    Thumbs up Another Good WRX/STi Owner!

    Hmmmm, <rear view mirror check> Civic hatch, 2 Mini vans, a fancy looking Benz, Ford Explorer, and lookie lookie, A prettie blue STi with gold rims... cute! <eyes back on the road> So I skirt off down Stockton road heading back to the house, I didn't think the STi would bite (or any of the other vehicals for that matter), but he pulls up behind me and starts revving, I refuse to play into the antics, I had the drags on the car, and with my evil primer paint job that adds 45hp , this had to be a joke. I looked back and noticed he was tryin' to hear what the 'maro sounded like (See I knew you guys wern't a holes, always respects the classics) So I give him a show, my front end rises in the air and shakes after ever round, the guy in the mini van next to me thinks we are gunna run so he slightly pulls over to allow the STi to pull up. He yells at the window "Teach the lil turbo punk a lesson!" I reply "Nah, he's a smart one, he knows beauty when he sees it, he just wanted to see what I got." So everyone starts honking (they do this down here to acknoledge/instigate a race) So the STi guy pulls up and says "Pray for me?!" and I reply "Your good for it man, lets give em a show!" So the minivan guy takes over (We are STILL holding up the light hahahaha) and he does the 3 honks, I jump on it and catch trackion and beat him off the line it was over before it began... So I play a game of cat and mouse... I'd speed off, let him catch up then break off again shaking my finger in the air "NoNoNo..." We stop then wait for the spectators to catch up (This is common, if you have a crowd acknoledge a race you wait for them) So they come up and give us our ovation (2 normal honks and a final long third) The STi pulls to the side of me, gives me my props, then says he is out of town and never seen a scene like this. We traded numbers in case he was in town at the local track and we sped off. This is the 5th time I have ran into such a cool WRX/STi owner, and I have yet to meet a bad one. Kudos to you all, Now to find someone who can beat me

    Hey C9, do you know anything about Cudas? I have uncles with a pair of them, one red with black and the other black with red. One of those uncles recently passed away and I don't my aunt knows what to do with his collection. Most of his other cars are old mobster type cars (some complete with bullet holes). What do you think a mint 70 Cuda is worth, and what kind of potential do they have. I know chevy prettymuch rules the hotrod dragracing world... I'm getting hooked on american muscle cars and have been going to the track way to much, I think my dad and I just might bite. Any thoughts are appreciated.

    As for what a 70 Cuda is worth, it varies WILDLY on the options; anywhere from well under $10k for a small black automatic, to pushing 6 figures a Hemi car. And, like any older car, it's worth whatever you can convince somebody to pay for it. Very nice car, and getting vary scarce now- Chrysler didnt use the best of materials on them in the first place, and most of them are rusted beyond hope. A clean one is certainly worth holding onto. Potential? As fast as you want to spend, but be careful about what is is before you tear into it and devalue the car if it is mint. If it's a 318, 340 or even a 383 car, it's not that big a deal (although the 383 is starting to get a bit valuable) but if it's a 440 or a 6 pack car, it's already quite valuable and youll lose a lot of value by modding it. Good luck!

    Almost positive both the Cudas have a 427 Hemi, they are both mint condition and have been in storage and driven only on sundays for many years. I guess it would be a bit of a shame to turn a show car into a drag car, but I don't see any reason it can't be both... Unless the car is worth a lot more than I realize.

    C9A1L1L,
    I enjoy reading your stories, with one exception. Could you run spell checker on your posts before hitting the submit button?

    "prettie" "vehicals" "acknoledge" "trackion"

    These are common words that most school children can spell with ease. I'm almost embarrassed that an adult would post these gross misspellings on a public forum when all you have to do is type the story in Word and then cut and paste it into the browser window.

    Good story but it's kinda rude and stupid to tell someone to teach the "turbo punk." Turbo is our go-fast juice, except you don't have a bottle to pay to refill...

    If that is true, both those cars are worth a mint. From my understanding there were only 600 and change hemi-cudas built in 1970. With only about 16 conv. models included. The convertibles are now viewed as basically priceless. Some auctions have brought in 6 figures for a hardtop.

    Yeah, whenever I'm stopped and sitting at a green light with people behind me, I figure they are honking with enthusiasm at my bad-ass car; rather than honking out of anger & frustration for me blocking traffic. And then when they drive by later and honk, it's never accompanied by a rude hand gesture, but because they think I'm cool. Glad to know it's the same way out in Cali! LMFAO

    Anyway, nice take down of the Sti.

    Instead, in IL, it's because they're psychos that want to kill you.

    Comedy!
    That's what I was thinking. I would be pissed if some morons were holding up traffic at alight so they could race.
    Even if it was an STi.
