1974 Plymouth Duster
When the Barracuda moved up in size Plymouth decided to spend their
restyling budget on a sporty semi fastback coupe to fill the void left by
the Cuda. It was a great move as the Duster was separated enough from its
Valiant brother that buyers considered it a much more sporty and a great
value for the money. But it was the performance variations that we all
remember including the hand full of Hemi Dusters that were terrors of the
drag strip. The standard slant six was an economy leader and legendary for
reliability but it was the range of V8 power options that began with the
318 and went up to 360. But in most experts opinions it was the 340 Dusters
and its brother the Dodge Demon that were the street fighters and giant
killers. The enthusiast could order a Duster and get the performance
package with either an automatic or a 4speed behind the 340. It was the
1971 model of the duster that turned out to be the right combination of
compression and the new electronic ignition that made that year special as
in 72 Chrysler lowered the compression and made the valve size smaller to
meet emission standards.
The 71 340 also had an over the shelf Six Pack that really kicked up the
performance when installed with a set of headers.
In 1971 I was at Fort Gordon Georgia waiting to see what the fate of my
life would be, I took a trip to town and had an extended road test in an
Orange Dodge Demon 340 4 speed with a 410 gear that made for wonderful
acceleration put was definitively limited in long distance driving. The
engine was wonderful as well as the transmission. The steering and brakes
did leave much for this sports car driver to desire. Coming from some very
sporty cars it was the engine that I truly loved, and if was into drag
racing I would definitely have bought one.

Truck Fest 2013: Smokey Big Rigs Burnouts & Drag Racing Revealed
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) When you think of a Big Rig Semi...you probably
don't immediately think of drag racing...or do you? This weekend at
Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver, Colorado hundreds of Big Rig
Semi trucks lined up on the drag strip to see which one is the kind of the
mile high drag strip and which one is the fastest mile high pickup
dragster. Can a big rig run a sub 20 second quarter mile? You bet. Can a
big rig run a sub 15 mile....no problem. Can a Big Rig run a sub 10 second
time? You'll have to watch the video to find out. In another fun and
informative TFLtruck video we see what happens when the Big Rig Semi Trucks
