Another new guy

  1. Hello everyone
    It’s been a long time since I’ve owned a mopar. About 35 years!
    My first car was a 72 demon 340 4 speed I bought when I was 15.
    My love for the A bodies and Motorsports in general was greatly influenced by my fathers first new car. A 71 Duster 340 4 speed car that he bought 2 months before I was born.
    I grew up in that car. It was my mother’s daily driver until 1980 when they parked it in a garage with 75000 miles on it until 2010. That’s when my father decided to restore it and just recently decided he has had enough and wanted to sell it.
    I had to buy it!!
    I want to thank everyone here for the wealth of information available. Hopefully I will be able to contribute some useful information as well.

    Eric
