Representing 104+ Octane Boost: Larry’s 1975 Plymouth Duster
I bought this 1975 Duster in 2001. Had a mildly built 318/3-Speed, sounded good and ran good. I drove it that way for five years and wanted more power so I added a lot of upgrades. Now she sports a 408 Stroker/Roller motor, A-833 4-Speed tranny. All new suspension tires/wheels, 3-inch exhaust, headers, on and on… Runs great and fun to drive!

1964 Pontiac Grand Prix 421 automatic, it’s a driver. My brother gave me the car a year ago everything has been rebuilt by him when I got it I just cleaned it up installed a mutha thumper cam and cosmetic things.
It has a 400 turbo now 3.08 gears. I currently drive it 70 miles a day to and from work weather permitting on the interstate 70 to 80 mph and drove it to Nashville, TN few months ago to the Corvette car show and took 2nd place in stock production 61-69 class.
Although it’s not a hot rod, it performs well for a 4100 lb car with a high gear.
