Junkyard 'Cuda Rescue, With Nitrous Oxide! - Roadkill Episode 11
On this episode of Roadkill, David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of HOT ROD
magazine fly out of town, buy a car from a junkyard, make it run and drive,
do burnouts, add Nitrous, drag race
twice, almost die, and the auction off the car at the end. The scene begins
at CTC Auto Ranch in Denton, Texas, where the guys score a '67 Plymouth
Barracuda with a 360 V8, but without a carburetor, interior, glass, or
brakes. By the time they sort out a number of other mechanical woes,
they're off for some burnouts and some racing at North Star Dragway, right
next to the Auto Ranch. Then it's a 300-mile drive to Houston for the NMCA
Lone Star Nationals race. But, as you've come to expect from these guys,
that doesn't exactly go smoothly. But then they add NOS Nitrous and it makes everything ok as they hang
out with Jeff Lutz and Tim Reed from HOT ROD Drag Week right before they
have to sell the car and hit the plane home.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.

(Restoration of a 1967 Plymouth Barracuda) PROJECT FISH - PART 01
Outside of my airsoft hobby, I have this one. "Muscle" cars. Funny, in
THIS generation, it is called "muscle" cars..... Way back then, it was
just a car.....
Maybe this generation discerns the difference between "ricer", "rice
burner", "tuners", "classic car" and "muscle cars".
This is my friends 1967 Plymouth Barracuda. It will be a LOW COST,
ground-up restoration. No media blasting, not even sand blasting. Cannot
afford that "luxury". I will be using various ways to remove the old
paint, and spot checking for rust holes.
Part one is rust check and paint removal. As well as showing the small
block 340 that will go in the car affter we prep and paint the "engine
This is the first of MANY videos that will span the course of over one

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.
Enjoy the Ride,

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?"

Triple Black Attack: 1970 440 6-Pack 'Cuda - /BIG MUSCLE
Each and every muscle car enthusiast has that one experience that has
helped define the way in which they view the automobile. For Northern
California's John Cross that experience came by way of riding in the back
of his cousins 1970 440 6-Pack Plymouth 'Cuda when he was a kid. It was a
car that provided him with memories, stories and of course, a goal - that
being, to one day own the very car which got his engine running all those
years ago. It's now 2012, 42 years after that first faithful ride in the
very 'Cuda you're about to see. This time however it resides in John's
garage, not his cousins, which can mean only one thing... Sometimes dreams
do come true.
