Projects New Look to my Coupe

Discussion in 'Traditional Hot Rods' started by englishrodder, May 16, 2014.

  1. Well, i needed to cure an out of round tire so while I was at it i also changed the wheels and all the tires.... added some badger scoops and voila a new look to the coupe [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Im keeping the old wheels and will change the bad tire, that way ive got two cars on one.

    Its good that slicks are legal here in CO, and we get next to no rain (Unlike the 39 years I spend in UK!)

    Im loving the new look, its re-energized me into the coupe as ive been using the roadster most of the time recently!

    Anyway, here it is



    VS Old look.... (From when in UK)

    Not a fan of slicks on the street but that looks great that way. It doesn't rain much here in the middle of Wa state either but I have spun out once with the 48 running bias N-50's on the back and hitting standing water on the freeway.

    WOW! I think you did good... REALLY good.

    And slicks? I think they are PERFECT for the street. :)

    Such a kick ass car. I didn't think it could get any better but I do like the changes... A Lot! Here's another shot of the engine pre-changes.

    Makes me want to lick the screen!
