1970 Plymouth 'Cuda Restoration - Reliving the Sublime

It's always tough to let go of a car you love, but sometimes these decisions become necessary. When we spoke to John Schwarz, of Huntington Beach, California, he told us about the 1970 Barracuda he owned in high school. When he graduated, John didn't want to sell the car, but he also wanted to go to college and improve his job prospects, so he made the tough decision to let it go and put the cash towards his education.

Ever since he sold his first Barracuda, John wanted to find another. In the summer of 2016, his hard work finally paid off, and he was able to purchase the 1970 Plymouth 'Cuda seen here from a friend. Thanks to his patience, he ended up with a car that's even nicer than the one he had back in high school.

1966 Mustang Fastback - Restored Barn Find

It never fails to amaze us when we see a gorgeous classic car, and learn that just a few short years ago, it was a basket case peppered with dents, scratches, and cobwebs. The transformation from a neglected lawn ornament to a gleaming and purring restored ride is truly astonishing each and every time.

Tony Munoz, of Pomona, California, purchased this 1966 Mustang Fastback about 9 years ago. He bought it from a childhood neighbor — after seeing it every day as a kid, this iconic pony car made an indelible impression. Many years later, he was finally able to convince its original owner to part ways with the car.

It’s every automotive enthusiast’s dream to come upon a barn find. Back in the day, someone would literally find untouched classics in barns that had been forgotten by time for decades. Finding cars in an actual barn is rare these days—they’re more like “garage finds”, but everything else is still the same. So, imagine the excitement William Avila felt when he opened up a garage one day to reveal not one, but two 1987 Buick Grand Nationals—both with under 1000 miles, sequentially numbered. They’re essentially twins! However, they weren’t perfectly preserved, as William explains to GM EFI Magazine:

67 Firebird - The Start of a Project

Every classic car restoration project has a starting point. Sometimes it's a rusty basket case sitting on cinder blocks in a backyard, other times it's an excellent-condition survivor that just needs a few replacement parts. More often than not, projects start somewhere in between these extremes, with a running and driving car or truck that's a little rough around the edges.
