(ANNOUNCER)>> TODAY ON HORSEPOWER, A RARE LOOK AT CHEVY RACING HISTORY IN THE MAKING. YOU'LL SEE HOW CHEVY PERFORMANCE BUILDS ITS NEW VERSION OF COPO FACTORY RACE CARS, ALL DESTINED FOR ALL OUT NHRA COMPETITION.

(MIKE)>> CHEVROLET PERFORMANCE IS GOING DRAG RACING AGAIN, AND TODAY ON HORSEPOWER WE'RE GONNA SHOW YOU HOW. IT'S ALL THANKS TO A SPECIAL EDITION RACE CAR SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR STOCK ELIMINATOR COMPETITION.

(JOE)>> YEAH AS YOU'RE ABOUT TO SEE, IT'S A CAR BUILT BY HAND, BUILT TO WIN RACES, AND PART OF A LEGACY THAT

GOES BACK TO 1969. THAT'S WHEN AMERICA FIRST HEARD THAT NOW FAMOUS NAME, COPO CAMARO. COPO STANDS FOR CENTRAL OFFICE PRODUCTION ORDER, SOMETHING CHEVROLET USED IN THE 1960'S FOR ITS FACTORY RACE CARS, LIKE THIS ORIGINAL '69 COPO ZL ONE. THE NEW LIMITED PRODUCTION OFF HIGHWAY HOT RODS CARRY ON THE SAME LEGACY, THIS TIME WITH A STICKER PRICE OF $89,000 AND UP.

(SANDOR)>> THERE'S BEEN A GROUP OF CORE ENTHUSIAST AND LEADERSHIP INSIDE THAT KNEW WE'VE GOT TO GET BACK INTO GRASS ROOTS DRAG RACING.

(JOE)>> ENGINE CHOICES INCLUDE TWO SUPERCHARGED VERSIONS OF THE LSX BASED 327 AND A NATURALLY ASPIRATED LS SEVEN BASED 427. THEY ALL SHARE MOST OF THE SAME DYNO PROVEN COMPONENTS CHOSEN AFTER A LOT OF INPUT FROM RACERS. TO FOLLOW THE STORY OF A COPO IN THE MAKING, WE START

AT GM'S PERFORMANCE BUILD CENTER IN WIXOM, MICHIGAN. THE FIRST ENGINES BUILT HERE IN 2005 WERE THE LS SEVEN FOR THE CORVETTE Z-06, AND THE NORTHSTAR LZ THREE. ONE ENGINE AND ONE BUILDER TRAVEL THROUGH A SERIES OF STATIONS WHERE COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY INSURES COMPLETE ACCURACY. FOR SEVERAL YEARS THE CENTER'S OFFERED A GUEST ENGINE BUILDING PROGRAM FOR NEW OWNERS WHO WANT TO PAY A LITTLE EXTRA FOR THE HANDS ON EXPERIENCE.

(ROB)>> EVERYBODY'S BEEN IMPRESSED WITH THE FACILITY AND THE WHOLE PROCESS, AND WISHING THEY HAD SOME OF THE TOOLS IN THEIR OWN GARAGE.

(JOE)>> BOY DON'T WE ALL.

(CHARLIE)>> GIVE IT A LITTLE PUSH, LET IT GO FAR ENOUGH IN.

(JOE)>> CHARLIE LINGENFELTER'S HERE TO

ASSEMBLE THE 427 FOR HIS NEW COPO. HE'S THE BROTHER OF THE LATE LEGENDARY ENGINE GURU JOHN LINGENFELTER.

(CHARLIE)>> MY BROTHER WON HIS FIRST RACE IN A '69 CAMARO THAT I HELPED HIM BUILD. I THOUGHT I'D DO A LITTLE COPO AND A LITTLE BIT OF

COMMEMORATIVE OF THAT EVENT. SO THAT'S WHAT GOT ME TO DO THIS. I'M GONNA RACE IT, YES, IT'S GONNA BE RACED. ( )>> WE'RE GONNA RUN ALL THE GREENS. THEN WE'RE GONNA ROTATE IT 360 DEGREES, WHICH WILL PUT ANYTHING THAT'S LIFTED BACK ON BASE CIRCLE.

(JOE)>> WHILE CHARLIE CONTINUES ASSEMBLING HIS 427.

( )>> JUST BRING IT DOWN REAL SLOW.

(JOE)>> MIKE GALLEY GOT TO SEE WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BUILD AN LS SEVEN, WITH SOME HELP OF COURSE.

