That's a long way to go in my 340 Duster

  1. I could've been one of the cars in this convoy to a great car show in the Mid-West. :wavey:

    I did go to a car show that weekend, and it was my first with my Duster. But that was only the American Metal Custom Bike and Car Show in San Jose, CA. Mine and a few other mopars, including a beautiful Charger, were kind've in an out of the way spot, but quite a few people still came over.

    There were two bands, but the one near my wife and I was Full Throttle.

    I didn't want to drive that far. I'd get to many bugs splattered on my beautiful car. :rolleyes:

  3. I've been to Denver, a couple of times, when I was in the Air Force at FE Warren AFB in Cheyenne. I was sorry I couldn't go again. Some of my friends were even going to a Rush concert there. And that was 1980 when they were red hot. But I got discharged a little bit too early. Great town. :)
     
  4. I'm not sure if this is gonna work. Better to have the pics here if I can do it.

  8. I love this GTO. I just wish it had been blue (or green even :hs:). I don't particularly like red cars. But hey, that's just me. :p

    Why's it pointing backwards then? Isn't the inlet supposed to be at the front?

    No the scoop takes advantage of a low pressure area in front of the windshield. Ram Air doesn't work until a greater speed.

    Hmm. I understand the bit about ram-air needing more speed to work, but what good does pointing the scoop at the low-pressure area near the windshield do? Don't you want high pressure going into the intake?

    Shut the hell up.

    Anyway, someone else explained it for you. Don't sweat it, I'll never discover that you didn't know the answer either.
