Description: t-shirt logo for my husbands fetish. Custom font to give a retro 1970ish feel, as his baby is a 1970 black Cuda.

FANTASTICO, FAVED!! takes me back to the 70's yeah baby, GROOVY.

jenlogo said on Aug. 22 '08

Thanks again Mike!

logomotive said on Aug. 22 '08

Welcome Jen, I can see this made into a sticker also. Would love to see it in those physcodelic (sp?) colors of the 70's. This logo is so great because it captures the ERA and style while the letters have a "bite" to it conveying the CUDA. The older crowd will appreciate this logo.

firebrand said on Aug. 22 '08

GROOVY indeed!
Yeah, I remember the Barracuda (in picture books). Looks like a Dodge Charger? You just don't make 'em like you used to.

gthobbs said on Aug. 22 '08

ahhhhhhh... I'd kill for a Plumb Crazy 'cuda convertible. Love it.

jenlogo said on Aug. 22 '08

@Mike- Yes, I agree, adding some color could be nice, maybe a cuda purple or orange would work also...., certainly something to consider. I'm glad my attempt
at capturing the style worked out! Your comments much appreciated Mike!

@firebrand- thanks for your comment! Not quite like a Charger but I would say similar,although my husband would tell you differently. /Users/jenniferheisch/Desktop/cudapict.pct

@gthobbs- Thanks! Yes, the convertibles are hard to come by!

gthobbs said on Aug. 23 '08

@ firebrand: Very different vehicle from the Charger. However it was sibling to the Dodge Challenger (which has just made it's come back). 'Cude was simply the Plymouth version.

gthobbs said on Aug. 23 '08

And before Jenlogo's husband corrects me...I know...I know...the Cuda was around as it's own creation long before the Challenger (love those mid/late 60s fastbacks). But once the 1970 Challenger was introduced the Cuda was based on that platform. (I was a Mopar head as a kid). I'll shut up now.

jenlogo said on Aug. 24 '08

Glen, are you and my hubby related? lol! Thanks for clearing that up in "Mopar lingo"
as my Cuda picture I tried to attach didn't seem to work (not sure how to do that)
Cheers fellow Moparfester!

bartodell said on Feb. 23 '09

Makes me want to finish the hunk of junk in my garage for sure. I want a T-Shirt!!!!

sdijock said on Feb. 24 '09

Very nice job on the logo - great retro feel.

There was an episode of "RIDES" where Chip Foose took an old beat up Barracuda from the actor Joe Rogan and completely refurbished it - ever since then I've wanted one. Although, I'd also wouldn't mind getting my hands on either the new Challenger or the new Camaro that's coming out soon.

jenlogo said on Feb. 24 '09

Thanks very much Sean, Bart and Steve!- Yup, saw that episode too...love,love..love that show :)

bartodell said on Feb. 24 '09

sdijock... It was RIDES you are correct on that. However it was NOT Chip Foose or Foose Design. It was actually Troy Trepanier of "http://www.radrides.com": Rad Rides by Troy.

The new Camaro is going to be the blowout car of 2010. I am on a waiting list. :)

sdijock said on Feb. 24 '09

My bad - could have sworn it was Foose that re-did the Cuda - sweet ride nonetheless. I always dreamed that if I won the lottery I'd buy a bunch of old muscle cars and dump them off for Foose to fix up for me.

I'm jealous Bart. Swing by Jersey and take me for a cruise when you get it.

fogra said on Feb. 24 '09

'I've just been Overhauled'. :D

THEArtistT said on Feb. 24 '09

I want to marry Chip Foose... oh, wait, already married. My ultimate car is a Mustang Boss. I can only dream! Nice logo Jen.

jenlogo said on Feb. 24 '09

lol,Thanks Trish!, and thanks for the floats everyone :)

Hayes Image said on Feb. 25 '09

Very well done. Nice job on the lettering. Like Mike said, this would also make a great sticker.

Very cool! I have a '69 Cuda that is in the midst of being restored right now... and also draining my bank account!

jenlogo said on Apr. 06 '09

Thanks levelb! yes, they're blood sucking money leaches if you are restoring,but worth it in the long run and soooo much fun!!
