Theme Tuesdays: Wheel Stands

6

I’ve been dropping hints that this Theme Tuesday was coming for awhile now and I’ve finally pulled together a collection I’m happy with (at least for a part one).

Most of these pictures come from hanging around the H.A.M.B. and the Yellow Bullet forums where they love cars new or old that can put their front wheels in the air via monstrous amounts of torque.

There’s a mix of vintage and more recent stuff here so I’ll start with the more contemporary then fade into the past.

  1. Sure you can. There’s tons of pics of drag cars from the sixties that are wheels-up with huge clouds of smoke coming off the tires.

  2. I like the helpful information you provide in your articles. Ill bookmark your weblog and check again here regularly. I’m quite certain I will learn plenty of new stuff right here! Good luck for the next!
