Default The Crunchy Cuda: MCACN 2078??

Lets see: Barn built? Yuh-huh. Shops done? Sorta. House built? Yep. Bank account exhausted? Ha! So what's one to do? Why, buy another car!

Yes, I've boughtened (boughtened?) another project car that epitomizes what 1970 was all about: big motors, big horsepower, and big fun things that shake! While the Crusty Cuda restoration is postponed, er... slow to start due to helping a buddy out who lost cars in a shop fire, I've acquired her big brother with the hopes of bringing it to MCACN sometime in the future after Crusty. Hey? How's about a double unveiling?!

Why Crunchy? Well, Crusty has some rust, but Crunchy is, well... pretty Crunchy. But, it's a worthy project for an idiot like me!

Enter 440 cubic inches of Mopar madness and top it with a trio of thirsty Holley carbs, and put the icing on top of that with a big scoop that shakes and bounces like a pair of lost puppies in a tight sweater. Yes, a simple math equation from basic Algebra says B5/V1W+H6XW(V+D21+N96A33)70BS23= BtotheB So that equates to a B5 Blue, White top, White interior, with a 440-6bbl, Hemi 4spd, Shaker Hood, 3.54 Track Pack Dana axle on a 1970 Cuda which equals Bad to the Bone!

More to come on this colossal financial flop of a decision!!

Cheers

Thanks guys!! I appreciate the comments and compliments!

The Fall?? I don't know about that, Danno. You coming down to help? You might be careful doing that since I may have you help me put in more fence! But but, heck....I'll give it a shot! And Bill, good question on which one to do first and it'll be the 340 Shaker that gets the pole positon with some fresh PPG on it. At least that's the plan for now.

More to come with such memorable moments as, "Is the plural of Cuda, Cudii??" And, "How come I started with two cars now only have parts to finish one!?"

Cheers,

Dave
