  5. He must be. That is wrong on so many levels. Right up there with a Rambler wagon "gasser".

    There is a very, very good reason why you have not seen one of these before.

    I saw the Black Bird at Bakersfield, nice car. I don’t remember seeing it go down the track though.
    Those things are uni-body and a mighty stout uni-body at that. It would be like making a Gasser out of a Lincoln.

    I'm a little confused with all this gasser/ poser bullshit. Why would someone build a lookalike drag race car for the street? Can't handle other than straight line, surely not very useful other than short cruises. Why not build a racecar if you want one?

    Among all the other reason why the answer is no....how about this number: 4,300 plus pounds! LOL

    Your money, your choice. Build what you want, we all need a laugh now and then.
    I saw an earlier Bird. 59 model built into a very competitive dirt track car.

  27. I think I see where you're going with this, cycledelicjohn. I think I have a whiff of what you're cooking. Have you considered doing this as a jet car? Of course, you can keep all the "proper" gasser accoutrements, like the straight axel and high stance, but think of the attention that would bring from the HAMB gasser fans.

  28. I was going to ask if a surfboard would be out of place...until I realised, that in the modern idiom, nothing is out of place.
     
  29. Of course it can use a surfboard, X38, it still comes down to whether one places the skeg to the front, or the rear, doesn't it?
