Question this is my 1968 barracuda 318 factory air, 4speed, should I restore it to a classic (which I am not thrilled about) or hot-rod it out? Which would be worth more? The reason I ask, I probably already know the answer, Is that I have a 63 Fairlane hot-rodded out and having trouble recouping my investment. Some of have probably seen were I posted about not liking the 4speed. I have a 5speed in the Fairlane and would rather cruise and relax not worrying about shifting and all. So if I were to hot-rod it, I would ditch the 318, and go with a 360 or new hemi 345-390hp. pull the 4sp. and go with a strong automatic, and covert to disc brakes, white interior, viper red paint, and the biggest tires I can fit without tubing.
I know a few of you will not like this, but anything would be better than puke green. Imagine the the last photo of the black barracuda in viper red with white interior.

okay, all opinions will be carefully considered..thanks in advance!!!!
