John Dinkel doesn't hesitate to torture the Mickey Thompson 28 X 10.5-inch slicks mounted on American Racing Torq Thrust wheels. While Dinkel does most of the track driving, Coombes often drives the 11.2:1 compression, registered and inspected hot rod on the street. An identical set of the nostalgic Torq Thrusts wear a set of McCreary L60 street tires when the decision is made to go to the local cruise night or pick up groceries. There is nothing quite like a testimonial to support your claim and one that attests to the streetable nature of Coombes '70 T/A was made by Matt Dalton after he got the chance to drive it at Norwalk. "It was a fabulous weekend. I was extremely impressed with the complete and utter driveability of Steve Coombes '70 T/A. I have never seen a more manageable 680 hp. This thing idled like a baby, never got over 180*, and delivered 10.60 passes on demand. I was ready to drive it to the motel room."
