Best Muscle Cars
by Dave Ashton
After taking a leisurely trip down to the local cinema complex to see the new Black Panther movie ‘Wakanda Forever,’ my spider tingle went off immediately when a bright red muscle car hit the screen. Muscle cars starring in movies are nothing new, but it’s still heartwarming to see these classic vehicles taking center stage.
This is not going to be a movie review, as it’s up to you to watch the movie and judge for yourself its merits. In my case, it was going to be interesting to see how they dealt with the sad passing of Chadwick Boseman who played Black Panther and how they continued the storyline. Suffice it to say the movie was a fitting tribute to Boseman, and his memory was interwoven into the storyline.
The Movie Car
One of the other stars of the movie was the presence of a deep-red Plymouth Barracuda. Owned and driven in the movie by Leticia Wright who played ‘Shuri,’ the car in question was to our bad eyesight a 1972 Plymouth Cuda 440 Six-Pack. From the screenshots, the nearest we could tell it was a 1972 model was from the single headlights and grille design. However, with all movie vehicles, they have to use a bunch of them for filming, which means they could start off as other year models and be adapted to look the same as the rest. Therefore, the message is more about the presence of the car, rather than the fine details.
In any case, out of all the vehicles which could have been possibly used for filming, a Plymouth Cuda was used. I guess they still don’t make ’em like they used to.
