My youngest brother and Dad have challengers:
70 red 4 speed 360
70 lime green 383
71 plum crazy /6.
I wish we had our 70 Cuda. It was turned into a race car back when they cut on good cars to make race cars. It was originally red on red 440 6 pack auto. We owned it and raced it from '95 till we sold it in 07.

I don't have an E body, but I lust after an AAR 'Cuda.
This one...

My N code, column shift, original paint, only number matching car. I keep it because I have owned it since 1986. It was a better car when I was 20 something than 50 something.

My dads that I built a few years ago, didn’t do body or paint.

Looks like I might be getting a second E body... One of my old cars might be coming back home...

U-Code, auto, original FC7, black interior, rear spoiler car. Was customed painted in 1971. Original owner owned a speed shop (Auto Racing Equipment Company) and this was his daily fair weather driver. I grew up near where the car was driven and then stored for years, 1st saw it in person when I was 18 (53 now) always wanted it. Finally bought it from the original owners family in 2016 after he passed away. Hardly any rust. Has a service replacement block in it now, 2 fender tag car. Paint is really starting to flake off but I like it the way it is :)

Drive it all the time.

Was that your retirement fund? I know my uncle had to sell his '68 Formula S in his older age.
After I finished my hemi car the cuda didn’t get driven much. The cuda was not for sale but word of mouth led a guy to my door. After a year of talking I sold the car to him. Tough to see it go but I was not using it.

This is my 1970 R/T real 440 V-Code 6-pack, 4 speed, Super Track Pack, etc...

C70r-web.jpg

And this is what it looked like back in the mid 80's... A feature car in Feb 86 in Car Craft magazine

1970 Chall-1.jpg

Back in 2005 it had a full rotisserie restoration to the current color. The only things that are not on the fender tag are the color ( original was EF8 green),
the shaker ( original was the R/T hood) and the tail stripe ( original was a white longitudinal down the entire side).

We have owned it since 2018. It was only 1.5mi away from where we live and the guy hardly ever took it out!!

I think it's cool to see cars that have been with, and changed with their owners over time. Glad you hung on to it and are still enjoying it!
