    New member trying to learn the rules and navigate the website. I am old school and not the greatest with computers. But what's not to love about A Bodies? There isn't one in everybodies back yard and they have a certain mystic unequaled by any Mustang or Camaro. I have owned several barracudas (60's vintages), one 1968 Coronet RT which I did a complete restoration on and loved...and a charger. At one point in my life everything had to be sold. Now that I am in my 50's IM BACK BABY. I have several Barracudas again and am looking forward to the knowledge available on this site. I am still working on getting my wife to like these cars as I am a flip phone user and need her expertise to post pic's etc off her smart phone. LOL Thanks fellow Mopar Fans!

        Thank you for the welcome...and all others...It looks like you are in Georgia now. I am not far from Park Forest and have blown through there several times. Its odd how small the world is and the coincidences that go along with that. I bought the first Barracuda now that I am back from Georgia Mountain Cars. I am restoring it for my wife so I can use her phone...LOL

                We have a member here that found a nice citron 3 pedal 66. His screen name is @Capt46 . If you search you can find his pictures. I think he sold it but he may still have some parts.

                thank you for the overwhelming welcomes from the other boyzz from Illinois...and the other states as well and Canada. Any of you old school guys from Illinois Remember the rock band "The Boyzz From Illinois"? you can catch some old video footage of them on you tube...one of the oldies was "Too wild to tame" a Hemi Barracuda comes to mind. How about yours?
