Coker Tires 1

Wow, what a difference a week makes. It was last Tuesday I rolled into Chattanooga with the Chadly Coupe. Here's a shot of the coupe in front of Honest Charley's Speed Shop after Mike Goodman jumped out in the street and waved the coupe in... With a 7 1/2-inch chop it's kind of hard to see where you're going.

I drove over 4,000 miles across country staring mostly at the coupe's bulkhead above the windshield. In Chattanooga on Tuesday morning I didn't have any real idea how to get to Coker, so I just started blasting around town blindly. Later Tommy Lee Byrd told me they heard the coupe's 331 Hemi roaring up and down the streets before Mike Goodman spotted me flying by Honest Charley's and waved me in. By then one of the six Holley 94s was pouring out gas. Notice in the one photo I used a pair of Vicegrips to squish the fuel line flat and stop the flow.

Check out Corky next to the equipment Coker uses to custom make just about any kind wheel needed in house. I'll get into a lot more detail in an upcoming story to appear in the pages of Street Rodder on genuine paper.
