    been a Looooong time since I've posted and I figured That I had better.
    Update on my 67 is that I toasted the third member. I had a BRAND NEW one built for me out of all new casting and innerds.
    I had a posi. and now has 3:55 gearing now as apposed to the 3:23 that I had before. not the best for highway driving but it'll light up the tires in a hurry at the light. While I was at it I went the whole way, axles and all.
    The onlt Mopar event I'll be going to this year will be the mopars only show in Oak Harbor, Wa. on August 12th. Other than that, I'm driving it to the Good Guys 31st annual N.W Nationals in the end of July.
    Has anyone heard from John Lately? Anyways, Happy Motoring!

          I won!!!!
          I'm told that it is not easy to win anything at a Good guys car show, so it makes me feel even better about the recognision.
          I won the Home built Heaven award. for the best home built vehicle. How awesome!
          And that even with my Brother's 54 Chevy pick up that he built, and that thing wins EVERYWHERE he takes it.
          Anyway, i just had to share it with you all to prove that a MOPAR CAN win at a big event with over 3000 cars.
          Thanks for letting me toot my own horn, I still can't believe it.

            Thanks SNKEBIT! How's life treating You?
            So, what kind of work are you doing on that beautiful yellow Mopar from heaven?
            It must be paying well, or the Frankencuda would be getting some Love and we all would be getting updates.

            it was a lot of fun. I met a bunch of great people and I was amazed at how little is known o
            about these Barracudas and how few there are at an event this size. Your car will be just as nice and probably even better if you keep at it. they are so much fun to drive. I love this car!!!

              Yup, Cuda is getting new interior, carbs, tires, fuel system, some other stuff to make driveable for a year or two. Then back here for a new paint job.... pay is good.
              Really want to get back on my stuff!!!

              BTW, I would trade my Viper for the AAR in a heartbeat...……… :)

                The Mopar Nationals in Oak Harbor, Wa. A week ago was pretty awesome as Well!
                While there, I discovered my over heating issue. It would seem as though I'm using the wrong sized crank and water pulleys.
                I have the new one coming, hopefully they are the ones anyways. See picture of the tiny crank pulley I've been running. L.OL!!!

                Well, that's a done deal. Now I'm trying to correct some gauge issues! I'd love it if I had some good original Rallye dash gauges that aren't smoked. Wish me luck!

                  Hay! I have a chance to win the National Home build award from Good guys if I get the most votes. You don't have to be a member to vote. I would appreciate it if I could get fellow Mopar enthusiasts support. It would be nice to have a Mopar represented instead of another Mustang or Chevelle.
                  Here is the link. Mine is #11. Thanks everyone!!! WWW.good-guys.com/homebuilt18
