      With offset spring hangers, the 275/60-15's on 15x9's leave a nice footprint.

      The engine seems very healthy and happy.

          the best part is....John did it all in his personal shop / rear garage behind his house....ALL paint , ALL metal repair, All mechanical....you name it, he did it. He even found time to rebuild the aluminum case A833 for the Flash restoration.

          Nice job J.C. !!!!

              He has had some practice....this makes his third one, the other two were he had in the early to mid 70's. The first one was totaled before I met him in 71....I think it involved a tree in one way or another.
