Thriller Posted July 5, 2015 Share Posted July 5, 2015 I was looking at improvements to Spirit, our 1976 Pace Car Replica. It has always bugged me that it had different size Center Line wheels and tires on. There had been one about two hours drive west of here that has the correct wheels, so I started searching for it again. I was sort of successful - it turns out to be one of these - http://www.junkyardlife.com/2015/02/readers-rides-trio-of-1976-buick-free.html The owner is planning to move, so was open to selling them. I made the first trip Thursday / Friday to bring one home. There were some disappointments, but I now own the wheels I was after. There are also some interior pieces that will improve Spirit. The six center caps I have are in a bit of tough shape, but are better than nothing. Between all of them, I may also be able to fix up the interior fan issue I'm having (one speed on the highest setting - not sure if it's the switch or the fan). Interestingly, all three have red interiors, like Spirit, although there are differences. So, I may now own the largest collection of the 1976 Buick Century Pace Car Replicas, with four of the 1290 produced. I'm looking forward to getting the others home and being able to take a photo with all of them in the same place. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
