70 Barracuda Convertible Adventure

Well I heard a story from a customer about someone north of DeKalb having a 70 Barracuda Convertible.

So I followed the "directions" north and discovered approximately where the house was. I drove up a driveway half a mile long, all covered in ice. I get to the house and there are a few older cars and trucks in the yard. I go and knock on the door.

A nice guy comes to the door and asked who I was. I introduced myself, fellow mopar guy, heard you he was a mopar guy and went looking for the legend of a Barracuda Convertible.

So we started chatting and I told him some of my adventures, showed him my websites. And he showed me around his collection.

We walked outside to his little row of cars in front. A 58 Chevy Bel Air that needed work. Then there was a dodge truck. He said he was going to junk it, so I could have it.... FOR FREE. So I have to head back there when it gets warmed to get the old girl running.

Then we headed to the barn where he had his son's Sport Satellite sitting, an original 318 car, he has the original 318 and a built up 383.

Next we walked over to where he had is two dogs, and a Buick GS. Very nice dogs, not so nice Buick.

We went inside to chat and warm up, the Sun was going down. Then he offered to show me the other two cars.

The first was a sweet 70 Charger R/T SE u-code car. All painted, waiting for income to finish it. The next was the Barracuda. An original 318 car, but has Cuda parts in it now. It has been sitting for two years, awaiting a few key parts.

We talked about parts we both needed and I told him to email me later and we can figure out if either of us have parts the other needs.

Then I left and returned home, another sucessfull adventure.
