Had a nice addition to the car today. An original USA-1 plate with the cardboard backing. Huge thanks goes out to Kasey, Chris and Nuge. Great friends.

Picked up a set of Cragar GTs a few months back and a year or so ago I snagged some MT Indy Profile redlines.  This morning I mounted them up and took it for a short drive over to my favorite photo background spot.  Good to get her out as its been around 7 months.  Im pretty happy with the look.

Looks period correct, but definitely different than the Cragar mags. Hard to go wrong with a great car like that. Glad you got to take it out. Are those bias ply?

Thanks.  That is the stamped number for either the body tub or the floor.  Can't remember exactly which.

Thanks guys.  I am really diggin' the new look.

As for the Red Z.  Well its been sllllllllllllloooooooooooooooww.  I took in another small project for a buddy/customer.  I did make a few purchases and some horsetrading over the last year or so.  Got a pair of 15x4 Keystone Kustomags (not to be confused with Keystone Klassics) and a little intake with 2 carbs.

Ran across a vintage photo of the 68 that I havent seen before.  Photod are my parents and my older brother and sister.  Around the fall of 68.

Close.  Cragar GTs were bought because it was a good deal.  Still on the lookout for a good set of Kustomags in 14x6.

I may know where there are some 14" keystones..  My wife bought a set for a car she had as a kid that migrated to father in laws 65 GTO many years ago & I think they are still around somewhere. Now as to the condition??  :-\ let me do some looking.
