nc_beagle Posted March 12 Report Share Posted March 12 The Conquest (I think it was built as a Dodge at the time) first came onto my radar in college in the late 80s/early 90s. It was the best looking car I'd ever seen. There was a woman in our apartments in Raleigh, NC that had one--in red, of course--that tempted me (the car, not the woman) every time I saw it. At the time, I had a LeBaron GTS that probably only those of you who are longtime MOPAR enthusiasts might remember. I loved my car, but the Conquest was just drop-dead gorgeous. The woman eventually moved, I eventually graduated, and a Conquest would never find my driveway. In fact, I never even sat or rode in one. But it's stuck with me ever since. Now I'm at the age where you get nostalgic for the cars you loved but never had in your younger days. This one remains at the top of my list. The "Bring a Trailer" website really brought it back into the forefront of my mind because there I discovered people were selling these cars in, sometimes, pretty good condition and relatively low miles. So, now I'm here to lurk and learn, and keep watching for an opportunity to find a late-model Conquest to recapture a little of my youth. Thanks to all of you who keep these cars on the road and keep the community alive. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
