1973 Dodge Charger

Paid about $300 (US). Had this car for one summer. The air shocks leaked, needing aired daily. It had a bad left ball joint, which I never bothered to replace. It was faded blue, with dusty cloth interior and a bench front seat.

For some strange reason, once you got over 65 mph, the ride became really smooth (even on very rough roads). Some people thought it was actually off the ground. As crazy as it may sound I think it was haunted (several of my friends agreed). On occasion it seemed like someone else was in the back seat. Unfortunately, I never took any pictures of this car.

Sold in late '70s.
