    Yep, kind of sickness. I always dug them. Especially the tractor treaded ones. I'm kind of hillbilly.

    When I was an adolescent, in the '50's, the father of a girl I went to school with made fairly large scale models of sprint cars, or whatever they were called then, and used the tires from the ashtrays for his models. I always thought that was pretty cool.........

    Had some over the years. One that I had never seen before was the hard rubber, solid truck tire.

    They seem to go for about $15 around here, but i can't speak as to their rarity or true value. What makes on hotter than another?
     
  21. I have a Firestone deluxe Champion bias ply one, good tread too .......did they make WW ones? I'd love one of those.

    I have been wanting one for awhile now and don't even smoke .They should be a Must Have for the Man Cave .(I hate that term)
     
  26. i have 1. the tire says Firestone steel belted radial 721 , so i'm guessing it's from the 70's~80's?????
