    Amazing, Beautiful ,eye Catching ... — Considering I paid with taxes 4,300 dollars brand new and todays value would be in the 100,000 dollar plus range speaks for it self .. .I kept the car Factory Stocked except for deep dish Mag Wheels ... I never raced this car on a track ,and sold it in 1984 with 34,000 miles on it and looking show-room new ..

    Pros: Amazing beautiful styled car ... Great acceleration ,300 horsepower on a light car ...

    Cons: Brakes were not good enough to stop this car as it should , especially at high speeds ... Handling also should have been alot better for a car like this ...

    1971 Barracuda With A Big Block 426 Hemi — The performance is excellent, it has needed a few repairs, it is a beautiful car, its gas mileage isn't that great, the car is amazing and turns quite the amount of heads. It costs a lot to insure and I'm loving it

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

    Pros: I love the raw power this car spits out when the gas pedal is pushed t the floor.

    Cons: It costs a lot to insure and is heavy on gas

    If You Have The Money It's An Amazing Car — in short with a 426 hemi in it you can pull a super fast quarter mile and still hit pretty high top speeds, the 426 was the only hemi they ever put in a barracuda, it's considered to be the king of the road in the 70s

    Pros: pure horse power

    Cons: takes a lot of gas

    One Fast Fish. — Loved '71 for the 4 headlight grill. Lines were really hot, and loved the slapstick 727 Tourque flight tranny.

    Pros: All the above

    Cons: Could have had tighter steering.

    It Has Been A Privilege To Drive Thit Holy Grail — Not many people had the change to get in a car like this one. Our's was a 1971 'Cuda Convertible with the 340 engine and the Hurst 4sp transmission. The car was originaly Plum Crazy purple as you can see in the engine bay pictures, but was repainted in horrible school bus yellow by the previous tasteless owner. Even if our car need a total restoration, it was incedibly fun to drive. It was also very rusty and would have need a complete restoration. Of course it doesn't handle as well as my new Mustang, but it wasn't that bad. I did not had the chance to try it as I would have wish because I was only 14 at that time, but my dad let me drove it a couple of time on the countryside highways. Accelerations were impressive, and to be honest, I haven't try hard to beat the clock of the quater-mile because I did not had the experience to try it. My father gave me some ride hard enough to be breathless a couple of days, and be sure I'll keep that in mind for the rest of my life. I will remember the tire screaming when he was shifting from second to third at about 75km/h... Engine noise, G-force, hooaaa... I knew I will have miss the car because we had to sell in in '85. We got a big... $3500 for it. Today in that condition it would worth a least $30k, or about $75k in showroom condition. even if these car were sensible to rust, were a pain to start in moist conditions, driving these clunkers is an experience every car lover should try once in a lifetime.

    Pros: Incredible acceleration, stand in the high top-5 best looking car of the
    area,

    Cons: Wind noise even with  top up, rear view, hard clutch and soft body
    structure. Extremerly hard to find in any condition, wich mean they are
    very pricy.
