Saw this Pontiac in the latest issue of Hot Rod magazine..... thought you'd like to see it.
I am using ladder bars with leaf springs (in the stock position with reinforced mounting brackets) that gets the job done with NO binding issues so far. Lots of noise coming "from back there" which I refer to as "sounds of a race car". :0]I appreciate that. I have been thinking about ladder bars, even four link but the long tubes just do something for me. I may be wise to go with the shorter ladders rather than fight the binding issue. I think by eliminating the leaf springs and using coil-overs and putting rubber bushings in the front of the tubes I can eliminate most of the binding. Whata you think?
Weren't those the great days of drag racing? Everybody lined up to get in the gate, and hardly a trailer in sight, except for the really big dogs! Man we had a lot of fun racing then, and never really cared about whether we'd win anything or not!Mark ..... somehow I had the feeling you saw this Poncho already...... you don't miss much!!!!
CptBob..... I do remember those days..... the first organized drag strip opened in the Pittsburgh area in 1964. Most of the cars that raced back then were "driven" to the strip..... after all most were our "daily drivers". You never saw any of the "enclosed trailers" that are so commonplace today.
WoW Vall...... It is almost like we lived in the same place....... that was one "line" that was FUN to wait in.Weren't those the great days of drag racing?

No....NOT Kidding!!!! This was in the South Hills of Pittsburgh.Wow! You guys have got to be kiddin'. No offence, but you must be talking west coast. The only thing I remember having any legal issues with in "rural N.C." was loud exaust. Well.....I did grow up in what we called "the country" but others refered to it as "the sticks." We went to "town" on a fairly regular basis though and never had any of those problems. Remember scavenger pipes? ........
