For the amount of effort expended to hillbilly-up that R/T, I'd prefer he instead respected the car and IMPROVED its condition.

Tried watching that show for a while. Cannot stand the main guy (and personally don't like their stuff either)

Could be worse....if Richard Rawlings did it, it would have a LS motor with sidepipes, and air ride suspension with him doing his "WOOO" girl impression wearing girls jeans and all of his jewelery.

Drive it down the Vegas strip and see if you can lure out the guy that wears a shirt sleeve on his forehead to hide his receeding hairline.

I like a lot of stuff they build... like road kill vehicles, after doing body work/paint for years, the idea of not having to make stuff look perfect sure is appealing.

Do remember anything like that in the 70s, maybe the shackles but that’s about it.

Snow tires are a softer compound and were poor mans racing slick in the day. Are those snow tire on the rear?

Other than the color of the wheels, it looks like the street cruisers that I saw on the Avenue back in the day! My 70 Charger R/T SE, was jacked up with Gabriel Hi jacker air shocks,shackles, Cragars and N-50-15 tires on the back. It was a yellow car,that I sprayed flat black with spray cans,with a gold tail stripe, and had "Back in Black" with lighting bolts hand painted on the back edge of the trunk lid.

Slicks and cheater slicks from back in the fifties and sixties had the ribbed sidewall like that.
