    The January 2020 Car Of The Month will be any ’76-84 FMJ vehicle with a /6 engine.

    Pictures are highly recommended. A back story might be helpful if there are voting members who do not know much about your vehicle.

    If you want to submit a friend’s car, I say go ahead.

    This thread will be open for two weeks from now (January 24) and a new voting thread will be started then – for one week.

    I'd like to humbly submit my 1977 Volare' coupe. 4 speed OD, Super6, AC, manual steering, power brakes, 2 speaker dash, black high buckets / interior. Purchased in 2017 from a member here ( Joe/ Sarge). NOS replacement fenders. Have all the beltline trim and even adding a buddyseat from Kitcar Chris (as soon as I dye it black). Upgraded to the Chrysler K - car brake booster and master (Thanks Gator for the help with that). Recent Carb (Thanks member Mike Woj). Mike also gave me a few extra beltline trim clips (NOS). Car is not finished but is cool as it gets there. I added the Mitsubishi Eclipse front marker lights for the puke factor IMG_3730.JPG IMG_3136.JPG IMG_3137.JPG IMG_3130.JPG IMG_4228.JPG IMG_3133.JPG

    I’ve heard you talk about this one but now we get to see the pictures. Nice car.

    I know there are other /6 cars out there. Time is running out - and we don’t want Slant6Billy to win by default, do we?
