Kelsey Hayes (I think I spelt it correctly) were a reputable wheel making company. I'd like your scrap pile to be at my place.

Well Ill be damned,and here I was using a set as planters and a boat anchor.Actually I found two nice ones at an incredibly cheap price so I just closed the deal on two more at the going price.They are a pressed wire,not welded like a ford wheel..IMO they look better than Ford wheels too

Again Thanks Guys...I did not know anyone was making a 19" radial. I think that solves my problem for now.

When I was a kid people put on 4.5 X 16
solid wheels because they were easier to clean & looked more modern.

Default let people sit in car

I was not at this event but a club member told me about this. Our club has a cruise in on the first Saturday of every month year around. My friend who has a 29 Standard Coupe was at the cruise in with his rumble seat open for display. He was away from car when a 300 plus pound women climbed in his rumble seat without his permission. It took 3 men to get her out. He was lucky as he could find no damage. I let adults and children sit in my 29 Special Coupe as long as I am around and enjoy answering.questions.
