Hey folks, after searching for a few years I finally found my cuda. I've looked at so many in Ontario and saw so many rotten cars, or over priced projects, I lost count. I even drove all the way to Chicago (8hrs) to pick up a cuda off of ebay only to find that the seller had advertised the wrong VIN (and sent me the wrong title copy) and I couldn't bring it back across the border.
... Anyway, it's a 1973, Barracuda - 318 (project) car. I was focused on finding a 72-74 because I prefer the round tail lights and grill of those years. Of course with the restoration I'm steering away from the original trim a bit - to make this car 'my own'. I've picked up a 440 already, and will be going with a 4speed. It'll be finished with sassy grass, black billboards and rally rims. Interior will be in the original black finish with console, and I've already picked up a set of rally gauges for it.
I picked it up in August and am just beginning to really work on it now. I just got it back from media blasting and of course, it revealed the "easter eggs" I thought (but hoped wouldn't) might be there...
No big deal, the car is pretty solid, just weak in the usual spots - especially for a canadian car.
Anyway, looking forward to sharing my restoration in the restoration story forum area and pulling on you guys for advice as I make my way through this - so thanks in advance
