I know that's getting way ahead of the game, but I keep seeing wires.

If you manage to convince me to go with *any* whitewall at all, that will be the day that the dead rise from their graves

Oh, by the way, the wheels are 400mm. That's a little over 15". That's why the tires say "165 - 400"

Quick quiz: how many wiper blades does it take to change them on a Flaminia Sedan?

I'm not so sure about the knock off. I see a large central hex nut. A knock off is too "sporty" for this elegant babe.

sorry..yes the big nut.....i only said knockoff cause well even the big nut is still a knockoff just "wingless"

and screw that 400 crap...you need REAL rubber under it or do you want it to be like your fetta "was"

Hate to say it, but those front turn signals are going to have to go too. They won't fit with the new front treatment.

**** I wish we hadn't stopped at that gas station. I know we're seeing the same dashing front treatment - it got in my head when we were looking at her while filling up the truck.

No, no, I was just clearing up the mystery with nomenclature. Oh, yeah, she needs some grip! Nothing outrageous - I don't anticipate dancing the dance in the twistys like my fetta was the other night, but I do want something modern and reasonably tossable. You know, so that I can steer away from some fool on the freeway.

Yeah, if we get the stock bumper gone, the nose tightened up, and the headlights frenched, there is no way those things would fit.
