    I drug this old Chevy out of a field in Eastern Washington, it narrowly missed a major forest fire a week ago. Now that its in the big city, first plan is to get it rolling, stopping and driving well. There is some very minor rust in the floor that needs to be dealt with. The car still has its original two tone sunburned green paint. The plan is to just make it a reliable daily driver, I will drop it but not too low, add disc brakes and steel wheels with whitewalls.

    For now I am just going to leave them alone, there is a hornet nest in that door so some evicting will be needed. I had a 64 Impala with a bullet hole above the windshield and left it alone.

    I may be selling them to help pay for the initial cost of the car. They are 14" ETs and are in near perfect shape. If they clear the brakes on my ElCamino I may keep them. The front and rears don't match, curved spokes on the front and pointed ones on the rear. They look good on this car "Gasser look" but not right for what I am going to do.
