Bought a trailer for the Barracuda.  Now we need to get the Plaza ready to go north and make room for the Fish.  Gonna be sad to see it go, but my stepson has been wanting to get it finished for a long time and we have not even got the chrome put back on yet (it's all in the trunk and back seat).  It will be so strange having a finished car to enjoy!

Okay, so you want me to take a picture of the new Barracuda from the same angle as the old one.  Do I need to get my mom to let me sit on her lap in the passengers seat when we do this?  I'm not so sure she'll go for that...   ;D

Absolutely! That's half the fun silly.
Make sure you have a copy of the photo with you to help make sure you get it as close as possible as the original.

I LOVE MY NEW FISH!!! 

Now I need to get it a blanket, personalized plates, plate holders...  Can't get too much though, I promised I'd keep it "original", at least for now.

After the E-body, that's my favorite Mopar right there. That is a tasty looking ride  :2thumbs:

I love the look of the Cragar's.  It came with the original painted wheels and hubcaps and another new set of tires for shows even though I can't seam to find a judged show around here that it would matter at.  We live at the end of a 1/2 mile gravel drive - makes driving it anywhere a bit of a risk...   It looks so good in person sometimes I just sit in the garage and look at it.   :-* 

What gas do you guys use in your cars?  Any additives?  I can still get 100% gas here in town, but will ethanol hurt it ?  We burned up 2 chain saws and a weed eater using ethanol in them and sure don't want to hurt this car!

Okay, so I guess it's a Show Car.  We went to our first show and it took 2nd in a large 60-69 original class at the Gainesville show with 216 total entries.  Members judged, and several told me that it was their choice for best in show.   :wow:  Got a nice trophy and kinda got bit by the bug.  Now to find another show...

Nice trophy!  Congrats!  :thumbsup:
