Well I have the invoice for them, but they were long gone. Who know with what his son is finding in the basement, they may turn up. He has already found a few goodies for me.
*if they did turn up, they would be a display piece... :)

I remember when a CHP gave me a fix it ticket back in 1969 that included a requirement to put mud flaps on simply because I went to G series tires in back. So I bought a set of these same flaps but just used the metal part. Technically the tire exposure did not meet Vehicle code requirements at the time, and this officer was known for being very nit-picky about stuff like that. Seems like nowadays the constables have better things to do than look for VC violations that are not a obvious safety issue. BTW the flaps did not stay on long after follow up inspection.
