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.
