That Cuda (Above) is the car I saw many years back in a magazine.
I liked it so much I tried to copy the look.  My old '72 Cuda as it looked in '85.

That's so weird....when I saw the first picture...I said to myself..."I remember that car", but know it makes sense that it would likely have been your car I remember seeing all those years ago... :twothumbsup:

Kind of stemmed from the Van thing in the late 70's early 80's. Flares, square headlights, crushed velvet etc.

And long hair and bell bottoms and wallabies and untrimmed bushes...
Life is to be viewed thru the windshield. Not rear view mirror.

I've been watching a lot of old b-movies on Tubi channel, decided to watch Velvet Vampire from 1971, what to my surprise 1971 'Cuda Convertible.  Can't really make out the billboard for engine but looks pretty sweet, Curious Yellow.  Maybe it will show up again.

You can see an air cleaner snorkel so it's not a 340/440-6 or Hemi.... So 383 Magnum since in 71 there were no 440 Magnums in Cuda's....
