YAY My first CUDA!!!!
« on: February 16, 2014 - 01:09:58 pm »
 :bananasmi  I couldnt be more excited!  I just bought my first barracuda, my dream car!  It is a 1973.  It will not be here until Thursday, but I am already attached and ready to take her for a spin!  :wow:

After I enjoy her for a little while, I have big plans to change her into a 71 phantasm barracuda.  My husband does restorations for a living.  I am not sure he agrees with a clone, but I cannot afford a 71! haha.  Either way, we are very excited to be expection our first "cuda child."  Thanks for having us!!!

Welcome to the site. Very nice car, and black e-bodies look killer.

Very nice Cristi!!!  :burnout:

I know the wait is driving you crazy. I've been there and time goes by really sloooooooow.
But it will be worth the wait.

I'm a huge fan of Phantasm and love your idea of cloning it to the Phantasm cuda.  :ylsuper:

And lastly, welcome to this site. Great members here and lots of knowledge. I love this place!!!

Keep us posted on arrival and we want to see a lot more pics.
