Quite some time has passed since our last Scale Model Kit of the Week (the Pyro Cobra Tee Way-Out Rod), and so it seemed best to jump back in with a Malaise Era classic, from the era when memories of "Vanishing Point" were strong and Burt Reynolds encouraged a generation to try to outrun The Law with sub-150-horsepower Detroit coupes.

Meet the MPC "Fuzz Duster" 1980 Plymouth Volaré kit, available on eBay right now for $26.88 shipped. This kit offers the choice between building a regular Volaré Road Runner with sensible Slant-6 engine or a monstrous customized beast with huge wheel flares, side pipes, and a V8 engine with twin four-barrel carburetors. The early 1980s were amazing times!
