This story about Plymouth Dusters really hits home. I still own my first car. Ordered through the local dealer and picked up April 23/70. A '70 Plymouth Duster 340-4, 4-spd, 3:55 suregrip rear, Sassy Grass Green, AM radio, no p.s or p.b. It's had a "few" upgrades over these 50 plus years, but still looks stock, although it doesn't run stock. It was never stored, used every year. Looking aged (52,000 miles), it was reconditioned in 2007-2009 (engine rebuilt, paint, etc.). Using this car in 1970, I taught my girlfriend to drive a 4-speed. In 1973 were were married and used this toy in our wedding. Guys, we are still married. In 2003, our daughter was married and our son (best man) drove this car in her wedding. Oh yes, the Hooker headers were OPEN during both weddings. Well, she's got 60,000 miles now and had an unplanned rest this Covid year with only a couple hundred miles added. It has been a joy owning this little car and plan to have it around awhile. Who knows, our grandkids may need a "wedding" car.