(MIKE)>> THIS IS PRETTY NEAT OUT HERE.

THE TOOLS AND JUST THE PROCESS AND THE WAY EVERYTHING FLOWS DOWN THE LINE. THERE'S NO WAY TO MAKE A MISTAKE. THE TOOLS DO ALL THE TORQUING FOR YOU, AND YOU HAVE TO ACTUALLY USE BAR CODES AND SCAN EACH TIME YOU MAKE A TORQUE OR MOVE TO A STATION.

SO THERE'S NO ROOM FOR ERROR. SO WE KNOW THE MOTOR'S GONNA RUN GOOD WHEN IT LEAVES HERE.

(JOE)>> SOME OF THE PARTS, LIKE THE INTAKE MANIFOLD, ARE SLAVE PARTS. AFTER FINAL TESTING, THEY GET REPLACED WITH NEW ONES. AT THE COMPLETION OF THE ASSEMBLY PROCESS THE ENGINE IS SUBJECTED TO A COLD TEST. ( )>> THAT'S GONNA START EVERYTHING GOING.

(JOE)>> AN ELECTRIC MOTOR RUNS THE ENGINE WHILE TORQUE PRESSURE, NOISE, IGNITION, OIL PRESSURE, AIR FLOW, AND ANY MISFIRES ARE MONITORED. CHARLIE'S 427 GETS THE GREEN LIGHT. SO IT'S OFF TO THIS CLEAN ASSEMBLY ROOM. HERE'S WHERE THE SLAVE PARTS ARE REPLACED WITH NEW STUFF, LIKE A HOLLEY HIGH RAM INTAKE. WELL THAT ONE'S DONE.

OH, HOW WAS YOUR DAY ON THE LS SEVEN LINE?

(MIKE)>> I'LL TELL YOU WHAT, THAT WAS

QUITE THE EXPERIENCE.

WE BUILT THAT ENGINE IN A LITTLE UNDER TWO HOURS AND WE KNOW THERE WERE NO MISTAKES MADE, AND THAT'S A GOOD FEELING. WHEN THAT ENGINE GOES INTO A CORVETTE, WE KNOW IT'S GONNA MAKE PLENTY OF POWER AND HAVE PLENTY OF MILES BEHIND IT.

(JOE)>> IT BETTER CAUSE I'M GIVING THE OWNER YOUR PHONE NUMBER. WELL MEANWHILE CHARLIE'S 427 HERE AND ALL THESE COPO'S ARE A DONE DEAL AND READY FOR A RIDE TO ANOTHER

FACILITY WHERE THEY GET MATED UP WITH THE CARS, AND WE'RE GONNA SHOW YOU HOW THAT HAPPENS.

(MIKE)>> AND THAT'S OVER IN OXFORD WHERE WE ACTUALLY GIVE A HAND ON BUILDING ONE OF THESE FACTORY COPO RACE CARS.

(JOE)>> WE'VE GOT TO WORK, GET DIRTY?

(MIKE)>> I DID MY WORK HERE, YOU'RE WORKING TOMORROW.

(SANDOR)>> THIS IS REALLY THE FIRST PRODUCTION RACE CAR THAT'S COME OUT FROM CHEVROLET. WE'RE TALKING ABOUT PRODUCTIONIZING A RACE CAR, SERIAL PRODUCTION AND BRING IT TO THE PUBLIC TO MEET A DEMAND THAT FULFILLS THEIR EXPECTATIONS OF THAT CAMARO LEGACY. IT'S A GREAT DEAL!

(JOE)>> WE JUST SAW THE ASSEMBLY OF AN ENGINE THAT LIVES UP TO THAT LEGACY. FOR THE REST OF THE BUILD WE GO TO A DEDICATED FACILITY IN OXFORD, MICHIGAN.

(MIKE)>> IT'S LAID OUT PRECISELY FOR THE

FABRICATION AND ASSEMBLY OF LIMITED PRODUCTION COPO RACE CARS. NOW THE STOCK CAMARO SS BODIES AND CHASSIS FIRST ARRIVE AT THIS FABRICATION ROOM.

(ROGER)>> BECAUSE WE'RE REPLACING THE INDEPENDENT REAR SUSPENSION WITH A DRAG RACE ONLY SOLID REAR AXLE. THERE'S A LOT OF BRACKETRY AND COMPONENTS THAT ARE USED IN A PRODUCTION CAR THAT WE DON'T NEED.

