    I've posted on this site earllier but have never introduced myself. I'm a proud owner of a 71 Duster since June 07 my very first mopar. I almost wasnt part of the mopar family because I had been looking at different cars for about 2 years (Ventura's, Mustangs, and even Lemans) go figure. My parents brought me this car as a birthday present so here I am. Funny how things workout
    Mopar or Nocar

    Thanks guys I appreciate all the compliments. I'm so happy to be part of the MOPAR family and to think I almost brought a MUSTANG the only reason I didnt is when the owner test drove the car for me the owner didnt close the hood pins and when he nailed it the hood went flying up snapping all the hood latches

    Not a very good way to sell a car! You're much better off with a Mopar. Mustangs are nice but they're a dime a dozen
