Nearly there Robert,great looking 55 mate...
Thx Kiwi, it's slow but happening.
Ordered my wheels today from Stockton Wheel. Think chrome reverse. Motor is running on the test stand. Going in the car with the trans soon. Need to finish wiring, plumb the brakes, dial it all in and go. Trying to make it to the next Hot Rod Reunion.
^^^^^ 5 week's away plus a few day's thrown in for good measure. October is Trick or Treat Month.
I know Johnny but I'm going to try. Can't guarantee anything but I have some friends helping,
My wheels came in, finally.
Yes, Stockton Wheel is backed up 2 months for chrome.
The wheels are perfect. What size slicks?
Good to see this is back on
The wheels are 15x8 and I'm going to use a 10" wide cheater slick. I'm thinking Radir rather then Hurst.
Holy cow those wheels look good.
Last I checked Hurst was shut down,so Radir and Towel City would be your two choices.
Man,that car is going to be somethin'!
Radir makes a new tire. Retreads would never go under my quarters. Just my .02.
Yeah after that wheel spacer broke all 5 lug studs that started this whole calamity (ask Groucho, he saw it all) I'll never use any retreads, spacers or anything that can come off. Because usually it will.
Seriously? A 1" wheel spacer broke the studs? Looks like I won't be running them
This thing has an ominous amount of power for a street car so it will pull the tread right off of retreads.

Yes, it was loose just abit and I didn't notice it and it broke all 5 studs at 40MPH.
Fun ride but did a lot of damage.
I went with Radirs 10x15 on my gasser for 2 years still very happy

What's your point?Not every car gets built in 23 minutes like on tv.
Yeah I couldn't figure that out...

This is why I don't even have a post for my Nomad. Don't need to listen to everybody whine.
