    I picked up this '48 Austin a year or so ago, a work in progress....At least it's licensed, runs and drives now. Still a long way to go.
    How it looked when I got it. Anyone recognize it?? I'd love to know the history.

  25. Hi, I 'm glad you are still here , as the author of this thread. I'd like to ask you a few questions.
    Your title kind of leaves the door open fairly wide, as to what you were expecting to see.
    So now, about 14 years down the road, are you okay with what is now a significant part of the gasser "fad" ?
    By that I mean the exxagerated , cartoon like cars with excessively jacked up front ends, incorrect and inaccurate class designation lettering, modern supposedly retro wheels, that weren't even being made yet when you started this thread, billet components, induction systems that are not at all retro or traditional? In other words , Facebook "gassers".
    Or were you expecting to see cars what one might have seen in 1965, which most know, is the cut off point for this site?
    Just curious. No right or wrong answers, and no apologies needed..At least not for me.

    Hey Mark,
    To answer your question, '60's style/period-ish Gasser cars. It is best that we stick to this as not doing so would shut down the thread, and I would hate to see that happen after 14 years.
    Let's leave the "I installed a tube axle under anything and I call it a gasser" to the facebook universe.
    Thank you for your question,
    Glenn Hayes
    Yes, I'm on Facebook too !

    Mark, you didn't ask me but I'll stick my nose in for a minute. If a thread title has the
    word "style" I think it's safe to presume all sorts of cars are going to be posted, period
    accurate or not. You may not like it but you know what to expect. Railing against the
    inaccurate is going to get you nowhere, guys are not going to delete their posts and pics.

    Things got so ridiculous over at "Tri-Five Gassers" that I went through and pulled the
    majority of photos I posted, all photos that I had taken. It's fun to both post and view
    these cars, until the complaints outnumber the pics. Mitch

  29. The page number here is #64...that's fitting because the picture from this post is somewhere around 1964.
    Back then as you can see by the photo, I was just in my early 20's...going to college and no real good paying job.
    I drove this car as a stocker for more than 2 years before we made it into a race car. Let me point out a couple things.!
    No fiberglass parts (we couldn't afford them) fancy paint, and no permanent lettering...(couldn't afford that either). And no Mag wheels (same reason as before, even though they were cheaper than now!) We did have some money in the engine/trans/induction...but all we could afford for tires were Atlas Bucrons, and red primer for paint.
    Most of the gassers I saw at the strip looked more like this...not the fancy ones of today. You had to have a good sponsor for that. Sure wish I had kept this car!!! It has only changed hands 4 time since it was sold in 1969, and is now a street rod. g-willys P.S. Whether they were built back then or NOW...I love 'em all IMG_20160714_204945317 (3).jpg IMG_20180215_141532310 (1).jpg
