YAK Car Pic of the Day

'67 Plymouth Barracuda, Hamburg, N.Y.

This photo was taken along 18 Mile Creek in Hamburg in the summer of 1974, shortly before I sold my 1967 Plymouth Barracuda to a guy my mother worked with. Rust was starting to take hold, and no $1.29 can of spray paint could hide my inept bondo work.The chrome-reverse rims were a nice touch though.

    Nice looking ride, Jim. It looks like you did the best you could against the forces of decay and rot. But there’s only so much redemption spray paint and bondo can provide. I know; my ’60 VW’s floorpan was a patch work of riveted galvanized steel pieces which eventually gave way when I ran out of secure sheet metal to rivet to.

    I DRAG RACED A “CUDDA” DOWN OCEAN BLVD IN NORFOLK VA IN MY ’68 442 BACK IN MY (MUCH) YOUNGER DAYS. I ‘WON” A $70.00 TICKET AND A BUTT CHEWING FROM MY COMMANDING OFFICER. NEVER LIKED ‘CUDDAS”.
