    Betties new shoes, went to pate not gonna buy much just look around and talk to some old friends. But a funny thing happened as I was walking in the gate a guy was there sellling some wheels and tires and I ask how much and he said 750, which was a good deal for new rims tires and hub caps. He said they were on his 32 4 door then he decided to change them for somting else they still had the stickers on the tires. I could not help myself I ask him would he take 700 he said I guess so now Bettie has new shoes everyone says they like these better than the americans and cheeter slicks they do ride better but that little 347 ford will burn them for blocks opps !! which one do you like best slicks or bais plys ? sure changes the look !!

    It's kind of amazing how by just changing the wheels & tires you can change the era that the car fits into. I think it kicks ass either way.

    You need both, as it changes the whole character with just a wheel swap.
    What's with the exhaust pipe though?
