[QUOTE=Restrorob;4714662]OK Normmie..... After look'n back I missed your stumpers.....

BUT...... Be'n the gear-head I am.....We gotta high jack this thread a minute..... More pics and details on this !!!!


I knew I would hook you on that one!!!

That there would be my 65 chevelle SS
She's not a show piece she's a bad azz driver

454 BB/ 400 turbo 3000 stall /3.73 12 bolt she chops hard and loud with 1 chamber race mufflers it sounds sooooooo goooood.

Have to run slicks/drag radials always

Not so much into the shiny paint/shiny rims stuff
I like running my steel rims and flat paint.Only had these couple pics on this computer unfortunately they show the welds with street tires on the rear cause she was sitting for a while not used so I pulled the slicks off as to not to flat spot them.

Sorry for the hi jack guys!!!!

You dont miss much.


The under pinnings of this car have been gone through front ends been replaced , aftermarket disc brakes, springs .HD manual master cyl (higher pressure) etc etc she whoas ok

Also rear has strange axles with c-clip eliminators /long lugs with fresh lg drums.

New steel gas tank with a sump welded in and #8 fuel line.

Bottom half new car, top half old clunker.

Wouldn't call it a sleeper sounds like a hot dedicated track car she ain't subtle.Borderline obnoxious almost. I can only handle the noise in small doses.I think I'm getten older .Man if you were closer I'd take you for a spin and blow your hair back!!!!!

I can't get enough of a healthy sounding rumbler heading down the road, I don't play the stereo in my truck..... The sound of that 502 is all the music I need, And this ole geezer still has hair long enough to be blown back !

Thanks for sharing Normmie.....

The bottom one I know as a movers jack from back when I worked for a rigger. The others I would hazard a guess as some kind of home made tire removal tool, it looks like what I use to take a tire off a rim, close ?

I'm gonna agree with Richard. A prybar for removing the ring on budd rims..
The other one looks like a Simplex railroad jack...I have a 20 ton from when I worked on forklifts..
