You have probably seen photos of the famous "Painted Ladies" in SF a number of times. What you may not know is the street they are on: Steiner Street

I have seen these 2 Bar spinner caps on a few Pontiacs with 8 Lug Wheels. Was this a Pontiac RPO? Or was it a 3rd party option like J.C. Whitney? Or are they something new?

Sure looks like a model rather than a real one.

They were an aftermarket thing that Mr Wangers was quite fond of.

Dad was pretty pleased that he managed to fend them off on our Wangers prepped '63.

By the way: the red car belongs to Dennis and Mary Koss, the only two time winners of the Van Seymore Award at the Widetrackers Dustoff show.









The black car was owned at one time by Detroit rocker Bob Seger.

Want stripes on your new 2020 Shelby GT 500? You have two choices: first is the factory optioned vinyl stripes for $1000. The second option is for the factory to ship your car to Penske who paints the stripes on the car. That option will cost you $10,000
