About CudaChick1968’s Garage


About me and my passion for cars

I admire anything American made that can get out of its own way, but I've always had a soft spot for Mopars.

I've owned my 1968 Plymouth Barracuda Fastback since April 9, 1991; bought it for $250 and it's now insured for $70K. It's come a lonnnnnnnnng way! Aside from farming out the paint and body work, I've done it all myself along with invaluable help and great advice over the years.

Owner / Operator of PHOENIX SPECIALTY COATINGS, custom powder coating for the automotive / motorcycle industry and pro builders. Visit my website at

My fiance Billy and I are Hurricane Katrina survivors who relocated to northwest Tennessee in September, 2006 from the New Orleans area (there's pictures of the load-out in the Slimer folder). And no, I'm not just the bookkeeper either ... I grew up working on cars and building engines, love to get down and dirty and fix things right the first time. (My older brother never liked to help and wasn't exactly mechanically inclined, so it was always me out in the garage helping dad work on his stock cars for as long as I can remember.)

Other projects/cars: 1948 altered known as The MOB Fiat, 1976 Pontiac Astre with fresh 355 sbc, TH350, 8 3/4 Mopar rear and too many upgrades to mention (FOR SALE/TRADE -- all considered), a '76 Chevy Vega pro street, two 1983 D150 pickups and a '78 Malibu Classic Station Wagon.

My first car

1969 Chevy Impala 396 a/t

My dream car

I already own it.

I truly admire girls that are not scared to work, and when that is on cars, such is truly beautiful, then to be an entrepreneur, awesome. And together with your Fiancee, teamwork is always that edge, the hedge to success. Best of luck.
