The vents were only available for one year and one model, the 1971 "Cuda, all other models of that year had just a plain fender with no gills. I am a die hard MOPAR guy, and am glad to see a show dedicated to those cars after watching so many other ones building up Mustangs and Camaros all the time! The way he acts on tv can be annoying to watch, but I have had a couple friends meet him in real life, they said he is a great guy and very helpful...what you see on tv is not what he is actually like! I would love to go down and see the shop in person...that yard of cars is drool worthy!!
I thought I seen an article in another model magazine where they used the louvers from the '71 on a build of the new '70? I am thinking it was Tim Boyd, but I could be wrong....two "Cudas were built....copper and a yellow one.
Dieseldawg142: Watching last nites episode...I had to chuckle after reading your comment about "new Canadians" and chains...the VSA plow truck operator stuck at the snowshed while the "professional" driver attempted to put on the jewelery so that he could get out of the way!! Yup...been there and done that situation on more than one occasion...pretty sad to say that anyone CAN get a license to drive truck....doesn't mean they SHOULD!! Pretty cool to see Jamies step kid helping out on that wreck...hopefully he will continue to go out and get some more experience....he could learn alot from the rest of the crew and become a very good operator!! That flamed Pete tridem was in Merritt for awhile...stationed out of there until they got bought up by Mario's...heard it went east for a bit...that is a cool looking truck, love the tribal flames on it!!!
Seen that...he probably should have waited....Jamie would have showed up and they could have had it up on pavement in no time!! Be interesting to see what the boss thinks about it when he rolls up to the scene.....
Wild colors and big old HEMI motors....throw in a Six Pack or two...how about a nose and a huge wing? Nope...we like to be different...stand out from the crowd and get banned from various competitions!! LOL!
This finish panel on the back was only available on the Coronet 500 and RT, the base Coronet and Super Bee only had the Dodge lettering and some chrome trim...there was some blackout treatment done that went around the outside of the tail lights, but the center was body color. The Blue `68 that Snake posted shows what I am talking about.
