It may seem like Mark has become a one man crusader on this subject, not entirely the case, myself and others within the group have tired of the nonchalant attitudes of some who "don't get it", if I was to even attempt to enlighten some as Mark has I'm sure they still wouldnt get it. Problem is; by not saying something only makes the rest of us "enablers".
Something that I don't think people understand is that anyone new to the HAMB (or any site for that matter) especially those that weren't part of the scene will see things posted on the internet and just think that was how it was, then that is their standard to go by.
This is precisely why we see so much of the kinds of cars Mark describes, they almost look cartoonish.
I myself call it as I see it, an "abomination".
Yes.. I already knew what the title said..Hence my question..and now we have a reply.

Thank You for telling your story and sharing the pictures. This is exactly how I remember Gas Class cars (as well as other class cars and Hot Rods), the real deal was low-buck, parts were robbed off what ever could be found to meet the need. These were the real salt-of-the-earth guys cars, not the magazine stuff.
Love your old Willys!
Here is a example of a real, low-buck, everyday guys Gasser.
Nothing but what it has to have to make it go, mostly parts from donor cars and trucks, steel wheels, etc.
This is the way it really was done.
Got a real deal gasser here.....Been a racecar since the 60's
This is my current coupe...been on the road for over 20 years...the picture is the only time it has ever been down the quatermile (Thompson about 2002) I don't know what I was thinking...still had many hundred miles to get back home. Made it though. My drag racing days were fun...learned alot, broke a few parts...rarely won our heat, but Oh Well...it really was fun. g-willys
I've got a steel 38/41 Willys coupe Gasser, built it in195, still driving it,
