If you buy cars from there it will.

 

Most of what I have followed on there didnt sell though so I kind of phased out.

How had I never heard of bring a trailer until recently? It's the best website on the internet and is going to bankrupt me. 

Just last night someone told me about "bring a trailer."

Think I may put the Vette on there.  Need to get it running.

Go to the article for a slide show. 
 

Could be “holy shit” thread. A lot of guys would give their left nut for one of those. But a whole stable full?

New shoes for Betty. Got rid of the white lettering on the old BFGs and trying out the Cooper GT radials. Not many options out there for 15” wheels...literally just the BFG and Cooper radials.

Prefer the white walls. I have the same wheel/tire set up on my 65. My style steels have red center caps.  I like the white lettering, but the blackwalls look nice on the Machs.

I see the appeal in both. But my personal preference is the redlines. Esp with a black or white paint job. Black 68 with a red c stripe, red interior and redlines is my kryptonite. Or white convertible with red c stripe, red interior and redlines.

Gorgeous car!

I'm restoring a 70 but I've always preferred the 69 -  more aggressive styling. After 2 years of searching had to finally pull the trigger on a 70.

What tire size are you going with on the 15s?  I'm about to pull the trigger on front 225/60/15 and rear 245/60/15.  Up the aggressive look of the 70.

Atta boy. 70 is definitely big body Stang years. That tire setup should match nicely.

I stayed with all around 245/60-15. I thought about going 225s up front but I didn’t want to sacrifice any height. The longtubes are low to the ground. We couldn’t even get it into the tire store’s lift because flanges would contact. Hence why they jacked it up outside the bay.

I always wanted to keep mine as close to traditional original look as possible, but keeping white letters clean was a pain even when I didn’t drive it often. Those bfgs came with the car when I got it 4 years ago.

I had to put shorties on the Firebird to deal with the header flange scrape issue. They sounded much better than I expected.
