    some cars look like they're flying when they're standing still.. this one looks like it's midway through a serious launch.. I love it!

    That car takes the (forgive me) "rat rod" aesthetic and makes it cool. I love the detailing.

    Just alittle info on the discs....
    They are actually 1935 Packard wire wheel covers used to protect your wires from the dirt and snow. I still have to get the hubcap centers. They are not cheap at all, but will finish off the wheel

    Oh and for all the guys who dont like the stance, its changed. I got bigs and littles. The car is staying level, might have a few degrees forward, but nothing crazy like in the pics. I like my car's body line to be flat. Thanks for all the great comments guys. Im gonna go sand on it some more. I have changed chrome guys so thats gonna be awhile now. Thanks again and Ill keep you updated.

    Ed-U-ma-cate me on those crazy carbs....

    I dig the look.

    Stromberg back draft?

    What is the bolt pattern?

    What did they come on?

    Are they expensive, hard to find?

    Thanks,
    Rich

    Stromberg WW with a Backdraft top. Came on Studebakers 53-55 to clear the low hood line. square 4 bolt pattern

    I want to know about the air cleaners. I have a stack of those carbs for a
    log manifold I am building for my Stude motor and really like those air cleaners.
