My first A-body…circa 1978

Actually, it's my first car of any type. My mom brought over a box of old yearbooks and an old Polaroid picture of my first car fell out!

It's a 71 Duster 318 3 spd on the floor. Turd brown. We called it the Ruster, because there was more rust in the quarters than there was metal. I bought it off of my parents for $600 in 1978 when I turned 16. The previous owner had put the Fenton slots on it, but I talked my parents into the white letter tires.

Good times!
