  7. My "Gasser" from 1968. It's a bone stock '57 Opel Kadette I owned while stationed in Germany. GI pay at that time didn't go far enough to buy nice wheels, let alone a hotrod motor/trans. Spacers in the front coils got it up in the air.

    I hung the front tin on mine today and thought it looked complete enough to post. Still a long ways to go.

    You gotta love ladder bars from the front of the car all the way to the rear end.

    Those were the day's and the Colson & Wood gassier is full of drag racing history.

    Wonder how many runs down a 1/4 mile this car has made in it's life?

    Thanks for posting the memories. Jimbo

    Thanks RM. She's a time capsule for sure. The original builder passed away in 2012. He did all the mod's and paint work. He was a pretty creative guy.

    Here's how the car looks today. The graphics are done in rainbow flake. All his handiwork also.

    Looking good. Should look great when it's painted. Nice red.
