Funny Anders, I was just going to say that I thought it needed some more aggressive wheels. Those covers are too 'family sedan', but that's just me.

But, I love the two tone gray and the selective removal of chrome and the stance. Nicely done.

yeah the wheels are just to drive the car for the test drive and then I'm getting some 17 or 18 in mag or spoke wheels. now it's 14 in all crack up old tires. and I gonna lower the back I lower the front 3 in it's a little to low in front put I have all winter to balance all of that and finish the interior I still have plenty of work to do.

As soon as you put anything bigger than 15" on you will lose tons of vintage feeling and it will become some kind of "pimp my ride thing". That would be a shame on this baby. There is nothing near "family sedan" over these nice hubcaps. They are period custom, and thatīs a GOOD thing!
Yes, itīs your car. But Iīm firm on this!
