    SEMA Seen: 4-door 1970 Barracuda

    You read the headline correctly: This is the 4-door Barracuda that Plymouth didn’t build in 1970, except it actually did, sort of. After a series of show-winning builds, David Walden was looking for a new challenge. He considered a project around a 1969 Pontiac Trans Am he already had, but...

  • 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Convertible

    I'll start this off by saying I'm a massive fan of most things Mopar. Additionally, I love watching those with many dollars available to them spend those dollars on all manner of vehicles that cross any number of the many auction blocks. This went down in grand fashion recently in Monterey. Yes, it was car week in Northern California, and high rollers were rolling in to buy wheels in which to roll out of town once the money dust settled. There's one car that hit the auction block, however, that I simply can't get excited for. ALSO SEE: Dodge SRT Hellcats And HEMIs Could Die In 2019 A 1970...

    The Plymouth Barracuda was a pretty wonderful piece of the muscle car pie back in its day. Today though it seems the second-generation cars get heavily overlooked in favor of the third-generation machines from 1970 and 1971.

  • John Cross' 1970 Plymouth 'Cuda

    Those who see cars as necessary evils, or worse, as the downfall of modern civilization, won’t understand the significance of one car being in the same family for over four decades. They certainly won’t understand why someone would spend a jaw-dropping amount of cash to preserve the original engine and replace it with one built to produce nearly 700 horsepower, especially when it requires the use of 100-octane fuel and delivers single-digit fuel economy around town. On the other hand, those of us who’ve turned wrenches on cars like this 1970 Plymouth Barracuda with a 440...
