The attached Craiglist listing claims the following... "These ACTUAL wheels came off Bill "Grumpy" Jenkins Camaro!"

I dont know how to prove something like that but.... back in the day Cragar alledgedly made 4 special offset 15" rims for the rear of his SuperStock Camaro that were made to center in the middle of the stock wheelwell. They were ordered thru Keystone. Keystone mis delivered 2 of them to a speed shop in Souderton Pa. In the 24 hours it took them to track down the 2 errant wheels they wound up on the back of my car and I refused to sell them back. I still have them. Its a great unprovable story and 2 slightly odd looking Cragars. The chrome didnt hold up any better on them though.

Cool Story Steve. I'd like to see what they look like on the car with that special offset and all. Neat!

 best I can do on that I think is the side shot picture of a picture in my thread below this one. I dont know if a back end shot exists. The side shot was taken in 83 in the front yard before I took it apart. I will stick a picture of the actual wheels in here sometime this weekend if I get them dug out .
