    cuda is back from the paint shop after a very long time I miss her. seen here partially painted for a reason im going to cut some metal front rails inner fenders and maybe more to install the body on the new chassis I know guys it is heart breaking for an original barracuda but you have to scarifies things sometimes for other things you like:) will post more photos in progress

    Was your car imported originally?
    Is there an import marking on the fender tag?
    If it was imported in the far past, did they leave the fender tag?
    Did they change the vin tag? Or leave it.

    What is the fender tag readout?

    Your post inspired me to post a photo of a '70 Panther Pink T/A that I ran into in Kuwait recently. Glad to see that there are Mopar fans in the Middle East!
