    Oh yea, or dig around in the trunks at junkyards and you will be amazed at what you will find. I found a set of flipper caps in the back of a 53' Buick once.

    Boy, it doesn't seem so long ago that I posted this same request, because I too like to waste ryans bandwith.

    Heres one I found...its a 56' olds fiesta spinner on the 57' wheel. Back in the day you could order spinners and chrome do-dads to customize your hubcaps. I'd love to find some loose spinners to complete a set of these.

    You must change your caps twice a day then, because I saw your boxers and they weren't walking around on their own!:eek:

    Floor===51Ratt was just showing off some spinners he had found in a box in his garage.....think they were heading for the classifieds. If you can't find his post or him, lemme know and I'll get a better spelling....SHOULD I be wrong.:D

    I was told they came off of a '50's travel trailer. They are the same size as a '40 Ford cap but the mounting is different. The recessed parts of the caps will be done in copper leaf.

    I know this isn't what you had in mind,but they are custom made. Spun aluminum over the original center cap.

    Oh great, how about we save more bandwidth money and not post complaints about other peoples posts. I thought the idea of the HAMB was to share ideas and inspiration (words and PICTURES) with fellow rodders.
