That thing looks sick! love the 4 x2's on it too!
What ya see is the way it rides,front 3" Fatman drop spindles and 1 coil cut,back 3" blks and reversed eye Posie leafs
Too much rake will put you in the WOODS
Best looking '47 (?) Plymouth 4dr I've ever seen. The rake does wonders for attitude.
I love this thread..... Pardon the Wheels....
Nice car, just sits wrong according to me, take off skirts, or lower back more than front.
West Coast Spoke person here. sorry, no filter..
mine has a slight lean to the back. What's that called? Not drastic enough to be a tail dragger for sure. I'm east coast .
My '57 Custom is close to being finished after 10+ years. I'm still fiddling with the ride height as I ended up with the wrong front springs in it. I asked Moose to Photoshop/finish it up for me with the rake (it's currently level even though I've got 2 1/2 dropped spindles on it). I also asked him to add some ghost flames in Purple. I'm not sure about the flames, but I definetly like the rake. So, other than the flames and the rake, this is how my car is to date.
Way Cool.....The car and Moose's work....Stance is (almost) everything but paint can make or break it. Thanks for sharing it......
My Camino has a slight rake.
It's called 'just how you like it'.
California rake in West Texas
Pardon me if this is a redundant post, but years ago, we thought that the rake was originally used on some drag cars so it was easier to lean over the fender to get at the engine.
How about a Connecticut rake, circa 1987.
California Rake in Texas!!
How could anyone not like the California Rake look..
Here's a nice illustration of what we're talking about. For me, an inch or two doesn't make a rake. If you're going to do it...DO IT! This is still Mild, but it shows a nice contrast.....
Oh man is that sweet! Check out the little rod across the street too.
Finally someone brings the thread back on track! Thank you!
Worth re-posting from the OP's first post.
My '59 with a mild rake.
Perfect? (almost)....I see you're from Alex. Car Guys from Herman would laugh you out of town for still having rear Fender antennas...... You were SO CLOSE!
my 67 cutlass. crappy pic. nice rake.
Thank you...it's a "rake" not a " st--ce"...I dislike that word and won't say it.
Thanks, the antennas are only on the car until I can shave them along with a few other items and reshoot the car.
