Hi, My name is Jens. A man from the dark, cooled land called Sweden.
Just bought me a Firedome from a good friend. (After a couple of years of talking and begging)
But now to the funny parts, The car was imported from Bethlehem, outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 2007.
My friend owned the car 2008-2020. 13 years of pure happiness he said.

And now, after those years in this wet, damp climate the car needs new paint. And the trunk is totally rotten, because the rear window has leaked.
well, was rotten, because i already fixed that s**t up. (Can't stand when things look like s**t)
So, after 30 hours of good old human work, the trunk nearly looks like new, except for the wrong color on the vinyl.

The drivetrain is all rebuilt, and hopefully will give me many miles of pure love.
But looks like the rear right brakecylinder is leaking.. so when the spring arrives and the snow is gone, i have to fix that.

Take care folks!

//Jens

Tackar tackar! Ja visst är den trevlig? många års pratande och tjatande lönade sig till slut. Haft en Mopar-vagn innan denna, dock betydligt tråkigare modell, och innan dess en Buick (kändes väldigt fel). Men ja, detta verkar vara en bra sajt för oss och delar gärna med mig av mina kunskaper till andra =)

Thank you for your support!......(here's the translation....)

"Thank you. Yeah, it's nice, isn't it? Many years of talking and chasing paid off in the end. He had a Mopar wagon before this, but much more boring model, and before then a Buick (felt very wrong). But yes, this seems to be a good site for us and I am happy to share my knowledge with others =)"

seems like an old restoration. Obviously the windshield washer bag need attention...I remember selling those NOS some years ago, they were hard to come by...
