Putting the Muscle back into Classic Cars

Graveyard Cuda

October 20, 2020

Season 2 of Rides Down Under Workshop Wars saw us building a 55 Pontiac Gasser, Warsquaw, for Irmi, this season saw us building Shane’s 1974 Plymouth Baracuda, named the Graveyard Cuda.  Shane has owned his muscle car for many years and had just given it a coat of “Californian Suede” Satin black and a hot motor.  He was never really fussed with making it pretty but only focused on a fast, dirty and evil-looking ride, as you can see in Episode 1 of Season 3 of Rides Down Under Workshop Wars on 7 Plus. https://7plus.com.au/rides-down-under-workshop-wars?episode-id=RIDU03-001 

He drove it like he hated it and the Cuda had definitely taken some punishment on the track, now it was time to clean her up, make her go even faster (of course) but at the same time retain the evil theme.  Boy were we in for some surprises on the way.
