Don’t Get it “Twistd” … The Plymouth Duster was Underrated

Many of us remember Chrysler’s psychedelic era. From the late ’60s to the early ’70s, the designs were vibrant, the engines were powerful and the mascots were … cartoons. Some of our favorite vehicles introduced around that time include the 1972 Dodge Demon and Plymouth Duster. One Mopar® enthusiast, David Pagel from Stevens Point, Wisconsin, owned both nearly forty years apart. Pagel’s first car was a Demon that always held a special place in his heart even after he got rid of it. When his brother found a wrecked Duster on Craigslist just a few years ago, he decided it was time to build the sport coupe of his dreams. After a lot of time and even more work, this 1972 Plymouth Duster was back on the road, fully restored, and nicknamed “Twistd”.
