I was down the street taking pictures of a horrible brown Plymouth Scamp when my friend Shahin called me over to see something special.  It was an amazing Plymouth Barracuda pulling out of a driveway down the street.  The owner, Davey Loprinzi had some idle issues and we stopped to chat while he worked them out.  

It was only then that we noticed the amazing 1968 Pontiac GTO stored on a lift above the ‘Cuda.  I’ve never seen a blower motor so big.  This one has 650 HP on tap and Davey reassured us he and his uncle spent a great deal of time to make it both comfortable to drive and race.  He started it up for us and it sounded incredible.  

As for the ‘Cuda it is freshly restored with a transplanted hemi, putting out 576 HP.  The whole thing was perfect down to the sweet Rapid Transit sticker on the windshield. 

Davey stresses that this work couldn’t have been done without his Uncle Larry, becasue “Two peoples money goes a lot further than one!”  Rarely have I seen money better spent.

Seen in SE Portland
