There is NO NASCAR truck with those scoops on the front bumper. But anyway, dead horse. The only shot I see of the bed is when he is talking and it's behind him, at that point it looks pretty good to me.

Speaking of such things, he swore up and down it was an original SD-455 ...
I know there was a prototype SD-455 GTO, but I'm not aware of any making production.
Could you order that engine in anything other than a Firebird?

Yes, and they were mounted on a horizontal surface as they were designed for!

Never mind the debate about the proper orientation of a NACA duct.
Good tips about making a wire form frame.
Good tips about using fleece to form compound curves in a composite structure.
I like the tip about using unwaxed dental floss to pull the fabric in to a reverse crown.
Using the paper clamps to hold the fabric.

I wonder how much money Chip Foose gets from Magnaflow Mufflers, or how much more you have to pay for one, so they can pay Chip?

Yes, it really is an excellent how-to.
