RE: December 2011 Feature Car


Mike - In the top photo the car has the dog dish hubcaps, but the other photo's have the full disc 6 spoke hubcaps.   Do you have both sets?

YES I HAVE BOTH SETS. I HAVE ANOTHER SET OF RIMS THAT I WILL PAINT GREEN SO I CAN CHANGE BACK AND FORTH. MY PREFERENCE IS THE DOG DISH CAPS.

I'm trying to remember, your 6 spoke hubcaps have black centers with red lettering.  I think it was a mid-year change to red centers with black lettering.  If you're looking for a decent set of red centers with black lettering I could possibly point you in the right direction.

Re the dog dish hubcaps, there are 2 variations.   One says PONTIAC on opposing sides, and the other one says PONTIAC MOTOR DIVISION around the center.  The PMD ones are reproduced, but I don't think the Pontiac ones are.    My 454 Laurentian sports the PONTIAC ones.

I thought that "Pontiac Motor Division" or "PMD" is an American issued part for this era.

THEY COULD VERY WELL BE DARRYL, I BOUGHT THESE OFF A MEMBER. HE SAID THEY WERE REMOVED FROM A CAR WHEN NEW AND STASHED AWAY. I DIDN'T ASK WHAT THEY CAME OFF OF. THEY ARE MINT AND CAME WRAPPED IN OLD 196? NEWSPAPER.

I believe they were used in Canada as well as the USA.  Likely same idea as the stock hubcaps on my old 70 Parisienne, the lucite center said Pontiac Motor Division, even though the car was built by GM Canada.

 I'm celebrating your car  and you  !!    

Thanks for the photoshop guys!!  The wheels and tires are great..  

I like the old style with lots of bling (chrome) 

The nice thing about wheels and tires is mixing them up  like shoes lol

Congrats Mike on the feature car ! This car is for real as Mike stopped over with it one day and wow, I was impressed with the originality of this survivor car. The interior is just showroom and the rest of the car is very very nice. Great snag there Mike !
