23rd annual Leprechaun Daze car show sponsored by the Fourth Corner Elites in Bellingham. Fortunately we had a "sun break" and good attendance.

Brian Curtis (chocolateturkey here), TW editor of the Custom and Modified column, was there with his '63 Hawk (fairly rare 3 speed OD). Brian's Hawk has been on jack stands for the past year or so for various mods and updates including a Turner disc brake kit. Brian got it back on the ground for this show sporting a new set of American Racing "Salt Flats Specials"...very good looking wheels (IMHO) for this style Stude...

Scott Hall brought out his beautiful Speedster. Just when you think you've seen the perfect car, Scott does it one (or two) better. It's now sporting body colored headlight bezels instead of the chrome it was wearing on the Aug '06 TW cover, AND new bullet caps to replace the baby moons. Both changes are pluses to an already gorgeous car.

I know it's not a Stude, but this is the one I'd like to take home [:p]...

The Hawk is gorgeous. I absolutely love the stance with those wheels. Nice job Brian! ;)
And as far as that Speedster, I thought that it couldn't get any more perfect. :D

Howdy Dick, WOW, those Salt Flats look great on Brians GT! Now, if they just had the tri-bar spinners on them.....[:p] I might have to start looking for a GT!

Thanks Guys! I'll have to save my allowance to get those tri-bar spinners! I like 'em too! My next expense will be the flanged rear axles and hopefully a four-link rear suspension.
Scott's Speedster is second to none, isn't it?

I would love to put those Salt Flat wheels on my 56 Parkview but there would be no way with out narrowing the rear end.

As soon as you find a product you like they will stop making it.
