I know if I had to choose any muscle car that is first choice or the Hemi Cuda since they are pretty much the same, second would be a 69 mustang fastback, then a Older style with the round headlight lights.

I really am sooooo jeleous of you!:icon_surprised:

I saw that episode,it was great.Can't say I'm a fan of the wheels and tires but to each his own.

I used to be a mopar fanatic and let 2 cars get away that I wished I had now.Challengers and Cudas ruled the street back in the day.

Thanks ya'll, of course I've driven it. However, it's Dad's car and I prefer to ride in my own (the yellow 'Cuda). Just not the same driving someone elses car. But the keys are mine at will, (hell i got the thing built for him lol)

I've got a question about the paint.

Hows it been holding up? Has it shown any imperfections over time? I used to sell and use the same paint as Chip uses. One thing I learned about BASF Diamont, it doesn't like to be pushed to the limits, which is exactly what they're doing by getting those cars done so fast. The last body shop I worked at we had a lot of problems with the primer shrinking and showing sand scratches after a while because we'd hammer 'em out so quick...the guys on Overhaulin' are hammering them out even faster than we were.

Its a badass car and looks really good! I just always wondered because I have a lot of experience with that paint system.
