    My cockatiel loves popcorn also. I also got my front disc brake conversion kit. I also got a quote for 4 tires for the '61 $400.00 for all 4 I am going to get quotes other tire shops also and compare prices. I decided to get them locally to save money and get the portal walls from Lucas classic tire

    These are the pre- membership questions for my face book group 1961 Plymouth fury. I pending member answered yes on all questions so I sent him a message telling him that is not the answer I am looking for so I declined him.

    More progress. The poly 318 was over hauled . I had to have the Aero wheel redone but the rule is your hands must be clean when you put your hands on it

    I had it done at home by a relative to save money. I also have a rule about that steering wheel your hands must be clean before touching it

    I had my 61 deluxe, (aero), wheel recast at D & D restorations in NC. Cost was $1300.00.
    Steph's wheel looks great too.

    I had 2 quotes 1 for $1300 and another for $1700 and the higher price also came with a life time warranty . At that time I did not have the money for it .
