Back home in a Cuda
« on: August 08, 2005 - 12:19:38 pm »
Well I'm new to this site.  I recently purchased this '72 Cuda.  It has been converted from a 340 auto to a forged crank 440 4-speed.  3.55 sure grip.  I say I'm back home as I had a '72 Challenger as a kid with a 340 4-speed.  I lived in MI at the time, and it was a severe "rust belt" victim from the day I bought it.

Now I'm older, and can afford a little better.  This one is all new underneath, and runs strong.  I look forward to many years of enjoyment, and hopefully not alot of required help :laughing:

Anyway, TIA for all the help I'm sure to receive.
