    Hi gang. Grew up in the '60s and '70s in the Bay Area of California (when everything had black plates). Started reading Rod&Custom in 1971 when I was 9 and saw it on the mag-rack at the supermarket. (Still have that issue with Jim Jacobs' Niekamp car on the cover). Built Monogram rod kits because I loved the whitewall slicks on such classics as the "Blue Beetle." Recently bought a CA black-plate '55 Delray '70s street machine (327, solids, M-21, '67 Camaro buckets) and it is undergoing a "slight" makeover into a early '60s SoCal street/gasser. Think: 30-inch blackwall Hurst slicks, Silvertown skinnies, original Torq-Thrusts from the '60s, no front bumper. (Hurst slicks are just like the old Monogram model slicks!) Also have a '67 396 Camaro, CA black plates, stock.

    Hope to learn a lot here!

    -Bill

    Thanks for posting the pics Brad!

    It was 55xgasr's orange '55 that blew my mind when I first saw it at a Goodguy's show back in about 2003. I just about lost it when I laid eyes on that car and I wanted a '55 ever since. He and I will perform the "cut" soon and put the slicks and Torq Thrusts on it and I'll post some pics then. Oh, and the front bumper will come OFF.
