          Reminds me a bit of the '66 that LilCuda used to own and that I used to own. He did live in Campbell for a while as well. Not the same car as the other one had vinyl top trim. Not sure if you ever saw it.

            It was a cool car. I bought it not running in late 1980 from a friend of mine. Put a 273 that I had recently rebuilt into it and painted it black the following year. It had been rode hard and put away wet several times before my buddy got it in 1975 and then several times while he had it. Here's what it looked like right before I took it in for paint...and a couple of pics of the shirt I had air brushed by Joe Sunzeri of San Jose (he does the artwork for the Mopar Alley shirts and publications). He did the shirt for me in 1983 in a trade for a Dart 273 four barrel air cleaner. I've still got the shirt and he still has the air cleaner...

              @Jim Lusk that is all kinds of awesome

              Mine can look like that. The attached picture is with the 4link at highest setting, ignore the crappy mustang wheels (245/45-17s). I now have 255/40-18s which gets that ass up there - the 2nd pictures is at the lowest setting. (Upside to the pandemic, I drove my car on Friday to a customer site near Mission College, 101 wasn't to bad)

              Fuji!!!!
              Good to hear you buddy, I am using the F20C motor and driveline which has the VTEC technology. Let me tell you when that kicks in, it feels like a turbo, supercharger or nitrous. So much fun. Did you get the Duster done?

              Guy the Duster is almost there. Painted and interior is finished. Still working on the upgrading the suspension and brakes. The 66 Satellite I have is another story.Maybe in another couple years. Adding the 5.7 Hemi is alot more work then I wanted. Should of just left the Poly 318 in there.

                Early Barracudas NEED the rear wheelwells filled out. They look bad with skinny 13" tires.
                Just like a 68-70 Charger or a 71=74 Road Runner looks with 5" wide wheels...
                Dusters are on the list as well. IMG_2283.JPG

                  It is!
                  When you have time check out my build (the link is in blue) when I started I was happy to get over 1000 views. Now I am over 40k. Three years of working on the car.

                    Yep, bad timing. Here's a pic of the day it left with it's new owner. Sadly, it sounds like it has been sitting in a carport in Shingle Springs not being driven last I heard. IMG_0919.JPG

                      Hey Joe, do you still have the Valiant? You know I sold the red one a few years ago, right? Now I have a low mileage '67 Belvedere II. It's a 383 4 speed car.
