    Tingler. You have to do a shirt of your '70's Fairlane straight axle or a print. KNUX!
  4. I'm not a fan of Cragars (or any chrome spoke wheel), but I like the look, especially the radiused wheelwells. But then again, I'm biased.:)

    Those are Keystone Classics! A true child of the 70s would never call Keystones Cragars or vice versa. Blasphemy I tell ya! Blasphemy!

    You were missing a couple of key elements for offical 70's Street Freak status.

    If you want the '70's look you need a CB antenna and a prismatic Keep On Truckin' bumper sticker. ;)

    Tingler-- i love it. and i think it most states its legal to drive that baby drinking a beer, as long as you're smoking at the same time, have long greasy hair and are listening to the right 70's rock!

    that baby makes me want to do a long hesher burnout right now. yeah!

    hahaha...i was just thinking about this the other day- of when a 70's styled rod would come to the HAMB...i think it has been building with several of you on here....

    hey, i think it looks great...not everything out of the 70's was a camaro with traction bars, butt in the air, and shag carpet on the dash

    it's hard to make a good body style with a gasser stance look bad

    glad you finally came to your senses, and did that car the way it should be done. Cragars or Keystones would be period correct. I can even remember having a set of 15x4 Keystones. Tore the centers out of a set of 15x10's once when the slicks finally got good bite. The only thing you have to do now is back up the look with the muscle under the hood. You captured the look perfectly.
  26. speaking of aluminum slot wheels...anyone seen any lately? I bought a pair of 15"x10" to fit my '74 camaro back in was a true 70s car, came from louisiana, had air shocks and a trailer

    Tingler, man...I'm diggin' that car, seriously. In the less affluent parts of the country (read that ARKANSAS) cragar s/s wheels were still in vogue in the 90's...keystones too...the REAL country boys still run cragars...:D

    Still wish I could've met up with y'all when I was livin' in Campbell county. An officer from your little community didn't like the fact that I had driven the Chieftain all the way from Ft Smith to Monterrey with NO TAG..had to park it overnight at that lil station with the car wash just off!

    Car's lookin' good man!

    Cheer up, get inspired :D

    the 70s trend of a hacked up wheel well just to get that L-60-15 tire under the back never apealed to me.there were alot of otherwise nice cars ruined back then ,and better than half couldnt even turn that monster tire .
