  1. See, I think my 55 was 3000lbs.
    Big weight advantage.

    It’ll probably be a little while till I have it rolling on it’s own suspension. I’ve got some things to figure out with the setup. Not going to be a gasser..

    I just did a Ron Pope kit on my 56.... it's all the Speedway stuff with his stronger front axle and a lot of other bits not in the Speedway kit. RPMs axles are way beefier then the Speedway one, although many, many racers run the speedway axle and I have never heard of a problem with them.

    @R. Seghi such a cool car.

    I don't remember if this was mentioned but is there a pearl on the orange? The pic with the flash had me curious.

    We have talked about this before. I grew up and lived in Lincoln Park for my first 63 years, and now I live in Romulus. My Mom's side of the family was from Troy, Royal Oak, and Berkley, so I was out your way quite a bit.

  24. Yes thank you Groucho. We did pick out the color walking through the pits at a Hot Rod Reunion awhile back. Post #66 on page 3 talks about that day.
