Here is are a few pictures my 1982.  It is in pretty good shape if I say so myself.  I am the 3rd owner, has 75,500 original miles on it, never wrecked, painted once, and all numbers match.  The car is a Michigan car, sold at a Chevy dealer in Warren, Mi.  It is a stock 350/5.7L, all original except the K&N filters, Firestone 255/60/15 Firehawks, and stock exhaust.  I had the front suspension rebuilt and a few things done to the rear suspension, stock parts only.  The carpet was new in 2005, all the gauges work, crossfire ignition is fine at the moment.  It stays covered in my garage. The previous owner had it for 8 years and it was only driven 2500 miles in that time frame.  It is exceptionally clean for a 'northern' car with no rust or corrosion, frame was cleaned and painted so that you can eat off it.  There are no leaks.  I did replace the master cylinder, new brake system front to rear, new front coil springs, and shocks.

I really like the picture of your 'Cuda.  I never had one but I had a real good friend who had two '70 models, one that was an army green landau top with a 340 and the other was the purple monster with a 440/auto.  The 340 was a 4 speed with the 'pistol grip' shifter. very nice cars.  I always loved the 'Cuda.
 
Thanks Binnie.
