Yea on the tire thing me and a buddy had a '59 belair for a while when i was in highschool. We put some fat dirt track tires on it and radiused the quarters for cleanance. I had dated a gal whose dad was a sign painter so I pulled it up to his shop and he lettered "The Big Meats" over the tires on both sides. It ended up causing us some problems with the local constabulary (what didn't), something about obscenity or the like and we ended up selling the car. We used to say an old sick woman off a bed pan or wouldn't pull the hat off your head. How about ya wanna hook 'em up? I say that to people now days and they look at me like a cow lookin' at a new gate.
