Owen Todd Burrichter - Feb. 5, 2009 - July 24, 2013

The August Car of the Month is dedicated to Owen Burrichter, son of Darren (Burdar) and Julie Burrichter. Last December, his father Burdar shared the sad news that Owen was sick and had just had surgery. He remained brave and happy, and fought on. To the members of the Cuda-Challenger group, Owen was like family. Some members showered him with hot wheel cars, which he loved to open and play with. Darren would provide frequent updates on Owen's exploits, his endearing spirit, and his prognosis. For many members, checking up on Owen was the first stop when visiting our site. He had many people praying for him, and offering words of support and encouragement to his family. On Wednesday, July 24, 2013, Owen died peacefully at his home after an heroic battle. The memory of Owen, and his love for cars and trucks, and helping his dad work on their car will live on, in each of us as we share in our love for our family, friends, and as we enjoy the cars of our hobby.

Originally a Tunisian Tan 318 Barracuda, it was remade in 2003 into a 440-6 barrel Cuda. Limelight green, shaker hood, 4 speed pistol grip, close ratio A-833, 3.54 Dana rear, Rallye gauges with white faces, and a few creature comforts like power brakes, steering, windows, and vintage air for the tropical climate. The engine build is relatively stock, and supposedly puts out a dyno tested 378 hp, with headers and a full 3 TTI exhaust system. Beautiful!

Here we have one very nice 1970 Challenger 440 six pack! It was originally a 383 automatic R/T, then upgraded it to 440 six pack, manual trans. The 440 is set up to 10.5:1 compression, the rear is a stock 323 ratio, the paint is Diamont base/clear, HEMI Orange! 90% of the work was done with the guidance and knowledge of the great folks that post on cc.com. Awesome stuff!

Here is an original 1971 Challenger R/T. It's a 440+6 4spd with a 3:54 Dana. Has two original fender tags full of options including FC7 paint, white vinyl top and stripes and black interior, front rear spoilers, etc...even door edge guards! Car sold new in Quebec, Canada and the original owner is still alive and well. Car was completely restored in 2012 and 2013. Clearly a great example of MOPAR excellence!

This car is the reason Cuda-Challenger.com exists. While the board came many years before this car was purchased, CC.com was started with the T/A in mind. It is a beautiful example, all original, runs great and turns heads everywhere it goes. The Charger will always be loved, but the Challenger gets driven

Here we have a beautiful 70 Challenger that came from the factory painted in Plum Crazy with a white interior and top. It's a 318 /auto with buckets and center console. The car is numbers matching with all original sheet metal! The only thing added was an R/T hood and some wheels. It's a lot of fun to drive and gets a lot of attention when taken out!
