I like the flares but that nose and headlights are awful.
The 3x2s would be cool. Loved the way they howled at 6,000 RPM.
My brother had a set on his 63 Impalla SS that he drag raced.

This looks like The Centurian from the ISCA circuit from the 80s, guy from St Louis. Used to be purple and silver I think.

The back half of the car did burn. The driver lived (he was extremely drunk). The car was restored and is back on the road.