(ADRIAN)>> ONCE WE GET ALL THE BIG STUFF OUT OF THE WAY, WE CAN ACTUALLY GO IN AND START MAKING LIKE REAL SCRIBE LINES, YOU KNOW, REAL HARD POINTS TO PICK UP ON. IT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT CUT ON THE CAR JUST BECAUSE THIS HAS TO BE RIGHT. WHAT WE'RE DOING HERE IS WE'LL PUT TWO MARKS RIGHT IN HERE. WE'LL LEAVE ABOUT ONE INCH LONG, AND WE'LL MAKE THOSE A PRECISION CUT. AND THEN WE'LL PUT A PRECISION CUT AS WELL ON THE BACK. AND THEN SINCE WE HAVE A CAP THAT GOES OVER THIS, WE CAN JUST PLASMA CUT TO THE CONTOUR OF THE FRAME THE WHOLE REST OF IT. AND THEN THE CAP, YOU KNOW, IT HAS EARS ON THE SIDE TO GIVE IT RIGIDITY.

THIS IS OUR FRONT PLATE THAT OUR LOWER CONTROL ARM ATTACHES TO. EIGHTH INCH STEEL, THEY'RE LASER CUT TO FIT RIGHT INSIDE OF OUR LITTLE POCKET HERE.

IT FITS SNUGLY ALL AROUND.

PUSH IT UP NICE AND TIGHT IN THE FRONT. THAT'S PRETTY MUCH IT FOR THE REAR FRAME TIE IN.

(JOE)>> NEXT ADRIAN CAN SLIDE THE FIRST SUBFRAME CONNECTOR INTO PLACE, TACK WELD IT INSIDE, BEFORE FINAL

WELDING ON BOTH SIDES.

(MIKE)>> OVER HERE A WORKER IS FABBING UP A MOD PLATE FOR THE CAR'S FIREWALL.

IT'LL HAVE HOLES FOR THE DIFFERENT THROTTLE LOCATIONS

OF THE THREE COPO ENGINES.

(JOE)>> THIS IS ALSO WHERE EACH CHASSIS GETS A CHROMOLY NHRA CERTIFIED ROLL CAGE.

EACH ONE WITH THE SAME DIMENSIONS THANKS TO

CAREFULLY DESIGNED TOOLING AND PRODUCTION DATA.

(RICH)>> WE NAIL THOSE DIMENSIONS EVERY TIME. FOR EXAMPLE, OUR ROLL CAGES, ONCE THE COMPONENTS ARE PUT IN THE VEHICLE, THEY'RE WITH IN A 40 THOUSANDTHS TOLERANCE.

(JOE)>> AFTER FABRICATION THE CAMARO'S MOVED TO THE CLEAN ROOM.

FIRST FOR PAINT ON NEWLY EXPOSED AREAS, AND OCCASIONALLY AN EXTRA COAT ON THE COMPOSITE HOOD. ALRIGHT, THEY'VE GOT ONE LAST HOOD TO CLEAR COAT. THEY'RE ACTUALLY GONNA LET ME DO IT. THESE GUYS ARE BRAVE I GUESS.

FORTUNATELY IT DOESN'T TAKE A REAL EXPERT FOR THIS.

(MIKE)>> IT DOES HOWEVER TAKE EXPERT PLANNING TO INSURE EACH COPO GETS THE COMPONENTS A STOCK ELIMINATOR RACER WOULD EXPECT.

(ROGER)>> BECAUSE THE CAR WAS INTENDED TO BE USED BY PROFESSIONAL DRAG RACERS, WE KNEW WHAT LEVEL OF PERFORMANCE THEY WERE GONNA EXPECT.

(JOE)>> WELL NEXT MIKE PITCHES IN FOR THE ALL IMPORTANT REAR AXLE AND SUSPENSION, AS WE CONTINUE OUR COPO CREATION HERE ON HORSEPOWER.

(ROGER)>> THERE'S A LOT OF CLASSES THAT MAKE UP STOCK ELIMINATOR CATEGORY. THIS CAR WAS DESIGNED AROUND ABOUT EIGHT CLASSES.

