Farthest Away Entry - Paul Theriault from Simcoe

My 1973 Plymouth Barracuda Car was originally sold in Norfolk County. I am the third owner, car has under 50,000 miles. I have owned it for three years bought as driver and I had it restored. (No photo submitted)

Best Makeout Spot Photo - Dave Middleton

The committee may be drawn to the local beach, or the size of the seats; but this photo was voted unanamously as the best "makeout spot" photo and car!

I (David Middleton) am the third owner of the car. I purchased it from Murray Morrison in Owen Sound. When I purchased it I promised him I would return it to its original glory. it was chocolate brown. It had actually been painted with four layers of Tremclad. Shawn Cook of Burgoyne did a complete body and paint job returning it to its original colour. Bill Clark of Mount Forest freshened the engine and added some chrome and dual exhaust.
