Looks to me like they didn't buy into "don't ask, don't tell".

I saw one that I couldn't stop and get a picture of, but the guy had an 80's ford 4X4 with an aluminum roof vent for the hood scoop... maybe that's why it was parked on the side of the highway??

Anything laying around the property is fair game, LOL

Unbelievable what some people come up with!!!

Is this guy going to be singing a few notes higher if that socket slips?

It may not be the safest way to make a spacer but it works.

Is the brace a drag racing thing?
Sorry about reviving an old post, but what is around the carb? It looks like someone cut the center out of a dog dish hubcap.

That is what I see, too. Can't think why though.

Upon closer inspection it looks like the cap isn't cut out. I think we're seeing an emblem that looks like the top of the carb.

I'm more fascinated by the turnbuckle fastened to the shock tower...

Interesting that he is more concerned about the engine torque than unsupported shock towers
