1967 Formula S Plymouth Barracuda - Redefining Mopar muscle cars
This black 1967 Formula S Plymouth Barracuda is a driver's car and owner John Rocks proudly displays it at local car shows. John refers to his work as a restofication, meaning that it may not be a number 1 show car but it looks almost as good as new. John is an expert in Mopars and ells the story about how he worked on Mopars as a young man and we show pictures of his original 1967 convertible Plymouth Barracuda. We also get a peak at his white 1967 Plymouth Barracuda coupe. The contrast of these two cars sitting side by side is pretty special. Hang in there and take an afternoon drive with John as he shows off the cornering performance of his black Formula S Plymouth Barracuda. The white Barracuda is not too happy about it but you can only drive one car at a time. This video includes the use of a camera jib (crane) for some incredibly smooth shots. The use of the GoPro was a learning experience as this was the first time we used it to capture some scenes of John and his car speeding around corners. This is one videographer that had to hold on tight and some of the footage was not usable as I went flying around in my seat.

In Torque We Trust - 1967 Plymouth Barracuda Formula S
Mr. Bob Gough's family moved to France for a few years when he was thirteen years-old and thus he grew up idolizing European sports cars and looking down on American muscle. That was until he discovered the 1967 Plymouth Barracuda Formula S. The 'Cuda Formula S was upgraded in-house by Plymouth with suspension and brakes that allow it to keep up with European sports cars in the twisties (that is, all but the tightest twisties). He purchased this car over twenty-three years ago and has gradually upgraded it. Bob replaced the transmission with a Tremec 5-speed and now runs a 340 cubic inch V8, rather than the original 273 ci engine. He's also replaced the original 14" wheels with custom 15" steelies. And the only suspension mod that Bob has made is replacing the original shocks with nitrogen shocks that vastly improve the handling. The Plymouth handles so well in fact, that he frequently surprises sports car owners on drives. And once the curves straighten out, its ample torque allows it to "leave Porsches behind." You do need to exercise caution entering corners though, because the Forumla S is prone to rear wheel lock-up—so early braking is a must! Even though Bob pushes the 'Cuda, it's actually docile to drive, "but who drives a car like that?" Drive Tastefully® http://Petrolicious.com http://facebook.com/Petrolicious
