Really like the 72 Cuda you're building
Nothing like slick shifting a Mopar 4-Speed!

Thanks, sounds like the right name for a place to fix AARs  :wow:

I'm sure Art can sort them out. He's been racing since these cars were new and what I've heard is pretty impressive. Great folks!! I did see one Six pack car he worked on and it was much faster in the 1/4. I like stopping there, you never know what you'll see.

Thanks to all for the welcome/compliments

Hey Goody if I never replied to ya HUGE APOLOGY bro

How the heck have ya been? How's the car?

Oh after over 16 years of ownership I just had the prior owners stumble on the missing original paperwork  :cooldancing:   How's that? I scored the car because of a divorce and the owners were family. The paerwork was the husband's. The wife remained in the residence. He was unsure where the paperwork ever went. I stay in touch and recently had showed the young cousin (son) a broadcast sheet and asked that if one ever fell out of an old book or something to save it. Well they recently found a packet (cars original owners manual packet) they saw the 72 Barracuda owners manual and told my nephew to call me...the rest is history...this is not all :)

No worries! I've been pretty decent, busy as ever. My car is lonesome, it hardly gets out and I haven't done much of anything to it in awhile. I try real hard to keep those "just sell it thoughts" out of the back of my head...some day I'll have the room and extra funds to mess with it. Just not now, my Jeep has been eating up my fun

The car has had a hidden MSD 6AL and a wide band A/F ratio gauge set up (the factory box is left in for looks)  I installed a headlight relay upgrade. As always all upgrades fully bolt in style no holes drilled and fully removeable/reversable

I rebuilt the front end and added disc brakes and detailed everything. I did not blast my parts I used evaporust and then coated them in Eastwoods Exo Armour. The K frame and upper arms were blasted and powdercoated
