Comments: This car is far too nice to make comments about in such a small section. Needless to say it has gone through a meticulous restoration where every detail has been covered. By far one of the nicest Challengers in existence.

Comments: Numbers matching 383 automatic, just one of 516 produced of 1,070 R/T convertibles for the 1970 model year. The only year an R/T convertible was available. The car is an absolute joy to drive especially on mountain roads with the top down. The car never fails to win a trophy at whatever show it is at which is quite a feat as it is no trailer queen.

Comments: Mal's Challenger is the #2 of 10 383 4 speed Challengers known to have been built for Canada. It was a dealer ordered car with the N94 option checked off - T/A hood. The hood was never installed. Most recently Mal's Challenger was photographed by Electronic Arts for the updated verson of the video game "The Need for Speed". The Hemi Orange Challenger is always the highlight of his day.

Forum Member:  Goodysgotacuda
Year: 1972
Make: Plymouth
Model: Barracuda
Engine: 318
Comments: At the young age of 19, this car has been Mike's daily driver for two years come November. Rain or shine. It runs very well at the strip and the videos are a blast to watch. Mike built his first motor and transmission that are now in this car. Its the original 318, .030, J-heads, Comp Cam, Alum intake, Headers, and a few other goodys. It's turned so far a best of 14.0 with 5,800ft of air. So with decent air it's got mid/high 13s written all over it for a 3,600lb, 318 powered daily driver.

Comments: Blackcuda's 1970 440 sixpak Cuda clone is just breathtaking! The car is an automatic with a 3.55 sure grip rear and was a California delivered 318 Barracuda. All of the 440 six pak parts came off a real 440 Cuda that was badly wrecked more than ten years ago. The car sits beautifully on it's 17x8 chrome Coys wheels.

Forum Member:  JacksBoys
Year: 1971
Make: Dodge
Model: Challenger
Engine: 360
Comments: Jacksboys got this 1971 Dodge Challenger in 1995, when he was only 17. The car received a new paint job, new engine, and a few other upgrades. It served as his daily driver for the next two years, and then served as a special occasion vehicle until 2001. In late 2005, after a four-year hiatus, the 360 was rebuilt with a little performance in mind, with some help from family and friends. With a few more additions, the car should be in the 13's when finished. It is a fun, low maintenance car to drive and got 17+ mpg on the highway while on the 2006 Hot Rod Power Tour
