    I am actually thinking about putting my car back together lol... I have a Tuff wheel but am good with a Retro custom steering wheel. I would want a Day 2 mod scenario so what was the popular wheel back then? If you say Chain wheel then obviously you guys did too many drugs back then lol....

    Thnx,
    JW

                  And a Vertigate to boot.... those 2 items are definitely from the Era I am looking at replicating... Your steering wheel is definitely one on my brain.

                      Of course, my unblemished factory original wheel sits safely in storage in case I ever want to use it again.

                        I have the original deluxe wheel, tuff wheel, and standard wheel and all are mint.... But it's not what I want... That Grant is probably the one. My next decision is the Hood tach but that's for another day lol...

                        Yes, imo you just can't go wrong with that look. 20210419_165730.jpg

                          In my opinion, this wheel looks 3455 times better.

                          Wayoutfish has got that "later the first week" vibe down pretty good too. Besides the wheel, i like the B&M chrome box and moroso 10 grand mechanical tach.
