Curbside Outtake: Suddenly It’s 1973

73duster

I spotted this Plymouth Duster wearing what appears to be a fresh coat of “Basin Street Blues” about a mile ahead on the interstate, and caught up with him just as he peeled off. This car has all the right vibes from 1973: big rubber out back, a nice rake, throaty growl from the dual exhausts (340?), and left arm hanging out the open window (I’m almost positive I heard Bad Bad Leroy Brown blaring from the 8-track deck). Take the spoiler off the trunk, and this is just about perfect for my tastes.
