    Couldn't agree more. Even a crappy Ride looks cool when the Wheels/Tires/Stance is right.
    Every one of my Projects begin that way, and I create the rest of the Look around how it sits.

  4. I figured I better get the stance and wheels/tires right since there wasn't much else to look at.

    I hate to be a nattering nabob of negativity but the two things that make up a hotrod should be H P. If you put high heels on a pig, it ,ay have a rake but it is still a pig. Just sayen! o_O

    My 40 chevy, no bags but that might change. The rear springs are a little to stiff right now.
     
  16. Agree 100%. These wheels and stance wouldn't look good on most street rods, mandatory for Gasser look.

    Literally, any old car can be an eye catcher with the right wheels and a good stance. This rusty, beat up ugly old beater wagon just about proves it.
