72 Cuda, owned 25 years. 496, with ported Stage VI heads, .625 in solid roller, 254/258 at .050, 3500 stall, 3.91 rear. 850 Holley DP, Reverse manual valve body.
Up to 4000 RPM, Warp Speed, Up to 5000, Rediculous Speed, Up to 6000 RPM, Ludicrous Speed!

1999 Trans Am, LS1, heads, cam, headers, stall, etc! Love to surprise the rice rockets with this one. They seem so confident, then it's "what the heck just happened?"

I went to High School with a kid who has one, and he still owns it. He has been offered some serious coin for it, but will never sell it.

Probably go for 3 Million today!


If we only knew what these cars would be worth.  Nice Mustang
Reminds me of a Hemi Cuda that was brought in to an Exxon station where I worked for a tune up.
The owner planned on selling the car for 3000.00
The other guys each took turns "test driving" the Cuda if can imagine what that encompassed.
The owner did let the car go for 2800.  This was in 1975.
Oh well!

May have been a different car, as this one is one of a kind.
