I'd certainly be interested in an XNR. Not sure on the others suggested, but I'd think there'd be more than enough demand.

Found this on Ebay completed lsitings ( not mine btw)

It might be close, but I don't think it's the same as the sonic cuda nose . but I think it could be modified without to much trouble

Has anyone ever cast any of these Dodge, and Plymouth concept cars?

I thought that I read somewhere that the Sonic Cuda was a privately owned, custom built show car, not a Chrysler concept. The huge aftermarket blower sticking through the hood would also support that theory. Either way, I like it! I wonder what ever happened to this machine......

Although I am not 100% sure. I believe it was in fact Mopar designed / Chuck Miller built ( I think it was a design exercise and was supposed to travel around with the RTS cars ) , then went to private ownership later on ( early 70's)

And the last I heard the car still exists and is in Michigan

PS, there also was the RTS Cuda and is / was a different car

Neat custom...speaking of custom Mopies, I've always wanted to build an MPC '72 Road Runner w/ the custom parts. My '72 is build stock and was missing the custom parts when I bought it.

Cool, thanks for the responses guys. I read somewhere that, while this isn't the same Cuda as the one in the RTS display, it was built by the same person, in almost the same manner. I believe that the RTS Cuda had wheelie bars sticking through the exhaust cutouts, among other things.

This is the only pic I can find of the RTS Cuda.
I saw an article around 1990/91 that had a picture of this Cuda on display with the other RTS showcars.

Thanks Bill.
The bottom pic is the only other pic I've seen of this car. Seems like it's pretty hard to find info on it.

note it said the zoomies and blower were cosmetic, i guess that means there is a carb inside the blower body ala ed big daddy roth. and of course the zoomies are cosmetic or there would be flames coming out of those puppies in the nighttime photography.
