It's not every muscle car that can say it spawned a scholarship fund, but this 1975 Plymouth Duster can. Built by mechanic and racer Paul Annunziata, who once worked at the same car dealership Leno worked at as a child.

Annunziata recently died of lung cancer, but before he did, he offered to donate the car to Leno. Leno didn't want to just take it, so they arranged to donate the purchase price of the car as a scholarship fund to McPherson College, which offers four-year programs in automotive restoration and mechanics. Now the car resides in Leno's garage.

Check out the video for the rest of the story, but we'll leave you with this teaser: there's a 1,000-horsepower blown 426 cubic inch Hemi in this tubbed Duster. It's fast. And it sounds great.
That's a sweet Duster! :D
