Ok, NOT a Plymouth, but you can’t argue that this wasn’t the first Barracuda. I actually just found this photo online when I was looking up it’s future muscle car offspring. Our neighbor had a gold Plymouth Barracuda. I’ve been going through photos lately, and I saw it in the background of  an old pic of my sister and I and I had to look it up since it’s car I know nothing about. I do remember that I liked it because it had a fish emblem on the back and my little sister used to call it a Back-a-Ruda. She also used to call MIckey Mouse, Knock-a-Moose…but I digress….Don’t know if I’m more jealous of this car or that little guy’s lederhosen…Wish I could find more info about this beautiful land fish, but there was only a photo….

    I know!! I was able to find a little more info about it the other night…Apparently, this picture was taken in Lithuania in the 1920s…Wow, please tell me my relatives made this…it’s altogether possible….

    I love this! This would make a lot of people jealous on the Cape considering I live in a “fishing community”….

    I wonder what the drag coefficient was on that.

    Do you know, was it a delivery vehicle?

    I love cars with fins.

    This would be cool as a SCALE model.

    This gills me.
