I need some good forums for a Plymouth. I just got my mother-in-laws 1976 Plymouth Feather Duster (package deal, I get this and the CJ5) and need a good site like this one for it.

And stop your laughing, it was bought brand new in 1976 by my mother-in-law.

Plymouth Feather Duster and Dodge Dart Lite.These were made in 1976, with aluminum inner hood, trunk bracing, bumper brackets, and intake manifold; economy carb and distributor calibration; large exhaust system; tall rear axle ratio; and either 3 speed auto or 4 speed overdrive manual trans. Their gas mileage was phenomenal for their day, and even for the present, given their size: 24 city, 36 highway. Few modern cars of that size can claim this. With an automatic, gas mileage slipped considerably, to 22 city/31 highway - still comparable to modern cars. Very few were sold, partly because they had to compete with the new Aspen and Volare, which were in the same price class.

go to www.google.com and type in Plymouth Feather Duster and several sites will come up..the above is and overview one of them had.

Look,If I could find a 1955 Plymouth Sport Coupe in good shape my Fastback would be history

Everyone has opinions. Next to 55 Chev, 55 Ford, 55 Olds, 55 T bird, and many, many, many others, there was the ugh! 55 Plymouth with the isn't it cute! dash shifter,(later followed by the pushbutton fiasco) suitcase 6cyl (flathead) anemic V-8, fastest ruster outer (though they all were in Chicago) a thumbs downer at the drive-ins, like wearing Levi's with fresh white shoes! There was a big band song "Stomping at the Savoy!. We used to say "Stompin' Out the Savoys" Wasn't hard on Rt 66! And then!! In 57 they came out with the Torsion bar susp that would break on the first year models. 57 Plymouths were terribly built cars and in 58 they had Christine!! Sam!! That Dover is changing you!! LOL!! To give up a 68 Fastback for a Mayflower!!! Oh, What heresy!!! To the stake with him!! That's what those Mayflower Pilgrims did on Plymouth Rock! Will concede that a 340 Duster was a handful1 Will also concede that one sharp looking car in 55 was the Chrysler 300 with real wire wheels! And will tell you that I had a terrifying ride in one!! Fast! fast! LOL!! The Mayflower sunk!! Seatbelt is on for backlash!!

Sam,
Don't say it's so. But if the Fastback has to go, we have a great home for adopting it.

Pete,your dam funny.Dont hold back next time just tell it like it is.
I too would go for a 55 Olds or 54-55 Ford.I have been thinking hard about putting the Mustang up for sale for a 54-55 Ford.But you know how that gose's I'd have to get what I want for my Mustang and then find a 54-55 Ford in great shape for cheap.
Now a 70 superbird,wings-n-things.

Old Mopars ain't all bad Many years ago before my dad died, he was a rural Mail Carrier, drove about 250 miles a day. He call me one day needing a different car for the route. I got him a 63 Belvedere 318 old style, and push button auto. He put over 300K miles on it before it died. He said find another, this one was a 64 Fury, 318, auto. Same results. The car was put to rest when he retired.
