    Id run with the original wheel. But I would loose the ugly center cone! Im not really a T Bird guy, so I never noticed how bad that looked before. Looks like a unicorn "horn"! haha!
    So, ace the center cone and find a horn button that fits from a different car. Or find something totally unique and off the wall, or "left of center" that will work. *poof* Custom wheel man!!

    On another car, yes. A period perfect lowrider. This one needs to follow the rest of the cars' theme/era.

    Chain steering wheels are for Lowriders... not Hot Rods
     
  7. OK I was wrong about the wheel being a 3 spoke, but it wouldn't be too hard to do away or to rework that horn button so it didn't look like an early air bag.

    Everyone laughed when I first wrapped my steering wheel with bacon strips.

    Now when they ride with me they all say,

    What smells like bacon ?

    With some 14"Cragars or Zenith Wires with some white drums & a matalic BROWN or Blue paint job, and the chrome chain steering wheel will look real good.

    I grew up BROWN in L.A. in the 70s & 80's, my childhood, & that shit brings me back. I could dig it. Before I got my 68 chevelle, I use to think all those 60's & 70's chevy's were all lowriders.
