Post by: cuda_06 on September 26, 2005 - 07:11:08 pm
just wondering how many a body owners there are on here.  i have had my 68 for 5 years now and have only seen a total of 4 others ever.  three of them were in west texas and one was up in chicago.

yes i do have some pics but it might be a bit before i get them up bc i have to remember the username for my cardomain page.  the only reason that i opened the page was to host some pics to link to another site.  it also has my old rx7 on it.  my favorite year is also 68, lucky for me.  67 is second best but the 69s have that wart front center that i really dont care for.

Thats strange you haven't seen many other a body Barracudas.  I think I have seen more a bodies around here than e bodies.  Here are some pics for you.   The red vert in the first pic was perfect.  It won best in show at our local mopar club show.

i appreciate all the positive responses and do hope that i get to see more a body cudas in the coming years.  in the town that i live in there is one other 68 fastback  and a 67 vert.  there are a few darts that i see every now and then but that is about it.  as far as e bodies go...there are 3 aar's, 2 real one copy, and around 10 or so various others including 2 challengers that i know of.  i even saw a sox and martin cuda once but it was probably just passing through.

Locally, there are 4 67 Barracuda's, and one 68.  The 68 is a fastback, one of the 67s is a fastback 273 Commando car, and the rest, including mine, are notches.

 I have a 1970 original 340 Duster, but because the previous owner decided to chop it up and make a race car out of it, I'm turning it into a Pro Streeter.
