    The vauxhall may not be a gasser but it sure is cool.

    "Gasser" is getting to be one of the most
    overuesd and mis-used terms ever here
    on the HAMB. A "gasser" is an actual
    'gas-class' competition car... either an
    original survivor or at least, a 'true to life'
    replication of an actual gas class competition
    car. Not to dis any of the cars posted so far
    or the work that went into them, but not one
    of them is an actual gasser. Street freaks,
    hot-rods or whatever you want to call them,
    but merely jacking a car sky-high and sticking
    leaf springs and a straight axle under the front
    end does not make a car into a 'gasser'.

    Thank you...I really do have to agree with this...Also, perchance are any of these photoshop gassers? People love to post pics....
     
  18. This is a 70's Street Freak, not a Gasser style car at all. The original Gasser stance was for weight transfer. This stance was done merely for "shock and awe".
     
  19. I've seen this car and talked to it's owner at Mooneyes open house last Summer. A VERY nicely built car, and it runs really good too

    So only ORGINAL purpose built race cars can have the name GASSER?


    In 1964, the basic rules for Gassers were unchanged from 1963. As many of the rules were changed in 1962 and the Gassers were now much less “dual-purpose” street & strip machines than had been required prior to 1962. The bodies were required to be “a coupe or sedan body originally produced by an American automobile manufacturer”, with the following exception “There are at present a few foreign coupe and sedan bodied cars that, in general characteristics, better meet the requirements of Gas Coupes/Sedans class better than sports car class. Provided these car bodies and cars do meet all other class requirements – wheelbase, etc. – these cars are classed according to cubic-inch displacement to weight under this section.” As in 62 and 63, the Anglia was restricted to small-block, unblown engines only.
    Moderate customizing was permitted, but the total height of the body still couldn’t be reduced more than 4”. Fiberglass fenders, hoods, doors, and trunk lids were allowed, but their use required the addition of a roll bar which was otherwise only required in the supercharged classes, A/G, and all convertibles or customized classes. Yes, convertibles were permitted in the Gasser classes, but had to run with the top up.
    The rules also required the seats to be in the stock location, but they were permitted to be relocated no more that 4” rearward to allow additional legroom. The other interior rules were subject to a lot of interpretation. The rules for “Upholstery” read as follows: “Interiors may not be gutted. Must run full upholstery, equivalent to factory specifications. Floor mats optional. Bucket seats may replace stock seats (two required), only if they are fully upholstered. Rear seats are optional. Factory type upholstery and/or paneling must be used in lieu of the above.”

    The class breakdowns were according to the following tables.
    Supercharged classes:
    <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="border: medium none ; width: 6in; border-collapse: collapse;" id="table2" border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="576"><tbody><tr> <td style="border: 1pt solid windowtext; padding: 0in 5.4pt; width: 59.4pt;" valign="top" width="79"> A/GS
    </td> <td style="border-style: solid solid solid none; border-color: windowtext windowtext windowtext -moz-use-text-color; border-width: 1pt 1pt 1pt medium; padding: 0in 5.4pt; width: 383.4pt;" valign="top" width="511"> 6.00 to 8.99 lbs. per cubic inch
    </td> </tr> <tr> <td style="border-style: none solid solid; border-color: -moz-use-text-color windowtext windowtext; border-width: medium 1pt 1pt; padding: 0in 5.4pt; width: 59.4pt;" valign="top" width="79"> B/GS
    </td> <td style="border-style: none solid solid none; border-color: -moz-use-text-color windowtext windowtext -moz-use-text-color; border-width: medium 1pt 1pt medium; padding: 0in 5.4pt; width: 383.4pt;" valign="top" width="511"> 9.00 to 12.59 lbs. per cubic inch
    </td> </tr> <tr> <td style="border-style: none solid solid; border-color: -moz-use-text-color windowtext windowtext; border-width: medium 1pt 1pt; padding: 0in 5.4pt; width: 59.4pt;" valign="top" width="79"> C/GS
    </td> <td style="border-style: none solid solid none; border-color: -moz-use-text-color windowtext windowtext -moz-use-text-color; border-width: medium 1pt 1pt medium; padding: 0in 5.4pt; width: 383.4pt;" valign="top" width="511"> 12.60 or more lbs. per cubic inch
    </td></tr></tbody></table>

    My car would have been a B/GS, so please tell me why its not a gasser? Because I chose to put bigger back tires on it?

  30. What's Gasser about that? In fact, with those big wheels, what's HAMB about it?
