    Dude, lighten up a little. After reading the 1st post on this thread, the Pontiac fits. Let's see some pics of that blower motor in progress you have going on.

    By the way, if anyone wants to start a tri5 stock car thread I’d be okay with that.

    57Dude, you know I love your car. But I always wonder what it would look like with some giant meats like these in the back. Not your style? What size tires do you have on there now?

    Man, I like that white 57 sedan with 5 spikes! Anybody out there know what the specs are that one,? Maybe an interior pic or two.

    Im not a fan of the "fake spokes" on some cars, but Probably the same thing I think all the time. I can't afford real magnesium spindle mounts. Or vintage magnesium anyting. Any thing "real" vintage skinny or wide wheels or any cool "real" vintage speed parts because people hoard them. Just saying. They were made to be on a car not in a museum, collection, on a shelf or an investment... LOL. But Can't we just be happy if a car has fake spindle mounts and not drag Star wheels? confused. More pics

    I know, I was being half funny. As much as I have seen pics of the outside I wouldn’t mind seeing more of the car.

  25. First of all, you don't want spindle mount anything on a Gasser...real or fake. Front brakes were required on gassers in 99% of the years and classes. If you look at the Altered thread here on the HAMB, you will see plenty of spindle mounts...12 spoke and no brakes. Front brakes were not required on Altered, again in 99% of the cases.
    That being said, there are plenty of vintage looking wheels that are available for no more money than those "things". A good guide would be the Southeast Gassers rulebook..... https://southeastgassers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Sega-2018-A-Gas-Rules.pdf, page 18 here. It shows what's allowed and what's not. They want their cars to look like they would have no later than 1967.
    I would think that anyone building a "gasser" would want it to be period correct.. Unless , of course, all they really want is the latest incarnation of the Street Freak. (i.e. Facebook Gassers):eek:

    The biggest problem that I have with the fake spokes is just because people bolt them on the car people think it's automatically a gasser. Other than that, I don't mind them. More pics and one of Doug's 57. 5.jpeg ResizedImage951388316760489.jpeg [​IMG]
