:smokin:  someone scratched "smoke pot" on my ashtray.  it came from the factory like this as i am the only owner of my cuda.  the picture doesn't capture the words very good but that is what it says.





that doesn't surprise me. i remember reading in one of the mopar mags back in the '90s about a '71or2 roadrunner that had a marijuana cigarette and an unopened bag of potato chips under the carpet.

Those are awesome!

Here is the one I found a few days ago.



Nothing fancy.   But a factory doodle none the less!

Last week I soaked my 71 Cuda Fender gill brackets in Evaporust.
One  fender, the lip on the wheel well was turned up. However the other one wasn't. 

Therefore I believe that my OEM gilled fenders are from 2 different cars. A 14" and a 15" fender.
I bought both of these fenders back in 89'. There were in excellent shape.

My conclusion is this one was a 14" 71' Cuda fender?

Written is: E 14.

The Factory must've marked it on the brackets so the next assemblyline person would be able to look up and know what size tire/wheel to put on. Just a theory, but it makes sense.

This isn't car related but way back when I used to work on cessna airplanes, I built an elevator (Pitch flight control surface) for one of the planes from sheet metal.  It is completely enclosed.  The line crew guys and myself all signed our names and printed things like the current price of bread, milk, gas, etc.  Kind of a time capsule of sorts.  I wish that I would have taken a picture but back in those days you still had to take 35mm film to the store to get prints.  We not only did not have cell phone cameras, nobody had cell phones.  lol

Probably from the guy who previously restored it!  :faint:

There is actually several different cars with the dollar sign on the rear inner fender.

Same guy?

I have my glove box from my 74 Barracuda that has a happy face drawn on the back side in white pencil / crayon. If one of the members here would like I can send it to you so you can post it here for me. Send me an e mail and I will send it along, John.
