Gotta have rubber rake!
Bigs & Littles……This is a 15 yr in the making PC3-SO-CAL project that has recently found a new home with the Lorenzini’s “Oak Canyon Speed Shop”.
I christened it “Nightfire”. This definitely suits the threads content.
Every one has a look they want. No matter what the horse power or cubic inch I definitely do not like the look of a wide tire/wheel combo on an open wheel
late 20’s early 30’s car. Tall is good if it looks good with the arch of the inner body panel. Truck tires were once the only option you had when moving to an inch or two wider wheels but times have changed. Tubbed cars are a turn off for me but this why there are so many options.
