Absolutely bitchen car! It's straight outa my dreams and onto my computer screen.
That is one cool ride!! How about some race lettering to avoid the paint deal. I just love vintage lettered race cars but looks great as is.
That mop of blond hair barely visable over the roofline is the top of my head. I was trying to steal the left tail light, but Sam and his pals kept pushing the car away from me.
Jim, the car looks more bitchin' than ever with the new wheel combo, and a 9.77 pass, Hoo Doggies!
You guys are kidding me how could you try to tell him what to do with his car i am pretty sure that he knows what he is doing if you have a better car than lets see some pics to back up your bench racing talk
What can I say? It's HOT. And, I love it.
I just watched your "Pass Time" run.
Very cool. Think I'll go fire up my mopar now and leave a little rubber in front of the neighbors house!
thats one mean lookin mofo.
Nothin' says race car better than magnesium....
My comment was based on what looks like the bead laying down on the rim. I know the photo could be giving a distorted view, or my eyes are much worse than I thought..
Still a Bitchin Car.
I ran into Sam and Mike in the lanes while Sam was pushing Jims awsome 55. I never did actually get to meet Jim but did get to ogle his car. For me it was great to see a car that not only looked the part but "ran" the part as well.
As for the tire wrinkling Jim is right that is what they do. I offer this pic as a comparison example.
I can't stop looking at the rear quarter panel/wheelwell/tire /wheel combination. I've literally looked at thousands of '55's over the last 50 years and now "there's a new sheriff in town"
1 b m f !
Your 55 has given me and other a lot of inspration. I love WHEEL STANDS!!
Here's an interior shot:
I also swapped out the modern fabricated valve covers with some old Mickey Thompsons. I had to run a spacer to clear the stud girdle:
Looking good and i like the those valve covers.
That is flat out "BAD ASSSSSSSS"
