See? Now not only do I like big wheels but am a troll of some sort. Its like quicksand. I don't expect you to understand and I got nothing against you. Except I could build the Eiffel Tower, nobody would care. Post a picture of non-stock wheel diameter on a hot rod website and its whoa whoa whoa. Does not make sense.

I was only trying to show what a factory purple GTO looks like, but here I sit feeling like a treed animal surrounded by ferocious dogs because the dogs think I like a car with big wheels. I said 17" because past experience has led me to believe rodders tolerate 17s. I just want the exclamations over wheel size in reactions to my posts to stop. I do not ever control wheel size selection on anything. I can't make paint cheaper, I can't stop hunger, I can't build a pyramid. I can't control wheel size. Thats all.

Nobody is willing to let it be, though. And I don't understand why my life has to be this way. But thats how it is. I could not find a picture of that car with tire size legible but I spent some time trying. Why? In an effort to respond politely. The only way to solve my problem is to never post another picture with a wheel in it. Best I can do. Say I have a lack of serenity. Don't say I like big wheels. I don't know if I do or not, its a mental taboo not to be given thought.

Whoa. I will try not to reply to your posts.

idrivejunk Replaced GTP engine mount with the one I took out 75-80K miles ago. Napa is closed on Sunday. The wheels are too big on this car, too. 17s. Left wheel on while doing this.

Yes, that does answer my questions. I would personally like it if it has factory size wheels but to each is own. If you saw my 55 you would probably agree that I also drive junk. I just took a pic of the front for you. Towards the rear is how the rest of it looks. I have what are probably the cheapest Cragers made on it, but I like them and you are allowed to make fun of them. They couldn't be very popular because they discontinued them about 2 years ago. Some people put wheels like mine on their trailers.

hot in the garage

Man sometimes it gets so hot in the garage a fan will not help. I had a old portable AC/heat 12000 btu about 7 year old. Garage is 25x25 8 feet ceiling with a 2nd lever. So I give it a try even though this unit is a little small for the room size. Temp in the garage 96 AC on took about 1.5 hours temp 78 base on the ready on the AC unit. Bot fills like about 75. So me happy Water is draining a cat litter bucket 4 gal will drill a hole through wall later for on.



No money spent I had all the parts.

What I wish is that you imagine them the size you want them to be. Does that answer your questions?

Second one didn't cool well so took advantage of the cool guarantee.
Third from a different company, Summit's website was wrong and I received the wrong radiator. Talked to a nice guy at summit, he's working on his 55 also. 4th radiator will ship monday.

I missed one that had the brackets welded on wrong, so I'm going on my 5th rad.
