It really does look mean and nasty. I like it! Is that a '33? Rear tire source?

Nice build. I love Gassers from the begining to the end of the class. Yours has just the right late 60's to early 70's look, just when they were going to larger softer rubber, dropping the front ends a tad and a few teams hanging on to the older body styles in leiu of the Opel GT's. Looks ready for the Gas Class'es last hoorah.

The other thing that makes it look good is that it is more of a period correct Gasser, than a Newstalgia Gasser. The roll cage even fits the era in which there was more interest in safety sort of an evolution from the single hoop bar to the cage. Did I say I liked it...
