Default New Toy !

I picked this up last night and cant wait to start playing with it. It's a 1966 Barracuda Formula S with the Commando 273 4 barrel engine and 4 speed transmission. 1 of only 2,970 built with these options.

I usually don’t like older cars like that but it does look cool... the back window is definitely different.

Nice! Dated a girl in high school that had a gold one. Man, great memories of her, not the Cuda!

Back to school days memories. I had a '64 Dodge Dart GT with a slant six and 4-speed. Aftermarket 4-barrel and headers. Ran in the mid-13's at 97-99 mph.

Super clean and sexy looking too. Someone has taken great care of (or seriously restored) that old magic ride. Good for you! Now go burn off in front of your house for all to see and hear.

Thats what I am talking about. I used to have a 1968 Cuda 340S. It was a bad mamajama. I should have never got rid of that car. Enjoy the ride.
