Rush, you are a man of few words. Well said!
Hey Rush isn’t that the old Bonnie and Clyde hideout? Nice shot...

Crappy scanned photo, I know, but this is all about wheels and stance...!
My 37 Chevy and Willy's pick-up I'm building now have the gasser stance
My in progress A. Does not get better than this.
The 3rd component besides wheels and stance is the front grill.
This is why all auto manufacturers make a big deal about their front grills and most get it wrong..
Especially a huge Japanese manufacturer ...their grills look like a big commercial air conditioning system.
Back on subject...
Yes it is. Clyde was driving a rare 32' B400 while staying here.

57 old school look - Happy New Year
...back in the 60's, this is the stance we went for...
Tires and stance are a great starting point when building any car.
My '33 with new wheels...
I always liked slightly lower and level best or even a slight gasser rake.. Chrome steel wheels no white wall..
My humble submission...
Not the best picture and the garage looks like... well, a mess; but here is my 36 roadster with the new big and littles.
25 inches at front, 31.7 inches at the rear... them suckers are tall!!
Pardon the bodywork effort.
Work in progress. Budget wheels being painted ivory. Car to be copper.
I have loved this Woodie for several years..........My Bucketlist is to build one just like it one day...
Black wheels, baby moons and wide whites. Straight out of the ‘60s. I’m stuck there.

It's interesting how subjective some of this is. For instance, many pals think I need to drop my truck more. But I think "how the hell will I haul anything? It's already dropped 4 inches." I've decided to bring the front down another inch.

A fall pic of my Model A
I love the way the front tires are tucked up inside those beautifully curved '29 fenders.
You really nailed it.
I’m right there with you 15x6 on the front and 15x8.5 Ansen Top Eliminators made a whole different look on this car
It’s still a raggedy wagon one day it will be shiny but not anytime soon
Since I've reached a stopping point on the body and paint work, and because the last picture had some clutter issues;
here's an updated picture and another from the rear quarter... sure is down in front!
Regrettably, the shop is still a disaster!
I'm anxious to get it outside for a proper profile picture.
Hopefully it won't be too long.
