The new front rubber having a taller side wall rides so smooth.
My son and I took it out to an abandon building I have been eyeing up and got some pictures. Oh and did a few burnouts just to make sure.

Gorgeous pics. What a cool place to get some shots. Oh yes, and the artillery wheels get two thumbs up!

Re: My 52 GMC Build

A week ago we went on a garage crawl. Started with breakfast and then at our leisure we checked out some of the hotrod shops around town. It was really great, almost all had a GM truck. I never knew there where that many hot rod shops close to me.

Re: My 52 GMC Build

Most of the shops are family run. The first pic shows a really cool fixture to figure out wheel size and spacing.

I love the walk don't walk, that is cool. A drink don't drink light would be cool too.

Is the Camaro SS at Lowdown in Cambridge? They have a super low ceiling there...

Looking closer, I see the rail dragster is obviously at Lowdown, where else did you go? We also have Hitman here in Cambridge.

Re: My 52 GMC Build

Cool light sign. Man, you have a lot of cool stuff being built near you. That bomb is pretty cool too. That limo VW looks like it took 3 or 4 of them to build it. It might need a real engine now though.
