    In my November 2009 issue of Street Rodder magazine there is a model A that belongs to Bill Steele of Pennsylvania. It has 16 inch artillery wheels called Spot Lite (or Spot Light). Does anyone know about these wheels? Are they new, or old? Where could I get some? Thanks.

    I have no pictures of the car. I saw it at a cruise last night and spoke to Bill. He told me the wheels were from a military trailer with large lights mounted to it. The wheels are 16 inch with 5 on 4 1/2 bolt pattern. He could not find any hub caps to fit. Had local machine shop make the caps.
