Go to ebay and enter 1980 Plymouth Volare Duster and it will come up. Appears to be a nice car in the photo's, other than the trunk lid paint where it's missing. No underbody shots though.
Well, it is here now and the underside is pretty clean, the exhaust work is questionable and like many 40+ year old cars it could use springs and some rear suspension work. The upside is it has an 8.25 rear end and the gearing feels good overall.

The mopar shows in the 80s were great, at the time there were no other Mopar shows other than the nationals.People from all over New England and Mid Atlantic states and Canada would show up,I’ll have to dig up some old pictures

I remember the Farmington Polo Grounds. I would always go every year. I really enjoyed the show and swap meet. Those are some really neat rides....I find it funny that now many of us would not mind owning a 2.2 powered Omni of some flavor.

I'd say you did pretty well for the price. Also I promise soon I'll stop saying, "I should have bought that". How does the 318 and 4 speed manual feel?

The car feels pretty good. It needs springs and an ISO delete. But overall it is a nice car....now to the list of things I wanted to do back in 1990
