Sure they can you just have to figure out how to get your car under 1500 lbs

But by the standards of the younger set is 185 / 45 on a 8 inch rim really much of a stretch ?

Mine was 1440 but I had the " big block " 1293 and a twin tanks .

I figure that custom job has a little more weight to it but not that much more.

Hmm. Not sure. Figured the blocks would weigh the same. Mine was on a certified CAT scale. I intend to re-weigh after the restoration to see how much I added. Probably gonna be significant with all the Lizzard skin and other goodies.

To be fair, Chase has always been a fan of men in clubs. Lol.

But I do love me a good clubman as well.
