just for fun
This is me waving from the interior of my parents' 1968 Plymouth Barracuda, ca. 1974 (it was part of an interstate trip/vacation).

I don't know what that color is called officially, but my mom always called it 'Army Green'. Smile

They must have had the largest rear windows of any car... That's a lot of glass.

Note the fashionable window-mount cup holder -- my dad would probably still be using those today if they hadn't started making cup holders part of the standard convenience package in modern vehicles.

AWESOME pic Doug! The 64-66's was the largest piece of glass ever in a production car, don't know if that changed at all, but yeah....lots of glass and lots of heat being let in!

Thanks for sharing!

Love pics like that. I wonder about the fate of cars in those photos. Hopefully that one's still around.

Yeah, I like to think that it's still around, somewhere... Maybe with an owner that's shown it some love over the years.

If I can find the pics of the canary yellow Charger that we had after this one got sold, I'll post those up, too.
