        You have to explain to the clone car guy who insists his 71 Swinger with bumblebee stripe and worked 360 is factory original, including the paint that " that isn't the original paint on your car, MOPAR didn't paint the dash and tops of the interior doors sublime green (body color)...:lol:

          You might be an A body owner if:

                  if you think the best place to jack up a car is your home made frame connectors

                  or...one of my favorites...if you use the fill valves for you air shocks to mount your license plate
