    Googled "tx9 red stripes" and went scrolling. Found this awesome thing. I know there's a good descriptor but I just can't put my finger on it. Perhaps @Darla Starch would be willing to help me out.

    :p

    '70 Super Bee. I prefer a Coronet R/T, but there's just no arguing with this.

    At this point it's probably more accurate to say it's a modern Corvette wearing a 1936 Cadillac suit.

    Is it possible to be sexually excited by a car? I swear it's triggering the same part of my brain responsible for that feeling.

    Rather something for hot rods, since I've been on a bit of a cross ram bent since posting that Boss 302 with the Cross Boss. I came across this peculiar setup.

    [​IMG]

    It appears to be a low profile Offy cross ram but the top plate accommodates three Weber IDAs.

    I'm not sure when it was offered, but I can't imagine it's newer than the '70s. It's an odd number of Webers (ba-dum tsss) for a V8--you typically find them in pairs, in a downdraft or sidedraft orientation--and IDAs are geared more toward WOT, with street performance compromised. If pure performance is the aim, why three instead of four? If street performance is the aim, why not IDFs? It's...odd. Cool though. I really want to see the throttle linkage that's utilized.

    I love the Plymouth Barracuda Mod Top. And it wasn't just the top. The interior was just as mod.
    [​IMG]

    I love traditionally styled hot rods. Modern smoothed-over-soap-bar hot rods, customs and street rods just don't do it for me. I can appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into creating them, but still be left cold by the look. Give me skinny bias-ply tires and visible door hinges and I'm happy.

    Browsing Fairmont Futura stuff, I happened upon this Ford Motorsports print add featuring a modified example.

    I'm kinda digging that chin treatment, even if it hangs a little low in relation to the rocker panels. Appliance Dia-Mags are a treat.

    People slag on the malaise era cars, but a little restraint and a good eye for stance can create some real nice looking performance cars.

    My dad brought home his 66 GTO a few months after buying it.

    Is that a hood-mounted tachometer in that little bulge?

    I'm not a big Boyd Coddington fan, but I have to admit the Junk Yard Dog wheels on this 1955 Studebaker Champion Conestoga Custom Wagon look good. They're not overpowering at all. Which is good since this still has the original flathead six and three-speed auto.

    This is my cousin's 1971 Camaro:[​IMG]
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    It isn't roadworthy at the moment but he'll sort it out pretty soon. The car has a 502 big block in it, a fuel cell in the boot, upgraded exhaust and a 3-speed gearbox. Suspension and brakes are standard but he'll probably get it upgraded. He's in the army so I don't think he'll have any trouble paying for it. Can't wait for him to drive it down to Melbourne.
