And the two terms have been interchangeable in popular usage for as long as I can remember and everybody seems to know what is being talked about regardless which term is being used. Oh, as long as we're being pedantic; "weather" is what's happening outside, the term you're looking for is "whether", a much graver error than "hubcap/wheel cover".
Most, if not all, of the "Rides" kits had some, um, "interesting" features. The 65 Ford and the 55 Nomad had lowered suspensions achieved by "bending" the rear axles. The 40 Ford Sedan Delivery; well, you can see the box art. Basically, the whole series is, um, fubar, but good for parts.
