    Lots of people have them for sale. That's not the problem, paying for them is. LOL

    And not really a good idea to run 50 year old magnesium wheels on the street unless you get them crack tested (zyglo or whatever the current process is).

    I don't think they would look right with locking lug nuts. :D
     
  4. Real mags are aspirational at this point. I'm not willing to fork out the cash for a set at the moment.

    A little off topic, but as I understand it, Butch Thuney still owns this 55 Chevrolet. Lots of photos of the car can be found in various Northwest Drag Racing sites on Facebook. Originally, the car was all red. I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

    One of the advantages of living down the road from Famoso is I’ve gotten a few good pictures over the years. I apologize in advance if some are fuzzy. Most of the cars I shot actually run. Adjustments.JPG Adjustments.JPG Adjustments.JPG Adjustments.JPG
    The 57 150 was a stick car. The guy would drive it from AZ and run it on the same tires I believe. Really nice guy to talk to!

    A local Kern County guy I think. Always fun to watch him run. If I remember correctly he wrecked and lost the fiber glass front end and had to replace it.

    This one is my favorite! I have studied it via pictures in detail. It is what I planned to make my car essentially look like.
