  1. 1968 ELECTRO 12

    I need feed back...I put the stack muffler on it for shows...At our heritage days here in Pa. one year a young boy got a spark or a piece of rust out of a muffler in his eye....He was standing with his parents and as the parade went by it happened...I know its not original but I will sell the stack muffler with it ...I have since put the stock muffler on it...'Does putting that stack muffler hurt on the judging at these wheel horse shows"????

  12. Tires on my 1968 Charger Electro

    i dug this wheel horse out of a leaf pile and i havent put a pound of air in them yet...lol..unbelievable !
  13. Since this is my first Wheel Horse , i will have a ton of questions for you guys ! Saturday i was looking at the tires on my 1968 Charger. And on all four tires they say Wheel Horse...Would that be a good bet too say they are originals? I worked at Carlisle Tire And Wheel from 1997 till they closed the plant in Carlisle Pa.on December of 2010.One of the first meetings I attended there in 1997, they actually told us they were going to cheapen the tires because their tires were lasting way too long ! So thats when the synthetic rubber of today came in...(just put that in for anyone intrested). Thanks for all the help and input you all have given me it is greatly appreiciated!!!...BOB...HOPE TO SEE SOME OF YA AT ARNDTSVILLE!
