1970 Plymouth AAR 'Cuda by formula-s 1970 Plymouth AAR 'Cuda by formula-s
This is a scan of a 1970 Plymouth AAR 'Cuda that I did back in 1989. I recently found this in a file folder, and thought it was decent enough to post. This was drawn with a Koh-I-Noor Technical Drawing Pencil with .05 HB lead. I had just gotten the pencil, and this was its "test drive"...

GORGEOUS.

Your a damn good artist. This is one bang on rendering of a 70 cuda. Very nice!

Thanks! I don't have too much time for work like this, lately. I have a 1969 'Cuda that I actually drew before the '68, and it is still in the finishing stages. The '68 was done first as a tribute to my best friend's Dad, Ed Rowland, who recently passed away. Thinking about doing a "Haul Of Fame", of all the neat cars (mostly Mopars) that I've owned or that others near me have owned. Thanks for visiting, and for the nice comment! I think my ego likes you! :lol:

The '68 was pretty reasonable time wise, since I had the '69 essentially done. The real time eater was revising the grille and hubcaps of all things. The '68 represents about 50 hours or so in AutoCAD, and another 10 hours in MS-Paint. AutoCAD can do some awesome 3d rendering, but I don't know the procedures well enough at this time, and I needed to get it done pretty quickly as a memorial to my best friend's Dad, Ed Rowland. An additional 18 hours went in to the Barracuda script and "super-pike" logo-fish. That was a lot more difficult than I thought it would be! I really love drawing in AutoCAD, especially the editing capabilities! So many times I would have to re-do this panel and that panel to look proportional to something else, and AutoCAD has all kinds of neat little features that allow a lot of freedoms in editing! I feel safe in saying that I probably only use a tiny fraction of what it is capable of! Some of the initial computer generated graphics in movies had an AutoCAD background! Even the older versions are pretty stout in what they can do! So, for the short version of all this :blahblah: , basically about 78 hours total. Hope I haven't bored you to either tears OR sleep! :lol:

Haha tell your ego theres plenty more where that came from. How long does it take you to draw something like the 68 cuda?

ah, this one is good. the only real error I can find is the tires, wich look a little too fat, specially the rear, but not on purpose, other than that, nice drawing indeed.
aaah I wish I had even a 6 cylinder cuda... I wouldn't mind an AAr... or a damn mopar at all!!
I need to find that damn Coronet...

Thanks! Actually, on the 1970 Challenger T/A models, as well as the '70 'Cuda AAR models, they actually came with E60-15s on the front and G60-15s on the back (from the factory)! They had a funky, yet surprisingly free-flowing exhaust system with "U"-flow mufflers that had "U"-shaped tailpipes that angled out into flared chrome angle-cut side "megaphone"-tips. Power was from a high compression 340 small block v8 with 3 2-barrel carburetors! They handled as good as they accelerated! These, IMHO, comprised THE BEST of the E-bodied 'Cudas! Not that the others were slouches, but that these were the best overall!

You'd probably do best with a small block '69 'Cuda ("A"-body) or a '72 'Cuda ("E"-body). Those were fairly high build years. Arizona is usually a real haven for rust-free (although sunburned) Mopars. May your wishes become reality! :)

i know what the T/A Mopars were and I also like them the most. For me a car needs to handle well not just accelerate.
And it would be cool to live in even the farthest part of the USA to find cars but I live in Mexico and there were NO muscle mopars here (the most we got was the 68-70 Dart GTS with ONLY a 318 ci engine... the SuperBee package for the duster wich was only a 318 from 70 till 74 and then had stupid 360s for the 75-76 when the superbee option moved to the Aspen/Volare... and some coronets and monacos equiped with 318s. The biggest mopar engine here was the 360 and it was even worse than a 318 because the 318s were high output versions making some 270-290 hp. And those were the FASTEST street cars in their time because GM nor Ford actually brought real muscle... Ford only brought their most basic mustangs... so no fastbacks ragtops and obviously no big blocks for us... and there was ABSOLUTELY no GM muscle) but because of the last explained... I need to make do with what I can find here. That's why I want a 70 Coronet. I ike the model and it will accept every engine I want to drop in (of course I won't keep the 318...) but im still looking for one : /

Coupled with the sound of tortured tires rapidly evaporating! Back in the days when cars were BUILT, not 'made'...
