  1. An old acquaintance of mine had his out yesterday on my street, parked at the Legion. His is a hard top maroon on black with the 340. Eye candy machine for sure. Ohio Guy

  2. I must add that one of my buds had one back in "the day" and I rode in it a few times. We were kings of cool back then. Now I drive an old pick up, wtf! Ohio Guy

  3. I got out of the Navy in October of '69. Within days, I ordered a Cuda. '70 Cuda, 440 6-pack, 4 speed, 4.10 rear with the best suspension package and the Shaker hood scoop. Yellow with a black vinyl top. It arrived and I took delivery the day after Thanksgiving 1969. Why I didn't order the hemi, I have no idea. 5 mpg around town, 12 on the trip to Dillon SC when we eloped.
    Absolutely the worst car I've ever owned before or since. I couldn't wait to trade it in. The one time I put it on a drag strip, I went for 2nd gear and the clutch pedal stayed to the floor. Who the hell puts an aluminum clutch pivot on a car like this? I crawl under the car to see what the hell broke and I look at the broken pivot and I'm thinking how the hell am I going to get that out. I turned it out with my fingers. Car was just junk. Within a year there was rust in the trunk.
    Naturally, today it's worth it's weight in gold.

    1. I bought a used 70 Cuda like you ordered but in red with 80k miles the summer of 78 as a rising senior in high school. It handled like crap and I couldn't afford to keep gas in it. I lived on a farm out in the country. It was a consistent 6 mpg.

      I wish I had parked it in the barn but after 8 months I found a guy that took it off my hands for abut what I had in it.

  4. Wow, that looks exactly like the car that my HS buddy Roger had back in '70. It was a Hemi, 1968 drop top, and we put a gas line cooler on it because we didn't want to mess with anything else. Ran like a raped ape!

    I wonder where it went?!?!
