I went to the March Meet nostalgia drags this week end. Great show - 16 car fields in all categories and records falling. And the first Funny Car show in nostalgia racing!
Touring the vendors row I found a GREAT little store for all of those hard to solve lug nut problems we run into. There is a new store in So. Cal that specializes in lug nuts! They have EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING!! All the usual stock and mag lug nuts, Several different bullet topped nuts I have never seen before, two different types of lug nut that look exactly like a deep 1/2" socket that use a special 'bolt head' installation tool, nuts that look like the metal end of a shot gun shell, and on and on and on. There must have been over 100 bins of different lug nuts. Best part is their price was only $1 each for the most expensive ones! I can't even get stock lug nuts for that price at my auto parts store.
Oh, and for you guys running nostalgic wheels, Cragar,ETs, and others with the Uni-Lug universal bolt pattern washers, they carry every type of those too. Price was $0.25 each as I recall!!
