OK - you're up

BTW - you are as good at doing I-net research as I have seen in a long while. You might very well have fitted into my team at work. (That, by the way, is a very High compliment as it took me several years to find the right folks to be team members to get the level of expertise I needed to build a team that got international work and recognition!)
Oh no! That was from memory. I just needed the Prez to link it all togather. Really!

The general plot (of Cannonball) was two guys who travel around the country encountering all sorts of issues, people who needed rescuing, folks in trouble, etc.

A more-or-less direct copy of "Cannonball" featured 2 guys traveling around the country (etc) in a Corvette instead of a GMC.

TV Trivia cites "Cannonball" as the inspiration for "Route 66", which began airing the season following the end of the "Cannonball" series, and I had seen a quote from a director/producer or some such illustrious soul to the effect that he took inspiration directly from.... etc, but now I'll be bleeped if I can find it

This automobile had a specific use. What is ti and what was it. The latter being the important part of the question.

I will go for it just because I can but I was just guessing with the President part being it looks all black.

What is this?

The body side molding looks like a 70s Camaro , but the fender looks like a Datsun 240,260 Z.

Could that moulding be found on a 70's Camaro, yep, but that's not the answer.

It looks like a aftermarket door guard molding (body side moulding). Possibly called a spear.

Come on BB tell me a little more about this aftermarket moulding, some details. Overall use, installation methods, come on now. They were very common in the new and used car industry.

Well you snap a chalk line on the side of the car. The metal portion came in ten foot lengths. You measure the door (s) length subtracting for the end pieces, then the fender and 1/4 panel lengths again subtracting for the end pieces. Cut all your pieces. Line them up on the car with masking tape holding them into position staring with the doors first. Drill em, screw em, install em .End tips held on with screws. If its a cold day you have to soak the vinyl inserts in hot water for pliability and expansion. Press em into the metal strips that you installed on the side (hopefully straight) with a little extra for contraction. Bill the customer. Maybe sell the lot boys a little weed. Move on to the next dealership.
At least thats how "Fast Eddie" use to do it.
