    finding rims in good condition is difficult. I bought 6 rims to get 2 ok and 2 limits. If I lived in the US, I could make the sweet map and choose good rims. Unfortunately I live in France and I can only buy at blind ...

    I live in Auvergne, Brioude. I'm 40 miles from Clermont Ferrand. Without knowing it you all know this city. It is the cradle of Michelin. It is also the mythical circuit of Charade, which is for me the most beautiful natural circuit of the world. Unfortunately because of environmentalists there is almost no organized race .....

    I find SCTA stikers but not waterslide. I am looking for an SCTA approved old style logo.

    For my english it is necessary to thank the automatic translator !!!!!!

    Cool! I have been to Clermont Ferrand to the Michelin facility. That is a beautiful area. I am in charge of the Ford GT racing team, so I will be in LeMans again this June. Good luck with the hot rod!

    We are all mechanical enthusiasts. Personally I love everything that has an engine. For me the hot rodding is the oldest and most popular root of sports passion, of mechanical and attractive modification of automotive world.
    I search stickers type "waterslide paper". Old style salt flats racing.
    Merci Bored&Stroked!
