    Not my style either, but it looks like a nice ride. I've got a '55 Sport Coupe. It's amazing how much better they look with about a 2" drop.

    Also, curb weight on a factory '55 Chevy is 3153 pounds.

    Suddenly I don't feel so bad about my 3500lb car. :hs:

    What's with the yellow beams under the rear axle?

    Traction bars? What do they do?

    EDIT: Nevermind, they keep the axle from bending the leaf springs under hard acceleration. But these don't look like the examples I saw online...
