    I'd still like to cut another 1/2 coil out of the front of the Coronet, but I'm pretty happy as they both sit. 20200330_133529.jpeg

    I buy the wheels and stance argument, but the real attention getter is what form of induction you have for the motor. Like Ed Roth said, "Exposed mechanicals are where it's at!".... or some such thing.

    A set of pix from Dec when I was finally able to afford some new DT’s for these American TTO’s
    I had literally just bolted them on.
    Love this look.

    Every time I see one of these, especially in the West, I wonder if it is my old one. I should never..........:(
