Cuda's, Wing cars, etc etc....  Own any A bodies?

Welcome to the site.


no, only have the one T/A left.....all I ever owned were B-bodys(winged warriors) and E-bodys(mostly Trans Am cars)........I went to newer stuff a few years back and the Plum car is the only old MOPAR still here....I did purchase a 68 GTO conv a year or so ago....my son just bought a 70 440 SIX PAK Challenger 2 weeks ago....it is dressed like the Vanishing Point Challenger...

....pictured...the first Dodge Daytona I ever owned....purchased it in 1980 for $9K....it had 10,427 miles on the odometer, sold it to a disc jokey in Tampa Florida in Dec 1988 with 25K miles(I drove it alot)....the car now resides in Cleveland Ohio and still has only 26K miles 17 years later...

Your not a pro skate boarder by any chance are you?
Those of you who are on to it will catch my drift.................

Nice cars if there yours.  :thumbsup:

sorry kid, I am not a pro skate boarder so I didn't catch your drift....if you have something to say to me, JUST SAY IT !!!....and yes, the cars were all mine thru the years...I bought and sold lots of MOPAR Muscle and Vettes from 1980 till about 1992, then the market got quiet for a long time.....I sold all of my remaing MOPARs in about 98-99 and gave each of my kids a T/A Challenger....my son got the Plum Crazy one which he later sold and I later bought back.....my daughter got a Panther Pink one which she sold, it is still in town(there are still 3 Pink T/A Challengers within 6 miles of my house)....

Kid? Sorry mate. We've just had some younger guys come through before claiming they owned the world and several planets. I guess it's just the way you posted a couple, throwing off the first HEMI Challenger built that was in a car review magazine like it happens daily lead me to a few thoughts. If they are yours which I guess is true you've owned some pure beauties. Oh, and if I have something to say I will....didn't want to scare our newbie off by calling them out that's all........I have seen those photos around though which was another reason.............like the one of your car below.


Oh, I'm 23 so to be PC I'm not a kid.  :smokin: :lol2:


Cheers,

but you haven't seen this one  :grinno:


the photo you have was shot by a Brittish photographer named Nicky Wright around 1988, Nicky did lots of photo shoots here from aroung 1985-1990(lost track of him about 10 years ago)...it was shot at the local airport here in New Castle(call them if you want to verify the information, ask for Jeff Marlott)....I sold the car around 1996-97 to a guy in Michigan, he has since moved to Pawley Island (Carolinas, N-S ???) and still owns it....I bought it in 1988 from John Lubinski in Cleveland Ohio(you can call him too if you wish)....paid $48K then, a huge amount since a few months earlier they were bringing $15K....

uhhhhh, it's a T/A Challenger  :biggrin:

Wow, that's the second major mistake I've made within the last week....It must have been a long night. :screwy:  I don't know what I was thinking then.  EDIT: Nice Challenger T/A you have! (I feel like an idiot 'cause I own a Challenger and wrote AAR 'Cuda when I really meant Challenger T/A.  My car withdrawals are kicking in now and it's only two weeks into the semester.) :eek4:
1973 Dodge Challenger......................The ongoing project. (00/----\00)
1991 Dodge Stealth R/T Twin-Turbo....The sunny day cruiser (RTBoost)
1990 Toyota Celica GT Liftback...........The new daily & winter driver.
All-American Muscle: 'Cudas and Challengers...Still the Elite and always will be.
