"RC"     1980 Dodge Ram Charger

Introduction / Overview:

This was the last year (1980) that any of the Big 3 offered a completely convertible SUV.  The original steel top unbolted at the windshield and along the side rails.  Unfortunately the steel top was too heavy for 2 people to remove and so I took it off permanently and purchased a soft top.  Purchased in California in 2002.
