It is amazing how you can take a car such as a 51 Henry & make it look good. It does look good... I am really partial to a gasser that has a high rake front end/straight axle though (like 60's old school). Something high in the front, has carbs/blower sticking out, 4speed, fender-well headers, that is loud & hard to keep straight... just curious, am I incorrect to think that a true "Gasser" is a straight axle front end car?? Or is a true gasser defined a different way?

The term should be '60's Gasser Style' for the nose high attitude. THIS Henry's style is a modern take on the Gassers of the 60's. I personally like them both if done well. I've seen 60's era Gassers done up terribly and others that I could drool over for hours ! Same with the 'modern twist' Gassers. It's all in the presentation and build quality.
