Bumpers matter to race car and show car builders. At Mick's Paint in California, a 1970 Plymouth GTX had its factory bumpers replaced with lightweight carbon units weighing just 3 pounds, compared to 24 pounds for the original rear bumper and 28 pounds for the front. This resulted in a weight saving of 60 pounds, which is significant to those who care about performance.
Jeff Pont's 1969 Chevy Camaro had its bumpers customised to fit better than the factory versions. Bob Florine's 1957 Ford Del Rio Ranch Wagon, a Pure Vision/Mick's Paint collaboration, was designed for speed and has won numerous awards. The House of Muscle explores the passion and dedication of these car enthusiasts.
