Survivors Tucked Away in Iowa
Following up on a lead about a bunch of survivor muscle cars in Iowa, I met Bob, who showed me his drag cars and parts. My eye was immediately drawn to a red 1988 Pontiac Firebird Formula 350 with only 22,000 miles. Next to the Firebird was a 1970 Plymouth Duster 340 with a four-speed that was bought by Bob and his father in February 1973. He raced the car, then put it away in 1976. Bob’s brother bought the 1973 Duster 340 four-speed car next to the ’70 after driving Bob’s. He racked up 17,000 miles, then put it away. Bob says it’s original, right down to the air in the tires. He’s coming up on retirement and plans on getting the 340s going again.
