Post Nash Bridges' Hemi Cuda

I read where the "Hemi Cuda" that Don Johnson drove in the TV series 'Nash Bridges' recently sold for $148,500.00! The car is actually powered by a 440 wedge dressed up to look like a 426 hemi. The new owner is a 'Cuda collector and knows that he paid way more than what the car is actually worth. I guess if ya got it flaunt it! The article said the car was restored to "TV quality", which means it looks good on TV but don't look real close!

I saw it go for $137,500.00 on the televised portion of the Barrett Jackson auction.Yes ,it does have a 440.It's not dressed up in any way to look like a HEMI.It's a so-so car bought by a so- so hole for way too much money.I mean one of Dale's old race cars went for only $74,000 while some bozo pays stupid money for a fake car?

BUT, But it was Don Johnson's car in some TV show and well how many cars did they have for the show anyway, maybe 3 and this is one so its something, Right? Is the car actually a convertible or is that faked too?

No its a real convertable. It was a pretty nice car, I'd take it, not for that kinda money, but I'd take it

The fact that Don Johnson drove it doesn't do anything for me. Cheech Marin and Jodi Lyn O'Keef on the other hand do. If I spent that kind of cash for that car Jodi better come with it!

Tm454, good guess, yes there was 3 others. Arn't the pretty all clean and lined up for the family photo?

I saw that auction too. I'm guessing Johnson's car was worth in the $40,000 range, max. It was just a feeding frenzy to impress a movie star. Nuts!

Speaking of DJ, I heard on the radio this week he got busted at a German border crossing. Didn't catch all the details..

I wonder what happened the Miami Vice cars? There had to be a few of the Daytona Spider replicas built by McBurnie, The Testarossa was real, but didn't they have a stunt car on a Pantera chassis, too?

The first testarossa wasn't real, it was a fab job. Ferrari heard about it and decided to give them a real Ferrari. The Ferarri sold at the auction as well, I think for $82k? Don't remember.

I watched for a while, lost intrest after the nucklehead did the nasty with a blonde stripper when he was in line to marry the daughter. Now thats just pure stupidity. My fav was the episode where Tommy Chong guest stared as a Triad money launderer. Bull, found that 'cuda shot at NashBridges.com. The hemi part came in because in the story of the show before Nashes big bro went off to Vietnam he gave him the keys to watch for him. To make the car even more special they called it a HEMI because only 4 HEMI 'verts were built, so the story says, I'm not sure on that. The 'cuda only has one HEMI badge and its on the side of the hood shnaz.

Check your Facts

Actually some of your facts are wrong, the 1971 'Cuda that Don Johnson drove in the show "Nash Bridges" was not an original at all. Don Johnson saw one in a magazine and wanted it for the show. They later found out the the 1971 'Cuda wasn't an easy car to find seeing as only 13 were made. The people that made the show contacted Plymouth the original makers of the 'Cuda (know today as Chrysler) and they had 4 replica's of the 71 Cuda made, If you were a fan of the show you would also know that they blew one of those four up in one of the episodes in i believe the Sixth season, which was the last season before CBS cancelled the show because if became to expensive to produce.

You may want to recheck your facts again....
Here and here
Where did you see that only 13 Cudas were made in 1971?
I also have a hard time believing that Plymouth, still had the tooling to make a 1971 Cuda convertible(beings they only made 13 to begin with) and actually agreed to reproduce only 4...sounds like they would have some issues with titling and licensing producing a 199x Plymouth Cuda...
If you could produce the source of your facts, I am sure that we would all like to see also.

Later,
WEIMER

i doubt they had original tooling around too, but now they do. you (we) will all be able to buy new metal cuda's and 69 camaro ragtops and a mustang as well soon from aftermarket mfgs as i'm sure we all read a couple of months back in HRM

way to wake the dead, weimer!