(MIKE)>> WE JUST ROUNDED THE CORNER TO THE FIRST

AREA OF THE CLEAN ROOM. NOW AT THIS STATION ALL THE REAR SUSPENSION AND THE STRANGE REAR AXLE GET INSTALLED. FIRST WE ADD HARDWARE TO THE UPPER CONTROL ARMS AND INSTALL HIM. NOW WE'LL ROLL IN THE STRANGE NINE INCH, LOADED WITH 35 SPLINE AXLES AND A LIGHT WEIGHT STEEL SPOOL. ( )>> I'M GONNA LOWER THE CAR JUST A LITTLE BIT.

(MIKE)>> FROM OUTSIDE IN WITH THIS ONE. NEXT WE CAN BOLT UP THE LOWER CONTROL ARMS AND MOVE UP TO THE ADJUSTABLE HEIMS FOR THE ANTIROLL BAR. GOING ALL THE WAY UP? ( )>> YEP, ALL THE WAY UP.

(MIKE)>> FOLLOWED BY THE ANTIROLL BAR ITSELF, AND FROM IT A PAIR OF LINKS THAT BOLT TO

THE REAR END HOUSING. THESE STRANGE COIL OVER SHOCKS ARE DOUBLE ADJUSTABLE AND WE CAN MOUNT THEM UP NEXT. ( )>> OKAY, WE'RE GONNA LOWER IT DOWN MORE BUT WE WANT TO SPIN THESE SHOCKS TO WHERE THAT'S IN. SO A RACER CAN GET TO THAT EASIER. THAT'S THE ONE THEY USE THE MOST.

(MIKE)>> WITH THAT, THE STAND CAN GO AWAY AND... SHE'S A HANGER. THE LAST COMPONENT AT THIS STATION IS THE PAN HERD BAR. NOW WE CAN TORQUE THE FASTENERS TO EACH OF THEIR SPECS, AND AFTER YOU FINISH EACH ONE, YOU MARK IT WITH A PAINT PEN AND ADD YOUR INITIALS TO THIS FORM. (MIKE L.)>> ON THIS STATION HERE WE'LL BE LOADING THE COCKPIT, AND WE LIKE TO BUILD THINGS UP AS COMPLETE AS WE CAN BEFORE IT GOES IN THE CAR. BECAUSE OF THE CHASSIS MODIFICATIONS AND ROLL CAGE, IT'S MUCH MORE DIFFICULT TO ACTUALLY WORK ON THINGS IN THE VEHICLE.

PLUS IT'S ALSO A LOT FASTER AND SIMPLER FOR US TO INSTALL IT AS A ASSEMBLY. SO WE'LL BUILD UP THIS WHOLE CROSS BEAM WITH ALL THE WIRING ALREADY LACED ON. THE COCKPIT HERE WITH THE BODY CONTROL MODULE PREWIRED, ROUNDS ATTACHED, AND WE ALSO PUT ON THE MOD PLATE HERE WITH THE MODIFICATIONS THAT WE MAKE TO THE MOD PLATE FOR THE DIFFERENT THROTTLES. WE USE A PRODUCTION BRAKE PEDAL THAT WE MODIFY TO WORK WITH THE AFTERMARKET MASTER CYLINDER. (MIKE L.)>> OKAY , IF YOU WANT TO HOP AROUND.

(MIKE)>> OKAY!

(RICH)>> IT'S EXTREMELY HARD TO WALK FROM ONE CAR TO THE OTHER AND FIND ANY VARIANTS WHAT SO EVER.

YOU'D LITERALLY HAVE TO DO MICROMETERS TO DO THAT.

(JOE)>> AT THIS NEXT STATION HEI PRO GLIDE TRANSMISSIONS ARE BOLTED UP TO ENGINES, IN THIS CASE A 427. ALONG WITH THE STARTER AND ALL THE OTHER COMPONENTS NEEDED TO FINISH IT UP. NOW THE ENGINE CAN GO UNDER THE CAMARO BODY FOR INSTALLATION. (MIKE L.)>> HOW ARE YOU LOOKING FOR HEADER CLEARANCE ON THAT SIDE.

(MIKE)>> HEADER CLEARANCE IS GOOD.

(MIKE L.)>> CAN I COME YOUR WAY A LITTLE BIT?

(MIKE)>> YES YOU CAN.

(RICH)>> WHEN YOU GET DOWN TO IT IT'S ALL MATH. SO IF WE DRIVE THE MATH UP FRONT, IT SHOULD GO TOGETHER

THERE LIKE A BIG PUZZLE.

(MIKE)>> THIS ONE'S FARTHER ALONG IN THE PROCESS, COMPLETE WITH A HIGH PERFORMANCE AEROMOTIVE FUEL SYSTEM, READY FOR FINISHING TOUCHES INSIDE.

