'Nervous Nick's' Austin Gasser

Nick's 1948 Austin Gasser - 'Nogbad the Bad' is powered by a 289 Ford small block backed up by a C4 box. Originally built by Mike Taylor in the early 80's, Mike sold the car to a local rodder who then parked it in a Bristol lock up for over 15 years until Nicks intervention. Nick is a member of the 'Nervous Surgeons' club and is based in Buckinghamshire.

Spotted in 2006 at the Nostalgia Nationals - minus racecar graphics and fenderwell headers.

Russ Price's '55 Chevy Gasser

55 Gasser at Shakey
    Russ's '55 Gasser runs a marine application 454 BBC which was originally running reverse rotation, as it came out of a speed boat. With a mild cam, soon to be fitted with a Weiand tunnel ram, and a 9 inch axle is set to  replace the Camaro unit fitted now. Front axle is straight tube, built by Merv Barnett. Work involved replacement of the complete floor pan, and Volvo radiused arches were fitted. This was a local car bought off Mike Taylor who in turn purchased it many moons ago from Archie (an old local rodder ).
Good luck to Russ who aims to run in the 'Gasser Circus'.
