  1. My purchases from Steve have been primarily at shows. Has always been a FIRST CLASS person. He handles products from (obviously) "different" suppliers...… Some of the things that I have gotten were "thin wall", very nice units....some were "rather chubby" and required some "thinning down", but, all in all, I have ALWAYS been happy with my dealings with Steve.

  6. Tire history?

    In keeping your 40 Ford Gasser "period correct" to 1962, yes the Pie-crust slicks would be correct...…. The "event" that was probably "responsible" for the end of the M&H Pie-crust slicks was in the spring of 1965 when Goodyear got Dick Landy to bring his injected 426/ awb Dodge A/FX car to Fontana Dragstrip for a tire comparison against their new "wrinkle wall" slicks. Landy's car with the "pie-crusts" left the line carrying the front tires about six inches off the ground, then they put on the "wrinkle-walls"...…. The car launched so hard that it literally stood on the back bumper!!! The rest is history...….. DJ
  7. What paint to use for this truck??????

    Got curious about the "PETTY BLUE" so went into Wikipedia"s history about the color...………... According to them, the color was created by the PETTY family (this is according to RICHARD ) when they were preparing to paint a racecar, and there was not enough white or dark blue to paint the whole car, and the "blend" of the two colors resulted in "PETTY BLUE". Cool chunk of history...….. Loved the story!!!! DJ
  8. What paint to use for this truck??????

    Knowing that there is only ONE "Petty Blue",(did not know the correct name for it tho) and that the pictures on the "net" make them "seem" lighter or darker, that's why there was the "" Cool to see another Petty fan!!!! DJ
  9. What paint to use for this truck??????

    Almost think that, if you looked thru Google Images, at the different PETTY ENTERPRISES race cars, you might find one of the shades of "Petty Blue" & white that would work...… DJ
