1967 Plymouth Barracuda

Sure, early 70's Plymouth 'Cudas are nice. They're all muscular, big, and mean, but you can keep 'em. This is my favorite Barracuda, 1967 through 1969 Formula S. 

Late at night, if I'm feeling all Mopar and sleepless, I'll surf looking for that one out there that's calling to me. The one the angry divorcee is selling for revenge on her soon to be ex. I know it's out there.

This one was shown by Michael Paulus of Loveland, Colorado. I don't think it's a real Formula S, but I'm not positive. Close enough though, it's pretty stock, and I don't have a major problem with clones.

The grill is good and so is the hood

Swim with the fish

Not as hulky as its later brothers.

1956 Chevrolet 210 Wagon

Here's another shrunken Hot Rod. This one is a 1956 Chevy 210 Wagon. I found a 1957 Chevy El Camino two-door Chopper Coupe like this at Colorado Auto and Parts Salvage Yard in Sheridan Colorado a while back.
I can't imagine where idea for this style of custom came from. Maybe someone needed a tighter turning radius? City parking? Wheelies?

This little trick is owned by Bruce Walden of Fort Collins. It's jacked up like an old school dragster, has beautiful body work, and is clean, clean, clean! Do I think it's cool? Yes. Do I want one? No.

The perspective seems wonky.
It's like I have a fisheye lense

Way up in the sky

Mr. Clean lives here.

1937 Studebaker Coupe Express

This 1937 Studebaker Coupe Express is all smooth, graceful, and voluptuous lines. The motor is a supercharged 289 with Avanti 2 Cam, R3 headers and a '58 Golden Hawk Air Box. The interior sports Avanti seats, steering column, and gauges. Built by Steve and Sandy Doerschlag.

1956 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery

I've always been a fan of a Sedan Delivery. When I was a kid I had a Matchbox car named "VanTastic". I'm pretty sure it was loaded up with a miniature Black Les Paul Standard and a '76 Marshall half stack; maybe that was just my imagination. Later in life I ended up using this Chevy Van instead.

Now I can't help imagining delivering a stack of fresh-baked, Rackable, HP, or IBM Xeon servers in this wonderful, blue beast!  The blown 350 should provide just the right dose of horsepower to get the systems on site, right on time. Sure, the carb and scoop block the view a bit, but that'd be a sacrifice I'd be willing to make.
