This was a last minute. You know Johnny reached out to me and said, Hey, what are you doing? I said I'm trying to figure out what this week's podcast is going to be about and he saved the day. So we're going to talk more bars and have a good time. So Johnny from what I understand, you have some trivia for me. I do kick it off in talks privy there. All right. We'll drop some knowledge on these folks. So my Buddy John Jones right the guy that I got. A general mayhem from. the guy that's painted my coronet. He's gotTa pay my seventy two charger that I didn't want Anyway good buddy. He's a he's a body and paint guy awesome. fabricator he's had the. Privilege of working on super birds and Daytonas. Before the fact, John's one of those kind of guys that can just build shit on his own right he doesn't need to buy the parts and he won't. He won't spend the money. He'll build his own nose weighing and everything. ANYWAYS buddy. His had a super that he restored. He painted and he took like like, I guess, like a Stencil of all of the panels so that he can remake them. You know. So like blade paper over the nose, let's say stenciled it. So he has the right dimension so he could cut his own sheet metal and make his own nosecone, make his own weighing all the brackets and stuff like that. He's got all that stuff. But anyway, one of the cool things he told me that I never knew. Case. So you know a seventy super bird. The nose on that car, the fenders on that A. Probably know this seventy. Cornet morning yeah, right. There Dodge coronet fenders on there. So if you were to follow the top edge of the fender as it gets to where the chrome bumper is the very top of the fender Kinda dips down to where it flows into the the bumper, the Bumblebee. bumper wraparound bumpers on each grill. Of A seven hundred, I'm talking about the be now of a seven hundred super be. Okay either but I got you I'm sorry. The fact I kind of like drew sketch. So it's not GonNa be good for your guys that are just listening. See me say when he got here. Okay so get my finger. So this is the fender. Right here as it dips down, this is where the bumper would begin on A. B.. But on a super bird, the super bird knows comes off of that fender in the very tip the very top tip of the fender is leaded. They lead it so that it flowed the fender flows into the nose cone. Yeah now if you Own A superbeing you've restored one, you sanded that fender down you probably know that. But if you don't like most of us, most of us don't have a super birds I'm sorry super. Verger You wouldn't know that. I. Never knew that my buddy John told me about that. then. At the. Spring. Fling. Car Show. Here in California it's the biggest mope harsh. Oh, we have out here, which is small compared to the guys you know like in the Mid West but. There was a blue a beautiful blue super bird there and I happen to be looking at this car and I'm looking at that area of the fender to the nose cone and I'll one side of the car. It flowed perfectly like from the fender to the nose cone and on the other side of the car, the tip of the fender like dipped down. Like that fender had been replaced that fender came off of a coronet or super be not original to the Super Bird. So it was like Damn frigging John knows the shit. Yeah I mean I wasn't GonNa pointed out to the owner. is a car was already restored. We'll make yeah and it's so subtle the amount the distance you're talking is
