CB....CBs still work?!?!?... No to the wheels on you stock axles, there are small bolt pattern rallies that would but before you get anything look into your rear end upgrade, a large pattern (4.5") will go on your car and there are many more wheel options.  You will probably want to upgrade to disk brakes and there are many more good options in the later model large pattern size.

Where did you get the photo of the Cuda? I love that blue and those are the rims I love!!!!! I want to upgrade the rear and do brakes for sure. I want to get some wheels like that also. What is the bolt pattern for that year Barracuda?

 Yeah CB's still work. Although not as common as they used to be. That is why I am having problems finding a linear to boost my output.

Yeah I am not going to mess with the body other than paint. Now i am however going to work on the handling and performance. Beefy springs, sway bar, nice shocks (unsure of kind),brakes upgrade, and other odds and ends. Still looking into an engine upgrade though. I love the sleeper look but want some testicular fortitude when I press the go fast pedal. Now being that it is a numbers matching car,,how would I go about storing the original engine?
