    Just wondering how many guys out there are running dog dish caps on their cars? I know they weren't "cool" back in the day, but I think they look bad ass in 2012. Post pics if you got 'em.

    Ran them on my stock '66 Studebaker Wagonaire.
    They looked great, and the ladies loved them.

    I run them on my '69 but IMHO they look good on anything from a Model A to a 60's Musclecar.

    50's and 60's cars I think look best with just simple small caps, no rings.. Mags are just overdone, however I like some of them too.......

  16. 15 inch black steelies with 41 Ford caps and trim rings. I never get tired of looking at them. Although I do change out the caps for baby moons every now and then. As in these pics. The 41 caps are in my Avatar.

    Here is mine, a 1965 Buick Special Stationwagon. In the process of being put back on the road. I'm going to be repairing rust around the quarter windows and maybe painting it. :D

    I love "Dog Dishes" and use 'em on almost all of my projects.

    Here's a huge similarity, the 64 Buick dog-dishes are the same as the 64 Impala/Bel Air/Biscayne dog-dishes. Have a look: [​IMG]
