Further Description/Back Story I had previously built and sold a Slash-based drag car and moved on to another project, but when I saw that Pro-Line brought out this 1972 Barracuda body, I knew I had to build another one! Being a Mopar guy, I really wanted to do an "In Violet" paint job, and it all came together when I found the white HEMI billboards and the "Purple-licious" paint. This one is a keeper; in fact, another 'Cuda build is on deck.
