    Plymouth Road Runner - Wikipedia

    When Kathy Cramer needed a new car, she had a really good idea of what she was after. Her previous ride, an overhead-cam-six Pontiac Firebird, was a sweet pony, but it lacked the heart-stopping rumble, V-8 power, and the four-on-the-floor shifting that young Kathy craved. The something school teacher was on a mission: Her roommates at the time were just like her, young teachers looking for fresh new cars to go along with their brand-new careers.

    They all went on to purchase nice little six-cylinder rides with automatics to do the shifting. They thought the whole idea was just so dumb. No well-mannered lady and school teacher should want a beefy muscle car. Unfazed by the opinions of her peers, Kathy narrowed her choices to two cars. The first was a GTO, a nice-looking ride with ponies to spare. She liked the styling and the power offered in the Pontiac, but she knew deep down that she needed to look at one more car first before she made her final decision.

    A friend had recently offered her a ride in his new Road Runner. With its red line tires, Air Grabber hood, and Hurst-shifted four-speed on the floor, the Plymouth had Kathy from the get-go.

    The decision was made then and there. It was Mopar or no car! She ordered the car the way she wanted it. It was a near stripper with few add-ons. She decided to skin her new ride in X9 Black Velvet paint, one of the rarer colors for the year. A woodgrained steering wheel and shift knob were a plus in her eyes and were added along with the AM radio and upgraded vinyl interior. She liked the stealth look of the painted steelies and dog-dish caps so they were kept on the new car.

    And of course the standard four-speed was a must. With all the right boxes checked, the papers were signed, and Kathy left with the car of her dreams. The young man was a true motorhead, straight out of California, who drove a custom El Camino that he raced regularly at the nearby New England Dragway.

    It was a four-speed car, done up with headers, and Kathy just loved the sound of the manually shifted V-8 ride. During her first few years of ownership, Terry schooled Kathy on the ins and outs of owning a true muscle car.

    She lifted up and drifted to the left, and my heart started pounding with excitement. I went through all four gears. Driving a hot car in the era of factory street muscle, you were bound to get into some two-lane trouble. As we are waiting to pay our money, he kept revving his engine enticing me to a challenge. I kept my eyes straight, paid my toll exactly when he did, then stomped on the accelerator. And that was all she wrote. When he caught up to me I got a nice thumbs-up.

    He was driving a Road Runner too! As the years went by, the car was driven sparingly, usually in the good weather from May through October. More responsibility at work meant less time to take the Mopar out on the streets. And after tying the knot with Terry, more family friendly rides made their way into the driveway, to help with the rigors of daily driving, transporting sports equipment, and getting supplies from the local hardware store. The thought never entered their minds to sell the car.

    Kathy thanks her husband for the foresight to keep the car, and to keep it as original as possible. Maintenance was also kept up during the long downtime. Over the years only the heater hose, fan belt, and spark plug wires were replaced due to natural attrition. But amazingly, no mechanical work has been done on the car—ever! The drivetrain has never been rebuilt or even taken apart in any way.
