    looks great, all of them! back then, for less than $1000 you could buy wheels and tires, spoiler/fender flares a winshield visor and a roof spoiler. you could instantly go from a stocker to a custom in an afternoon.

    Cool

    Being a daily driver van I usually run two different styles of rims

    8 inch truck style rallies in the winter




    Crager SS's in the summer months



    Because the cragers are not in really good shape.I think I am going to run them in the winter this year with the set of "custome fiberglass" flares.pictured
    When it snows I stay home.This set up should work out OK........

    I've always loved the shorty 3rd gen, I've had one since I was in high school, hope someday to get back to it. Just got to figure out how to make 30 hour days!!!!!!
