Yeah, I love the Trans Am look too. 18x8 front and 18x10 rear for my ride. I had a great experience working with Scott as it was the first time I had order custom back spacing.

Well I've been trying to find some tires to mount on my wheels when they arrive so I can move the car around easier once it comes off the rotisserie. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find any used ones to fit due to the size. I attended an auction last weekend that included some Continental race rains that would work and after sitting there for 6 hours waiting for them to hit the block they ended up selling for $130 each but you had to buy the whole lot of 12 tires. Just a little too much for tires that I don't "need". Anyhow I found brand new ones direct from hoosier for $94/each, freight included so when my new wheels show up this week I'll get them mounted. Guess I need to get the rotisserie work done so I can get this thing on the ground.

Good news and bad news: The new LT3's were waiting on me when I got home Woohoo! The bad news: on it's initial use yesterday my brand new lift emitted MASSIVE quantities of magic smoke from the motor. Booo! New motor/pump on the way and taking the LT3's and Continentals to Big O to get them mounted and balanced. Pictures forthcoming.

I ordered them from my local dealer website but don't see them any more, this is the corporate website showing them for $5 each more.

Sorry, no pics today but I did want to give a shout out to Moser Engineering. I took off last thursday to run up to ypsilanti to pick up a complete tri-power for my Galaxie project. For reasons I'm too lazy to go into I wanted to redrill the axles in my versailles rearend to accept chevy 4 3/4" bolt circle wheels.


The night before I looked on the map to set up the route to ypsilanti and noticed that Moser's office wasn't too far off the track so at the last minute loaded up the axles and rotors intent on dropping them off on the way. We arrived at Moser around 9 a.m. and I talked to the service manager and he asked me if was just going to hang around the shop until they were done or if I would be back to pick them up later that day! I fully expected "2 to 3 weeks" and really hadn't planned on returning that day and told him I wasn't sure we'd be able to make it back by quitting time. He said no sweat and told me where they would leave my parts in case I didn't make it back. I told him that I didn't want any special treatment to meet my schedule and he said since I went to the trouble of delivering them personally he'd make sure they were ready for me when we got back.


So big shout out to Moser for going out of the way, something that is truly rare in today's world
