Purple HazeBarry Barker - Cypress, Texas1971 Challenger convertible
Barry definitely has one gorgeous '71 Challenger convertible. He brought out his showroom-condition ride to show that Mopars were made to race. before Barry bought the Challenger, he wanted an E-Body, while his wife wanted a Corvette. When Barry's wife left for a trip, her words of "don't buy a car while I'm gone" must have gotten lost in translation, because that's when Barry found and acquired the '71. The car underwent the required rebuild, and in Barry's words, "Cars are meant for the drag strip," so he started driving and racing it from time to time. Barry tells us his car ran its fastest pass down the quarter-mile this weekend.
