UPDATE 8/21/2012
Finally brickbuilt enough of it to take pictures, it just needs some refinement on the inside, otherwise it's done. Also removed all the glass and tried this new way with the levers. I like it both ways but with the levers the windshield now starts properly about a stud back from before.

Lots more pictures:

Awesome 'cuda! The details are great and I'm glad you went with Plum Crazy and not Hemi Orange or Sublime.

That Barracuda is AWESOME (I wish I had one in RL, but oh, well)!  I haven't seen too many 8-wide cars, but this does confirm my suspicion that you'd most likely have to go 8-wide for a fully enclosed side-by-side seating automobile.

Yesssss all hail 8-wide :D

I improved the rear, now it's a lot nicer I think. (redesigned the rear window, flipped the big purple tile, changed trans red tiles to trans red grills)

Also added the LDD file to the first post. It still could maybe use some refining on the inside, but I think it's solid as is.

I've ordered some pieces for this car, the Mad Max car, my Space Police 3 robot, and a bunch of parts for MOC hammers/maces, only missing a few minor parts for the cars now. The only thing that kinda bugs me is I need the red mudguards for the 'Cuda but black ones look nice in the meantime.
