    Thanks for sharing this article. You're right, that is a incredibly cool car. I read the article as well, it just makes me grin, wanting more! I would really like to know what he did next to improve it!
     
  3. One of the coolest cars of the 50s IMHO.

    When you're ahead of your time,it takes awhile for the parts people to catch up with you.

    Hacking off the tops of Strombergs today would be considered a cardinal sin,
    not that I know what that is or why a red bird has a sin named after him but,
    I wonder if that was for hood clearance, and then we see pictures of a car with no hood???


    wtfinch?

    I'd drool all over it because i want to prove that old tech is as good as new exept that parts were less plentiful(cams, valve springs, ect.....)

    As for the stromberg tops, they are one of the worst flowing parts of those carbs and he couldnt pull enough air so they simply cut them off....

    He is said to be a genius, and he used disc brakes. Maybe I'm not so dumb (untraditional) after all?
