Unlike most cruisers I see on auto transports this one isn't leaving for good.
Our buddy is home. Drove him to work this morning. Glad the heater works! (40 degrees feels cold to a Phoenician!)
Costco threw on the new wheels for me and I banged on the hubcaps. Even with the taps prebent it was a bitch to get on. Hopefully that means they are nice and secure.
Indeed! I felt like I was going to break a finger as I was trying to get them on. I did a bit of pre-bending to make it possible, but they are sure on there good now!Looking good. If you have stock wheels with hub cap tabs they will be hard to install the caps. Some bend the tabs but I never have. You see movies with chase scene where a hub cap going flying on a corner. Something you never have to worry about with these.
I'm sure it will all be houses in another few years, but I sure hope it's not. Great for feeling away from town right near it! Thankfully the whole commute for me is about 9 miles. Learned that lesson the hard way after having a sometimes 2 hour commute from Huntington Beach out to Icon Vehicle Dynamics in Corona. Ugh, I have nightmares about that one!!My kind of office. Hope your commute is just as short.
That's great news, but not surprising. It's a great story and well told.
Great story Tim. I think you summed up alot our dreams, finding a vintage cruiser out in no man's land and bringing it home. I read the story twice
