That's a great combo of cars...I'm not a big gasser fan but that last photo in the set looks pretty awesome.

well...the bel-air bash has taken place...

 The favorite, the black '55 ran a  SLOW 1.427 and a 1.429...

the grey '55 ran a little better 1.401 and a 1.411...

the blue '55 ran a  close but no cigar 1.394 and a 1.396...

the gold '55 ran a winning 1.387 and a 1.392...

i crudely prepped the wheels with graphite , [didn't drill rivets]...

goldie rocks ran a 1.383 and a 1.379 and a *1.375 and a 1.382 and a 1.380...

....like a "lucky"  lobster being chosen from the tank at the sea food shop,

 the gold '55 will soon be going under the knife / drill... and donate it's base to a "Wagon Warrior"
