5. 1970 Plymouth Barracuda (May)
Photographer – Arun M. Nair[Not a valid template]
“In 1970, Plymouth had finally found a Barracuda that could compete on both a visual and performance level with the segment’s biggest contenders. And I’ve been entrusted to take this meticulously kept future birthday present for a spin. Gulp!”
Our publishing editor’s second retro muscle car of the year proved to be a memorable one. Having got his eye in with a ‘79 Firebird Trans-Am just three months earlier, confidence to push the envelope that little bit more was higher. Not behind the wheel, obviously – he’s too much of a wimp for that – but with the photography. And, as the several drifts he performed on sand demonstrated, owner Nader is a good sport.
