The Mopar A bodies were really dependable and versatile cars for their time. Maybe one of the modern diecast companies can do the big bumpered Duster or Dart.
    No big bumper, but this Duster may be pretty close to the one you drove.

    As much as I like the Johnny MoPar Performance versions of this casting, I also very much appreciate they did some far more typical models we would -actually- see on the road.

    Most of the Dusters in my High School parking lot looked more like this one than anything on an album (or magazine) cover!

      Excellent pictures guys!!
      Due to the recent budget cuts,
      the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil, plus the
      current state of the economy, the light at the end
      of the tunnel has been turned off.

          Welcome aboard, Firesweep!!!!
          The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

          Thank you for your understanding.

            I wonder if the makers of "Bondo" were consulted for approving the deco on the "typical" daily drivers that might "sport" such 'restoration'?😁

There was no missing him, but all the stories go the same, that he was always gracious and friendly.

              To me The Cars’ first album is their best from start-to-finish, with great individual tracks found on their later albums.

              While I don’t have a pure Johnny Lightning Replica of the car on the album cover, I suppose i could swap the hoods on these two and have one that would be close (and another that would look ridiculous).

              Used to love let the good times roll, a favorite from High School, and moving in Stereo was pretty cool. Ric's solo album this side of paradise was a worthy effort!
