I wish I was born like 25 years earlier so I coulda been there for all those cool muscle cars. But I guess being young for all the bikes that are coming out now is pretty good.

I sold her to an idiot. I had a Holley 750 spreadbore on it and a real lumpy cam. The moron didn't like the carb and intake, so he bought an old Torquer intake and a carb to match. The intake was rusty so he took it to work and sand blasted it, but didn't wash it out. So guess where the residual sand ended up??? You should have seen the cylinder walls!!! What a sin.

This is the first one I've ever seen with a shifter mounted on the steering stem!!

Re: 'cuda

I had two Cudas. One '70 383 727 and one '72 318 . Why did I sell the 70 .

I have a HEMI Dart project in mind just looking for the right deal to come along.

Re: 'cuda

Nice car. I think the six-pack version stated so on the hood. This is most likely just a four barrel. Still, a great car.

I like the Florida touch in the garage(Hurricane panel leaning on the wall).

Re: 'cuda

I don't know a lot of detail unfortunately.

I know it's a '72, and he got it on eBay from a guy in CA. I think the guy selling was a truck driver, and he delivered the car to FL on a flatbed.
