    The front grill on the 1971 'Cuda was one of the most unique styling designs ever.

    There are some good replicas but the Mr. Norm's grill does not cut it, in my opinion, as a former 'Cuda owner. Compare it to a real 'Cuda grill.

    My thoughts precisely.

    There was someone on this board that had the best copy i had ever seen, but can't find him now

    TRhosew looked especially good on a bright yellow and white car with some silver-paint grille portions, I think, like Nash Bridges.

    After owning a 70 440-6 Cuda, 4 speed car. I could not put a Cuda grill on my Challenger, there is something blingy about it.

    Same here.

    A few unique SHOW car's are one thing,
    but when you can order the sh!t off Amazon it looses the term CUSTOM

    While the ‘Cuda accessories look good, it’s not a ‘Cuda, but I understand why some would want to make those changes. However, it’s still a Challenger.
