Pam and Bill Fix are the proud owner’s of this beautiful 1970 Plymouth Hemi ‘Cuda, built by Bair Customs and the Big Hemi Garage. This Sherwin Williams Plum Crazy Metallic Purple/ “In Violet” Hemi Cuda is a tribute car to the late Barry Bergquist, Pam’s older firefighter brother. He passed away almost 30 years ago, and Pam and Bill thought it would be great to name the Purple car after him, “BarryCuda” was born. Bill and Barry grew up cruising Van Nuys Blvd., and although they did not know each other back in the 60′s, they had a mutual interest in cars and girls. Little did they know they would have Pam “the sister and the girlfriend” in common.
Here is a picture of Barry in the mid 60′s with his 32 Duce Coupe. His mom said it was OK to buy it because it had a Cadillac motor….Thinking he could not possibly get a speeding ticket with a car like that!
