We just recently purchased a 65 Barracuda! My husband owned one in his teen years and sold it. We then a week later purchased a second car (a real steal) for parts only. Thats all its good for honestly. I say our cuda is Fred Flintstone drivable since the floor is out. Doesn't matter to us because the Commando 273 engine runs like a champ. I can't wait t prove to my 2 boys that I can peel out. lol. We have started replacing the headliner and have lots of ideas. She is white and at one time had the red stripe. She will again one day. Now keep in mind I am far from a car girl and know very little about cars but I am willing to roll up my sleeves and get greesy with my wonderful husband. So thats our story for now and I will add some photos when I figure it out.

My husband owned a cuda before a 65 to be exact. A few years ago he could have bought it back and chose not to since we had a brand new morgage. I told him to buy it anyway but we didnt. Sadly it went for parts and we are now redoing another.

Yes sir! our trim rings (wheel well trim) came today! Yes sir a great ebay buy at $30 for 5 of them and we got 4 decent ones from them. I am so glad because this was one thing we needed and I feared we wouldnt get them or would end up taking a morgage on the house to get them. Also got in the mail today the sale brochure from the year our car was from and we found out some good info. We maybe sitting on a formula S and not quite know it. Just joking!
