1971 Plymouth Duster Twister. This ones not mine but similar. Mine was a 318 three speed. I put 340 heads, a factory highrise 4bbl manifold, headers, 14 x 6 cragars up front & 14 x 10 cragars on the back with M50x14 tires. Loved that car! Sold it for $500 many many years ago.:(

My first was a cruddy white 1980 chevy monza hatchback. But a tree fell on it before I could get it on the road. So I got a 1974 Chrysler New Yorker. Burgundy with white top, white leather interior, 440/727, fender skirts, etc. Best $700 I ever spent. The previous owner had hit a deer and busted the grill/clip, so I pulled a clip from a junkyard Newport (73 I think). It bolted right up and I painted it to a close match with duplicolor. Otherwise that car was perfect. Even had the original 8-track player, which I used. Looked about like this one I guess.
