Looks like you have enough power to justify having traction type rear tires. The pie cuts are traditional. I ran a set on my 1956 Plymouth with a...
Sad news. Sure glad the Moonlighter was rebuilt thanks to some kind folks, and Gene got to relive his youth with it. RIP
I ordered a couple cans from a source in Idaho. Should be here later in the week
I have the mind that thinks I am still 40 and the body that is 77. Been out in the shop sanding and welding this morning.

My dad was a foreman at the Keiser ship yard during WWII. I wonder if that was related to the car manufacture?

Happy Birthday to the old fart. Wishing him a great year ahead.

Hope the end of this mess comes soon. Just saw video of the 100 car pile up in Texas. Black ice. Terrible deal.
I didn't know him but did see him on several car/motorcycle related shows. He seemed extremely knowledgeable and full of energy. RIP
