    I know where not to go!!
    Yesterday I stopped at a hub cap place off I-70 just across the West Virginia state line into Pennsylvania and was meet by this old guy (my age I'd guess) he asked if he could help me and I said I'd like to look at old caps (something like that) he said "I don't do tours" I said you do money don't you? Then I turned around and got into my truck and drove off.
    Sometimes these old guys are jerks!

    When I bought mine for The 51 Merc I had I managed to buy them one or two at a time and saved a bit of money over full sets at the Portland swap meet. It took a while though. I wish I would have saved them back and not let them go with the Merc as the guy who has it runs mags on it and has the caps on a 56 Chev two door post. Time to find a nice set of decent looking Chev caps and go trade I think.

    Your roadster kicks ass!

    That being said, don't put '57 Caddys on it...

    Hubcaps don't "bite" too well into chrome wheels. You'll be better off finding another set of wheels that are painted so they can grip. Nice roadster!
