Just hanging around here at Redline Derby it doesn't take long to see that the gasser style of car is popular. Even on some TV shows I've seen several gassers as star cars. Then when I discovered the Lamley Group site I saw they had a survey of which cars people liked best, and in that list was a Bel Air gasser. I voted for my favorite (not the gasser) and then saw the results which were overwhelmingly for the gasser.
So just wanted to get a peek inside your heads as to why you find the gassers so appealing?
Or maybe you don't, and I'd like to hear your side of the story too.
Personally, the gasser is not a top pick. It's not exactly low on my list of favorite car styles but when lined up against others it probably won't be my top pick. If I had to pick a reason why it's might be the overall stance of the car is just weird to me. Or call it "the line" or whatever but the gasser ends up looking like a mistake to me.
Essentially any car can be made into a gasser but when that happens I just can't help but look at it and go, "they ruined the character of the car." Some car styles do lend themselves to becoming gassers than others...and maybe that's the trick, just finding the right body for the mod. However, the more gassers I see, the more I feel like the list of body styles is really, really short.
