Reader’s Rides: Steven Mick’s 1972 Plymouth Duster

Today’s reader’s ride is Steven Mick’s 1972 Plymouth Duster. It started out as a Slant 6 car with a 904 auto and a 7.25 rear end. But now it has a 360 (out of a 1977 Chrysler Cordoba), Keith Black flat head pistons, Mopar Performance Purple Shaft Camshaft, MP High Rise single plain intake manifold, ported and polished original heads, Edelbrock AVS 750cfm 4brl carb, A833 4 spd transmission and a 8.75 rear end. Steven says, “I still have work that I would like to do but with some fine tuning still needed she runs great!” More pics after the jump!

Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s 1972 Charger Stolen

Early morning on November 6, thieves broke into Picture Car Warehouse in the San Fernando Valley and stole five vehicles, including Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s 1972 Dodge Charger. It doesn’t appear that his car was a particular target as the other stolen vehicles included a 2005 Mini Cooper, a BMW M3, a Ford Econoline van, and an F-150 pickup. Three cars have been recovered and two people are in custody. The Charger is not an inconspicuous car, even in LA. It may also have some bodywork damage and yellow paint transfer as it hit a taxi while being stolen from the warehouse. If you spot it, please contact the Los Angeles Police Dept. at 818-374-7611. More info on the heist at Hot Rod.


Reader’s Rides: Mick Thomches’ 1972 Dodge Dart Swinger

This is our second 1972 Dodge Dart Swinger reader’s ride this month! Pretty heavily modded, but still a bit more of a street car than Mike Moreck’s 1972 Swinger. Here’s the word from Mick:

Nice 360/480 h.p. crate motor, 3 sp. B+M Pro Street ratchet into 904 Performance tranny . Mini-tubbed 8 3/4 sure grip w/3:55 gears and Strange axles. Super Stock leafs w/Monroe Max Air shocks. Full AutoMeter instrumentation. Just a blast to drive.
