    I say do whatever you want. It's Your car, your MONEY! So don't ask like you need permission from your mother or someone, just do it. And if you mix eras/periods a little, so what, IT'S NOT THE 50S ANYMORE, it's 2010!

    I built this 61 and sold it to a friend. The cragars and ww´s were not my choice of wheels but I think they look good on the 61. Feel free to have your own opinion

    56Butler building a period correct car has nothing to do with OCC but your cluelessness does.

    AHHH, now that is good reading right there.

    Cars are fun but this is what I tune in for more often than not.
     
  9. yes, do it, it looks great and like some say, it is your car...I think cars with black walls and hubcaps, look like crap, so there, to those guys that do that !!!:rolleyes::rolleyes:
     
  10. Poncho, very nice looking rides you have there. Looks great on both.
     
  11. Everything has it's place.If I had a restored mid sixties musclecar it would be black rims and hubcaps.....
     
  12. i dont think the combo is bad on the right car. ie: wagon or early 60's car. IMO
     
  13. Cragar SS and blackwalls period. No whitewalls and no white letters. MAYBE redlines on certain cars.
     
  14. Cragar SS's, and Supremes do NOT look good w/fat whites. Not opinion, FACT

  16. IL GIMMI, and everyone else who gets all worked up over things like this- this picture might very well make your head explode- two cars with Cragar wheels and white walls in the same place at the same time.:p:D

    (Nads' Capri and my Mercury at NSRA Tampa)

    First off who said I'm worked up and are you smoking or what. We're talking about WW's. Running piners (skinny whites) on Cragars or Supremes is they way it should be done. Maybe read the thread your posting in.

  20. No, not smoking, but I am soaking in Lortab and Soma:D

    BTW, I swear. in the name of all that is good and holy, that Nads is running Cragar SS.

    It's missing the fifth spoke, IF you're talking about the one in your picture.:D

    PS. Blackwalls with SS would be my choice.
     

  23. Hahaha, 4 spokes, but still a genuine 13" Cragar SS. They are beyond rare, and no longer made by Cragar.

    I considered Cragar ss wheels on my 62 Mercury, but went with supremes instead. After seeing Poncho's impala here, I kind of wished I went with cragars.
