    I have a 69 Nova that I bought. It had Centerlines on it which I guess were ok, but I always wanted some Rally wheels for it. Finally did it this past weekend. The car looks worlds better in my opinion :wiggle:

    The car was covered in pollen :hs:

    Yup, looks way better.

    They do make centerlines in that style though, assuming you prefer them. I have a set on my Z.

    Thanks

    These I just got off some guy on craigslist. They are wheel vintiques 15's . I just much prefer tires that are similar size as opposed to wides in the back and pizza cutters in the front :bigthumb:

    Personally I think the centerlines made the car look trashy; those rally wheels are 1000x better :cool:

    Same here. Not a bow tie guy but always loved the look of the rally rims.

    I sold the car to my older brother, and he took it out to his local track. The car ran 8.50's in the 1/8th mile. (Needs a bigger cam :hs:) But here are some pics
