Re: The Secrets of Stance:

X2, when someone starts with a tire size rather than stance, it generally does not bode well for the finished look.

Re: The Secrets of Stance:

Thanks for that, I liked it. And I love first gen Chargers, and I think I agreed with almost all of the issues with the pictures.

At a specific point in time, that was “the look”. If someone was building a car with vintage parts, or dragged a survivor out of storage it would still look cool and draw favorable attention. It’s when they take short cuts and don’t commit to that era, the look fails. The best nostalgic style cars are built to a specific date, they only use parts and techniques that were available then.

The floodwater - "Chevelle guys actually seem far more predisposed to this look for some reason."
I laughed hard about this bc my father's 67SS has this stance... And he loves it, would not change it for the world.

Re: The Secrets of Stance:

The # 2 Pic is the Original/Stock look for 1967 in our Chevelles this Charger

the # 4 pic just a little high over all with the Front a little Lower than Stock and the Rear a little Higher than Stock

but a lot better than the Pics 3 / 6 / 8 / 9 / 10 / ...... and like, that look ugly to me

the # 5 looks like the Wagon Wheels that were my Dad's Old Hay Wagon in the late 50s / early 60s

But to each their own

Re: The Secrets of Stance:

I like the tucked tire look with 15" wheels and a little lower in the front. I try and get my front and rear tire heights as close as possible and also try and keep the dish of the wheel as close as possible front and rear.

When I first built my Malibu back in 1991, I took great pains to achieve a similiar look. It stated with an all Iron big block, copper 4-row Radiator, and battery in stock location. As things evolved, the only thing on the engine that is iron is the block, the Radiator is now a aluminum unit, and the battery is in the trunk.

The front steadily rose as these mods took place, approaching the "gasser look". Finally, I had to change the front springs to get it back the way I wanted it.

There is still a little of a compromise. I would' mind it being a tad lower, but the Lemons Headers and 3 1/2 inch X pipe exaust dictates it to be about where it is. I can live with it..

Re: The Secrets of Stance:

That's a good look Jackie. Are the rear wells flared or is the pic playing with my eyes?

Yes, they are flared. Back when I first had the original body work done, I had the late Bill Wallace of Wallace Restorations design and do them. My main goal was more tire clearance, but the visual affect came out pretty well.

I know it's "old school", but I get a lot of compliments on how well the car looks with the flairs.

Here's a rear quarter view.....
