    Here's my 1967 Barracuda. Numbers matching 273 with 3 speed auto. I'm in the process of sprucing it up. Getting it painted its original PP1 paint soon. Replacing the trunk lid, it was damaged by a tree before I got it.

    Are there any members here around the Portland area? Or are we few and proud out here?

            Thanks for the welcome everyone. Here's a little video of it running. It still runs, just working on getting a new coat of paint slapped on the body.

                Thank you guys. I'm somewhat new to Mopars, so I'm sure I might get a few opinions in the future.

                  I can't remember his name, but an older guy that works at Mike's Auto off Cornell invited me. Maybe I'll check it out this Sunday.

                  Portland is known for Powell's Books, Voodoo Donuts, and lame Antifa demonstrations....

                  Thank you everyone. I found a much better condition trunk lid. I'm getting close to giving it a 'best as I can' paint job. Single stage. Original PP1.

                  Yes!
                  I think singe stage is best.
                  I just had to change from Sherwin Williams to PPG because SW can't mix Y3 in single stage anymore.

                  I've painted all my cars more than one time.
                  It happens when one drives them.
                  Dings, body damage and rust you know.
                  What you would call driver paint jobs mostly.
