    soon I intend to buy some new tires and join the "J.P.M.W.B." club
    (just painted my wheels black club)
    I might loose my n.f.p.a.a.o.m.f.w card when I do that....shit.....

    Hey LBCD,
    The movies were shot in front of our old house that we bought in 1953 on Caspian Ave. in the Westside of Long Beach.
    I was standing across the street in the 51 Olds clip filming as my brother and friends drove away. Our house is in the background and if you go slowly, my dad's 57 blue Buick Roadmaster is in the garage. On the 58 Impala clip, my dad was standing on the porch taking family movies of the two teenagers going to a wedding.

    We sold the house in 1998 after my mom passed away. Haven't been by to see it ever since. The neighborhood transformation from 1953 to 1998 is/was interesting to say the least. From mild to wild...

    Blues4u- they are the old Coker Commanders vintage 1997.
    Probably unsafe, 0 miles, L78-15 and 5.60-15. Mounted on original '50 Merc rims, rears widened to 7" as I recall. Maybe 6-1/2, that was 20 years ago.

  20. As much as I like rally wheels- I have never gotten in to them on a hot rod. My first choice for Chevy muscle era though. With 67 disc brake "flat" caps or with the derbys. No moons..
    Lots of good looking combos here- usually I like the cap/no ring but some need both.

    The tread design is a work of art...Yokohama?
     
  22. Exactly! I'm continuing on the Japanese theme :). The engine and rear axle are equipped with some Japanese parts as well. Mooneyes is owned by Shige Suganuma from Japan ;)

    Well this is what I have so fare. The tires came with the car. The rims I bought off a guy here on the hamb. And some hub caps I found on Craigslist for 20 bucks for all 4. I don't know about the red maybe with rings it will work.

    I had a set of these on my ''5 Buick Special. Car's gone, but I still have them. I just added the bullet, otherwise the covers are original.

    Love center caps and trim rings.In high school it was popular to buy an early 60's impala ( they were really cheap then) and put on a set of baby moons and trim rings.Instant Hot Rod ! here is a pic of my 32 5/w with 48 ford caps,ribbed trim rings and orig. paint 40 ford wheels with the factory stripes. The 31 roadster was my last car,40 standard caps and ribbed rings.
