(NARRATOR)>> TODAY ON DETROIT MUSCLE, WE'RE STARTING A NEW PROJECT AND IT'S SOMETHING WE WANTED TO GET OUR HANDS ON FOR A LONG, LONG TIME. IT'S OUR FIRST STEP WITH A PIECE OF MUSCLE CAR ROYALTY. DETROIT MUSCLE STARTS NOW!

(MARC)>> WOO!

(MARC)>> WELL WE MADE IT HERE TO WALKER COUNTY, ALABAMA, AND YOU COULD SAY THAT THIS IS A RURAL AREA.

(TOMMY)>> WE'RE HERE, HOPEFULLY, TO TAKE HOME A NEXT PROJECT FOR US, AND I HAVE TO SAY THIS ONE'S BEEN A LONG TIME COMING.

WE'VE BEEN BUILDING CARS ON THIS SHOW, AND IT'S PREDECESSOR, FOR OVER 10 YEARS NOW, AND YEAR AFTER YEAR ONE OF THE MOST ICONIC CARS EVER MADE HAS ELUDED

US, BUT NO MORE. WE FINALLY TRACKED ONE DOWN THAT WE'RE HAPPY WITH, THAT'S IN GOOD ENOUGH SHAPE, AND THE PRICE IS RIGHT ON IT. YEP, A 1969 DODGE CHARGER!

(GREG)>> THIS IS MY '69 CHARGER I'VE HAD FOR 20 YEARS, AND I'VE BEEN DRIVING IT FOR 20 YEARS, AND RESTORING ON IT FOR 20 YEARS, AND JUST I REALLY LIKE THE CAR.

(MARC)>> WELL THE TRUSTY OLE FENDER TAG IS LONG GONE. SO WE CAN'T REALLY DECODE THIS THING PERFECTLY, BUT ACCORDING TO THE VIN NUMBER THIS CAR ORIGINALLY HAD A 383 WITH A TWO BARREL. NOW ACCORDING TO THE OWNER IT WAS AN AUTOMATIC BUT IT'S BEEN SWITCHED OVER TO A FOUR SPEED, AND UNDER THE HOOD IS A BIG BLOCK. [ engine starting and revving ]

(MARC)>> WOO!

[ horn playing Dixie ]

(MARC)>> WHOEVER PUT THE R/T BADGES ON IT ALSO UPGRADED THE REAR TO THE BEEFIER EIGHT AND THREE QUARTERS VERSION. SO THAT'S NICE, AND THE SHEET METAL ON THIS THING IS AS GOOD AS ANY CAR THAT WE'VE EVER BOUGHT.

(TOMMY)>> THIS IS A PRETTY GOOD INDICATION OF THE ORIGINAL COLOR. IT'S LIKE A BROWNISH GOLD LOOKING COLOR, NOT THAT BLUE.

ALL RIGHT, WE'RE GONNA TAKE THE OLD CAR FOR A TEST SPIN TO SEE WHAT THE FIRST IMPRESSION IS.

NOW YOU CAN DEFINITELY TELL THAT THE CARBURETOR'S KINDA

GUMMED UP, AND IT'S BEEN SITTING FOR A LONG TIME. SO WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO TAKE THAT INTO CONSIDERATION. NOW THE INTERIOR OF THIS OLD CAR, IT'S DEFINITELY, WELL, THE RADIO THING JUST FELL OFF OF IT. LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE DRILLED IT OUT TO MAKE ROOM FOR A, IT DON'T MATTER, BUT ANYHOW WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO REPLACE JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING IN HERE, WHETHER IT'S VINYL OR PLASTIC BECAUSE, MAN THIS THING'S A LONG TIME, WAY OLD KINDA RIDE,

BUT THAT'S OKAY BECAUSE THE BONES AND THE STRUCTURE OF THIS OLD CAR IS HERE WHERE WE NEED THEM.

ANOTHER THING THAT THIS CAR HAS, WHICH IS A VERY RARE

OPTION AND THAT IS THE ACCELERATOR SENSITIVE REARVIEW MIRROR CAUSE WHEN YOU GET AFTER IT, OH YEAH, IT KICKS BACK SO YOU CAN SEE IF THAT POLICE IS CHASING YOU. WOO! NOW I WANTED TO DO A BURNOUT BUT I GOT AFTER IT JUST A LITTLE BIT GETTING INTO SECOND GEAR AND I REALIZED IT'S GOT A BROKE MOTOR MOUNT. Y'ALL CHECK THIS OUT.

FEEL THAT?

HEAR THAT THUMP?

THAT MOTOR'S GOING KABABADOOM! WE DON'T NEED TO CHANCE IT. WE'RE GONNA BREAK SOMETHING.

YOU KNOW HEY, AS LONG AS THE CAR IS SOLID, WE'VE GOT SOMETHING TO WORK WITH.

(GREG)>> YOU COULD SEE MY FACE WAS SAD, COULDN'T YOU CHIEF?

WELL I'VE JUST, I'VE HAD THIS CAR A LONG TIME AND I FELT THAT, YOU KNOW, I JUST WANTED TO MOVE ON.

I FIGURED IT'D BE A GOOD TIME TO GET RID OF IT.

(MARC)>> WELL WE GOT OUR CHARGER BACK IN THE SHOP AND IT'S TIME TO START WORKING ON IT. WE'VE GOT SOME REALLY BIG PLANS.

(TOMMY)>> YEAH, WE'RE GONNA DO SOMETHING A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT WITH THIS CAR THAN LIKE THE OTHER ONES THAT

WE'VE DONE IN THE PAST. NOW NORMALLY WE TEAR THEM ALL THE WAY DOWN AND THEN BUILD THEM ALL THE WAY BACK UP TO THE FINISH LINE, IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN, BUT THIS PARTICULAR CAR HERE, IT'S A RUNNING AND DRIVING VEHICLE, AND WE'RE GONNA TRY TO KEEP IT THAT WAY THROUGH MOST OF THE BUILD.

NOW A FEW OF THE THINGS WE'RE GONNA ADDRESS TODAY IS WHAT'S GONNA BE OUR GOTTA DO LIST CAUSE WE WANT TO GET THIS THING BACK OUT ON THE ROAD AND ENJOY IT FOR A LITTLE BIT.

NOW SINCE IT'S BEEN SITTING FOR A LONG TIME, WELL I'LL BET THE FUEL SYSTEM ON THIS THING HAS PROBABLY GOT SOME GARBAGE IN THE TANK, AND LET'S SAY THAT WHEN WE TOOK IT FOR A

RIDE IT DIDN'T REALLY HAVE NO GRUNT TO AMOUNT TO ANYTHING. SO I'M PRETTY SURE IT'S GONNA NEED A TUNE UP, AND SINCE THIS OLD CAR'S GOT SOME AGE ON IT I BET THOSE BELTS AND HOSES NEED TO BE ADDRESSED AS WELL. THEY'RE PROBABLY DRY ROTTED.

(MARC)>> DON'T FORGET THE BRAKES.

(TOMMY)>> YEAH THAT'S FOR SURE.

NOW WE WANT TO MAKE SURE IF WE THROW DOWN ON THEM BRAKES THAT THE PEDAL DON'T HIT THE FLOOR. WE'RE NOT GONNA SWAP IT OUT AND LIKE DO DISC BRAKE CONVERSION YET, BUT WE'VE GOT TO GET THE THING ON THE ROAD AND HAVE US WHERE WE'RE NOT GONNA GET HURT OR ANYBODY ELSE.

(MARC)>> ALL RIGHT, MOTOR MOUNT?

(TOMMY)>> MOTOR MOUNT, THAT'S TRUE. WE DON'T WANT TO BREAK SOME OF THESE GOOD PARTS OFF IN HERE. WHAT ELSE, THERE'S GOT TO BE SOMETHING ELSE? CHECK THE FLUIDS. KINDA DO A ONCE OVER ALL THE WAY FROM FRONT TO BACK BECAUSE

YOU'RE BUYING A CAR THAT SOMEBODY ELSE HAS WORKED ON. YOU DON'T WANT SOMETHING BAD TO HAPPEN BECAUSE YOU JUST DIDN'T TAKE THE TIME TO LOOK AT THAT.

(MARC)>> I THINK THAT'S IT. THE PROBLEM IS WE WANT TO GET ALL OF THIS STUFF DONE BEFORE THIS BIG MOPAR SHOW THAT'S COMING UP DOWN IN ALABAMA, NEXT WEEK. SO WE'VE GOT A SHORT TIME TO GET A LOT OF STUFF DONE. NOW THE REASON WE WANT TO GO TO THIS SHOW IS BECAUSE, WELL IT'S A BIG MOPAR SHOW, AND WHAT BETTER WAY TO GET SOME IDEAS FOR OUR CHARGER BUILD THAN TO RUB SOME SHOULDERS

WITH SOME MOPAR PEOPLE AND LOOK AT SOME COOL CARS.

(TOMMY)>> NOW THIS IS OUR SHORT TERM GOALS, BUT WE HAVE QUITE A FEW LONG TERM GOALS, IF YOU WILL. NOW OBVIOUSLY THIS OLD DINGY BLUE PAINT ISN'T GONNA WORK, AND WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO ADDRESS THE

EXTERIOR OF THE CAR.

(MARC)>> YEAH, WE JUST DID BLUE ON THE CHEVELLE, AND DID A BLACK AND BLUE CAMARO, A YELLOW CAMARO, RED CHALLENGER, PURPLE CHALLENGER, WHAT'S LEFT?

(TOMMY)>> YOU KNOW IT'S BEEN A REALLY LONG TIME SINCE WE PAINTED ANYTHING ORANGE. [ horn playing Dixie ]

(MARC)>> LET'S JUST GO BLACK.

(TOMMY)>> YEAH, THAT'LL LOOK GOOD.

(MARC)>> IF YOU'RE GONNA DO THAT RED STRIPE YOU KNOW WHAT WOULD LOOK GOOD, SOME RED INTERIOR.

(TOMMY)>> NOW WE'RE GONNA LOSE THOSE FLASHY WHEELS THAT WE HAVE FOR SOMETHING A LITTLE MORE SIMPLE. LET'S SAY SOME PAINTED STEELY'S, BOTTLE CAP HUB CAPS, AND RED LINE TIRES.

(MARC)>> PERFECT, WELL WE'RE DONE.

NO WAIT, ENGINE?

(TOMMY)>> NOW SUPPOSEDLY WE'RE STARTING WITH A 440.

THAT'S WHAT WE WERE TOLD, AND IF EVERYTHING CHECKS OUT WE COULD DO A TOP END KIT AND SLAP ON A SIX PACK.

(MARC)>> EVEN THOUGH THIS CAR COULDN'T ACTUALLY COME WITH A SIX PACK IN '69, IT'D STILL BE COOL.

(TOMMY)>> ABSOLUTELY, NOW AS FOR A TRANSMISSION WE ALREADY HAVE THAT GROOVY FOUR SPEED BUT RUNNING BACK THROUGH IT AND MAKING SURE IT'S UP TO SNUFF WOULD PROBABLY BE A PRETTY GOOD IDEA, AND WE'VE GOT AN EIGHT

AND THREE QUARTER. SO PUTTING IN A POS UNIT, MAYBE UPGRADING TO SOME BIGGER AXLES, THAT SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD IDEA.

(MARC)>> YEP, AND THAT'D BE A GOOD TIME TO DO A DISC BRAKE CONVERSION AS WELL.

(TOMMY)>> YEAH THAT'S FOR SURE, BUT WE'VE GOT A LOT OF WORK TO DO AND YOU KNOW, I GUESS IT'S TIME FOR US TO QUIT SQUAWKING AND GET DIRTY.

(NARRATOR)>> COMING UP, WE WANT TO GET OUR BIG OLE CHARGER READY FOR A ROAD TRIP. SO COME ALONG WHILE WE DO SOME QUICK AND DIRTY

REPAIRS TO GET HER READY.

(TOMMY)>> ALL RIGHT GUYS, THE FIRST THING WE'RE GONNA DO TODAY IS ADDRESS THE BRAKES ON OUR OLD CHARGER HERE. NOW WE DON'T WANT TO SPEND A WHOLE LOT OF MONEY CAUSE LATER DOWN THE ROAD WE'RE GONNA SWAP THIS STUFF OUT, BUT WE DO WANT

TO MAKE SURE THAT WE'RE RIDING AROUND IN A SAFE CAR.

(MARC)>> NOW SINCE WE'RE ON A TIME CRUNCH AND WE HADN'T TORN INTO OUR CHARGER YET, WE ORDERED A BUNCH OF BRAKE PARTS FROM ROCK AUTO DOT COM THAT WE FIGURED WE WERE GONNA NEED. WE GOT A WHOLE BUNCH OF OE PARTS LIKE HARDWARE KIT, BRAKE SHOES, A MASTER CYLINDER, AND EVEN HOSES AND WHEEL CYLINDERS. NOW NORMALLY WE WOULDN'T ORDER A WHOLE BUNCH OF PARTS NOT KNOWING WHAT WE NEEDED, BUT SINCE THIS STUFF IS SO AFFORDABLE WE WENT AHEAD AND GOT EVERYTHING, JUST USE WHAT WE NEED.

(TOMMY)>> AT FIRST GLANCE OUR SHOES ARE IN PRETTY GOOD SHAPE. YOU CAN TELL THEY'RE NICE AND THICK BY THIS HOLE OF THE RIVET. NOW IF THESE SHOES WOULD HAVE BEEN THE BONDED TYPE I'D WANT TO SWAP THEM OUT BECAUSE OVER TIME THE ADHESIVE THAT GLUES

IT TO THE BACKING, WELL IT CAN TURN IT LOOSE. ANOTHER THING YOU WANT TO DO IS SWAP OUT THE HYDRAULICS CAUSE WE DON'T KNOW THE AGE OF THEM. OTHER THAN THAT AND SWAPPING OUT THE WHEEL SEAL, WE'LL BE IN GOOD SHAPE. THE FIRST THING WE'LL DO IS DISCONNECT THE HOSE FROM THE BRAKE LINES. THEN WE CAN UNSCREW IT FROM THE BACKING PLATE ON THE BRAKE. THEN START UNBOLTING THE BRAKE CYLINDER ITSELF. PRYING THIS THING OUT WOULD BE EASIER IF THE SHOES WERE OFF. SINCE THE SHOES ARE GOOD, DOING IT LIKE THIS WILL SAVE US A BIT OF WORK.

(MARC)>> WHILE THE DRUM IS OFF WE'RE GONNA REGREASE THIS BEARING, AS WELL AS REPLACE THIS OLD SEAL. THIS BEARING LOOKS PRETTY GOOD BUT THE GREASE LOOKS KINDA OLD. SO WE'RE GONNA JUST PACK SOME FRESH GREASE IN THERE. NOW AN OLD CAR LIKE THIS, THIS IS KIND OF A MAINTENANCE ITEM. YOU DON'T JUST PACK THE BEARINGS AND PUT THEM IN

THERE UNTIL THEY GO OUT. EVERY TIME YOU'RE IN THERE TO DO SOMETHING LIKE BRAKES YOU

MIGHT AS WELL PULL THESE THINGS OUT AND PACK SOME FRESH GREASE IN THERE. WE'LL USE SOME WD 40 SPECIALIST MULTI PURPOSE GREASE TO DO THE JOB, AND IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY YOU CAN SEE THAT OLD GREASE IS BEING SHOVED OUT WHEN WE PACK IN THE GOOD STUFF.

WE'LL ALSO DIG OUT THE EXCESS GREASE THAT'S DOWN INSIDE THE HUB.

THEN REPLACE THAT FRESHLY PACKED BEARING.

WITH OUR NEW SEAL IN PLACE WE'RE IN BUSINESS.

(TOMMY)>> NEXT UP WE CAN ATTACH OUR NEW BRAKE HOSE TO THE FACTORY LINES. [ hammer tapping ]

(TOMMY)>> AFTER REMOVING THAT WHEEL CYLINDER YOU CAN SEE SOME OF THAT OLD RUST AND GRIME FELL ON

TOP OF THE SPINDLE. SO MAKE SURE TO WIPE THAT OFF AND CLEAN IT WELL CAUSE YOU

DON'T WANT TO RUN ALL OF THAT THROUGH YOUR BEARINGS.

YOU WANT TO SEE SOME FORM OF A DRAG BUT NOT A WHOLE LOT.

[ hammer tapping ]

[ hammer tapping ]

(TOMMY)>> WELL THAT PRETTY MUCH DOES IT FOR THAT ONE. WE'VE GOT THREE MORE TO DO AND WE'LL SEE Y'ALL HERE SHORTLY.

(NARRATOR)>> STICK AROUND WHILE WE WRAP UP OUR SPEEDY FIXES TO MAKE OUR CHARGER RUN LIKE A CHAMP.

(MARC)>> HEY GUYS, WELCOME BACK. NOW WE FINISHED DOING ALL OF OUR BRAKES UNDERNEATH AND

INSTALLED THAT NEW MASTER CYLINDER, TOPPED OFF THE FLUID, AND GOT THE BRAKES BLED. NOW IT'S TIME TO MOVE ON TO UNDER THE HOOD. NOW WHILE TOMMY'S DOING THE TUNE UP I'M GONNA TRY TO FIGURE OUT WHAT EXACT ENGINE THIS IS. WE WERE TOLD IT WAS A 440 OUT OF A '71 BUT WHO KNOWS. WE KNOW THERE'S A STAMPING UNDER HERE WHERE THIS COIL IS. SO WE'RE JUST GONNA TAKE THIS BOLT OUT, MOVE IT TO THE SIDE, AND SEE IF WE CAN SEE IT.

WELL WE CAN SEE HERE THAT IT IS A 440 AND THE "H" MEANS THAT IT WAS BUILT IN '72.

(TOMMY)>> WELL I GOT ALL THE PLUGS OUT ON THIS SIDE, AND I'LL TELL YOU IT'S A PRETTY GOOD IDEA THAT WE WENT AHEAD AND SWAPPED THEM OUT. BY THE LOOK OF THESE OLD THINGS THEY'RE DEFINITELY PRACTICALLY FUEL FOWLED, BUT THIS IS A PRETTY COMMON PROBLEM, ESPECIALLY WHENEVER YOU CRANK YOUR RIDE UP,

BACK IT OUT OF THE SHOP, AND SHUT IT OFF. YOU DO THIS A COUPLE OF TIMES, IT FOWLS THE PLUGS OUT BECAUSE THE ENGINE NEVER GETS UP TO TEMPERATURE AND IT DOESN'T

CLEAN THOSE PLUGS. A TUNE UP ON THIS THING WILL DEFINITELY WAKE IT UP. TO GET OUR MOPAR DIALED IN WE WENT TO ROCK AUTO DOT COM AND GOT US A FEW PIECES. WE GOT THE STANDARD TUNE UP PIECES AND A SET OF MOTOR MOUNTS TO HELP KEEP THAT ENGINE PUT. NOW A FEW OF YOU BOYS MAY BE SITTING BACK THERE GOING, WHAT THE HECK MAN, YOU DON'T HAVE ANY POINTS? WELL LUCKILY FOR US SOMEBODY'S DONE CONVERTED THE CHARGER TO ELECTRONIC IGNITION. NOW ALL WE'VE GOT TO DO IS GET THESE PARTS ON.

WHEN INSPECTING YOUR CAP YOU WANT TO LOOK AT THE CONTACTS IN HERE AND SEE IF YOU SEE ANYTHING BURN UP OR CORRODED. THESE ARE IN BAD SHAPE, AND THE CAP NEEDS REPLACED.

(MARC)>> NOW WE CAN GET OUR NEW PLUG WIRES INSTALLED ON THIS OLD 440. WE'LL ALSO GO AHEAD AND SWAP IN THAT NEW FUEL FILTER. THEN HEAD UNDER THE ENGINE.

(TOMMY)>> WITH THIS SCREW JACK I'M GONNA PUT A LITTLE PRESSURE ON THE MOTOR TO SEE WHAT THE MOUNT DOES, AND IT PRETTY MUCH JUST GIVES WAY RIGHT OFF THE BAT. SO THAT MOUNT IS BAD. SO WE'RE GONNA CRANK IT UP PRETTY GOOD, WE'RE GONNA TAKE

OUT THIS BOLT, AND SEE IF WE CAN WIGGLE MOST OF THAT MOUNT OUT.

ONCE WE GET THE NEW MOUNT SET IN PLACE, WE CAN GET HER BOLTED IN, AND WE'VE JUST SOLVED OUR PROBLEM OF NOT BEING ABLE TO DO ANY BURNOUTS.

(MARC)>> WELL WE'VE GOT A FEW MORE THINGS THAT WE WANT TO DO TO OUR CHARGER BEFORE IT HITS THE ROAD AND WHILE WE HAVE IT HERE ON THE LIFT. WE'RE GONNA DO BELTS AND UPPER AND LOWER RADIATOR HOSES THAT WE GOT FROM ROCK AUTO DOT COM, AND SINCE THERE'S A LITTLE

LEAK IN THE RADIATOR WE'VE GOT SOME BARS LEAK STOP LEAK TO ADDRESS THAT, AND WE'RE NOT GONNA DO ALL OF THIS WITHOUT CHANGING THE OIL. SO WE'VE GOT SOME ROYAL PURPLE HIGH MILEAGE SYNTHETIC OIL AND NEW FILTER.

(NARRATOR)>> STILL AHEAD, HOP IN WITH US WHILE WE HEAD TO MOPARS AT THE MUSEUM.

(TOMMY)>> I DON'T KNOW IF YOU KNOW OR NOT, BUT THIS OLE MOPAR'S RUNNING A LITTLE BETTER THAN WHENEVER WE TOOK IT FOR A TEST SPIN.

(MARC)>> I NOTICED!

(TOMMY)>> NOW WE'RE JUST RIDING SOME TWO LANE ROADS HEADING SOUTHBOUND, TRYING TO GO SEE A GOOD FRIEND OF OURS.

(MARC)>> YEAH A BUDDY OF OURS HAS A MUSEUM DOWN IN ALEXANDER CITY, ALABAMA, AND IT'S MOSTLY MOPARS. SO IT'D BE IDEAL TO TAKE A LOOK AT THOSE CARS, AND THE SPECIAL EVENT HE'S GOT GOING ON IS CALLED MOPARS AT THE MUSEUM. I THINK THAT'S THE PERFECT PLACE FOR US TO TAKE THIS THING.

THERE'S GONNA BE A BUNCH OF PEOPLE THERE WITH THEIR MOPARS.

SO WE CAN LOOK AT THOSE CARS, TALK TO THOSE PEOPLE, GET SOME INSPIRATION FROM THEM AND THEIR CARS. IT'S GONNA BE EXCITING.

(TOMMY)>> WHETHER YOU'RE A MOPAR FAN OR NOT, ATTENDING A SHOW AT THE WELLBORN MUSCLE CAR MUSEUM WILL HAVE YOU GRINNING LIKE A KID IN A CANDY SHOP.

FOLKS FROM ALL AROUND HAVE BROUGHT THEIR RIDES TO SHOW OFF AND SHARE THIS WEEKEND. ROAD RUNNERS, SUPERBIRDS, RARE CUDAS, DUSTERS, AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN.

(MARC)>> WHILE INSIDE THE MUSEUM YOU CAN SEE ONE OF THE

MOST IMPRESSIVE COLLECTIONS TO BE FOUND ANYWHERE. ULTRA RARE RIDES, ORIGINALS AND RESTORATIONS, EVEN CARS THAT HAVE MADE RACING HISTORY, LIKE THE K&K DAYTONA. TIM WELLBORN IS A TRUE ENTHUSIAST AND A CHRYSLER CONNOISSEUR BUT THERE'S ONE THING YOU WON'T FIND AT THIS SHOW.

(TIM)>> THERE'LL NEVER BE A JUDGED CAR AT A WELLBORN EVENT BECAUSE IT'S JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT YOU MAKE ONE PERSON HAPPY AND THREE UNHAPPY, AND SO I BELIEVE IN TALKING ABOUT OUR CARS, AND THE HISTORY, AND WHY WE HAVE THEM, AND THAT'S WHAT WE DO HERE.

(TOMMY)>> SO WHAT DO DIE HARD MOPAR FANS THINK OF OUR NEW RIDE? [ laughing ]

(MARC)>> ALL RIGHT, WE KNOW IT'S A LITTLE ROUGH. ( )>> I WOULD CLEAN IT UP A LITTLE BIT. ( )>> I DON'T KNOW ABOUT HE HORNS. THAT WOULD BE SOMETHING THAT YOU COULD PROBABLY DO WITHOUT.

( )>> YEAH, THE 440 THAT'S IN IT, THAT'S GREAT!

MAYBE BUILD THAT OR SOMETHING. ( )>> I WOULD DEFINITELY DO, LIKE, FUEL INJECTION.

(TIM)>> I THINK I WOULD LEAVE IT LOOKING THE WAY IT LOOKS, BUT IT WOULD HAVE A SIXONE, OR A 392, OR SOMETHING UNDER THE HOOD. ( )>> PROBABLY LIKE A GRAY OR A BLACK.

( )>> IT'S GOT TO HAVE A REALLY GOOD SHEEN TO IT, NOT JUST A FLAT BLACK. ( )>> I THINK YOU NEED TO HAVE IT WORKED ON BEFORE YOU BRING IT BACK TO ANOTHER SHOW.

(TOMMY)>> WELL THAT JUST MIGHT BE THE BEST ADVICE THAT WE RECEIVED ALL DAY. WE FOUND A TON OF INSPIRATION AT THIS SHOW.

(MARC)>> SO MUCH THAT WE CAN'T WAIT TO GET BACK TO THE SHOP AND GET BUSY.

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS WITH OVERDRIVE ARE A GREAT UPGRADE FOR MUSCLE CARS AND HOT RODS, BUT ADAPTING THE SHIFT PATTERN TO A FACTORY STYLE SHIFTER CAN SOMETIMES BE A HASSLE, BUT SUMMIT RACING NOW OFFERS THESE SHIFT CONVERSION KITS FROM

SHIFT WORKS, WHICH AN ELIMINATE ALL THE GUESS WORK. THIS KIT ALLOWS YOU TO MODIFY YOUR FACTORY SHIFTER TO WORK WITH YOUR UPGRADED TRANSMISSION, WHETHER YOU'RE UPGRADING FROM A TWO SPEED TO THREE SPEED OR THREE SPEED TO FOUR SPEED.

EACH KIT COMES WITH ALL THE NECESSARY MOUNTING HARDWARE, SHIFT DETENT, AND SHIFT INDICATOR SO YOU KNOW YOU'RE

IN THE RIGHT GEAR.

(TOMMY)>> WHEN YOU HAVE A HOT MOTOR OR A RACE CAR THAT

REQUIRES HIGH OCTANE FUEL FINDING AN EASY WAY TO FILL UP THE TANK CAN BE QUITE THE CHORE. A CAN OF RACE GAS CAN CHANGE THAT. JUST POUR THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF THIS POWERFUL STUFF INTO YOUR TANK OF REGULAR PUMP GAS TO GET THE DESIRED OCTANE RATING, UP TO 105. CARRY THIS STUFF AROUND WITH YOU AND YOU WON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT TRYING TO FIND THE RIGHT GAS FOR YOUR RIDE, BUT WE'RE ALL OUT OF TIME FOR NOW GUYS. SO UNTIL NEXT TIME Y'ALL KEEP IT BETWEEN THE DITCHES.
