Interesting. It looks like it was outside with the wheels off. I wonder what the story is behind it and if the owner is on here or one of the mailing lists.

Do you know where that was?

Keep dreaming. Try 14x5.

Odd that they're laying out in front of the car like that though... :?

Stamping on the wheels say 5.5Jx14x41. It seems to indicate a 5.5" wheel. Or am I reading it wrong. I'll take a pic later.

Just think, we thought our cars were sleepers already... imagine dropping a drive train in that thing and blowing the doors off of newer V8 pony cars! :twisted:
