It just has to be America Racing TOrque Thrust D's. On my Challenger, I had Torque Thrust D's on the back with black steel on the front. It looked evil. 16's in back, 14's up front chrome lug nuts on black steel. (I hate when I get to missing that car. Would you guys please stop me from rambling on about her)

It ALL depens on what car, of course you wouldnt want steelies on your 69 big block chevelle or on your SUV. On the other hand you'd want steelies on your 40 Ford and not SUV spinners. And on your SUV you're better off leaving the stock wheels on and forgeting the SUV spinners.

And the funny thing is, the Mind Binder '42 and my yellow '36 never saw a race track - just cruisers!!

Have you ever taken ChryTerror to the track? Both the 36 and the 42 are running parachutes though, just for the looks?
Oh, and another thing, in another pic you posted it kinda looks like the hillborn scoop is kinda like bolted onto the hood or somethin'.......is it? So when you flip the hood up the scoop goes with and when you flip it down it goes over the air cleaner? Or are you running a blower? Sweet car though love it!

You have a good eye! Both the Mind Binder guy and I built our cars to look every bit the part but neither has ever been raced. He had a cover shot and full color feature article in Rod & Custom magazine some time in the 70s.

Here is a link that tells the story of my car and show how I made the Hilborn fresh air scoop. Wish it were a 6-71 but too expensive.

I was wrong, the Mind Binder article was in '67! Incidentally, when was the last time you could buy ANYTHING for $0.50, let alone a rod magazine? This display is too small to read the text but go to my photo album and enlarge the pictures there and you can read the article if interested.

What about chrome reverse with no center cap ala 1962?

Oh yes, and the straight front axle and the front end jacked up in the air.
