What times does she run?
leaf or coils on the back?
Here's a shot from a few years ago.
Leaf springs and turned 11:00 end of last year. Hope to get some 10:70s this year
Car is awesome. I hope to run 12.70 in mine. Tell us more about those ladder bars? assume heims at axle and slider up front. Did you make or buy that slider?
Hemi joints on the rear, sliders up front. Bought the sliders from speedway motors from there race car catalog. Car hooks up perfect and goes straight. I made them long to copy the old days. Sliders were the heavy duty ones with the ball bearings. This is a picture of the all steel willys pick-up I'm building now. I'll be using the same set-up on it. I put a 331 hemi in it. It will be gasser style but for the street.
Sliders on the front of the springs or ladder bars?
Front of ladder bars are hooked into the sliders.
Hell of a life you lead there DOC. Flathead roadster, neat old house with POOL, and now you let us in on all the other great cars you are hoarding.
I have had a great life, great wife,family and friends. I'm 66 and still in good health and able to work 6 days a week at my business. I thank the good Lord everyday!
Line lock history...it was talked about a while back.
Cool article, Kip! Thanks for posting it! Gary
Bumpity Bump, Where are all the gasser Guys and Coments! Gary
Trying to get my cruiser / tow rig running for summer cruising.
Sent from my C811 4G using H.A.M.B. mobile app
Busy building Gassers like me maybe
Maybe they are getting ready for Greer SC This Saturday for the Southeast Gasser opener
Doing yard work. Ughh!
That all sounds Good (except the yard work), but that last post was on march 21. By me! Lets keep this alive! Gary
Thrashing daily to get my 39 wannabe somewhat complete for at least cruising.
Working Running Boards, and door glass channel this weekend.
Pic is last Sunday, hit a show for 3 hours.
Hanging on the Meltdown Drags Thread....thrashing on the Austin. She is up, running and driving. Breaking in the Clutch below at the local high school parking lot Sunday afternoon. Halfway there: 100 laps, 200 stop and goes and just over 600 clutch depressions and more self control than you can imagine!!!!
Break in? Run it like hell! If something breaks you didn't do it right.
Mine is loaded up and headed south. Im moving from MD to FL
Have a safe trip. Gone south for good??
The Old Gasser dude has been down for the count for 2 months now, done broke my back just gitte'n out of bed now it is learning how to walk again
Hoping to be free of the walker in about 2 weeks or so, been quite the deal so all of used guys count your blessings each and every day the shinny side is up as the heavy duty sheet time really sucks
What is really cool is that they ' Hot Stuffed Glued ' my back together, it is instant and no pain and I have built 6 gliders using that kind of glue ' pretty trick '
After being away I need to read up and see how your gassers are coming along
Don, Great talking to you the other day! Keep up on the rehab and the push starting XR'S will come LOL. Gary
Don, sorry to hear, but glad you're on the mend.
