    image.png image.jpeg image.png Am I seeing the start of Pre-War influenced hot rods becoming more popular? I'm used to seeing hot rods with 16" Ford 35 wire wheels, but lately more and more are sporting the larger diameter wires of earlier years.
    How about posting some pics of A's with the larger wheels.
    Please tell us the wheel diameter on pics you post......if you know.

    IMG_0319.JPG Great thread a boner. I love the wicked chopped Tudor in your first post. I believe it was built by a guy on here in Oregon, Elmitcheristo. I dont see him on here anymore but here is a link to his album page. He has built lots of cars this style. Very cool.

    The above pic is one of his cars that I saw at Billetproof WA a few years ago. Loved it. 16" wires on the coupe I think.
