@Cuda Cody   can you provide us with any updates (pics! pics!) to your HemiCuda project??

Looks like the paint was finished a while back ... it has to be rolling by now ... maybe even driving??

Can you give us more than a sneak peak of Enzo's future ride??
Cheers!
Tom

Was hoping that our "founding father" @Cuda Cody would have given us an update on his HemiCuda project.

He must be busy ... being a business man, husband, dad and stocking up on supplies like water and toilet paper to ride out the covid-19 crisis.

So this investigative journalist had to do some sleuthing on his own to find out how the HemiCuda project, aka Enzo's future high school car, was coming along ...

This is BS23R0B159482, 1 of about 652 made for the U.S. market, and of those 1 of 368 with an automatic. It is finished in EV2 Tor-Red with a V1X black vinyl top and a H6X9 black vinyl interior. Interesting that this car does NOT have the Hockey Stick Stripes on it. It's not coded for them ... but that has never stopped anyone from putting them on a car that isn't coded for them. It seems that practically every HemiCuda you see today has the iconic Hockey Stick stripes on them whether they came with them or not. Nice to see one "in the buff" without them.

Certainly looks like this picture could have been taken at the Mopar Taj-Mahal up in Brush Prairie Washington. Has that wide open spacious storage packed full of cars indicative of the "Taj" ... but it does seem to be missing the drum set surrounded by the Vipers??

The paint appears to be pretty thick on this Fender Tag, but all of the codes are still clearly visible and readable. We can see that this car is equipped with the A32 Super Performance 4:10 geared Dana Axle Pkg, A62 Rallye Gauges Pkg, B51 Power Disc Brakes, C16 Center Console and the booming R11 Music Master 2W AM Radio among other things.

Nicely detailed under-hood. Everything with the engine compartment looks clean and fresh.

No explantion or comment necessary!!

And underneath that man-hole sized Shaker lies the twin Carter AFB's. I like this pic ... gives nice detail of the carbs and the progressive linkage.

Well as it turns out, this "investigative journalist" never made it to Brush Prairie Washington thanks to the covid-19 virus cancelling my flight. So I had to do the next best thing ... use the internet to find an EV2 '70 HemiCuda like Cody's. This particular car was actually in Detroit, the "Motor City" from which it originally came from. It was found on the GR Auto Gallery of Detroit's website. Even though the car has been sold, they still have it up on their website. If you would like to see more of this car, bang it here to their website while you still can https://www.grautogallery.com/vehicles/2534/1970-Plymouth-Hemi-Cuda
