Every neighborhood has a story of some abandoned lot somewhere full of late 60’s to early 70’s American muscle cars, just waiting to be discovered, or they’ve heard of a warehouse stocked with Italian sports cars ready to be restored. That’s not really the case with my neighborhood’s abandoned lot. Its inventory is…
See those two cars there? One’s a thick, dripping slice of American muscle car, designed to murder tires and peel out of Dairy Queens. The other is a clever and boxy little Italian hatchback with an engine that could likely be overpowered by the other car’s starter motor. Two cars can’t really be much more different,…
Harley has been building functionally the same basic bike for, what is it, 300 years now? Little has forced them to change its styling or design over time. What if car companies could do the same thing?
The Plymouth Barracuda was born just weeks before the Ford Mustang hit the stage to take it all, becoming a modest pony car with a rear window no other could match. And it remains fantastic to this day.
The ‘worst pass of all time’ title may indeed go to this hopeless Plymouth Barracuda driver down in Australia, who loses control of his early pony car, crosses into the other lane, backs up, restarts, and then things get even worse.
The late 1960s truly were a turbulent and bizarre period in history. The Cold War's greatest proxy war dragged on in Vietnam. Paul McCartney was dead. San Francisco didn't believe in hygiene. A racist sociopath from Ohio had formed one of the most creepy and terrifying cults ever out in the California desert.
American muscle cars are great in a straight line, but they're ass in the corners. Right? Everyone says that, so it must be true, right? Not necessarily. Meet a car and its owner eager to prove that adage wrong.
Imagine owing a rare, numbers-matching, high-spec, 440-six-pack 1970 Plymouth Barracuda. Then imagine you got it from your cousin when you were 17 years old, and it's now 34 years later? That's the situation with John Cross and his 'Cuda.
A man was questioned by the Secret Service Wednesday night after driving a Plymouth Barracuda onto the lawn of former President George W. Bush's home near Dallas.
Owners of various Alameda Down On The Street honorees sometimes contact us to let us know how their cars and trucks are doing. Lately, we've heard from a couple who have really spiffed up their rides.
It's rare we endorse anything hybrid related, but this t-shirt highlights mashups we can get behind. The shirt's only available for a couple more hours — so buy it now. (Hat tip to everyone who tipped us!) [TeeFury]
Can a 62-horsepower Rabbit really keep up with a perp standing on the gas pedal of a Barracuda? Hey, the Malaise Era demanded some suspension of disbelief!
The LMC Super Cuda is a Viper V10-powered Barracuda designed to reach 200 MPH. The Cuda actually hit 208 MPH before the car's aerodynamics and the driver's balls finally gave out. The Ferrari Enzo it raced gracefully achieved 218 MPH.
We anticipate the Dodge Challenger will have a substantial showing at this years SEMA show, and if these two entries from Mr. Norm are any indication, its going to be a big horsepower show. The "Super Challenger" and "Super Cuda" are a pair of heavily modified Challengers sporting 900 HP from Kenne Bell supercharged…
We love our Chrysler A-bodies around here, no doubt about that. For that reason, I'm overjoyed to have finally found one of the later A-body-based Barracudas in Alameda. Cool as the 'fastback Valiant' early Barracudas were, the 1966-69 cars were the ones that really looked like their sleek carnivorous namesake (the…
We were wondering how long (or if) it would take for folks to notice the little two-door 'Cuda sitting behind the SR-392 yesterday. It didn't take too long for people to start rumoring, but before we even left the showroom floor, we'd already gotten our answer from the massively Mopar folks. Mostly because it was…
