Plymouth Road Runner Convertible, I didn't get the year. The article lists the Road Runner as a muscle car.

DSC_02481973 Plymouth Barracuda. I have forgotten the exact name of the color of this one, but it seems like it was candy wineberry red, something like that anyway. It sure looks good.

The front end. By the way, the Plymouth Sport Fury is listed in the Wikipedia muscle car article as a muscle car with this particular engine.

The shiny black paint reflects the pavement very well.

See the push buttons on the dash? It's a push button automatic transmission. In the Wikipedia muscle car article, several years of the Belvedere 426S are listed as muscle cars but not the 1963.

This is just something I would love to see in person. I really like the Barracuda!

I remember those wings on the Plymouths. They looked cool then. Now? Not so much.

If I didn't know better, I would think you are a gearhead, Lynette.
