A bit OT but, does anyone know what brand of wheels these are on this car? I dont think they are made anymore, but I dont know what they are called so I cant do an ebay search to hopefully find a used set. Thanks in advance.

To me they look like " Champ 500 's " with three ear spinners. Made by Centerline.

Just my .02

I'd lose the flames. It's just a bit TOO much for the car, at least for me.

As for the rest of the car, I think it's pretty slick myself. I'd be terrified to drive it in case I hit a bump and cracked any of that beautiful glasswork, but I myself think it's a very sharp ride.

Yeah I just posted over there with links to the work cody did when he owned it. Might help the sale although the post there said the hood flew off during a test drive and cracked the hood & windshield.

Personally, if I were to buy it, I'd cut all that fibreglass stuff off as its not my taste. I like the hood though so I'd probably keep that if it were repairable.

I'd also love to see some interior shots of the engine compartment as I wonder how hacked that is. I'd hope it'd be original so that it could be de-tunerified.

Doesn't show that much. Need to see from the underside to see how those front fenders and nose are connected to the rest of the car and inner fenders.
