Mags and Slicks pics....from the CHRR.

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Kiwi Kev, Oct 20, 2010.

  1. I love vintage magnesium wheels and drag slicks! I took a bunch of pics of rear wheels at the California Hot Rod Reunion, it is interesting checking out the different wheel/tire combinations and also the different wheel finishes. This may get repetitive but here goes.....

    Polished Halibrands.....

    Sayin' pics of slicks and mags "may get repetitive" is like sayin' " If you've seen one boob, you've seen them all".

    MORE PLEASE!!!

    this should be tagged as a terrific reference thread for I.D.ing purposes.
    Many young guys need to study this, as these are the "holy grails" of drag racing....

    good thinking, Kev :)

    Absolutely killer thread. Repetitive? Nah, there's no such thing as too much wheel porn.
