I think I'm going for the poorboys but please chime in.
The poverty 'caps are cool, but Fiestas are cooler. There's something about an Olds with '56 Fiesta spinners that just looks right to my fading eyes.
Damn fine 88 you've got there!
Another vote for Fiestas here.
Love the car!!
The Fiesta`s make the car look stock unless you buy wide whitewalls. If you leave the car as is, I like the dog dishes, Never thought I`d say that.
fiestas would be the better choice but way to expensive, i like the dog dish caps on it........................john
dog dish I like the look
i love fiestas!!! had two of them on one side of my shoebox years ago!
Dog dish look tougher with the tires you have.
I vote for Fiestas. You can pick 'em up fairly cheap.
I like the dog dish,they would have been what a 2-door post came with from the factory I do believe...
the dog dishes were in the trunk when I bought it.
Man is this 56 Olds night or what.
I like the wide, deep steel wheels on the car! I think if it was mine I'd paint the wheels body color (turquoise), add some wide-whitewall radials and use the dog dish hubcaps. It's got a great stance so nobody is going to mistake it for a stocker.
I like the dog dishes or even some spider caps
I like the dog dish caps. You have a very nice looking ride there. I love the 55-56 Olds and Buick 2 drs sedans. I like the performance look and not the 50s custom look that the Fiestas give it.
My thoughts exactly.
I vote for the dog dish but the rims need painted turquoise.
Fiestas would be my first choice, but, yeah, they're expensive and need wider whitewalls.
The dog dish hubcaps are kinda cool and I wonder what they'd look like on chrome steelies. That combo would work well with the narrow wws.
Dog dish make the stance of the car pop out better but spider caps would look good too.
56 Olds Starfire's.I like the Kustom look.
Dog dishes......no question.
Dog dish !
poverty caps....give your wheels some new , non-flat blk paint and add on some trim rings
looks great either way and even better in person.
Dog dishes it is!
I like the dog dishes, and I love your Olds!
as the car sits right now i think the fiestas would be the way to go if you had WWW on there but since you dont, id go poverty caps. the simple look begs your eyes to look more at the car and overall is a nice package.
hell, even with WWW you might wanna go with poverty caps
Well, those aren't fiestas, they're '54-'55 Olds hubcaps. The Fiesta had a tri-bar design in the middle. I vote for the dog dish! Love the Olds. by the way. Makes me miss my '54!
I have some original Olds Hub Caps hanging on my garage wall. These mount to the center of the Oldsmobile wheel.
If you're not aware of it, there is a photoshop thread here with a bunch of very talented artists who can enhance one of your photos to have the features you'd like to see. All you've got to do is provide them with a photo...and say "please".
Being a poor collage student(at 44) and totally broke, I'm dealing with things I have.
I would love a set of chrome steelies, but I have 4 new tires On 4 straight truck rally's, and they fit the car perfectly ( clearance-wise ).
If I painted them Turquoise, they would scream "truck ralleys" which is why they are black( they have those little square holes).
