    At the Livermore Nostalgia Show last month, I stopped to study this '40 Ford. The owner of this five window was eager to say the wheels are real magnesium wheels. He also pointed out welting was not used between the fenders and body.

    Still love that RPU. Wasn't much of a fan of Halibrands till I saw them on this Dean's ride. Hell, a sure-fire way of making me like something is put it on this pickup haha.

  13. dean, what was the deal with mismatched wheels? i ways thought it was cool, but, always wondered how it started. my thinking is, it was to mimick dragsters at the time?