THAT'S RIGHT, IT'S A RACE CAR, NO BACK SEAT. ALL COPO'S ROLL ON HOOSIER RACE TIRES WRAPPED AROUND

BOGART LIGHT WEIGHT WHEELS.

(JOE)>> FINALLY TIME FOR FIRE UP AND A LITTLE TUNING.

(RICH)>> IT GOES THROUGH THE SHIFTING OPERATIONS AND MAKES SURE THE COMPONENTS ARE HAPPY WITH ONE ANOTHER.

(MIKE)>> AS THE GRAPHICS GO ON THIS FINISHED COPO, ITS OWNER IS DUE HERE IN JUST A FEW MINUTES. FOR RICH, THIS IS THE BEST PART OF THE PROCESS, ALMOST THAT IS.

(RICH)>> ABSOLUTELY THE BEST PART, AND THE ICING ON THE CAKE IS WHEN YOU SEE THEM ON THE DRAG STRIP RUNNING. ( )>> THIS IS YOUR COPO CAMARO. [ crowd clapping ]

(BOB)>> THANK YOU.

(JOE)>> BOB TYLER HAS HIS OWN RACE TEAM, EAGER TO PUT HIS NEW COPO CAMARO INTO COMPETITION. [ engine revving loudly ]

(BOB)>> THANKS, THANK YOU, APPRECIATE IT! ( )>> GOOD LUCK!

(BOB)>> WE'RE GONNA HAVE A LOT OF FUN WITH THIS.

(MIKE)>> THE CLIMAX OF OUR COPO CAMARO STORY HAPPENS HUNDREDS OF MILES AWAY AT WHERE ELSE BUT A DRAG STRIP. [ engine revving ]

(JOE)>> IT'S SAFE TO SAY THE NEW COPO CAMARO IS A SUCCESSFUL CONTINUANCE OF A LEGACY.

ONE THAT FIRST APPEARED IN 1969 AND LIVES ON TODAY THANKS TO A LIMITED PRODUCTION OF THESE MODERN FACTORY RACE CARS. THROUGH A THIRD PARTY 69 PEOPLE WERE OFFERED A CHANCE

TO SPEND UP TO SIX FIGURES TO GET ONE. WE MET A COUPLE OF THESE NEW OWNERS, BOTH READY TO PUT THEIR CARS INTO STOCK ELIMINATOR COMPETITION. WE EXPERIENCED THE INSIDE LOOK OF THE BUILD OF A COPO ENGINE, AND THE VERY RARE TREAT OF WITNESSING COMPLETE CAR ASSEMBLY. HOW MANY OF OUR BUDDIES CAN BOAST THE PRIVILEGE OF SPINNING A WRENCH ON ONE OF THESE PIECES OF HISTORY. SATISFYING AS ALL THAT WAS, WE COULDN'T WAIT TO SEE A COPO WHERE IT WAS DESIGNED TO WIND UP. [ engine revving ]

(JOE)>> THE WAIT WAS ONLY A FEW DAYS UNTIL THE ANNUAL HOLLEY LS FEST IN KENTUCKY. WE WERE CHECKING OUT THE VARIETY OF CARS POWERED BY LS ENGINES WHEN THIS SHOWED UP ALL THE WAY FROM NORTH CAROLINA.

(DARREN)>> IT'S A LITTLE PIECE OF HISTORY.

IT'S NUMBER SIX, SO I'M PUMPED RIGHT NOW, AND IT'S FAST.

(JOE)>> DARREN WASTED LITTLE TIME PUTTING HIS NEW COPO CAMARO INTO THE STAGING LANES FOR ITS DEBUT QUARTER MILE PASS.

(DARREN)>> WE PULLED IT OUT THERE AND DID A BURNOUT. THE THING WENT STRAIGHT DOWN THE TRACK, NEVER SKIPPED A BEAT, HAD GREAT MANNERS, IT'S FAST. WE WENT A 968 AT 140 MILE AN HOUR AND THE PAINTS

NOT EVEN BARELY DRY. YOU KNOW, IT'S COOL! IT'S AN AMERICAN CAR BUILT BY AMERICAN CRAFTSMEN, AND THEY'RE PROUD OF WHAT THEY'RE DOING AND IT SHOWED IN EVERYTHING THEY'VE DONE, AND THIS CAR IS NUTS,

BOLTS, AND SCREWS RIGHT.

