The rocker panels are sloped up on the stock car, and closer to level on the modded car, so I think you are correct that the 'B' pillar is the new high point -- which helps the curve a lot I think? It hopefully has lots of side taper, too? The 600 is a narrow and small car, so the side taper might help the air close in cleanly?

The wheels are tiny -- 10-12" if I recall correctly, and they may have redone the gearing, too.

Hey -- they seem to have lengthened the wheelbase? The front wheels look farther forward.... and the windshield is slightly more raked, and it has a lot more curve to it. The sides curve back more to the 'A' pillars.
Sincerely, Neil
