19Plymouth Barracuda still looks great at 50

April 17, 2014 is the fiftieth anniversary of the Ford Mustang. This isn't just the year of Ford's legendary pony car, though. It also marks the fiftieth anniversary of the debut of Chrysler's entry into the pony car wars - the Plymouth Barracuda.

13Petrolicous torques about 1967 Plymouth Barracuda Formula S

There are classic muscle cars like the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro, and then there are rare classic muscle cars – vehicles like this 1967 Plymouth Barracuda. Walk down Metro Detroit's Woodward Avenue on the third Saturday of August, and even in that sea of Americana that is the Woodward Dream Cruise, you'd be hard pressed to find many Cudas. What ones you did come across would likely be the larger third-generation cars.

20Hurst Hemi Under Glass drag racers to be auctioned

Remember those mid-engine Plymouth Barracuda coupes that popped wheelies high enough to warrant under-car advertisements? Well, owner Bill Sefton is now selling them as a four-car collection with Mecum Auctions. The high-riding 'Cudas - officially the Hurst Hemi Under Glass (HUG) cars - were built by Hurst for the Factory Experimental (A/FX) class to advertise the company's aftermarket shifters and wheels. The HUGs were rear-heavy, enough so that they sprinted down the drag strip in a very uncon

115Further speculation about radical new SRT Barracuda

Almost as soon as Chrysler showed us the new Dodge Challenger, Mopar fans began wondering when the Pentastar brand would put together a Barracuda. Some financially sound fans even created their own retro 'Cudas, some to much praise. But if Car and Driver is to be believed, those visions of a modern, rejuvenated 'Cuda are not nearly modern enough.

61Dodge may add 'Barracuda' model to Challenger lineup

The upcoming re-launch of the SRT Viper (formerly a Dodge Viper, of course) may be dominating the fast-Mopar coverage to date, but that super-coupe may turn out to represent just the tip of the iceberg. Automotive News is reporting that multiple Dodge performance products are likely to hit American streets over the next three years.

14Watch Jack White bend a Hemi Cuda to his will in "Freedom at 21" trailer

There are certain things in this world we will love until the day they plant us in the cold, hard clay. B-Movies, cold beer and a good chase scene all make the cut, as does spine-shivering rock and roll. Jack White has managed to combine at least three of those four in the latest trailer for his "Freedom at 21." The clip looks as if it were lifted straight from a '70s grindhouse flick, complete with desolate western back drop, gritty filters and an excellent hero car.

113Chrysler to replace Dodge Challenger with Barracuda?

Motor Trend reports that Chrysler may forsake the Dodge Challenger for a resurrected Barracuda. The magazine cites two unnamed sources as saying the nameplate will surface in time to celebrate the vehicle's 50th anniversary in 2014. If true, the Barracuda will ride on a new smaller and lighter platform that's more fit to compete with the likes of the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro. The vehicle's bones will likely be shared with Alfa Romeo, which means a turbo four-cylinder may show up behind
