"Hi there! This is a numbers matching 1971 'Cuda 340, 4-speed pistol grip car located in Iceland. Yes, we people in Iceland have a lot of American muscle cars here and unfortunately some of them are rotting away, amongst them is this classic 'Cuda. The story is that it was imported in 1976 and was sold to the current owner in 1980. Later that year, the gearbox broke and he parked the car where it has sat ever since. Unfortunately, he doesn't want to sell. Many muscle car fans in Iceland have tried to buy the car without any luck, sadly the owner also has a 1973 Barracuda in the same condition. I have attached some pictures of the car, rotting away. The last picture is from 1979 when it was last on the road."

"The classic 'not for sale, gonna fix-it someday' story, but with a happy ending. Well I managed to save this bird before it was too far gone. the bird had no motor in it and had been set up for a small block chevy. It had been sitting for 15 years when I found it. The owner owned a junkyard and had just been bought out. He managed to save the good stuff. Only for sale because he no longer had a place to let it sit and rot. Come to find out, the owner had a 68 Pontiac 400 with 400 aut transmission to go with the bird. My lucky day! I just bought it!"
"This is my friend Nancy's car, just rolled it out of storage. It's a '59 Jaguar her father gave her as a graduation gift in 1967. It was on the road for a year before being stripped for painting, but it never got finished. The engine is in her basement. The restoration will start soon!"
