    Hello. Paul D. here. Just became a member and figure I should say hello and glad to be a member of a group of fellow Mopar owners and enthusiasts. I am the proud owner of a 70 Barracuda, although over the years her body has fallen victim to some neglect. I'm now in a position to start undoing that neglect and getting her roadworthy again. Look forward to reading about other peoples cars and projects and maybe getting answers to any questions I might have on my own along the way.

    Ok, I got a couple of pics uploaded so you can see the general condition. Like I said she has gone through some neglect but I am working to start undoing that. All the rust is pretty much surface stuff but there are some spots where it is heavier. I now have a shop building I can move it into so I can start doing some disassembly for rust removal. Engine is a semi hi perf 340 backed up with a 727 trans.

    No, that is a replacement door. She started life as a plain jane light green 318 with bench front seat with column shift.

    Yeah, I've changed a good bit on it. It was my daily driver for a long time. Just never got the body finished.
