Yeah, they are Pace Car wheels, thought someone might catch that.
Car is just a cool driver, needs some work but I fear it would snowball into a serious case of mission creep so I haven't gone too far into the body. Mechanically everything is new.
No sense having a car too nice to drive......
The lines on the rear qtr panels seriously remind me of a '66 Chevelle, a sexy butt and this one has some "junk in the trunk":mrgreen:

I pickled up a set of those for a previous project, paid $100.00. Spent 25 hours per wheel sanding smooth then polishing to a like chrome shine. They turned out real nice.

I run them on the air cooled, need a set of center caps though.
Was the easiest way to upgrade tire size from stock, and still look good doing it. I did have to buy different lug nuts to run the alloys on the old studs though.
I like that a lot. I should have bought in when 'vairs were cheap. :doh:

The Camaro/Corvair family lineage is SO apparent!
