Hello folks, let's get the introductions done first, I'm Ed and since Monday I just can't stop smiling. I'll explain why.
A while ago I met Tim and we ended up chatting about his Buick and importing cars. His Buick's awesome and the importing business all seemed a bit easier than I'd initially anticipated.
With the seed planted in my head it only took was six cans of Kronenbourg before I clicked the Buy-It-Now button on Ebay.com, and I was the theoretical owner of a 1969 Chrysler 300.

I've always had a big thing about the 60s and 70s land yachts and I particularly like the Mopar C-bodies so when I found this original paint, unmolested, 53k miles from new Chrysler in Texas with the full horsepower 440ci engine it was time to make one of my dreams a reality.
Anyway, fast forward six months, after various hurricanes, customs queries and general faffing about I picked it up from the docks on Monday. It was all a bit heart-in-mouth collecting it. I've never had a car purchase so built up, and I've never seen one of these cars in real life, let alone mine.

As it turned out the seller, a really helpful chap, was as good as his word and the car was in exactly the same condition as I expected. It's going to need a new vinyl roof and some general tidying up but it's all there, almost rust free and most importantly it's looks even better in the flesh it's outrageously big. Here are a couple of pics from when I picked her up...

Hope you like.

Welcome Ed!

I get the feeling this is one of those cars that it doesn't matter how many photos you see and how big you imagine it is... once you actually see it in the flesh the sheer size will still blow you away!

having experienced this Ed would you agree?

Awesome car, i for one can't wait to see it come rolling into my yard Smile

Hi, Glad you like, thanks for the comments.

Tim, it'll hopefully be crushing the gravel in your yard soon...

I'll add a couple more pics when I get a chance to take them.

You had much time to play with it yet Ed? where you've got it stored is a few miles away though right? how annoying!
