'2' GREAT works/cars/classics!

This OLD man's first, new car was a 1973 'Cuda (Plymouth).

I've always been a MOPAR guy.


WONDERFUL work above!

My BEST to you and yours,

ROTL/RuntOfTheLitter

HELLO, again!

I paid $3,200 for it in 1973.

In 1974 I traded it in for a 1974 Roadrunner (360 cu. inch four barrel motor)

HELLO! The 'Roadrunner' was a BLACK with WHITE 'trim/tracks', 360 BIG FOUR BARREL engine with 'tie down hood pins' and 'hood scoop.

It also had a 'hand crank' SUN ROOF and mag wheels and twin chrome exhaust mufflers.

The interior had THICK PLUSH carpet with a WOOD GRAINED DASH/GLOVE BOX with the 'roadrunner' on it.

It was a 'slapstick' AUTOMATIC and was BIG and FAST!

I later sold it to get married. (Should have stayed with the CAR!) WINK

My BEST again, ROTL

Oh both are nice. But I kinda like the unique looks of the 'Cuda, so I suppose I would pick that one.

OK I am an idiot. I didn't vote on this because I only glanced.
I thought this was a photo of a studio setup or a set of models, taken by a semi-pro.
This is a fantastic drawing and exactly what I am striving for.
I'm refusing to use any 3D apps though. Thinking I need to.

Hemi 'cuda FTW!
I hated that paint scheme, but who cared with they motors they carried. :D

Don't worry mate, I'm not even a semipro with 3D, and a totally useless with a photo camera... but if you thought it was a semipro photo, it means I've improve my skills! =P

The 'cuda was black initially, but green has a better contrast... maybe you find this other [link] more of your like... ;)

Thank you!
