Darn! It won't open for me either today! Worked yesterday. It was a full size transparent Triumph from the 1954 Earls Court Motor Show

I just accidentally came across the most bizarre automotive trivia this boy has heard in a long time.

You know the company Biglots? I believe it's nation wide. It formally was called something else and it assembled some cars for a very well known company, what was that car?

No kidding!

DeLorean

The parent company from which Big Lots was formed bought out the last of the vehicles and parts from the defunct...........

DeLorean Motor Company

Strange but true.

Hubcaps

Ok, Here is a pretty good one, not a well known fact.

The 1956 Chevrolet Belair hubcap was used on another vehicle. What was it?

Hint???????????

Ya'll need a hint or what? 496 knows that the '56 Cameo used the '56 Belair caps. What else did the General use them on? Nolan

No

BB, The '56 Belair Nomad had them, but what else did the General use them on. I'm trying to give hints without giving it away, like I usually do. Nolan
