"86 PA Convert Gets New Jewlery

"Restoring" a 1980's car can get pretty painful and frustrating. I am early on the curve at the depth of reconditioning with my convertible. Twenty years from now specific parts, electronic parts, and the general increased consumption of high fructose corn sirup products is going to make for real challenges for the old car leagues.

This is the extent I am writing about:

Today we had a bright spot, though. My Ebay automatic search landed me a set of boxed NOS aluminum wheels for the car:

Just like the originals:

I was going to have a mobile wheel service come in and refinish my original wheels when I mounted new tires. I got these for $100 each from Brian at his Neatcollectibles Ebay store. A pretty good deal. They will be well cared for for the next 30 or 40 years.

That is quite the score Bernie. Wow! Can't recall ever seeing a new set of those, even back in 1986!

Thanks, John. It is going to be up there with the $17 Riviera wood wheel horn bar I bought in 1979. I think it was the last NOS one on the factory shelf.
