    Great color. I have been trying to decide if I want to take my Challenger back to original B-5 or Petty Blue. I may opt for the B-5 and then paint a 72 Sebring Plus I have the Petty Blue. Good luck.

    I have actually been sort of on the watch out for a Barracuda or Cuda in Petty Blue. I have the 71 Challenger that I am working on, but my true love is for Barracudas, and I think the Petty Blue with white top, stripes and interior, is the ultimate.... Enjoy yours.

    Here's a few shots from my first cuda.
    it had a repaint once but it was a good match.
    Rusty Pennsylvanian bucket. But it got me in a cuda!
