Did you watch the movie "catvch me if You can"?

ie, the pinstripes :D

Those racing behind the spare tire trunk lid where pondering "why is that car ahead of me carrying a spare?", as the A body drove away.
:shock:

That wide of interchangeability might make may reconsider knocking out a few more CF tireless bolt on racing trunk lids.

Is that the movie with Di Caprio and Tom Hanks? I haven't seen it but I'm going to have to now! Got to see what you're talking about.

Yes, it is a very good well made movie. It does NOT have a mopar in the movie as a central prop.
Spoiler alert, the entire premise of the movie is based on the NY Yankees, that their long winning streak is based on that the opposing players focus their attention on the Yankees "pinstripes", rather then the game, and when you watch the movie, you will quickly see how the protagonist applies that to a very successful short life of crime and fraud. Worth watching.
