    Steering wheel ID needed

    Not a Nardi Classico, the slots in the spokes in a real Nardi are tapered and the spokes and center ring that hides the bolt heads are polished. The adaptor shape is typical of a Momo, Nardi is smooth and tapered front to rear, I would guess its a Momo copy of the Nardi Classico woodrim.

    Auto Transport

    Get dates, right, but not consummate dates, that's where the station wagon came in. Remember those, the old time SUVs?

    Auto Transport

    Absolutely right, should have included that info, transport is from Baton Rouge, LA to Ft Collins or Loveland, CO. And its not a coupe, buying an old T Bird for the wife to enjoy the classic car world. Finally found an old car she likes!! Actually my family had a 57 Coral sand Thunderbird when I...

    Auto Transport

    Once again here's someone looking for auto transport other than what one finds on the Transport Reviews website. Like to find someone other than a broker, dislike dealing with them. Appreciate any recommendations for an independently owned transport company, not a broker. If you like you can...

    73 CS ebay

    Seller tells me he is going to store it over the winter and restore it in the spring, then asking in the $50k range. He must have some very cheap sources of restoration work, or is doing it himself given all that needs to be done.

    so who does excellent leather covered steering wheels?

    I'll second that, Gunn is a high volume sweat shop operation, churning out a one style shift boot blob that bears no resemblance to an original E9 shift boot, no matter what you order.

    so who does excellent leather covered steering wheels?

    Its Leatherworks.com, charged me $165 for a 380 Petri and turn around was less than a week. However he only uses embossed or fake grain leather, not the natural leather grain as it comes off the cow. That's what Petri used and what I feel is worth a great deal more for the look and feel that is...

    Interesting CS on ebay

    I wonder if the seller got the message from the inspection that you have to have the vin on the firewall to make the car legitimate since he took the auction down. Or perhaps someone without that knowledge made him an off ebay offer. Wasn't me.

    Interesting CS on ebay

    I am the one who had a friend inspect the car, and I actually got the seller to talk briefly on the phone. He said the process is taking too much of his time so getting info directly from him has been very difficult. His own words were it was a NY car and it had a lot of rust. They did not...
