It should be in the garbage, don't like the Barracuda's, Cuda's yes, Barracuda's no.
But then again we all know you Dodge boy's have bad taste (this should start a good "debate")

And yes, I know a Cuda is still Dodge(Plymoth)

The only difference between a "Cuda" and a "Barracuda" is the first 5 letters of the name, and the Cuda is a Plymouth not a Dodge. The car in question is a second generation Barracuda. The third generation is where the name was shortened to just Cuda. The Challenger was the Dodge version of the Cuda and didn't come out for couple years after the Cuda started it's run. The Challenger was usually a little more "luxurious" than the Cuda and of course cost a little more as well.

Also there's no room in the garbage, it's full of Chevys and Fords.

As for picture, I'm not a specialict, but Barracuda like Barracuda. Maybe, it's a joke?

The original design of the Challenger had a wheelbase 3 inches longer than the Barracudas at 111 inches. This would have made it the same as the Dodge Dart. Remembering that Plymouth had been criticized for using the Valiant platform for the Barracuda in 1964, Dodge designers suggested the Challenger wheelbase be reduced by one inch to 110 inches, just to make it different. Bill Brownlie (Challenger's chief design engineer) liked the idea and the Challenger's wheelbase was changed to 110 inches. So that's how the Challenger's wheelbase wound up 2 inches longer than the Barracuda.

Although they look very much alike there are enough differences between the two models that most of the sheetmetal on the Cuda and Challenger won't interchange.

I don't know much of the specs, but the original Barracudas were darn near neutral steering and could be easily coaxed into a tail-slinging oversteer. All the Cudas I encountered were nose heavy, overpowered and mainly suited to straight line travel.
