I love the look but i don't know how many of you have ever driven a straight axle car. When i first put my blown chevy sm/blk together in my 1956 T'bird in 1964 i put a straight axle in it. In those days there was only 10.5 wide slicks. That thing would skate all over the track. No weight transfer. The next yr i built a VW link pin torsion front end under the car and it ran 140's and straight as an arrow and would pull the front end about a foot on every launch.
But again i love the look.

Zip.

Oh Yeah, those were a total handful with a high pucker rate. It was 'the' technology of the day though.
