    Man alive!
    I love the lines on the e-bodys.
    They could be fully restored or not, wrecked,rotted, rusted, dismantled, unfinished.....
    Obviously there are many people who have the same feelings regarding these cars but the astonishing and the ever increasing popularity of these cars is beginning to weird me out hot dam.
    These prices are making a mockery of the so called hand built "super cars " .
    For instance, the Maybach has to take a bach seat to a sun roofed challenger, that's just too wild!

    137.5 K for a 340 Cuda vert with air WOW!
    Did have a shaker, 4 sp and factory AM 8 track.
    And a desirable color combination!

    Was that blue dash/console with white seats factory?

    A similar 70 Cuda vert 340 4sp in red sold for $90K at Mecum Kissimmee in January 2014

    Missed a special 71 Cuda 440-6, 4 speed with a little history behind it;
    Sold out of the Zandee Collection for $143K
    1971 Plymouth Cuda | S115.1 | Indy 2019 | Mecum Auctions



    Apparently, it is known as the "barrel cuda" and was restored by Allan Gallant in Ontario.
    One of the later buyers who bought the car after restoration added a few factory options.
    Car went for a pretty good price.
    Stunning car.
    I remember seeing pics of this car when it was in this condition a few years back

    I don't know why but every time I see these cars up on drums and 2x4s I get irritated.
    Wasn't there another yahoo who did the same thing with another car? I remember 5 feet of snow on the ground when the picture was taken.
    I mean if the dam things is valuable and he knows that it is ( 'cause he went through alot of tomfoolery to suspend the car on a 2x4 cross, four feet off the ground), then why the hell not get a dam storage for six months so the snow doesn't destroy the car and also avoid looking like an idiot , say nothing of the possibility that the car could slip off the drums!
    They want to get a million dollars for the car but they don't want to spent 60 bucks a month for storage, cheap dam fools.

    I found the pictures that I saved. They came from Maple Leaf Mopars (Cars in Barns)

    The article at the time stated:
    "1971 Plymouth 'Cuda 440 Six Barrel.
    No need to check your eyes, yes the car is on BARRELS???? Anyway this super cool 'Cuda was originally parked in Newfoundland, moved to the barrels, then off to Ontario where it sits to this day. Maybe one of the best lookin' Cudas ever made!!! It would need a ton of work and lots of $$$ but I am sure someone has the skill and money to bring this one all the way back!!!"


    Well, the car is certainly back!

    That car better not find its way back to Canada again, they will have it "over the barrels", lol.
    But you know what they say about history...., It repeats itself!
