

    Gee, he never posted any other pics, maybe I can help out on that....

    I had to sell the Daytona, and kick myself a bunch for doing so. But that just comes with owning cars

    All Daytona Shelbys with automatic transmission can with the 2.5l turbo. It had the long torque inducing intake the same one that is used on the Chrysler built 2.2 TII. But it has a small Mitsubishi turbo. The paint is stock and original. No suspension work either.
    2.5 Auto....He had to sell it
    So there you go, please be cautious when dealing with this liar. On to the real pics!

            there is a forum that has Mopar build stories in it. You ought to post the build of the car less the personal issues (you have already made that point well enough) in that forum

                          that is one HOT shelby, I know that car was never an AUTO, Ive seen that car on turbo dodge. an 89 Shelby should have came with a TII 2.2L and a 555 manual, and all of the 2.2L and 2.5L used the same intakes from 88 to 93. That other fellow definitely doesn't know is turbo dodge stuff lol.
                          You did one helluva a job on that car.

                            Still one of the best if not the best Shelby Dodge restores out there. I am the pope on and the car is in the 56,000 megadeath post. I still pop over and look at muscle cars as I still have a couple. But I use a different name here and so I didn't know it wasn't you lol. The guy may have a t top car and may not know how to post a photo and coping yours was easy. But to take a lot of pictures and post them up as yours is BS of course. Try to be flattered instead of bent lol.

                            Most Mopar people are separated. Clubs for Shelby Dodges, clubs for Neons, clubs for the Cummins trucks, clubs for the new hemis. Any one type of member doesn't believe that the others are Mopars worth mentioning. Kind of rare to see some one from TD here for that reason, even though a FWD shelby Dodge has a higher percentage of real Mopar in it than a new gen 3 hemi.

                            You need to drop in every couple months and set people straight. Most here think the 2.2 is a Mitsubishi lol.

                              I've only read a few of your posts so far but in the last few you've made, you've insulted most of the members here. What's your problem? If you think this site is full of cave men with blue hair that doesn't know their asses from a hole in the ground, why do you even come here?? No one here has blue hair and no one here are cave men and I bet your ass to a hole in the ground that 99% of the members here know who made the 2.2!
