    Falcons, like Novas, have a certain cool factor. I want to keep this thread alive even though I've
    run out of gasser-style pics. Hopefully, Deuces, who started this, won't mind me adding these. If a moderator feels the need to delete them because of the wheels, so be it. The red one was shot at Great Lakes Dragaway about 1987, the white at Cordova in 2000, I believe. Keep smiling.

  3. Mines not a gasser...heading for a Modified Production / hot little stop light car. Rims and tires will be gone and a set of M&H “muscle car” tires and some pro tracs up front, chrome reverse wheels out back and 4.5 inch Americans up front, may paint them to look magnesium. Always loved these cars

    Not trying to defend Mak Yak but I can see his point one thing is that over time what starts out as innovation for a purpose becomes a a trendy fashion and the original meaning gets lost...if you look at the old school pics not one of them is running a tire wider than 9-10" why? because that's what they had! so they sacrificed handling in the name of weight transfer...so why are all the guys building nosebleeders now running fat slicks? do you really want your car to be scary and go slower than it actually could? I guess so...... either that or it's just for looks:p if you want a fast car use slicks and six banger coils if you want a period build run 9" pie crusts and a straight axle...
