Do you all realize that in all these years we’ve never set our collective CC eyes on a gen2 Barracuda? Yes, the gen1 has been lavished with our amorous attentions. And Tom Klockau found a gen3 at a car show (natch). But no ’67-’69 Barracuda anywhere here, and given that it’s the best of the bunch, that needed to be rectified. And so when I saw one coming up behind me, I grabbed my camera and began shooting, into my outside rear view mirror, of course.
Here it comes, in a rather odd shade of…fuschia? Or just well-faded red?
I’ll let you all decide how this color came to be, but it doesn’t look any too original to me. And looking at this picture right now, I can’t help but think that the Avanti had more than a bit of influence on this car.
There it goes, the best handling pony car of its era. Now that I know the general whereabouts of its home, I will find it, and promise a full CC within six months!
