    I am not a Dodge man, but I came across this a while ago and was trying to figure out what it was. It looks like a "pin" or something, but I really don't know anything about this piece.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks Dave! I knew one of the 'old dogs' would know what it was :D

    Mine isn't 2" though. It's about the size of a loonie and hasn't been bent yet.

    My first thought was "how old are you?!?!"

    But then I thought that I haven't seen that sort of pin since maybe Carter's election campaign, and figured more than half of the guys on this forum aren't that old!!!

    Actually, let me correct that. We have some local museums that give them when you buy a "ticket" and the color of the pin allows you into certain areas, depending on how much you paid for admission. But other than that, old election campaigns.

    Remember that movie "Office Space"? Stick that thing on your collar, lapel, or tie, and you have one more piece of FLAIR!

    Back in '68-'69, a guy that lived the next block up from us, just back from a Viet Nam prison camp, bought a brand new Dodge Super Bee. Dual Quad 426 Hemi, pistol grip 4-speed, Dana 60. B-5 blue w/ blue interior, black stripes, and that same Bee from the button on the rear quarter panel.

    I was too young to remember much about the car, but years later, it was a neighborhood legend among me and my fellow gear-heads.

    in 1980, my parents had our house up for sale, and I was having to sell a 57 Chevy project that I couldn't take with me on the move, and the guy stopped by while visiting his parents to look at the 57. I asked him about the Super Bee, and he told me after he bought the car, he had some "G.I. money" and just got in the car and started driving.....all over the country, back and forth several times taking a different route each time. Sometimes he'd find a place he liked (or a girl he liked at some place) and he'd hang for awhile, maybe even get a job to save up some money, then get the wanderlust and hit the road again.....

    He said he now knew he had PTSD from the war and prison camp,....and he said driving that car was the best therapy he could think of then to cope. In 1975, He met a girl in Texas and decided to settle down. Sold the Super Bee for $1,500, bought a station wagon and started a family.

    Last I heard, he and his wife were living back in Cali in his parents old house.....my old 57 sittin' in his garage, waiting for the next weekend cruise with the grand kids.

    I thought it was exclusively for Darts/Demons, no?

    I stand corrected: http://www.allpar.com/cars/dodge/scat-pack.html

    Actually the Scat Pack was Dodge only. Cuda's and Roadrunners were part of Plymouth's counterpart: The Rapid Transit System:

    I remember when those cars were new, but I was only a kid back then.

    I always wanted a 70-71 Challenger or Cuda. With a 440 and 4 speed! A neighbor when I was growing up had an Hemi orange AAR 'Cuda, I loved that car!

    Since the closest Dodge or Chrysler/Plymouth dealer was 50-75 miles from us, I didn't get to see many of them up close. Still didn't stop me from drooling over magazine and TV ads for them ,though!:dance:
