(ANNOUNCER)>> IT'S THE DAY OF DAYS ON DETROIT MUSCLE.

ARE YOU READY TO SEE OUR BIRD FLY THE COUPE?

AFTER WE GET THE COOLANT SYSTEM INSTALLED AND MAKE SURE OUR BARE BREAKER CB RADIO IS FUNCTIONAL, WE'LL DYNO TUNE THIS BAD BOY AND THEN SHE'LL BE READY TO SPREAD THOSE GIGANTIC GOLD FLAMING WINGS. PLUS A CLOSE LOOK AT SOME MOPAR ROYALTY THAT ISN'T AFRAID TO GET ITS TIRES DIRTY.

(JOE)>> TODAY OUR T/A BANDIT'S MAKING ITS GETAWAY. NOW LOADED WITH A LOT OF NEW LOOT SINCE WE STARTED THIS PONTIAC PROJECT. FROM THE 474 STROKER ENGINE ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE BEEFED UP REAR END. IT'LL RIDE ON A PERFORMANCE SUSPENSION AND HAUL ITSELF DOWN WITH NEW DISC BRAKES. OF COURSE WE GAVE IT BODY AND PAINT WORK, PLUS THE ICONIC SCREAMING CHICKEN DECAL AND STRIPES. AFTER SOME COOL CREATIVE TOUCHES ON THE OUTSIDE, WE DID A COMPLETE COSMETIC MAKEOVER INSIDE. IN FACT THIS BANDIT BIRD'S ABOUT READY FOR A ROAD RUN AND THEN A GIVEAWAY TO ONE OF YOU LUCKY GUYS. ABOUT ALL WE'VE GOT LEFT NOW IS SOME ENGINE TUNING, BLEEDING THE BRAKES, REPLACING THOSE UGLY WHEELS AND TIRES WITH SOMETHING NEW AND COOL. WE'LL ALIGN THE FRONT END OURSELVES AND WHAT ELSE TOMMY?

(TOMMY)>> WITH OUR TRANS AM, WELL IT'S KIND OF DUAL PURPOSE. YOU COULD TAKE IT TO THE TRACK OR YOU COULD EVEN TAKE IT TO A ROAD COURSE.

AND EITHER ONE OF THOSE, WELL YOU DON'T WANT TO FIGHT A HEAT ISSUE.

SO TO KEEP US FROM HAVING THAT TROUBLE, WE DECIDED TO GO WITH A FOUR CORE UNIT THAT WE GOT FROM ROCK AUTO DOT COM. AND WHILE WE WERE AT IT WE WENT AHEAD AND ORDERED SOME BELTS AND HOSES, AND EVEN A THERMOSTAT.

FOUR CORE RADIATORS ARE CAPABLE OF MORE COOLING THAN A THREE CORE MODEL BECAUSE THEY CAN EXPOSE YOUR COOLANT TO MORE AIR FLOW, ALLOWING IT TO DISSIPATE MORE HEAT. THIS MODEL IS A STOCK STYLE REPLACEMENT, THE BEAUTY OF WHICH IS THAT WE DON'T HAVE TO MAKE ANY MODIFICATIONS TO GET IT TO FIT. ON TOP OF THAT IT STILL HAS THE COOLING POWER TO HANDLE

THIS HOPPED UP STROKER. THE HOSES ARE STOCK STYLE AS WELL, SINCE WE OPTED FOR THIS PONTIAC BLOCK, WHICH MAKES EVERYTHING FIT THE WAY IT IS MEANT TO FROM THE FACTORY.

(JOE)>> IF YOU ARE OLD ENOUGH TO REMEMBER THE '70'S, YOU KNOW WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT. EITHER WAY I WANT YOU TO CHECK SOMETHING

OUT GOOD BUDDY. YOU COPY THAT? NO TRIBUTE BANDIT CAR WOULD BE COMPLETE WITHOUT A RADIO, CB THAT IS.

HOW ELSE YOU GONNA KNOW ABOUT THOSE BEARS IN THE BUSHES WHEN YOU BOOGEY DOWN THE BOULEVARD, 10-4.

(TOMMY)>> WE'RE READY TO START BLEEDING BRAKES, AND IT CAN BE ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT TASK SOME TIMES. AND FINDING A BUDDY TO HELP YOU, WELL IS SOMETIMES EVEN HARDER TO DO.

BUT WE'VE GOT A COOL TOOL HERE THAT YOU GUYS SHOULD CHECK OUT.

(JOE)>> THIS IS THE MOTIVE POWER BLEEDER AND HERE'S HOW IT WORKS. YOU JUST ATTACH THE POWER BLEEDER CAP TO THE BRAKE FLUID RESERVOIR AND TIGHTEN IT DOWN TO CREATE AN AIR TIGHT SEAL WITH THE PROVIDED HARDWARE. POUR NEW FLUID INTO THE CONTAINER, TIGHTEN THE CAP, AND PRESSURIZE THE POWER BLEEDER TO AROUND 10 POUNDS. AND YOU'LL WANT TO CHECK FOR ANY LEAKS. IF YOU DON'T SEE ANY, WELL GO AHEAD AND CRANK IT ON UP TO 20 POUNDS.

(TOMMY)>> WITH THE MOTIVE SYSTEM BRAKE BLEEDING IS NOW A ONE MAN JOB. WELL WE'VE GOT OUR BRAKE SYSTEM PRESSURIZED. SO NOW ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS CRACK THIS BLEEDER OPEN. AND THE BEAUTY BEHIND THAT SYSTEM, WELL IT'S GONNA PUSH ALL THE AIR OUT WITHOUT DOING ALL THAT PUMPING. START BLEEDING AT THE FARTHEST VALVE FROM THE MASTER CYLINDER AND WORK YOUR WAY CLOSER TO IT. IF YOU WANT TO SAVE THE FLUID OR YOU DON'T HAVE A CATCH BUCKET LIKE US, ATTACH A FLEXIBLE HOSE TO THE VALVE AND THE OTHER END INTO A RECEPTACLE. WHILE I FINISH UP BLEEDING THESE BRAKES, MISTER JOE'S GOT SOMETHING HE WANTS TO SHOW YOU. WE'VE BEEN TEASING YOU GUYS FOR QUITE A WHILE ABOUT THE WHEELS AND TIRES FOR THIS THING. THERE HERE READY TO GO ON.

(JOE)>> RIGHT YOU ARE THOMAS. YEAR ONE HAS INTRODUCED A NEW VERSION OF THE CLASSIC PONTIAC SNOWFLAKE WHEEL. IT'S A NEW VERSION BECAUSE BACK IN '77 TO '81 THEY WERE

15 INCHES IN DIAMETER. THESE ARE 17 BY NINE. YOU GET THEM IN THREE ACCENTS, BLACK, SILVER,

AND WELL OF COURSE GOLD. WE WRAPPED OUR WHEELS WITH FALKEN'S NEWEST HIGH PERFORMANCE TIRES, AZENAS FK 453'S.

THEY HAVE A UNIQUE TREAD DESIGN WITH LARGE OUTSIDE SHOULD BLOCKS FOR IMPROVED WET AND DRY HANDLING, AND LESS TIRE NOISE. IN FACT THE ONLY NOISE YOU'LL HEAR WITH THIS SETUP IS APPLAUSE. [ cheering ]

(ANNOUNCER)>> AS SOON AS YOU'RE DONE CLAPPING FOR JOY MAKE SURE YOU STICK AROUND TO KNOW HOW TO ALIGN YOUR OWN FRONT END WITH AN AFFORDABLE TOOL. OH, DID WE MENTION THAT A CELEBRITY LOOK ALIKE WAS GOING TO MAKE AN APPEARANCE?

(JOE)>> UH OH, WARDROBE MALFUNCTION.

(JOE)>> HEY WE'RE BACK AND READY TO CHECK THE FRONT END ALIGNMENT OF OUR T/A. WE GOT THIS LITTLE KIT FROM A COMPANY CALLED QUICK TRICK THAT ALLOWS US TO CHECK CAMBER, CASTOR, AND TOW RIGHT HERE. NOW IN CASE YOU'RE JUST A LITTLE RUSTY ON WHAT THOSE TERMS MEAN, HERE'S A LITTLE ANIMATION TO REALIGN YOUR MEMORY. AMONG THOSE THREE MOST POPULAR ALIGNMENT TERMS IS CAMBER, THE ANGLE OF THE WHEELS WHEN VIEWED FROM THE FRONT OF THE CAR. IF THE TOP LEANS OUT FROM THE CENTER THE CAMBER'S POSITIVE, IN FROM THE CENTER AND IT'S NEGATIVE. NOW CASTOR IS THE ANGLE OF THE STEERING PIVOT WHEN VIEWED FROM THE SIDE. IF THE TOP OF THE PIVOT LEANS TOWARD THE REAR, CASTOR IS POSITIVE. TOWARDS THE FRONT, IT'S NEGATIVE. TOE IS THE DIFFERENCE IN THE DISTANCE BETWEEN THE FRONT AND BACK OF THE TIRES, MEASURED IN FRACTIONS OF AN INCH. TOE IN MEANS THE FRONT TIRES ARE ACTUALLY CLOSER TO EACH OTHER.

TOE OUT MEANS JUST THE OPPOSITE. WELL NOW WE'RE GONNA SHOW YOU HOW TO USE THE KIT

TO CHECK ALL THREE. WE KNOW OUR NUMBERS ARE GONNA BE WAY OFF ON THIS CAR BECAUSE WE INSTALLED A BRAND NEW SUSPENSION AND JUST LEFT IT AT THAT.

(TOMMY)>> YEAH THERE ARE A FEW THINGS YOU WANT TO DO BEFORE YOU GET STARTED, AND ONE OF THEM IS CHECK THE FRONT AIR PRESSURE IN THE TIRES, MAKE SURE THEY'RE SET AT THE PROPER RATING. AND SECOND, BE SURE TO CENTER UP THE STEERING WHEEL. OFTEN TIMES PEOPLE USE A SMALL PIECE OF TAPE TO INDICATE DEAD STRAIGHT. THE FIRST THING WE'RE GONNA GET STARTED DOING IS MEASURING OUR CASTOR, AND WE'RE GONNA USE OUR COOL LITTLE DEVICE HERE THAT SIMPLE ATTACHES TO THE WHEEL

WITH THESE THREE LITTLE FINGERS ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RIM. THE QUICK TRICK TOOL SAVES YOU FROM HAVING TO GO TO THE ALIGNMENT SHOP.

(JOE)>> ONCE WE MOUNT OUR GAUGE, WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THE TOOL SITS AT 90 DEGREES. THEN WITH THE GAUGE MOUNTED HORIZONTALLY TURN THE WHEEL THREE QUARTERS OF A TURN INWARD AND ZERO THE GAUGE.

THEN TURN THE WHEEL BACK TO THE STARTING POINT AND OUTWARD THREE QUARTERS OF A TURN.

(TOMMY)>> NOW NOT ALL CARS ARE CREATED EQUAL AS FAR AS ADJUSTING THE SUSPENSION. WITH OURS YOU WOULD BACK OFF THIS NUT AND THIS NUT HERE, AND ADD A SHIM OR REMOVE THEM FROM THIS POINT OR THIS POINT HERE. WE'LL ACTUALLY ROTATE THE CONTROL ARM AND THAT'LL ADJUST YOUR CAMBER OR CASTOR. DON'T FORGET THAT YOU NEED TO REPEAT ALL OF THAT ON THE OTHER WHEEL. NOW LETS CHECK THE CAMBER. WE'LL TURN THE WHEEL BACK TO THE CENTER, PLACE THE GAUGE ON THE FRONT OF THE TIRE, AND ZERO IT OUT. THEN PLACE IT HORIZONTALLY ON THE BRACKET. NOW THE READING SAYS WE'RE A LITTLE BIT OVER ONE DEGREE. YOU'LL WANT TO NOTE THIS LITTLE BITY ARROW POINTING UP OR POINTING DOWN INDICATES POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE. YOUR APPLICATION IS GOING TO DETERMINE YOUR SPECS FOR YOUR ALIGNMENT. IF YOU'RE TRYING TO GET THE MAXIMUM WEAR OUT OF YOUR TIRES, WELL THAT'S GONNA BE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THAN IF YOU'RE TRYING TO CARVE OUT SOME CORNERS AT A ROAD COURSE.

(JOE)>> NOW TO GET OUR TOE READINGS WE'RE GONNA USE THESE TAPE MEASURES FROM THE KIT LAID ACROSS THE FLOOR IN FRONT OF EACH FRONT TIRE AND MAKE SURE TO LOCK THEM IN PLACE. NOW WE NEED TO GO TO THE OTHER SIDE, SLIP THE ENDS OF THE TAPE MEASURE INTO THE SLOTS OF THE BAR. NOW WE CAN SLIDE THE TAPES INTO THE SLOTS OF THE PASSENGER SIDE BAR FRONT AND BACK. AND WE ARE JUST ABOUT RIGHT, BOTH NUMBERS MATCH. HAD THE FRONT NUMBER BEEN LARGER THAN THE REAR NUMBER THAT WOULD MEAN WE HAD TOE OUT. IF THE REAR NUMBER WAS LARGER, OF COURSE TOE IN. THE FIRST TIME WE DYNO'ED OUR TRANS AM WE GOT 152 HORSEPOWER AND A WHOLE LOT OF SMOKE.

(TOMMY)>> BUT THIS TIME AROUND SHOULD BE A DIFFERENT STORY ALL TOGETHER. WE'RE GONNA PLAY WITH THE TUNING A LITTLE BIT ON THIS BEAST, AND RODNEY BUTLER FROM BUTLER PERFORMANCE CAME IN TO HELP US WITH IT, STARTING WITH SETTING THE TIMING.

(RODNEY)>> WE'RE GONNA GO AHEAD AND START WITH 34 DEGREES AND SEE HOW IT LIKES THAT FIRST.

(JOE)>> THE INJECTION SYSTEM NEEDS TO LEARN THE FUEL MAP TO THIS MOTOR. SO WE'LL SLOWLY RUN IT THROUGH THE RPM'S TO LET THE COMPUTER LEARN. [ engine revving ]

(TOMMY)>> OUT OF THE BOX 367 TO THE REAR WHEELS AND 415 FOOT POUNDS OF TORQUE. [ engine revving ]

(JOE)>> EACH TIME WE MAKE A PULL IT GAINS POWER, DIALING IN THE FUEL AND AIR RATIO. WE'RE FINDING THAT AS FAR AS TIMING GOES IT SEEMS TO PREFER THAT 34 DEGREE ADVANCE. [ engine revving ]

(JOE)>> FINAL TOTALS, 419 REAR WHEEL HORSEPOWER ALONG WITH 468 FOOT POUNDS OF TORQUE. THAT'S A WHOOPING 267 MORE HORSES OVER THE ANEMIC ORIGINAL 400 INCH FACTORY ENGINE. THAT OUGHT TO WORK!

(ANNOUNCER)>> LETS CHARGE AHEAD AND GET UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL WITH A GOOD OLE BOY THAT'S GOT A BIG BLOCK TO MOVE ALL THAT METAL.

(ANNOUNCER)>> DETROIT MUSCLE SALUTES A 1970 CHARGER R/T.

( )>> CHARLOTTE WILL YOU BE MY, MY, OH MY! ( )>> GORGEOUS CAR, WHAT IS IT? ( )>> IT'S THE NEW DODGE CHARGER!

( )>> WHAT'S THAT? ( )>> THAT'S THE OPTIONAL HURST SHIFTER. ( )>> HEY, THESE NEW HIGH BACK SEATS! ( )>> YEAH, SEE HOW NICE THEY FIT. ( )>> IT REALLY RIDES SMOOTH, HUH AL? ( )>> WHY DON'T WE FIND OUT. ( )>> ELLIOT!

(JOE)>> NOT SURE HOW ELLIOT MADE OUT WITH HIS NEW FOUND FRIENDS BUT WE DO KNOW THIS, THE SECOND GENERATION CHARGER HIT A HOMERUN WITH CONSUMERS.

(TOMMY)>> IT WAS A DEPARTURE FROM ITS FIRST OFFERING BACK IN 1966, WHICH WAS BASICALLY A FASTBACK CORONET. SECOND GENS WERE MORE AERODYNAMIC WITH STYLING CUES BEFITTING THE TRACK CARS OF THE DAY.

THIS ONE WAS A TRUE BARN FIND BY OWNER BILL FAHEY.

(BILL)>> IT HAD A CHICKEN COOP ON TOP AND ENOUGH CLOTHES TO START A YARD SALE INSIDE OF IT. IT WAS IN PRETTY BAD SHAPE. TOOK IT COMPLETELY APART, EVERY NUT AND BOLT, HAD IT MEDIA BLASTED. SENT THE BODY TO THE PAINT SHOP AND HAD THEM PAINT IT ON A ROTISSERIE. AND THEN WHEN WE GOT IT BACK I PUT IT ALL BACK TOGETHER. IT TOOK ME ABOUT FOUR AND A HALF YEARS IN TOTAL TIME TO DO IT.

(JOE)>> 1970 WAS THE FIRST YEAR FOR THE CHARGER'S 440 SIX PACK OPTION. AND WITH THE ORIGINAL MISSING, BILL FOUND AND REBUILT HIS FROM A JUNKYARD SUPER BEE.

(TOMMY)>> PAIRED WITH A FOUR SPEED MANUAL TRANS, IT WAS A POWERFUL COMBINATION, 390 HORSEPOWER, 490 TORQUE. AND FROM THIS MOPAR WEIGHING NEARLY TWO TONS, ZERO TO 60 IN SIX SECONDS, THE QUARTER MILE IN 14.4.

(JOE)>> THE R/T STOOD FOR ROAD AND TRACK, SO THE DODGE BOYS GAVE IT A HEAVY DUTY SUSPENSION SITTING ABOVE WIDE TREAD TIRES.

(TOMMY)>> NEW THIS YEAR WAS A MORE AGGRESSIVE FRONT END WITH A WRAP AROUND FRONT BUMPER. LARGER SIDE SCOOPS WERE MOUNTED ON THE FRONT EDGE OF THE DOORS.

(JOE)>> THE BUMBLE BEE STRIPE ON THE REAR DECK WAS AN OPTION, BUT STANDARD WAS THE RACING STYLE FUEL CAP AND TAILLIGHTS THAT STRETCHED THE ENTIRE WIDTH OF THE TAIL PANEL.

(TOMMY)>> THE INTERIOR WAS REDONE IN BURNT ORANGE,

MATCHING THE ORIGINAL ORDER SHEET, AND INCLUDED OPTIONAL RACE GAUGES. AND FOR $130 EXTRA BUCKS FACTORY EIGHT TRACK.

(BILL)>> I WANTED TO KEEP IT AS ORIGINAL AS POSSIBLE CAUSE THE CLASSES I ENTER IN IS THE ORIGINAL CLASS. BUT AT THE SAME TIME I WANTED TO GET THE MOST OUT OF IT. SO I'VE DONE A FEW LITTLE TWEAKS TO THE INSIDE OF THE ENGINE, BUT WHAT LIMITS ME ARE THE EXHAUST MANIFOLDS. THEY'RE STOCK AND YOU CAN ONLY PULL SO MUCH POWER OUT OF THEM. IT'S LIKE A TIME CAPSULE. IT'S LIKE THIS IS WHAT IT USED TO BE WHEN I WAS LIKE 20 YEARS OLD. AND I DON'T RAISE AS MUCH CAIN AS I USED TO WITH IT. BUT I CERTAINLY ENJOY IT, I JUST LOVE IT. ( )>> YOU CAN COPE WITH A WHOLE NEW IMAGE, YOU COULD BE DODGE MATERIAL. ( )>> ELLIOT!

(ANNOUNCER)>> STILL AHEAD, THE GIVEAWAY TRANS AM TAKES IT FIRST LIGHT.

(JOE)>> UNDERSTANDABLY THIS IS GONNA BE OUR FAVORITE PART OF THE BANDIT TRANS AM PROJECT, THE PAYOFF.

A BREAKER 1-9, ANY SMOKEYS IN THE SKY OR THE BUSHES. FINALLY GETTING TO FEEL HOW THE ENGINE AND OTHER NEW PARTS PERFORM TOGETHER ON THE CURVES AND STRAIGHT AWAYS.

(TOMMY)>> SO WHAT DO YOU THINK JOE?

(JOE)>> I'LL TELL YOU WHAT, I LIKE, I LIKE THE WAY IT SOUNDS.

(TOMMY)>> IT'S A REALLY FUN CAR TO DRIVE. IT STEERS, IT STOPS, IT GOES, IT'S COMFORTABLE, AND NOT TO MENTION THE ATTENTION A PERSON CAN GET IN IT. YOU KNOW, WHETHER OR NOT YOU LIKE THESE TYPE OF CARS OR NOT, YOU HAVE TO RESPECT THEM MAN CAUSE THEY GET THE ATTENTION.

(JOE)>> SOME LUCKY DUDE OR DUDETTE IS GONNA BE GETTING THIS THING PRETTY SOON TOO. THAT'S GONNA BE NICE, FOR THEM AT LEAST.

(TOMMY)>> YOU KNOW THERE'S NOTHING UNDER THE SUN BETTER LOOKING THAN A BLACK MUSCLE CAR, UNLESS IT'S A BLACK T/A MUSCLE CAR WITH NEW PAINT, GOLD STRIPES, AND THOSE

SPECIAL SNOWFLAKE WHEELS. THIS MAY BE OUR COOLEST LOOKING PROJECT EVER. AND JUST THINK, WE'RE GIVING THIS THING AWAY.

(JOE)>> WELL THAT MEANS WE'VE GOT TO MAKE THE BEST USE OF OUR SEAT TIME BEFORE WE SURRENDER THIS BEAST.

(TOMMY)>> BY NOW YOU MIGHT BE WONDERING IF WE'RE GONNA GET CRAZY AND DO A BURNOUT WITH THIS CAR, WELL NO! WE'LL PROBABLY HAVE TO DO SEVERAL BEFORE THE DAY'S OVER. YES SIR, I BELIEVE THEM BUTLER BOYS KNOCKED IT PLUM OUT OF THE PARK.

(JOE)>> THIS BANDIT CAR'S A FUN RIDE, BUT I'D BE HAVING A LOT MORE FUN IF TOMMY QUIT HOGGING THE WHEEL. YEAH, I THINK I COULD DRIVE THIS THING WITH MORE CREATIVITY. THAT'S MORE LIKE IT RIGHT, REAL BANDIT. HEY CLETUS, YOU GOT A COPY? UH OH, WARDROBE MALFUNCTION! WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT.

(TOMMY)>> DON'T SWEAT IT JOE, EVERYBODY'S GONNA BE LOOKING AT THE CAR ANYWAYS. NOW SOON THE WINNER WILL RIDE AWAY IN A ONE OF A KIND BANDIT, ONE THAT WAS BUILT TO STEAL ALL THE ATTENTION.

(JOE)>> YEAH, IT'S FAST AND IT'S BEAUTIFUL. SO EVEN THOUGH THE T/A'S GONNA BE KEPT INDOORS, IT'S GONNA NEED SOME PROTECTION. NOW YOU'VE SEEN US USE OUTDOOR COVERS FROM COVERS FOR CARS DOT COM BEFORE.

(TOMMY)>> FOR OUR SUPERCHARGED DART WE EMAILED THEM OUR MEASUREMENTS FOR A CUSTOM FITTED COVER, WHICH WE NEEDED FOR THAT BIG BLOWER STICKING OUT OF THE HOOD.

(JOE)>> FOR UNMODIFIED MODELS THEY HAVE OVER 90,000 PATTERNS AVAILABLE. WELL LIKE THE ONE THAT'S USED FOR THE '69 PROJECT CAMARO AND THE EDELBROCK MUSTANG GIVEAWAY FASTBACK. SINCE THIS CAR HAS A LOT OF TIME AND MONEY PUT INTO IT, AN AFFORDABLE PIECE OF INSURANCE TO SAFE GUARD IT IS A GOOD INVESTMENT.

(TOMMY)>> SO IT MAKES SENSE TO RELY ON COVERS FOR CARS DOT COM FOR OUR TRANS AM.

NOW YOU COULD GO OUT AND BUY UNIVERSAL $30 DOLLAR COVER

AND IT'D KEEP THE DUST OFF OF IT, BUT IT WON'T PROTECT YOUR PRIZED RIDE FROM MOISTURE AND HUMIDITY THAT'LL DAMAGE IT OVER TIME.

(JOE)>> COVERS FOR CARS DOT COM USES KIMBERLY CLARK'S BLOCK IT MATERIAL FOR THEIR OUTDOOR AND INDOOR COVERS. IT HAS FOUR LAYERS FOR A WIDE RANGE OF PROTECTION.

(TOMMY)>> THIS INDOOR DUST TOP COVER PROVIDES TWICE AS MUCH DUST PROTECTION AS WOVEN FLANNEL OR SINGLE LAYER FABRICS. IT'S BREATHABLE AND RELEASES TRAPPED MOISTURE. WHICH WE ALL KNOW MOISTURE EQUALS CORROSION.

(JOE)>> IT'S SOFT AND WON'T REDUCE ANY OF THE GLOSS OF YOUR CLEAR COAT. IT'S LIGHT BUT THICK ENOUGH TO PROTECT AGAINST DINGS AND SCRATCHES. WHY YOU CAN EVEN GET A CUSTOM SCREEN PRINT TO PERSONALIZE IT.

ON TOP OF THAT, SCREEN PRINTING AVAILABLE IN UP TO FOUR COLORS. TOM JUST THINK OF THE LOGO POSSIBILITIES, LIKE IF

YOU'RE IN A CAR CLUB.

(TOMMY)>> YOU BET MISTER JOE, AND TO ORDER ONLINE WITH FREE SHIPPING GO TO COVERS FOR CARS DOT COM.

(JOE)>> WELL SPEAKING OF FREE WE'VE GOT ANOTHER EPISODE OF DETROIT MUSCLE FOR YOU NEXT TIME, AND IT TOO WON'T COST YOU ANYTHING.
