    Some folks hate 'em, others love 'em. Me, I like 'em, sort of how I like my cousin Liz. Not enough to marry, but don't call her bad names in front of me. They're literally the least possible amount of car with as much engine as possible crammed in it, and damn the practicality, it's a Hot Rod, not a grocery getter!

    They are cool ass and most guys don't have the guts to drive them.
    Kind of like a pink linen shirt.

    Ma to Indy looks like 950 miles, in that crazy little car, in 1962. That rules!

    Norm-grabowski-1922-ford.jpg 800px-Norm-grabowski-lightning-bug2.jpg Norm-grabowski-1922-ford4.jpg cupofT.jpg I have a question about this front end setup where you flip the sawed off bones backwards as spring hangers. I've studied every picture I can find of Grabowski's, Ivo's, Von Francos, and now this car and still can't tell if the pieces of bone are simply bolted to the axle or welded on. It seems like if they were just bolted they could move in and out slightly as the shackles compressed. I would really like to do this on my car since I have a similar V8-60 setup. Can anyone with personal experience or access to any of these cars answer this for me? There's a line in the first Spotlite Chassis booklet that says just saw the hangers off the bones and bolt them on backwards. It doesn't seem like it would be this simple. But maybe it is...
