I managed to get a trip with a couple 757-300s as well - DTW-SEA and then SEA-MSP a few days later in December 2004. I got a couple DC-9 flights on that trip too - both a -30 and -50 series, though I never got to fly on the -10.
Correct! To fill in all, the details,
SDF-MSP 6:15 pm - 7:14 pm, Northwest Airlines flight 1049, DC-9-30, meal service (and free!), on time 60% per e-mailed receipt

MSP-SFO 8:15 pm - 10:26 pm, Northwest Airlines flight 357, A320-200, on time - n/a

looking at the current Delta schedule, there is a 7:55 - 10:13 pm 757 flight, which is timed for a few minutes longer than the 1998 flight. Delta no longer flies SDF-MSP but Delta Connection/Skywest does.

I had the opportunity to fly aboard the DC-9-10, -30, -40, -50 but never the -20, which only a few were built for Scandinavian. The -20 was essentially a -10 fuselage mated with a larger -30 wing.
