I'll be honest... I steal most of them! Google is my friend!

Lacey's Bomber has recently been partly removed, and is undergoing restoration...

Look at the pic "gas war".

Check out the front ends of both Chevys gassing up. Neither driver seems to understand the concept of "stop".

You can see the grille guard on the '51 is damaged/missing... but how did the '48 wreck the centre grill bar, and not the guard??

Thanks to the "override bar" attached to the bumper guards on the '48 ..... the damage did just that. It overrode!

Took this picture in Texas on Hwy 6 between Houston and College Station. Please excuse the quality as its a picture of a picture.
