    I really like that old Plymouth. That would be a really sneaky hot rod. That tall shifter looks like it came out of a pickup truck, cool car!

    Heavens yes that girl will slide! Those tires, that road some fun could be had. I'd prefer wider bars.:woowoo:

    A little heavy for toe sliding tho. Got to flat foot them.

    they mx bars, i measure but i think 32-34 wide...

    You got no trees to fit between. Wider bars give you better leverage, feel and control.

    I remember putting 32 inch bars between a 28 inch gap between 2 trees. Gas it, get front wheel off ground, throw bars sideways. After clearing trees set it down.

    If it worked you felt like Dick Burlesen or Jack Penton. If not oh well
