Hossfly, you're welcome to come and visit me anytime. you know that!

as much as those wheels look good and cleaned and polished they would look better, a set of those Chevy 5 slot Ralley rims with the factory trim rings and center caps would look fantastic on that truck!

and i remember Ed Roth and some of his cars from years ago. my father use to take my brother and to different car shows many, many years ago and i have seen some of his vehicles. very cool cars! yeah Rat Finks!
