The 65 Barracuda That Really Didn’t Quite Work Out

The BEGINNING This is the sad story of a young man and a car, the car being the ’65 Barracuda pictured above. The photo was taken after the car had been disposed of- traded in on a 1966 Mustang GT- and was spotted parked by the roadside. Anyway, in the beginning, the young man (me), was driving a 1960 Ford Starliner with a 292 V-8 and a 3-speed Cruise-o-Matic automatic transmission.

Look at the above photo. See that black car? That, my friend, is a genuine 1966 Mustang GT coupe. It is parked in the dirt lot where the Speed Emporium cars were both worked on and displayed. There was another pretty much identical Mustang Gt at the Emporium. That one belonged to Henry, our founder and leader, and it had the same color and same options, except for the red lined tires.
