CC Outtake: Mutual Admiration Society

CC 252 059 1200

When I whip out my camera to get a shot like this in (stopped) traffic, the response I get when folks notice me varies considerably depending on the car I’m driving. It’s invariably one of understanding and mutual admiration when I’m in the truck. I can’t say that’s always the case with the my xB. 

This Duster is one of a few still plying the streets. It’s hard to imagine a time when Chrysler A-Bodies won’t still be in regular daily use, but sadly, it will happen. These have to be one of the most accessible and easy to keep running “classics” ever, with their bullet-proof drive trains and rugged chassis. If I was to drive an old-timer sedan or coupe on a regular basis, that would be my first choice. Or my recommendation to someone else with that intention.

My ode to the Duster is here
