    Thats it. This looks like my aunts car that she had in the late 60's early 70's. Exept for the wheels.
    I will by getting at least 1 of these when they come out.

  11. dustym added a post in a topic What kit were these steelies from ?   

    These are from the 70 LT-1/ZR-1 AMT Corvette. To build a stock ZR-1 it needs these and the radio delete decal.

    Have some of you ever seen the car movies of the 60's and 70's? Times havent changed that much, just the cars.

    Back when I was driving a tow truck, I had a call for a stolen recovery. I show up to a 4 runner that was partially in the weeds, with no front wheels and a few other missing stuff. Sheriff has me sign papers and takes off, and I didnt look at them. I get to the back of vehicle and the back wheel werent there and either was the axles.

    So any way i was to load up and take to Magic Toyota where it was stolen from while in for repair. I get there and they refused the vehicle, saying it was more damaged then they were led to believe. I take back to our tow yard, and the owner shows up to see his car, and was visably upset. This vehicle then just sits around for week while the insurance battles it out, then the dealership says they are not responsible for theft or damages while on thier lot. It is right on the work order that every customer signs when they drop off cars for almost all repair shops in our area. The owners insurance company gets out of paying, and I was never clear on that, so we tow it to a 4x4 junk yard and they give the owner some money for it. The money he got wasnt even close to what he owed on it, so he did get kinda screwed on the deal.

    About a year or so after I left the tow company, the owner of the vehicle trys to sue the tow company because of the police report. He thought I stole the parts the sheriff didnt itemize on the report.

    So anyway, in Washington state you gotta watch what you sign for when you leave your property in the hands of others.