(JOE)>> WELL THE SMILE SAYS IT ALL! WITH SO MUCH GREASE AND OIL ON ENGINES AND DRIVETRAIN PARTS, YOUR HAND TOOLS CAN GET LOADED WITH GRIME THAT PENETRATES RATCHET HEADS AND EVEN GETS EMBEDDED INTO YOUR SOCKETS. TO GET THEM CLEAN AFTER EACH USE, WIPE DOWN THE SURFACES WITH SOME WD 40 TO REMOVE THE OILY GRIME. THEN DOWSE THE RATCHET HEADS TO BLAST OUT ANY GRIT FROM INSIDE THE MECHANISM. WD 40 MULTI USE PRODUCT WILL PENETRATE, BLOW OUT THE GRIT, AND LEAVE A FILM OF PROTECTION INSIDE THAT

LUBRICATES THE GEAR TEETH. SOCKETS NEED THE SAME TREATMENT. THE SMART STRAW LETS YOU REACH DEEP INSIDE EVEN SMALL SOCKETS AND BLAST OUT OILY DIRT IN DEEP WELL SOCKETS YOU CAN'T OTHERWISE GET TO. WHEN YOU'RE WORKING WITH HAND TOOLS, ESPECIALLY FOR INTERNAL ENGINE WORK, IMMACULATE TOOLS ARE A MUST.

(MIKE)>> DO YOU WANT TO GET RID OF THAT HEAVY CLUTCH PEDAL EFFORT IN YOUR FOX BODY MUSTANG? WELL NOW YOU CAN WITH AMERICAN POWERTRAIN'S NEW HYDRAMAX RELEASE BEARING CONVERSION KIT. NOW IT COMES WITH THIS UNIQUE CANTILEVER BRACKET THAT MOUNTS TO YOUR FIREWALL AND THE SWING ARM HOOKS TO

YOUR PEDAL PIVOT, GIVING YOU AN IDEAL SIX TO ONE PEDAL RATIO. OUT BACK IS A WILWOOD MASTER CYLINDER THAT WORKS WELL WITH THEIR HYDRAMAX RELEASE BEARING. NOW THE KIT COMES WITH ALL THE LINES AND FITTINGS YOU NEED. THE COST, $599 BUCKS.

(JOHN)>> WHETHER IT'S YOUR HOT ROD, MOTORCYCLE, OR YOUR ATV, YOU CAN EXTEND THE LIFE OF ITS BATTERY AND YOUR INVESTMENT WITH ONE OF THESE FULLY AUTOMATED CHARGER

MAINTAINERS FROM SCHUMACHER. EACH IS MICRO PROCESSOR CONTROLLED FOR EIGHT STAGES OF PRECISION CHARGING, LIKE THIS ONE AMP SP TWO HERE. IT'S FULLY WEATHERPROOF AGAINST MOISTURE AND SHOP DEBRIS. AND IT COMES WITH THIS REAL HANDY 20 FOOT

QUICK CONNECT CORD. NOW THE HEAVY DUTY SP THREE IS A THREE AMP UNIT WITH AN ANIMATED DISPLAY SCREEN AND A HANDY DANDY HOOK. THEY'RE BOTH AVAILABLE ONLINE AND AT MANY AUTO PARTS OR SPORTING GOOD STORES.

(MIKE)>> GUARANTEED, WHEN YOU WASH YOUR CAR AND LET IT AIR DRY, YOU'RE GONNA HAVE WATER SPOTS ON YOUR GLASS. WELL NOW YOU CAN GET THEM OFF THE EASY WAY, WITH MOTHERS' NEW WATER SPOT REMOVER FOR GLASS. THIS STUFF CONTAINS POWERFUL MINERAL DISSOLVING AGENTS THAT'LL HELP YOU GET RID OF SUN BAKED SEDIMENTS, TREE SAP, BUGS, EVEN PAINT OVERSPRAY. JUST MESSAGE IT THOROUGHLY IN SMALL SECTIONS WITH LIGHT PRESSURE AND BUFF IT AWAY. IT WORKS ON ALL GLASS AND MIRRORS, AND YOU CAN

FIND IT AT YOUR LOCAL AUTO PART STORES. WELL THAT'S IT FOR THIS WEEK'S HORSEPOWER. MAKE SURE YOU CHECK IN TO SEE WHAT WE'LL BE DOING NEXT

WEEK CAUSE WE EXPECT TO SEE YOU THEN.
