Well in some of his older auctions he had a trailer full of vintage wheels. I talked to him on the phone and he is pretty knowledgable, but yes he does ask a lot on ebay. Outside of ebay he will come down a little.

In the early 70's [71-73] I worked at Murray Auto Supply in Miami while I was in school at Univ of Miami. I purchased the ex-Vince Gimondo Trans Am Camaro at that time ...directly from Vince. Later in 1971 I was given a set of ARE T-70 15x8" wheels directly from American Racing. After 2 qualifying sessions at the SCCA Paul Whiteman National Race the centers had 3 cracked spokes....we never used that set of wheels again. Once again, they were FREE but we sold them right way [conveniently] and bought a second set from Vince/Hank Thorp.. I witnessed many sets of T-70s have problems will I was in TA and IMSA competition.

The T70s are similar to the '60s straight spoke Americans but with the smaller '70s style center cap, as shown on the left in the photo below.
I can't recall seeing T70s being run on a Trans-Am car. Jerry, are you meaning to say you ran the 200-S style of wheel?

Jerry, are these the type you are referring to?

Hopefully I've successfully posted images of the front and back of the TA70 six spokes AR wheels below...

Great story and nice bit of further information, Steve. Do the other wheels have the same misspelling of Frank Bryan's last name or was it just on the one?

Hi Jon, no, the other two have the correct spelling, only that one is spelt incorrectly. Must have been a Friday afternoon special.....or maybe a Monday morning special.

Thanks for the clarification, Steve. Good to know they weren't all screwed up.  Wink
