rectangular headlites like these?

Yes except mine was a 1969 with raised nose and different grill. Very similar to those except I managed to retain the original rectangular turn signals, which is why I thought it would look good and more futuristic since it was a Battlestar Galactica themed car!

No, for some reason they were removed some years after 2006 when they were originally posted and downsized my the then moderator...unfortunately I don't have them anymore

I think I found some large 5Mb pictures on a few thumb drives and need to downsize them so they will be able to post and will do that shortly!

 :woohoo:

Think I found 'em, not the exact ones posted in 2006, but very similar. The only good headlight shots are in booth with masking tape on them though. I do have some more on another thumb drive or phone if I can get it to work right. Enjoy and thanks everyone for your patience! This was also between a graphic design and color change so some stripes and murals may look different! I worked at NASA LaRC as a graphic designer and was parked in the path of some nasty red and white overspray on the huge crash test facility they were spraying over a mile away and ended up wet sanding with 1000 grit and decided to do more murals and changed top heather pearl (purple) stripe to irish mist (green) at the last minute, before taking back to body shop for re-clearing final paint!

I just attached 5 .jpg's that are under 500K each and when I hit "preview" all I see is this text...no pictures. This is the same problem I had in 2006 while posting from NASA!
I hope they are there!!!

okay I see what's happening they are too big, let's put these thumbnails back since the bottom 2 worked!

Thank you so much!!! I loved it and would just like to know WHERE IT IS since my friend sold it after I gave it to him for a father-son project car back in early 2000's. The reason for long original post on pages 1 and 2! After my dad died in 1990 I inherited his 1979 Dodge D-50 Ram, 1989 Dodge Shadow, and lots of sudden problems with my 1969 Plymouth Barracuda...causing me to lose interest and a lot of money on her. She had over 200K miles when she left. I currently drive an "Intense Blue Pearl" 1999 Dodge Dakota Sport Club Cab that I bought used in 1999 the year before I got married in 2000 with 18K miles on it. After 9-11 I airbrushed a patriotic flag theme on it and it currently has 226K+ miles...my wife had an '89 Dodge Omni when I met her, we've owned an '09 Dodge Avenger, and an '02 Dodge Caravan Limited previously. She's done with Mopars and owns a really nice BUICK now...her princess mobile!

Sounds like you have quite the affair with late 80s and 90s vehicles. My daughter has a 99 Dakota sport with something like 250K on it, but I have put an engine in it, rebuilt the front end a couple of time, 2 rear ends, a transmission, etc. She just bought a new Subaru which she loves but still has the Dak. I has a 85 Plymouth Turismo at one time (black with a red interior), 89 Dodge Daytona turbo, really like both of them. I currently have a 68 Barracuda fast back awaiting its turn under the knife, its going to be a restomod with a 5.7 in it if I can ever get my 70 Roadrunner done.

I'll chime in just to say that the car is really a cool looking ride!  I love the older paint schemes.  Thanks for posting.

'Cuda Hunter

You are welcome! Sorry so late responding, had issues with website for some reason...turns out all the responses were in spam folder and I never thought to look there since this is an official site...I think it's all good now. I need more people to see this though, since I want to know where the car actually is, and you were last to respond and that's dated July 28, '19.

I'll chime in just to say that the car is really a cool looking ride!  I love the older paint schemes.  Thanks for posting.
