How about a $25 set of dog dish caps for only $185?[:0]

Seems like somebody came across a big hubcap stash and thinks they're going to get rich[|)] Check out his other sets, including a beat-up set of older Stude caps[:o)]

Actually, that style of auction may be working for him. Put an outrageous BIN on an item OR make offer. You get one or two idiots who see a hubcap they've got to have and they just might hit the BIN.

Go look at his closed auctions. I wish I had that stash of hubcaps:(

I hesitate to make fun of his entrepreneurial efforts, he just may well sell them for a handsome profit and get the last laugh...

Didn't anyone notice that those are NOT Studebaker hubcaps? [:0]

They used the '60 Lark die, with the center blanked out! They must be for a Checker or International like the Stude. wheelcovers that they used. I have NEVER seen a Cap like that! [:0]

These S-less editions were used on Mopar compacts - late 60s, early 70s. It's not the only dog dish cap they borrowed from Stude. There's about 3 or 4 that were reincarnated!

1960 Larkvertible V8
1958 Provincial wagon
1953 Commander coupe
