Love your Duster! First car I bought at the ripe old age of 14 was a 1976 Feather Duster. Brought it home nd tore it apart apart in the diveway, always loved the Mopar A bodies. As for the bikes, my '84 VT500C is still going strong and I've never even checked the oil. I know better but it's a Honda and keeps on ticking
Mine was a '72 360 at 16, nowadays I'd say that's probably the WORST thing you could give a teen, a car capable of 155 in a 45...but it was GLORIOUS for a few years!! [IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/HondaShadow_net_2015/smilies/tango_face_devil.png[/IMG]
Just glad I didn't get myself killed in the process...which nearly happened late one night on a wet, rainy Tennesee highway...it ended up at a junkyard in Three Rivers after a particularly nasty crash caused by the driver's side front tire blowing at 70mph on I-40...had just slowed down from 100 because something didn't feel right, and then it blew tread, started sliding towards the median...saw a pair of semi's headed down the road the other way, so turned into the slide, then out...but at that point the highway made a left, and I went over the side & down the hill, uprooting saplings for a few hundred yards. Missed a big concrete culvert by inches...according to the THP Officer who saw me go off the road there, nobody else had ever survived it due to hitting the culvert...so he took his time going to the next exit and coming back (he was following the two semi's)...he was parked by my tire tracks writing up a report when I finished climbing up the side of the hill. After my Duster was winched out, the front bumper was three feet higher than stock...bent frame. Engine was still good, so sold the whole shebang to the tow truck driver, and missed it terribly...but had a reminder for awhile...a nice Plymouth steering wheel emblem bruise pressed into my chest when the seatbelt broke on the way down the hill.
Now I want one of the new Challengers...in Blue, with Chrome accents! But I think the wife will end up with a new Minivan first <img src="https://www.hondashadow.net/forum/images/smilies/icon_wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />
