The front and sides were attractive enough (and cribbed from another Plymouth model, the Valiant), but it was around the rear that this car really stood out. The Plymouth Barracuda sported one of the most dramatic rear window designs I've ever seen. A full glass clamshell was fitted over the rear of the car, continuing the arc of the roofline down into the trunk. The curve at either side of the window was equally impressive, making this piece a glass both beautiful and a technical feat for the era. Apparently it was the largest rear glass ever used in a production car at the time, and I doubt many have bested it since.
A swim later in the day at Sandbanks Provincial Park on Lake Ontario didn't reveal any other big scary fish, thankfully. I also didn't see any other Barracudas while touring the island, so it would seem this was a very rare sighting. Lets just say I've been bitten by this automotive wonder.
