I have been a Mopar fan almost since the day I was born. My family has a long history of Mopar's in the family but it was the 1967 Barracuda that my Grandfather owned that hooked me, it is the first Mopar that I owned and the only one that has been kept. I have become quite good and decoding the 67 Mopar's as well as 68 & 69's but with lesser ease. I hope to share this info here on his site but feel free to ask for help decoding if needed.

MrMopar.com! started out around 1997. The idea that I could build a web page and publish it for the world to see was too intriguing. At the time I felt Mopar's was my best choice, in retrospect I think should have gone with my first choice of Barracuda's.

Even as I built my first pages I still had no name for the site and actually hadn't though about having my own domain name. At first the first pages went up as "Uncle Al's Mopar Mecca" from people talking to me about the first test pages, the site quickly came into shape. The MrMopar domain was later registered and worked into this version.

Sometime about 1999 I realized that I was overextending myself in designing this site and would never do much of it so a redesign was in order. The second generation was the first to start using scripts, layers and style sheets and overall more effort went into the graphics. Needless to say the site became labor intensive and started to be neglected.

Over the last few years I have done some pages for other organizations and companies. In doing these I found that simpler was better and felt that it was time to bring that approach home and apply it to MrMopar.com! and again simplifying the site.

August 22, 2010 - November 11, 2020 - 1969 Polara CHP

Loved the car but with limited use I chose to sell it.

November 14, 2009 - November 26, 2016 - 1969 Polara 4-dr Sedan

This car was originally purchased to build a CHP Clone. Along the way a genuine CHP car was found and this became a daily driver and ultimately sold.

June 25, 2011 - June 1, 2016 - 1970 D-200 Camper Special

Originaly purchased to tow the CHP project. I chose to get a new truck when I was looking for a late model daily driver (1999 F-250 Super Duty), the Dodge was then sold.

May 21, 2004 - May 4, 2011 - 1967 Valiant 4-dr Sedan

Originaly purchased to eliminate the expense of having the Sebring, it was used as my daily driver into the completion of the Barracuda restoration. I initialy held onto it when I got the first Polara but when I got the CHP car something had to go.

January 31, 2006 - August 8, 2009 - 1967 Valiant 2-dr Sedan

Originaly purchased to build a car for the Silver State Classic. The priorities changed over the years. It was ultimately sold to fund getting the first Polara.

May 1999 - May 2004 - 1999 Sebring JXi

Loved this car but it was costing too much and the Barracuda was sitting unrestored. It was ultimately sold to free up funds for the Barracuda.

1984 - 2000 - 1973 Barracuda

Technicaly my first Mopar but at the time I needed the money more than the car.

May 1997 - May 1999 - 1997 Neon

The Neon was fun but at the time I had my eye on the new Sebrings, things were better so I traded up.

January 1994 - May 1997 - 1994 Neon

Started a new job and was commuting and felt it was time for a new reliable car. Sold it because I just had to have a sportier DOHC Neon.
