The Plymouth Barracuda has a Windshield on its Floor… You’ll See Why
While a wheelie might look cool, typically, when it comes to racing , it’s anything but efficient. In fact, when the nose of the car goes up, generally, the person behind the wheel might get a little bit anxious and white knuckle the steering wheel at the thought of what might happen when it comes down.
However, when it comes to Bob Riggle and his storied “Hemi Under Glass” Plymouth Barracuda, his thought process works in an entirely different way. Instead of fearing wheelies, Riggle embraces them as he has concocted a build that focuses primarily on lifting front end of his Plymouth into the air.
The storied machine boasts 2500 hp to get the nose soaring and it does so seemingly with ease. The car spends so much time on its rear bumper, in fact, that the list of custom components includes a windshield in the floor so that the driver can see what’s going on in front of him.
In this particular case, we check in with the infamous wheelie monster as it heads to the Goodwood Festival of Speed to show off what is has got. While at the festival, the old school American muscle machine made its way around Goodwood’s race course but in a fashion unlike any car has before.
Let’s just say that during this display, Riggle made good use of the secondary windshield that has been installed in this muscle machine.
With the video below, we get to ride along for the exciting lap that most certainly left fans’ jaws on the floor that day. In this particular exhibition, not only does the Barracuda do one epic wheelie but it pops the front end off of the ground several times as it puts on an absolute display for all of the folks at Goodwood.
Never know what might show up at the festival of speed.
