1966 Plymouth Barracuda comes to life!
Start up after piecing together my father's 1966 Plymouth Barracuda Formula
"S" Started like a champ, 80psi oil pressure cold idle, 900 rpm. It's a
good day! First time it moves under it's own power since put into long term
storage in April 1978.
Dodge Charger 1968 blown hemi
this is Nick suckow's car in September 2008 before it was stolen. If you
have any information about this dodge charger please let me know.
http://www.weau.com/home/headlines/33732019.html# Back in 1984,
high-schooler Nick Suckow bought himself a '68 Dodge Charger. He was gonna
fix it up and roar down the road. Nick was born a gearhead. A hot rod. From
the first time he drove, he drove hard. The redline was always at hand.
When he joined the Army out of high school and shipped to Germany he got
hooked on the autobahn, where you could ease over to the left lane, stomp
the foot-feed flat, and shoot, they just let you go. "Fast," Nick likes to
say, "isn't the same as reckless." All that racing around, and then life
served up a grim little joke: The day Nick Suckow wrecked - the day his
life changed forever, the last day he ever stood on his own two feet - he
was going 35 miles per hour with his seatbelt on. He'd been married two
weeks. He and his wife were on their way home from their Wisconsin
honeymoon, making the run back to Texas in Nick's Gran Prix. They were
towing a rusted-out Ford Bronco - Nick always had his eye out for a cheap
beater, and he had found one up north. On a rough stretch of road Nick
crawled in the Bronco to keep it straight. The front tire hooked a pothole.
The tie rod snapped. The seat belt broke. He landed in the ditch. The
Bronco landed on his neck. Nick says he remembers the sun in his eyes. Then
the darkness closing in. A lot of years, then. Hospitals. Home. Hospitals.
The marriage ended. Back to Wisconsin. Rehab, and more hospitals. The speed
demon, not going anywhere fast. But eventually he had them drag that
Charger out. Arranged to get it in the shop. Whenever he had a little
money, he'd get some work done. "They whittled away at it," he says. "I
told my mom, if I die, dump my ashes in the fuel tank, and I'll go down the
drag strip one last time." Seventeen years. Seventeen years of learning how
to live from the neck up. Seventeen years of whittling. Hed show you the
latest pictures - a quarter panel here, a shot of primer there, a couple
tires. He'd get down to the shop, supervise in person when he could. He
couldn't run the wrenches, but he could run the show. He'd sneak out for a
little speed fix sometimes - once a paraplegic friend strapped Nick's chair
to a motorcycle sidecar and they blew down the road, one good pair of arms
between'em. Nick says it was good to feel the wind on his face. On a sunny
day in October of 2006, Nick Suckow's pals helped him slide from one set of
wheels into another. They strapped him in the passenger side, and you could
see the anticipation on his face, even behind the mirrored shades. The car
cruised out of the lot, and then picked up speed, the blower making a Mad
Max whine as the wheels warmed to the road. After a nice easy ride, the
Charger pulled to a stop on an isolated little stretch of blacktop. There
was a quiet moment, before the driver wound that 426 fuel-injected blown
Hemi up tight. Then Nick Suckow gave the nod and went fishtailing down the
blacktop on a journey that had never really ended.
1964 Plymouth Barracuda
A very nice example....the first year for the 273 c.i. V8 in Valiant and
Dart! Plymouth did a nice job in having something really sporty to do
battle with the soon to be released Mustang! The back window looked
nice, but was somewhat impractical because of high solar loads in the
Summer. The back seat did fold so that there was a nice flat load floor
contiguous with the trunk..but the decklid was small, so loading large
objects had to be done through the doors.
1972 Plymouth 'Cuda Restoration Process
A 1972 Plymouth 'Cuda Restoration Process. 340 Automatic. 10 to 1
compression. This car was the dream of Dan Wells to complete, but he died
of a rare blood disease before it was completed. Every year there is a
poker run in his memory to raise money for local people that are suffering
from other rare diseases and there is a scholarship that is given out to a
Centralia student that wishes to further his education in the automotive
industry. To see full pictures go to www.deansbodyshop.com
1964 Plymouth Barracuda
This car was the kind of shape that got the eye of the folks over at Ford!
The Mustang fastback would
share the overall idea, albeit with back window of smaller dimension. The
Marlin and the Charger were of similar shape too! This one had a beautiful
paint job, looks like original interior...and that V8 offered for the first
time in Barracuda and Dart midway through the 1964 model year. The four
speed makes it super cool!
Test Driving 1969 Plymouth Road Runner 383 V8 4 BBL Four Speed
I thought you'd like a look at this 1969 Plymouth Road Runner in action.
It's powered by a 383 V8, with an Edelbrock intake, 4 BBL carb, coated
headers, and Air Grabber induction. All the power is being funneled through
a hurst shifted four-speed manual back to an 8 3/4 rear. This car runs out
strong and it's in absolutely immaculate condition. It's as clean in the
engine bay and underneath the car as it is on the outside. The interior
looks showroom new as well. This car is a proven show winner as well. I hop
you find it interesting....thanks for watching!

as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
