No. And No means No.
I faced the same dilemma with my black 41 Pontiac....needed SOMETHING to separate the black car from the dark ground shadow. I searched around till I found a pair of NOS rocker moldings..much better! Then I thought I wanted flames on my car...I had a buddy do them for me and I liked them! For about 5 minutes.
My vote is for new rocker moldings, no flames and a quality set of knock-offs for those wheels.
Not for a hot rod. If it were a tail dragger and they were functional then yes but not for a hot rod. I do think dumps would look cool on your car if you were running a V8. I know I'll probably get flamed for saying this but I love to see old school low buck dumps, (a big piece of black pipe with a cap screwed on the end) on a real hot rod. There's just something beautiful about the utilitarianism of it.
On this car a big NO!!!
Very cool coupe.. No lake pipes but I would lower it some(more in the front),and put some steelies on it.. Even if you don't, it's still a cool ride......
I've dropped it 3 inches in the rear and about 4 in the front. I'm at the limits of the stock suspension. I'll be doing a stub on the front when I do the V8 so I can get it in the weeds. The back will get some kind of treatment to get rid of the blocks, maybe a triangulated 4 link but for now, I'm gonna drive her till she breaks. I had the steelies on it but they are too narrow for my taste. I'll be adding some kind of centercap as soon as I find something I like.
They dont fit the style of that car at all, a set of dump tubes would be right at home though.
Your car looks very nice without lakepipes. Keep it as is.
No No No, would not look near as good as it does now. When you throw out that six let me know.
42 posts for NO.
Now, how're ya gonna argue with that?
I think no as well. It looks great as it is. But it's your ride.
Now if you had a big ol Hemi under the hood and some big black side pipes....

That's no in 25 languages/dialects.
Or maybe this route.
Dump tube on a six?????
No lake pipes! If you want to drive it and not be annoyed after a few thousand miles, just keep a nice exhaust under the car, not to mention the engine will run better with exhaust.
