We got our slicks, here are a few more pics.
Getting that Buick chrome fitted and mounted.
Now that is different! When I first radiused my wheelwells I had my uncle tell me that I should have just went and bought a buick! lololol
I have to say that is one (if not the best) treatment I have ever seen done to a radius wheelwell car!! cudos!!!
Another one for you 55 gasser fans
We got our new front-end, it came from "Scott's Hotrods", it is a nice piece and I was told they have the molds from AI Fiberglass.
Not an owner but here are some pics for you.....
A nice one from New Zealand.....
This is another shot of the Butch Thuney 55.
Wow. Thank you for the compliment! I wish I saw this when it was posted back in December.
This is one of my favorite pics of my '55 (now with reversed wheels).
Here's a more updated picture with the reversed wheels and Caltrac bars. I'm not crazy about the looks of the Caltrac bars on the car but they sure do work.
Heres some more of my 55 I just got er runnin again after sittin for a while..
This is a short video of 55 running, forgive the crappy cell phone video.

That is a pretty stout motor in the 55...
one of the guys that race with us, big block set way under the dash
Is that Steve???
can you send a link for the front clip?
If you mean Steve Tanzela, it's not. Steve's motor is pretty much in the stock location/stock firewall. If you didn't mean Steve T, my apology.
Makes it easy to advance the timing while sitting in the drivers seat.
More progress on Lonnie's 55,fuel tank and front end mounted, and that lovely Buick chrome installed.
I dont see how a BBC would fit under the dash, I had trouble squeezing a SBC in there! I got a little door on the firewall I can access the Dizzy through to adjust the timing.
Heres the inside of the firewall.
I need a set of stock wheel opening cut outs from a radius job. If any of you guys have a set message me. Thanks
Some of the Southerngassers members cars.
More of the Wompin Wagon with some pictures of it as it runs now.
Now that's the proper use of a Nomad.
