After the Woodward Dream Cruise, I was able to see a collection of cars, trucks and even a motorcycle or two.

In the owner's driveway was a C3 Corvette and a 1967 Dodge Coronet R/T convertible that he was working on. Behind the storage building I saw a couple of trucks that I couldn't make out, but they looked neglected. Also back in there was a 1962 Dodge Dart 4-door he was modifying into a 2-door.

What was hiding in the garage excited me most of all. The first thing I tripped over is an extremely rare 4-cylinder Henderson Motorcycle, which was built for only a few years before the Depression. Next to the Henderson was a 1970 Barracuda Convertible that originally came with a 318. Unfortunately it needed a bunch of metal work. Sitting next to that was a 1968 Camaro Convertible.

But the car that made my jaw drop was the 1971 Plymouth 'Cuda convertible in the corner of the garage. In Sassy Grass Green and a 340 car, it was one of my all-time favorites. Then next to it was 1967 Camaro RS 327 that was fully optioned. It even had power windows! If that wasn't enough, there was also another 340 1970 'Cuda that graced the opposite wall.

These cars might look like they're sitting, but the owner is constantly working on one or another. Right now, it is the 1967 Coronet R/T Convertible, but tomorrow, who knows! Thanks to my friends in cool places that help me meet such amazing people. If you know of anything, let me know, I'm on all of the social media.
