Southern ways Epsilon, these were listed as Enkeis on Craigslist since the logo is a fanciful "e"

Old wheels look fine on new cars, these have a 91 build date but were designed in the 80s  photo 4E49BBD0-48D3-4BAF-8A4F-622A89424AFD_zps3aqqtdvw.jpg

Also technically 70's wheels, nicest ones I've ever seen though. And they were on a 80's turbo originally (supposedly)

So I'm super jealous that all of your wheel shots appear to be from stuff currently or previously in your stable....

I pay for my automotive addiction by buying, repairing/restoring and selling old wheels. I'm a junky

chandlerGTi: how the heck are you finding all of these? I checked prices on CL near the two biggest cities by me and they are outrageously expensive.

Well, Those pics are from the last ten years since I started using photobucket. Deals do show up but buying damaged ones or pairs and sitting on them untill another pair shows up is usually cheaper. I have a couple hundred wheels sitting here right now that are unsellable because no one wants "three" cool wheels or they need to be staggered and I have four of one size. I hit twenty or so forums classifieds every morning and again at night trying to find matches or cool sets well priced. It's like a second job; but I love it! Look at some of these wheels!

Here, in the background is a rack of castoff wheels. I know what's there and also look for more to make sets or replace damaged ones  photo 6F9F8BBE-FB5E-4F6D-98D2-C79C4102B977_zpskrujita4.jpg

Oh dear god, apparently we really do need to get together. I have an ongoing hunt for 13x7 or 13x8 race wheels for El Rabbito. Thinking panasport c8 or other old school deep dish stuff.
