YAK Car Pic of the Day

1971 Plymouth Duster, Grand Island, N.Y.

A while back we shared a photo of a Dodge Demon which looked to be in showroom shape. As you may know, the Demon was based on Plymouth’s Duster, which came before it, with minor trim changes. Well, for comparison’s sake, here’s a 1971 Plymouth Duster. I’d have to call it “not exactly showroom shape.” Could it be that Grand Island (where it lives) is actually surrounded by salty air which has been eating away at the Duster’s sheetmetal for the last 40 years? Or is it merely most Mopar’s proclivity to slowly disintegrate?
