Re: 15/16/17" ?

17 x 7" on the front and 17 x 8" on the back... only wish I had found some tires that had more sidewall height. But eventually I WILL. :beer: Bruce, what size tires are you running? Do you see any reason why these wouldn't fit on a 1973-74 ? I'll actually have to check the tire size on the car when...

Re: JY9 Tawney Gold

Steve, check out this thread of Gionni's build of a radical GY9 Road Runner over in Europe. His car looks killer in that color! You'll have to scroll down quite a ways...

Re: WIW 71 GTX Triple Green

Steve (quapman) has passed on the GTX he posted, so the car is still available. In the neighborhood of $4k as I understand.

Re: Disc brake conversion kits

All F-Body stuff on mine. They work fine. The car now has the best brakes it's ever had.

Mine was a kit from US Car Tool and the drilled and slotted rotors are an option on the kit. In the second photo you can see the calipers that we powered coated orange.

Re: old car, new shoes

Actually I've got a new favorite color. It was on this Studebaker Lark gasser at the Gasser Shootout at Piedmont Dragway yesterday. :D

Re: White '71s

Funniest comment all day was when I opened the hood to my car to display the 440+6... a teenager to the left of me asked what I paid for the Optima battery in the car. Confronted with a 440+6 and all he can comment on is the cheap Advance Auto battery I have in the car? :lol: :lol: :lol:

It has been to the Nats, Carlisle,...
