    This is my 1968 Plymouth Road Runner. I bought it 2.5 years ago and am just now completing work on it. I built the car to run in the Silver State Classic, but to also have street manners and be capable of being driven every day.

    Thanks. I drove it last summer without a horn, windshield wipers, heater/defroster, and the trunk wasn't waterproofed. To make it a daily driver I had to correct all of these problems. I've done all that plus I installed power steering and a 5-speed OD transmission. The only days I won't drive it will be the ones with snow on the ground. I've got a winter truck to handle that.

    They are Ford Bullitt Mustang wheels. Ford and Mopar share the same bolt pattern. I bought a 13" front disc brake kit that utilizes the Bullitt's. You can't get a factory-quality 17x8 aluminum wheel anywhere else for the money.
