    It's amazing what they used to produce, and I wonder how they made the millions of original pieces that looked so great when they were new. Sometimes I wish there was an interesting way to coat them...

    I was wondering if you could polish pieces like that laying on a bench with a 3 in buffing wheel on a die grinder?

    A bad ground can do some crazy stuff. I had the opposite front turn signal randomly turning on instead of staying off. It seems the current can feed-back somewhere, if it can find an alternate path...

    The chassis you modified looks great, and will probably work fine on a lightweight C1 on a smooth road, but I am thinking as far as track width goes, sometimes maybe a narrower tire might work...

    What is the big benefit of a narrow axel over a wide axel, especially on an IRS? Seems backwards to me. Something to consider, with your single shear dog-bone mounts, it would be a great application...

    I love the hood birds some of them still run. Maybe even 1 pound of down force.

    55-57 Stock Cars pictures (lots)

    I just came across this FB group about 55-57 past/present Stock cars, and found it interesting. The Trifives made some great looking race cars, which will at least keep the value up on the rest of...

    Too many variables, that I couldn't make a guess, other than like most things I try to do that should only take an hour. I should multiply the time, and money by at least 5. Good luck.

    Well said Gmv. As far as handling, a stock shoebox could comfortably fly right on by a C7 Corvette on a rough road in a cloud of dust, which is what these cars were good at, and looked good doing it.

    No offence, but to me those tires look too short for the wheel opening size, no matter how wide they might be.

    Yeah I know. Try and find a 255/60-15, or 275/60-15 which used be a popular size, and now there are only like 3 choices, which are not that exciting. I would love to find some sticky performance...

    One problem with 15 inch tires is there are no good ones out there anymore. You could always just step it up a little bit to like a 16 x 7 wheel, with a popular sized 215/65-16 tire, which is the...

    It's never really bothered me ever, when a thread takes a fork in the road. Not a big deal. At least it can make it interesting, and keep it rolling, instead of just falling off the edge.

    I found this kind of interesting. The stock 1955 tire was a 6.70-15 that was 27 inches tall. With todays measurement it would be equal to a 170/90-15 that would also be 27 tall.
