    Help with wheel and tire combo for an '81 with Turbo GT wide body kit?

    Why not c6 zo6 wheels and tires. Superbuickguy used Grand Sport (same dimensions) I think, but adapters might be required. You could pick them up with tires fairly reasonably, don’t see them as often lately though.

    Brake "failure" oddity that has me scratching my head.

    Lots of us used silicone brake fluid due to the oem cast iron brakes. Any chance you are using that? Last post addresses issues. https://www.practicalmachinist.com/forum/threads/silicone-brake-fluid.97629/

    Boiling your brake fluid? I put a vacuum reservoir on my car and it helped when car went to idle.

    No, no photos. I was just there dropping off the wheels for the z28. The wheels on the Camaro were old school rims that were cut and widened with hoops/barrels welded in. Maybe next year I’ll start going to vintage races and get photos & video. Won’t have a race car, unless I hit the...

    Yeah, funny how things get valued. I think it was you that said the value of an old race car depends on who sat in it. I’m just guessing, but on that consignment tribute car, the original owner dumped all the money into it and now it’s up for sale or it was/is part of an estate.

    Well, I think it is on consignment. Some one spent a s___ ton of money on a car that "might have been a 427." Still, I thought it was interesting, so posted it. :)
