Until this thread I've never had the opportunity to see the lake pipes on a Squarebird. They look very sharp !

The extra photo of the white Squarebird appears to have them tucked into the front wheel wells.

I do like the Lake Pipes on your car - hope we can hear them on Youtube or something.

I used to be more on the "original" side of the fence but I've been slowly drawn to the dark side - - things like "RustyNCa's" blower etc but it really depends on the car and how it's done.

You need front disc brakes though........

Thanks. I really like them and hope to have them set up soon as real pipes that I can cap and uncap.

Will wood disk break conversion is in the plan soon. I really struggled over choosing Cragar S/S rims over the new style that I chose instead. Willwood requires 17 inch rims so that ultimately was the reason I went with the 17s. Those big old drum brakes are a bear even if they are power. I once had a 1998 Lincoln LSC Mark VIII which was the last year for them. At 140mph I found out quickly that factory disc brakes werenít sufficient enough to stop it in a hurry. I switched to Cobra drilled and slotted brakes and it made all of the difference in the world. No way Iím going to chance going fast with this locomotive haha.
