Our '65 "Cuda

    Newer Older

    Oh, how Sammy and I loved this '65 Barracuda. Most of our cars have been pretty basic, utilitarian vehicles, mainly wagons and our current Honda CR-V (an SUV). But this "Cuda was for fun, though, as you can see, with the back seats laid down flat, it was utilitarian enough to fit in a couple of German shepherds. It was our first new car, and how we hated to part with it when we had to trade it in for a big, boring Chevy Bel Aire wagon when we fled the east coast in 1967 for sunny, snow-free, humidity-free California. That "Cuda had a snappy V8 engine in it, and I'll admit to having had more fun in it than I probably should have.

      Neat shot! The dogs look like they had a great view through that big rear window.

      I traded my 57 Chevy 7 cylender for a 66 GTO with 8 working cylinders back in 66. Had no dogs to worry about back then.

      Cool! I remember my uncle buzzing around in a car similar to this! He seemed to be having a lot of fun, too.

      What a beauty. I've sent your pictures of the Sheperd's sitting by your firstborn to many people who have children with dogs.
      What great memories you have.
