I'm not sure what it is, but I like my little Val. even though there are a lot of "cooler" models. Do you have any problems with inspections in England for the old Mopars ?

I also love the early A Valiants and Cudas. I think since 84 I've always had at least one.
Your not mad, just a true Mopar guy!!!!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I think your car is Beautiful! Keep on representing mopars on the other side of the pond.

When I first got into Barracudas I was obsessed with the 70 and thought the early A bodies were ugly, but the look really grew on me. I'd have my 66 over a 70 Barracuda any day.

I feel the same way with people that own later Barracudas. Almost every person I've met with a 70+ Barracuda seems like they think they're better because of it. Hell even a few people I've talked to think I'm nuts because I like early A bodies better. Not only do I love how they look, but I like the people that love them too. I've only been fortunate to meet one other fellow A body owner, but it seems to me like it's a much closer crowd, and I love that.

Keep on lovin that Valiant, even if nobody else does.

That makes it a lot easier.

I had a shakey time navigating the Mondeo through the Cotswolds. The right hand drive was all new to me, but I bet a left hand drive car in a right hand drive country is really tricky.

I like the A bodies as well. There are some times when I wish my grandpa had bought one of the 67s that was most likely on the lot when he bought the car, but then I remember that I have a vinyl top and A/C which makes it quite rare.
66 Barracuda with vinyl top all stock except for wheels. for now...

to be added at a later date:
bigger, wider wheels
sixpack
833 or Richmond 6 speed
Retrosound model one radio
Ricer's pwned egos >:D
