Yep, whatever it takes to get the big bucks on the auction block. This pic , to me, gives this car more cred, pulling the wheels nicely like that. Kool.

This is what I know of the car so far.Lou Vignona said he purchased it from some guy in Mt.Kisco(Cisco??) N.Y in the early 80's.It was in an underground parking lot of some apartment complex.The guy told Lou that it was Charlie Castaldo's Auto. car. I have since found out that it is not Castaldo's car thru talking to one of Charlie's crew members at the time by the name of Charlie Licata.When Lou purhased the car,he had it painted white.This is how Tim Henessey purchased it in 1985.
I have heard some storys about an original Hemi Dart in the N.Y. area that was known as the "two scoop Lido" car.I understand that this Lido guy installed some aftermarket scoop on top of the original scoop.Thus the name.I have spoke with Tim Henessey about this & he did say the original scoop was really messed up so he had to replace it when he restored the car.
If anyone can help me out on this,I sure would appreciate it as I have been searching for info. now for over 3 years,maybe 4.Any little detail may help no matter how small it may be.
Thankyou; Daryl

Here is a good start.

I've been trying to get the Barracuda guys stirred up, but I guess they are all getting ready to go the Gators and don't have time for keyboard racing! Anyway, why do the Darts get all the love, the 'Cuda is a much prettier car!

The entire "Nostalgia" forum began as a result of Daryl's search for the history of his LO23 Dart.

If you go back through this topic from the beginning there is a lot of information on the BO29 Barracuda before it was split off into its own topic.

Hmmmmm. ...... "Prettier" is not really a term I have ever heard associated with these things , but hey if that rocks your boat who am I to sink it for you.
I personally prefer a Darts unasuming, bare bone no frills, no nonsense boxy body lines.
They dont need to be pretty to be bad....lol

Nice try tho Terry!!!!
