Thanks! Here's mooaarr!!
The American Dream! Well, mine anyways.
Love all the low riders! Does anyone know the best place to get some pin strip white walls for some 14 inch Astros!?
^^^ You have a few choices:
Cocker 5.20 crossplys.
Hankook, Uniroyal, Firestone, and if you are lucky Cornells at Pepboys. I kno they disontinued the 13s, but you might get lucky with the 175/70/14s.
Theres others but these are the nicest IMO.
Other than Cornells the ones with the most squared thread surface are the Firestone FR38.
Google is your friend, best deals are online. ebay helps too.
Dayton makes skinny whites as well but i seem to remember theyre expensive.
Mr. 58 Impala Andy, do you by any chance have another picture of the set up in the Corvair?
Nick I'm still looking for them & will post em up once I find them.

Beautiful paint work throughout this thread. Got to admit the time and attention to detail on most of these car is outstanding. I have to say, my favorites are lowriders from the late 60's early 70's. Cragars and Astros withOUT the mini tires...
Can you call me 1 785 506-6711
Did I say thay where
Nick still looking for the pics you want, found this one & figured you'd enjoy it.
OH! The elusive Adel power packs...beautiful.
This is probably the second or 3rd picture max that ive seen of those units. Never seen a set up, or if i did it was before i knew what i was lookin at
And thanx for lookin for the Corvair "trunk" picture. Too kind.
You posted them in the lowrider thread, where everyone else is posting pictures of lowriders, thats pretty much equivalent to saying you think they are....
Here you go Nick I finally found them! "Backyard Built" by Tony Anderson who even machined the blocks & various other components.
Wow, thanx. Those round blocks are awesome, and so are the matched stands.
Its funny how my dream car is a Corvair and that this set up is basically just like the one i would build for it... Your friend must be an awesome fella
Now, gotta get myself a lathe and step up my game...
Man, I wanna "cut" something so bad
What are these wheels? I have seen them a few times from this period and I kind of dig'em, anyone know?
I belive they were by appliance wheel^^^^
An UK icon. The first car to be juiced in Englad. It was the late 70s. Name of the lad excapes me at the moment. It was Paul something.
Crazy Art painted in the 70s, and still around today, as the modern wires show
