Come on, if you are driving a '64 SS, this stand is definitely not too sexy for you
Thank you both - it is very nice
I believe the base is cast iron (at least that is how it feels to me)
The curved bar is metal (hollow) but I do not know what type of metal
I got an excellent deal on this and ordered it Monday evening - it just arrived
The box was substantial - probably weighing about 20 lbs.
Putting it together was simple and I cannot see this stand being knocked over without horseplay being involved (yup, I used the word "horseplay" LOL)
