1970 Plymouth Cuda Hemi LOV #3

The 1970-1971 Plymouth Hemi ‘Cuda is the star of this edition of the Muscle Car Showcase. For 1970, the ‘Cuda was all-new. The ‘Cuda’s pretty boy looks and fastback styling from the 1960s were now gone. In its place was a combatant with a more aggressive design and features, ready to take on what the Camaro SS 396 and Mustang Boss 429 could dish out. The 1970-1971 Hemi ‘Cuda was also no longer overshadowed by its crosstown rivals. Its time was now and it was out to make a name for itself.  Read the rest of this entry

1964 Plymouth Barracuda #2 TCB

In this edition of the Muscle Car Showcase, we’ll explore the 1964-1969 Plymouth Barracuda. This scrappy little fish was the original pony car, making waves in the muscle car world two weeks prior to the Mustang. Some may say this generation of the Barracuda is the Rodney Dangerfield of the early pony cars. It just doesn’t get the respect it deserves.
