There's a Cuda in my parking lot!

Well, there was. It left at lunch. I think the building owner or one of his sons owns it. Pretty sure it was a 70. R/T. My asst. calls me over, "Hey look at this car! What is that?"

"That looks like a Cuda, but it can't be." Pulled the binocs. Yup.

I was just shocked. There's a muscle car you don't see much of around here.

And for the record, I'm not a MOPAR fan by any stretch, but a 70-ish Cuda gives the 67/68 Camaro a run for it's money, body-design-wise in my book.

(Loved Eva Greene's convertible in Dark Shadows.)

I have a friend that owns two. One is together that he shows, the other is a restoration in progress.

The rear quarter lines on that, the 67/68 Camaro and the 68/69 Chevelle are what cars are all about. It's like the curve of side-boob - intoxicating.

Nice. My favorite is the 1971, easy to spot, twin headlights.

An old couple in my neighborhood have a 69 Cuda fastback they pull out of the garage and wash every now and then. When I say old, I'm 62! They have to be original owners. Their 2 caddy ghetto gliders stay out in the weather all year long.

'70 and '71 Cudas and Challengers are awesome and the styling is instantly recognizable as a muscle car.

Too bad the insurance companies and the government regs. emasculated them.

Growing up, one of my friends pop had a 71' hemi cuda convertible.

I remember seeing someone offer him well over 6 figures for it.
This was about 20 years ago.


Found it

A friend of mine's brother had an R/T with a 440 triple-deuce that literally could pull the front wheels off the ground, more or less stock.

This one wasn't a convertible. But it was sweet. I was hoping it would be at tonight's Bass Pro car show. It wasn't. :(

There was a black 74. Not the same car. Close, but no cigar.

Bought a 1970 'cuda 383 ci 4 speed, the first one I'd ever seen, in late 69 when I got home from Thailand. It would pass almost anything but a gas station but I didn't care...young, foolish, and flush is cash. Oh, to be 19 years old again :-)
