no, we're not selling those tool boxes...

 at pomona swap meet


 niimie scored some great tools...


 and some tool boxes. and helmets. :)


we saw this exact 4door dart at mopar meet last year.  looked like the same guy who was selling this was driving or maybe a new owner.  anyhow, i want a 4dr dart!


if this salt&pepper shakers is not sold yet, it means W hasn't passed this row yet.


W scored this huge tool cabinet. he said he was entering the second phase of his life starting tomorrow and he needed it.


we loaded everything into the van and headed back to our workshop.


shinya catching some z's. 
i heard niimie snoring, too. but W went out to look for some parts that he couldn't find at the swap meet. maybe it's true that he's entering the second phase of his life...

W came back and shinya and niimie were fully charged after their nap. it's time for unloading!!

The Dodge Dart is an automobile built by the Dodge division of the Chrysler Corporation from 1960 to 1976 in North America, with production extended to later years in various other markets, and was resurrected as a nameplate in 2013.
The Dart name originally appeared on a 1957 show car featuring a body designed by the Italian coachbuilder Carrozzeria Ghia. The production Dart was introduced as a lower-priced, shorter wheelbase, full-size Dodge in 1960 and 1961, became a mid-size car for 1962, and finally was a compact from 1963 to 1976.

The project planners proposed the name Dart, only to have executives demand an expensive research program which produced the name Zipp. This was promptly rejected in favor of Dart.

Over its original 13-year production run, the Dart earned a good reputation. "The Dart was one of the most successful compact cars ever introduced in the American automobile marketplace," according to R.D. McLaughlin, then vice president of Chrysler's Automotive sales division, "It enjoys a strong owner loyalty and is a car that has established a reputation for reliability and value...these are [some] reasons why we will continue to market the Dart while introducing the new compact Aspen."

Ultimately, the A-body Dart was replaced by the F-body Dodge Aspen beginning in late spring of 1976—a replacement Chrysler President Lee Iacocca would later lament due to the Aspen's early quality problems.
