I am just getting back in to the classic car hobby after being away for too many years to count. A few months ago, I picked up a nice '64 Barracuda off eBay. It was my first time buying a big ticket item like a car off the site and it was a little more than scary. Everything worked out fine and the car is actually in pretty good shape. Looks like someone started a restoration but never finished. It looks good in pictures because it has a fairly new so-so paint job. Close up it is a little rougher. Lots and lots of things still to be done. I've been occasionally posting to the e-mail list and lurking around the forums. I thought it was time to post a picture.

That's a nice looking 'cuda Vic. Congratulations on your new purchase. A friend of mine had a first car just like that. It was a red 1964 with 273ci V8 and a four speed.

The car has a slant six with the pushbutton auto. My son already wants to drop a 340 in it. I am leaning towards staying with the /6. The engine is a little tired and probably could use a rebuild to freshen it up. Lot of other items on the to-do list first though.

Nice car Vic, congrats! I vote for keeping the slant six, but I'm biased.
