          Has the car been cut up? What does the Duster weight? I'm hoping my Duster ends up at 3000 lb with me 3200. Real close to E or F. How much Hp do you think for that 360?

              That's three nice looking cars you've got there. I've just bought another Duster with a 360. I've always liked A bodies better than B's and E's

                made 3 runs today with the 1st being the best as the head wind kick up.....Demon in left lane and Dart in right lane.....tried to get a big lead but she drove around me....

                Driver of Demon need to think on how to do a burn out....plus the car kept dying....but ran fine at wide open throttle....after that one run everything worked fine...

                    Well...2 yrs ago went i put the Dana 60 in the Demon i did not do a good job of getting the ladder bars parallel.....the car does go straight...and running consisted with consist 60 ft times.
                    I put the car up on the lift today to change oil...and walking under the car looking at stuff.....man...my rear end is all out of shape....I could not believe how bad it is....the rear coil over shocks look like the leaning tower of Pisa...

                    I was going to go to Top Gun Raceway next weekend and race ....but not in this car....

                    Going to have to remove rear ....cut brackets off....and redo it all again....
