gasser style or looking vehicles

we are putting together a website, can't give out the name yet, for gasser style looking cars and trucks. Plus we will have a parts and project page along with vendors who are helping in finding resources and products.
On the website ther will be a Rat Rod section
A section for cars for sale from the desert, these will be bodies and parts for people who are looking for projects. Living out in the dry desert you can find alot of good sheetmetal
So if you would like to email me pics of your projects and your rides, that would be great.
Also I am working with the folks on an article for the route 66 magazine on cars and projects.
Plus putting together a directory of who's who.
And if you would like to be a memeber of the route 66 association, drop me a line and I can get you that information.
Also would like to hear from ones that live along the route66 hiway or have has any experiences while driving on it.
This could be fun and give us little guys some exposuer to the media.
Hey and who doesn't like to be exposed, you know what I mean.

Sounds like an excellent idea .

I'm hoping you'll have a forum where people can exchange knowledge and culture.

I'm sure you're aware of GasserMadness.com, a great gasser site, but without a forum.

Keep us posted.

Hey, WILLYS36...

Hey WILLYS36, this means YOU. The only thing I love more than old Gassers
are the guys who preserve them. Willys36's yellow gasser is a stunning and
faithful trip down memory lane. A web sight devoted to those special cars
is a great idea.

Does anyone know of a web sight featuring my second favorite drag racers;
Blown Fuel Altereds from the same period? I would love to see a photo of
"Wild Willy" Borsch one handing his sideways fuel altered again.



I reject your reality and substitute my own.


I just ran across DanB's beautiful red Willys gasser...This means YOU also!
I imagine hotrodders.com is loaded with gasser creators that I have yet to discover.

Wild Willy

Get onto www.awfulawfulfuelaltereds.com - plenty of nostalgia. Also check out Bob McClurgs' photos, I got two of his posters in my shed to give me the guilts when I work on the tow car instead of the altered.

Never too many gassers for my taste but isn't your new site just a clone of Byron's Gasser Madness? he seems very well tied into all the old-timer real gassers with many photos on his site I have never seen anywhere else.

I hear you KB2, my next winters project is a straight axle gasser style '71 Vega Fastback/hatchback, been collecting parts for 1-1/2 years for it.

actualy your 71 vega falls within the gasser years my 88 ranger does not
I just ordered some looong ladder bars to add to the look
I am going to mount the front of the bars using shackles to compensate for conflicting axle travel arc's

Sorta, but not really, the nose-high gassers were starting to die by 1969 or so, about the time Ohio George went from the Willys to a new Mustang body and the Gas cars sat much lower, like a funny car. You're right about the Ranger, you are farther out of it than I am, I also think the look could be pulled off with a 5.0 Mustang Notchback or Monte SS or Hurst Olds Clone from the 80's but it is a tricky balancing act to do it without going too far.

I like your Ranger

I'm building a old Austin sedan type gasser. Just took my first drive in it recently, but still needs some fine tuning and interior/bodywork to complete.
Haven't decided if it will stay unmarked, or get a name on the side yet?
