My High School Cuda — With the exception of finding available parts to maintain this vehicle over time I have repaired most things myself through out the years. One thing I love about this car I don't have to use my hand held computer to diagnose any problems. There is something to be said about old school mechanics. So easy to work on for the most part and lots of room to work in. I know those days are long gone but I sure miss the simpler times with cars.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: I have owned this car since 1975. It was my High School Hot Rod. I've had a lot of fun with this car over the years. Many good memories.  

Cons: With it's age has come some some issues over time. Would probably not have as many if I drove it more than I do.

This Is A Car For A Man Who Chooses To Make A Bold Personal Statement. — This car combines power and style in an artful and definitive way. A fun and stellar performer. Well designed and easy to maintain. Cost of acquisition may be high these days, but maintenance is not. If you choose to drive a car like this, be prepared for public response wherever you go...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's a street legend...and rightfully so.

Cons: Very expensive to obtain these days.

Power — My little fish is a real performer. 70-340 with ported X heads, RPM performer, 10.5 KB pistons, stock rods, MP.508 camand 750 Holly. Tans s a 904 with low gear set and stage 2 shift kit with a 3800 TCI converter all getting to the ground with a 8 3/4 4.10 sure grip. It does cost a bit to drive this car but what dosen't nowadays. I don't think I need to explain the fun factor it's a blast to drive sideways from a light. this was the car i learned how to drive on. I remember as a kid sitting in the back, and looking out the bubble window. That was before the seat belt law. One year when coming back from Spokane @ christmas, we hit ice an ended up on the guardrail in the mountains. Traffic slowed down and a guy with a winch came along a pulled us off.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Power

Cons: Power

A Lengend. — Hard to find, a ton of work, fair amount of $. But a load of fun to drive! You can't remove the smile that appears on your, and everyone else's, face. It's too bad it snows 4-5 months of the year.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Loads of power.

Cons: It's not sunny all the time.

70 Cuda = Fun — Its tough, fun and versetile. I put almost 100k miles on it as a daily driver after it was already an old car. It's a blast to drive - it handles good (for a muscle car), drag races ok, gets quasi good mpg, and doesn't break parts. It's held its value ok, too.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Well balanced, good power, handling, reliablity.  Looks ok too.

Cons: Could use a Hemi

70' Cuda — First thing this Car is a hemi acceleration daaaa its amazing this is a drag car remember it doesnt have the greatest handling or braking. On the 70 cuda the frame has an attendence to twist so be sure to check before purchacing. the look of the car is amazing although a little pricey to buy today very much worth it

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: HUGE ENGINE, good looks

Cons: Frame twists easier then others, Pricey

Orange Cars Are Orwesome — It is orange. Technically, it's a 'Cuda with a 340. It tops out at about 125. It gets there quickly. It has faux hood scoops. They look sexy. People give you thumbs up. It is orange. It sets off car alarms. The exhaust pipes come through the body. It is so loud there's no point in playing music. It idles at 1000rpm. The cam is lumpy. You can turn the steering wheel with your pinky. I raced an M5 on a mountain in the rain. He lost because we tied. It is orange.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Color. Sound. Peeling out at 70.
