Taylor swiped from a classified listing online.

|Hi, my name is Ross Palmquist, here is a pic of my
Grandfather's (soon to be mine) '78 2dr Coupe Diplomat. Nothing special. 77k on
it. Interior is original including AM radio. Very very mint interior. I hope to
enter it in some "M" body competitions this summer. Engine compartment looks like it did from the factory.

Taylor. The attached description read: "1977 DODGE DIPLOMAT 4-door - only 54700 original documented
miles, 318 V8 engine, air conditioning, kept in garage, drives like new, must see to believe, just $2350 or best offer."

|1984 Dodge Diplomat, formally with the North Arlington First
Aid Squad, in North Arlington NJ. This car was used as a First Responder for
EMT's in their squad. I just happen to be looking thru the legal notices in
our local paper, and saw this vehicle and old fire truck, two old police cars up for sale
and there it was. The car was hurting, the shackles where broke on the one side and the car was
sitting lop sided. They were rusted pretty bad and from what I heard the car was sitting for two years in the same
spot (this town is 1 mile from Giants Stadium). The minimum bid on this car was $25.00, yes believe or
not, and nobody bid on it. I was so happy about this, the way you see it is the way I
bought it. I just gave it a grease oil filter serviced the transmission, new idle arm
had the car detailed. I also took it to a couple of car shows, and had a lot of fun with
it. I've been buying old police cars for over 20 years and had a few Diplomats also but this one IM very

|Doug Thomas ("If you inadvertently snooze, you unequivocally lose")
sent in a photo of this supersweet hopped-up 1978 Diplomat wagon. He
I thought you might like a shot of my '78 Diplomat wagon.
It was originally beige with "wood" trim. The previous owner mercifully reshot the car black.
It's got a '78 318 with 360 heads, Mopar Performance electronic distributor,
360 4bbl intake and a much massaged Holley 600 carburetor. The rear wheels
are 15x8 rally's with 245-60-15 rubber, while the fronts are 14x6 rally's with 235-60-14's. The body is totally rust free (from
Kentucky) and the interior is mint other than the cargo area carpeting unraveling a bit. I just
purchased the car about a month ago, and did all the engine work myself. The
car is my new tow-rig, replacing my trusty '67 A-108 van, which was the donor
for most of the performance goodies.
