Smaller tires back on

Here's a recent shot here in Albuquerque. Note the small stock size :( tires and pedestrian hubcaps... I don't think they're even '68 hubcaps...

I'm pretty sure the wheels are '67... we've had a couple of '67 parts cars. Of course, though they still don't all match. A couple have just the black ring in the center, some say Mercury Cougar (or maybe just Cougar).

By the way it's actually purple but you can't see it unless it's wet or the sun is out bright -- just the way I wanted it. It took about 2 months for us to get the color just right (on scrap metal before we painted it). The body and paint guy (Steve of Steve's Kustom Kars on Maui) is EXCELLENT (see my other pictures in the gallery to see the work he had to do). I wish I had a picture of the roof cutout that he replaced!!!! Seamlessly!!! If I were to point exactly at the place where the patch occurred, you wouldn't be able to spot it!
