    My buddy has a SPECTACULAR Hemi Cuda and Challenger collection. About a dozen four speed cars, and about half are convertibles.

    Oh and he has the nicest of the 8 '69 Trans Am convertibles made.

    The black and orange cars are GTO Judge Ram Air IV 4-Speed convertibles.

    Recently he bought one of the 2 69 Camaro Pace Cars that actually were used in the race. It's got handles around the back seat for dignitaries to hold onto while sitting on the car with their feet on the back seat. He also now has to Yenko Camaro's. And an ultra low mileage Mangusta he bought out of Switzerland. Oh and the winningest Cobra not owned by Shelby, the old **** Smith car that he bought from Wayne Carini. He's got some disposable income apparently.

    LOL he does have a couple of small kids, not sure if they're boys or girls. Can't remember. He is truly a car guy though. He's got about a $3M house with tennis courts, and he uses the courts to store parts cars!

    We had a guy in western Kansas who had 70 of the desirable mopars all like new. Superbirds, every one you could think of. He sold the collection a few years back. His home is a good indicator that he made out pretty well.

    The Cobra Jet will likely be in the 850 HP range like the earlier ones. I was standing behind one while it dyno'd. I about needed a new pair of shorts when he hammered down!

    Nope......the war is on and Ford ain't stopping at 850hp
    The article says 60 to be built with 1,100hp. They don't wanna keep up with dodge.....they plan on driving around. Price was estimated in the $100,000 range.

    ET's in the 8.5 second range through the quarter

    Well, they already do mid 8's with 850 HP. And the Dodge is street legal, the CJ is not. It's sold with a Part Number and Serial Number, no VIN.

    I'll stick with my 68 Formulas S Cuda, one of 64 Convertibles made with big block, 4 speed. Plane Jane white wrapper, granny car. Some day I might actually get it off the roto body and back on the road. I was thinking about sending it out to Oregon to Mark Worman, but I'd have to sell my gun collection to afford him, and I don't know how many years it takes to get on his list and get it finished.

    I went to high school in the late '60's and there was a class-mate who bought a Cuda with the 340 Six-pack engine in Orange. He kept it forever after totaling it, and then back in the early 2000's he resurrected the automobile and put it back on the street again. That had to have been a pretty rare car.
    If the Cuda comes back, it will sell. I am now retired with a blue-collar pension so I won't be affording a new Cuda. :-(

    My salivary glands are still watering after looking at that collection shown above. Wow $$$$$
