Plymouth Road Runner: The Beginning

Plymouth Road RunnerYou can’t get very far into the history of classic Plymouth automobiles without mentioning the Plymouth Road Runner. The car was a reaction by Plymouth to the impression that the original muscle car concept was being lost as people were building cars that were more and more expensive and exclusive to own.
