As I was uploading the photos from this past Saturday’s show at Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, I discovered I hadn’t posted all the cars from Smoke Meat Pete’s. Thought you might like a look at this second generation 1969 ‘Cuda notchback coupe. That would be the first year they wedged the 440ci (the Super Commando) V8 under the hood of the Plymouth pony car. Some pony!

According to Wikipedia, Plymouth executives wanted to call the Barracuda the Panda. Gah. Fortunately, the designers protested.
