Many may not understand these things, but they make me sick. I have seen so many otherwise gorgeous classic cars ruined by 24" or larger chrome wheels and tires with a 1" sidewall. This was a trend that started in the ghettos, and somehow made it into mainstream society. It has gotten so bad that even vehicle manufacturers have started putting these hideous wheels on new cars. That’s bad enough, but to see vintage cars ruined by this garbage is downright disgusting. I don’t have a problem with someone using period correct aftermarket wheels of the proper size on classic cars.
My other issue is people putting modern computer controlled EPA engines in classic cars. I am a firm believer in carburetors and breaker points. I even replaced the 4.3L V6 EPA engine in my 1993 Chevy pickup (standard cab, short bed, 2 wheel drive) with a well built carbureted 383 ci V8. I removed all the electronic and emissions crap. It does have aftermarket electronic ignition, similar to the original GM HEI ignition.
I really don’t mind seeing someone build a hot rod out of a classic car or truck, as long as they use period correct parts. I especially love old gassers, both real and replicas.
