Well changing a bulb ends up being a project for me.
Getting the Cuda to be more street friendly and the Duster was in a garage in Arizona since the early 90's, it's so neat.

Looks like your workload just got lighter, unless you have big plans. Nice cars.

What's in the Cuda now, that doesn't make it street friendly ?

How about some more pictures of these cars. Do you have any interior or under hood shots.

I've never had the pleasure of driving a Cuda "S" 383 car, but I'm going to guess that it's a hand full even when stock.

You know when tires spin and smoke, then stop squealing but the smoke keeps pouring out well that would be it.

Ah, the good old days. In 1975 I was driving a 69 Coronet R/T 440-4 speed convertible. It's to bad that I had the " its only a car mentality back then ". Love to have that car today

They both appear to be pretty clean cars. Still love looking at the Barracuda. Like to see some interior pictures of both.
Where exactly is Oakwood, Ont. ?

Real nice cars, love that barracuda. I had a 383 in an early A Valiant that had a 6 in it original and dam cold it do a burn out. This was 30 years ago now though.

Oakwood , 40 minutes north of Oshawa
What do you think of the changes on the Cuda
Likely going to sell the Duster
