Possible Cuda Return

Apparently Chrysler is considering bringing back the Barracuda, but as a Chrysler. I say put a Plymouth badge on it and great, I've always liked Cuda's better than Challengers.

DaimlerChrysler AG Centric News Blog: 'Update 2' - Looking into the Dodge Challenger Crystal Ball

Aparrently these pictures came from this site, but I don't think it works anymore.

Re: Possible Cuda Return

Those pictures actually came from their owners site creating the lie (hint hint) Doug Schramm - Creating the Lie Studio - Automotive Art and Design and are just a single mans 3D models of what he would like a new Cuda to look like. He does some awesome work, check out the "Auto Design" page of his

I HIGHLY doubt DC will be bringing back any sort of Cuda.

What would you call it, the Dodge 'Cuda? Chrysler 'Cuda?

Also, the site you posted does work, if you remove the * from your url Chrysler Cuda Concept Car

There was a Barracuda and there was a Cuda. The Cuda was to the Barracuda like the Cobra, Boss, Mach 1 are to Mustangs, the performance version.

Re: Possible Cuda Return

Can anyone guess the base for the 3d model he used???? That's right, look close and he just took a challenger concept and modified it. I'm surprised no one noticed it. So techincally he didn't even design, just ripped off the body lines and everything from another car and threw different headlights and hood scoops.

New challenger:


This guy's "Cuda"


Almost everything is the same. How original......

Thats the whole point of what he did. Read his site description:
Quote:


Creating the Lie Studio... A lot of people ask me "What does creating the lie mean anyway." Well the short of it is that if you take a photograph of something then you say change a small part of it via digital manipulation, for example changing a persons eye color and so on then you have basically altered or changed or in fact lied about the reality of the subject.

I started my digital life as a photo manipulator and the name seemed ideal. Granted it wasn't a Politically Correct name..I guess if I was going to go that route it would be "Fabricating an Untruth" but that's not me. I call 'em like I see 'em. So all the cars you see on this site in the auto section are in fact lies of the original photo. Now some have been built other are just flights of fancy but the end result is that hopefully they got a reaction out of you and hopefully that reaction is a positive one.

Thank you
-Doug
I'd still say it looks pretty good, and has fooled quite a bit of people. I'd also call someone stupid if they wanted to build an entire car and make it look real in photoshop, all of them come from other base vehicles.

Yup, he's the ******...

I would like it if they made a car like that, but the crazy mopar guys (we all know how they are) would not want any Cuda unless it was a Plymouth.

I understand completely. If GM brought back the 442 and it was a Buick/Chevy/Pontiac, I would have a fit.

Re: Possible Cuda Return

why not just call it what it is though? do they really need to put the manufacturer before the name?

like, just call it the Cuda, not the Dodge Cuda, Chrysler Cuda, etc. It can be sold at dodge/chrysler lots and made by whatever plant makes them, only thing in the designation it does not state which company it belongs to. I mean, its not like that matters, the money all goes to the same place be it Dodge/Chrysler or GMC/Chevy/Buick/Olds/Pontiac Etc.

though itd never happen.

Re: Possible Cuda Return

That couldn't happen. There are separations between each Manufacturer even though they are within a similar Motor Company.

Re: Possible Cuda Return

Look, just badge the thing Plymouth and it will probably sell a lot better than the Challenger. Dodge owned Plymouth, they can probably call it that if they want to. Its a brilliant idea.
