staying with that theme, I don't think this ended well  :( snowy roads played into it I think.

What are the wheels on the rear of the Camaro ?

I think those are Fenton Hawks. Possibly a later Keystone Knockoff. Hard to tell for sure, picture get grainy when you zoom in.

That wheel looks good, but the wheel on the Camaro looks like the spokes come to a point at the center.

Looks to be a pre-production prototype ? no wheel covers or trim rings & centre caps.

'67 'vert at the ski hill, look to be the same wheels on the rear as in my previous post #166 on the crashed car ?

From that angle it's hard to tell definitively, but it could very well be a match. The center cap does look larger though which might fill the gap to match the wheel in post 168 better. How weird to find those two pics of cars with that type wheel on the rear and what looks like black wheels on the front! It would not be as ironic if they were TT's or Cragar's.

Fenton also made a Super Shark which had a slightly different center. Either way I think they are some version of a Fenton wheel.

Also similar to drag mags or Indy 500's.
