Mopar Connection Magazine’s Readers Rides: June 2024

Ever since Mopar Connection Magazine started back in 2015, one of our favorite things has always been seeing our reader’s rides. Whether it is by email or reader’s comments on our social media posts, we absolutely love seeing what everyone owns and loves. We love seeing what you are passionate about! After all, it’s all of you as readers that keep us going every day, publishing quality Mopar content that you love to read and we truly thank you all for that!

Every week, we get numerous submissions for car features and unfortunately, we just can’t publish them all but we really want to share everyone’s vehicles with our fellow readers. With that in mind, we decided to start a semi-monthly Reader’s Rides section in the magazine and are very proud to showcase our reader’s beautiful Mopars. And if you want your car featured in the next installment of Reader’s Rides, make sure to email

Paul Bierly’s 1969 Plymouth Road Runner: Paul from Iowa shared with us, “I’ve always enjoyed the pictures and articles from Mopar Connection Magazine. I have a 1969 Road Runner I bought brand new in August 1969. I have won many trophies with it drag racing and at car shows.

It’s had many different versions over the years with various paint schemes, wheels and hood scoops. I have a lot of fun with my Road Runner.” [Editor’s Note: While writing this submission, we learned that Paul unfortunately passed away in shortly after emailing us. Rest in peace Paul!]

Paul Lane’s 1972 Dodge Dart: Submitted to us from Lutz, Florida, Paul shares, “Growing up around my dad’s 1969 1/2 A12 Super Bee as a kid, I always dreamed of getting my own Mopar. I eventually acquired a green on green Slant 6 1972 Dart and got to work making it my own.

I painted it Orange and installed a built 360 fitted with Edelbrock Performer heads, a COMP camshaft, Kevko oil pan, SRP Pistons, Edelbrock Performer intake and a 780 cfm Holley. Backing it is a built 4-speed and an 8 3/4 rear end. I had the car mini-tubbed and stuffed 325/50/15 Mickey Thompson tires under the back.”

Chris Spartichino’s 1969 Dodge Super Bee Hellcat: Chris tells us, “I bought the car as a basic 1969 Coronet in March 2015 after watching it sit on Craigslist for 5 months. I got it running and driving with the original 318 automatic and drove it as is for a few years. Eventually I decided to go all out with the car and restored it to look like a black A12 Super Bee.

With the guidance of my friend John Gaddy [who we’ve featured quite a few times!], I installed a brand new Hellcat crate engine, Tremec Magnum 6-speed transmission from Silver Sport Transmissions and a Dana 60 rear end. I upgraded the suspension with QA1 parts and installed power disc brakes. The car is a ton of fun!

Daniel’s 1973 Dodge Charger SE: Daniel shares, “I loved your article, The Kings Influence: Doug Larsson’s 1973 Dodge Charger! I bought my 1973 Charger for the same reason as Doug did; Richard Petty’s famous #43 Charger. I’ve had my car for 25 years and have a 440 engine and transmission ready to be built and swapped into it. Thanks for giving some love for 3rd Gen Chargers!”
