Hello Fern and Group,

The 300-D episode aired on Velocity (here in the U.S.) last night, on a program called "Rusted Development." I missed the first ten minutes or so of the program, but painfully sat through the rest of it. Good news is the drivetrain was retained, and the motor rebuilt. The engine rebuild appeared to be done correctly at an outsourced engine rebuilding shop. The shop that did the resto work was clearly clueless about this car - calling it a '399 cubic inch Hemi' putting our 'about 320 HP.' The body work seemed decently done, with the D's body being painted a non-Chrysler red, with a champagne top, and then they added a landau partial top. Outline around the taillights was done in black, rather than the correct silver. Interior was done in a nonstick appearing tan dash pad, and tan non-original-pattern vinyl interior. Funky chrome wheels were added. They were griping about paying $1,000 for a correct replacement windshield, and then their shop manager proceeded to run over it with a lift truck. They then sourced another windshield for $1,500. I got tired of hearing how difficult Chrysler cars are to restore - which I'm sure is true for those who haven't done so before.

I looked through our new 2017 Member Roster, and did not see the owners' names listed. The owners' supposedly have 500 or so cars sitting out on their property in a desert location, but I don't know where. I got the impression that this D was the owners' only Letter Car.

Apparently there’s going to be a special on one of the tv channels re restoration of a chrysler 300D.
Anyone know which channel that may be on?
Thanks from Fern
