    On the back side of the rear wheel well, over the top of the tire. Screwed to the fender lip.

    ^^^^Yes, some Uncle LEO more-than-likely gave the guy a ticket for tires sticking outside of the fenderwells^^^^. Should have just went with some narrower tires on that street freak; there's NO WAY it's a "real Gasser" anyway. Nice mudflaps however! Garners the same sort of attention these light weight, screwed-on-the-trunk-lid "spoilers" do on the tuner cars. I usually comment on their nice "luggage rack"; really p*sses them off for some reason that I don't quite understand. There's even some guy running around town in his Mazda Miata with a luggage rack that extends about two feet out of each side, and is two "wings" one on top of the other, like a bi-plane. Where does all this tasteless cr*p, that really is't functional, come from anyways? I am Butch/56sedandelivery

    ^^^Gotta love the guy leaning in to look at the interior of this green 56 Bel Air 2 door sedan^^^. So many these days just place their hands on the door edge of the open window and lean in; and there's their belt buckle, and whatever's in their pockets messing up all your hard work. THIS, is what's wrong with cruise in-car shows. I have NO IDEA how to take care of it, other than stand beside your car with semi-automatic firearm deterrents in hand. It's like everything else in this "entitlement" society we live in, they're going to do whatever they're going to do. Simply because, they have no clue, and you can thank their parents for that!!! JMO. I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

    Posted by Loudbang, this is a refreshing change. No straight axle, Moon tank
    or injectors. Plain old chrome wheels (not smoothies) and a normal stance. Yeah,
    I realize this is a "gasser" thread but I guess I'm tired of seeing the same basic car
    over and over again. Thanks, LB.

    AND the best thing is it could STILL be a NHRA legal gasser in that trim. But can't see any markings. :)

    It’s kind of refreshing and I’m not a big fan of yellow!

    At least the fakes allow brakes. Safety first.

    The point is that the "real" cars of that era all used wheels that were compatible with brakes as front stoppers were required by the rules (until well past the HAMB cut off date). The 12 spokes were an altered class deal and as such are totally inappropriate for a gasser clone. The other other stuff like overly jacked up cars, fake injector scoops, bogus "Moon" tanks etc are merely excessive interpretations of the style of that era.

    ^^ Is that a real chimpanzee or a knockoff? I don't know, his haircut
    seems a little too perfect. Look at his fingers, they're not very hairy.
    And just when do you think he was born?

    My point is that there are a whole bunch of photos in this thread (and several others like the two Willys threads) that are far from complying with the HAMB guidelines as to vehicle style and appearance. A moderator recently jumped on the guys on the Junior Stock thread about post HAMB era cars and I am surprised that it has not happened here as well. I have plenty of photos of Tri Fives that I have not posted because they have Centerline, Super Trick etc wheels which fall outside the timeline. The Willys threads are the same --lots of late model Weld wheels etc. Paul (Hudson48) from Australia got in trouble with the Moderators earlier this year for posting photos of cars with inappropriate wheels from a down under run so be careful that it does not happen here.
