In the December '02 issue, we introduced you to a '67 Barracuda constructed by Muscle Car Restorations of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. In that first installment, we displayed the car that we began with-a '67 convertible that would be considered a solid driver.

This series outlines what is necessary to build a car that wins show trophies and, at the same time, is routinely driven and can perform at the drags well beyond expectations.

Of all three facets-driving, showing, and performing-driving gets top billing with this Barracuda. Our goal is to present you with a challenge: Prepare your Mopar for the '03 installment of the Hot Rod Power Tour. Details of the event are forthcoming, but imagine with us, if you will, Mopars showing up in force and invading the Hot Rod Power Tour.

To simply be on the Power Tour is one thing, but to have so many Mopars that the Hot Rod staff calls it an invasion is our goal. Yes, for one bright and shining week in late May, the Mopars will rule.

In this second installment, we'll show you how to build a car that is enjoyable to drive and stops reliably, thanks to a supple suspension, which was reconstructed using all new components from Performance Suspension Technology. Additionally, the original 10-inch drum brakes were discarded in favor of a reliable combination from Stainless Steel Brakes.

Follow along as we outline these details and further introduce the Invasion of the '67 Barracuda.
