  • Got it!!!

    If you all remember the post I made about being at Meighers a short while back, when they just stocked the diecast shelves, and I was "FLAT BROKE"... This Dart was one that I wanted badly, but had to leave it. Found this one at another Meijer store today... LOVE it!!!

    Good for you Steve! Don't you love those dog dishes? I wish Auto World could sell wheels as Greenlight does.
    Due to the recent budget cuts,
    the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil, plus the
    current state of the economy, the light at the end
    of the tunnel has been turned off.

            Absolutely Daniel.. I have always loved the dog dish caps. I bought a set of chrome reverse for my first car, my 68 Stang. I couldn't afford Cragars back then. I also bought a set of the dog dish caps. They looked just like on this Dart. Ole' Ding~Bat me painted the chrome reverse black and put the dog dish caps back on because it gave it a meaner look, but I liked the look of the dog dish on the chrome reverse too. Could never make up my mind. I spent several week ends painting wheels and the next removing the black paint off the chrome rims. The dog dishes always stayed on though...

                I can't afford Cragers now lol. I have American Muscle rims which are knock-offs.

                  Oh heck yeah Daniel. I can't believe Cragars are $250 to $300 bucks each now. I had bought a set of skinny chrome reverse at first and if I remember correctly they were about $20 bucks each back then. I do remember back in the 70s the Cragar S/Ss were around $50 to $75 bucks each. I took a part time job as a dish washer in the evening hours, after my day job in a Holiday Inn. My checks averaged about $62 dollars each week. from there. It took me almost 6 weeks of scrubbing dishes, pots and pans to afford a nice set of Cragars for my 68 Mustang. And then about another $60 bucks to have them mounted. I wouldn't "EVEN" consider those prices today, although I still think they are the best looking custom wheel to ever roll the highways!!!

                    Thats a great looking casting and colour too! I really need to come over to the States with an empty suitcase one day and stock up on Autoworld quality die cast. If I can find them here through a speciality online shop they cost me around 12 bucks and up each, and still hard to find the ones I really want!
