find-your-muscle-car: Duster Giveaway From Tidewater Mopar Club

The Tidewater Mopar Club is a very active, Mopar-only car club. We first saw them at a regional car show years ago with a display next to the beautiful Plymouth Duster shown above. In the past the club worked on a project car each year and then raffled it off, giving the funds earned to various charities.

For example, if you’ve read about places we recommend to find a muscle car, you’ll know that car shows are on the list. The Tidewater Mopar Club website lists months of upcoming car shows.
