Love my Drum Brakes!

I'm still running drums on all four wheels of my '56 and '59 Dodges... If properly calibrated and aligned, they work beautifully... The trick is learning how to / finding someone who knows how to properly adjust 'em. There is one thing I'm planning at some point in the future, though... I'd like to go with a DUAL Master Cylinder... No big expense... just a little extra peace of mind for the classic - and otherwise unmolested - stock hardware. Some say drums are outdated... but I can't justify (much less AFFORD) the thousand bucks to "upgrade" to discs. This coming from someone who cruises in the '56 about 200 miles/week (weather permitting).
