      Hahaha. Wow.
      Yet another reason for me to not watch those programs. The "manufactured drama" turned me off of those shows years ago. I like to learn things and be entertained not frustrated.

        I really didn't like the car when they got done with it. The wheels and tires were hideous, even if they did have dog dish hub caps on them......................MO

            The vehicles they build are not to my liking, but I can appreciate the fabrication work that they do. They build their own chassis from scratch on a frame table, and figure out the necessary geometry and suspension travel to achieve their rediculous goals. They are not really into Mopars, which is probably a good thing for us Mopar guys and gals. There are plenty of Furds and Chevies for them to build to their styling.

              Guess nobody here has ever ran into tb’s that wouldn’t come out? I call BS! I’ve had a few that wouldn’t come out and used a cut off wheel, problem solved.

              Now as to the rest of that build, I liked it, although I would’ve polished all the trim and the wheels, not my cup of tea, but appreciate the effort to make it look old school.

              I had a tortion bar that I couldn't get out of a 70 Charger parts car. I pulled the K frame out,and tried to beat it out with a ten pound sledge hammer, it would not budge. The car went to the junkyard with it still in place.
