Panning for Gold
Who: Jeff and Corey Wood
Where: Colorado Springs, Colorado
What: 1975 Duster
Jeff tells us that he and his son Cory (currently serving in the USAF), spend time whenever they can, driving around in this Gold Duster that has an all-original interior. The engine in the father and son project has received some upgrades, via a new Comp cam with .454-inch lift, and 268/268-degrees of duration, an Edelbrock Performer Intake with Edelbrock 600 carburetor, and a set of rebuilt Magnum heads. He's also added a set of shorty headers with a Magnaflow exhaust, and front and rear Hotchkis sway bars. He tells us that his son was a feature in our Young Guns section in 2009, and now he is serving his country in the US Air Force, stationed at Hickam Field, Hawaii. This is dedicated to him. Thanks.
Who: James Riveland
What: 1977 Dodge D200 SE
Where: Ramseur, North Carolina
James tells us that he thinks this truck is very unique, and is proud of all the blood, sweat and tears that he and his family have put in it. It took 21⁄2 years of sourcing parts and junk yard digging throughout three states to locate all of the parts that he needed. It's painted PPG 2005 Dodge Ram Daytona Go Mango. It took many months of body work, sanding, priming, and more sanding, to get it right. There's an all-new interior. James also tells us that the truck runs great with the numbers matching 360, but he sees either a 440 or a new Hemi in the future.
