There’s been a lot of rumors about the Barracuda making a comeback in 2021 or 2022, and if it’s true they definitely picked the right car to make a comeback with. I’ve always loved the Cuda, my favorite car of all time. Also referred to as a ‘ Pony car ‘ the Plymouth Barracuda is a two-door muscle car that was manufactured from 1964 to 1974, which actually pre-dated the Ford Mustang by about two weeks. At different times it was available in fastback, hardtop, and convertible versions.

Per Wikipedia¬† ” The 1971 Hemi ‘Cuda convertible is now considered one of the most valuable collectible muscle cars. Only thirteen were built, seven of which were sold domestically.¬† The most recent public sale was at the June 2014 Mecum auction in Seattle, where a blue on blue 4-speed sold for $3.5 million ( plus buyers premium ) ”

When I was a kid it was definitely the dream car to own, sleek, stylish, fast, and bad-ass. Other popular cars amongst kids of my day were of course the Mustang, Dart, Challenger, Shelby, Nova, Trans Am, GTO, Camaro, and Chevelle. If the Cuda does make a comeback I’ll be waiting like a little kid in a candy store, remembering the glorious days of my youth and misadventures.
