Summary:

In 2006 Dave Freeman approached me with his 1970 Cuda named “the Cudanator” ...Not an easy task after he was already $175k into the car... The idea was to incorporate AAR styling, Grigio eggshell matte paint, flush fit glass (which meant fabricating & welding up all the window openings ...that was 4 years ago...Erik Davis from California owns the car today and the AAR HEMI is now featured in “Fast Furious 6” as Vin Diesels “drive into the sunset vehicle” and a main feature vehicle in Fast Furious 7.
