  • Another Wrapper ?

    I just listed this 2 door sedan Commander.

    (I know, it 20 pounds heavier than the real Challenger wrapper.)

    Nice car. I like the wheels. Look like they might even have the lazy "S" stickers on the center...but what was the PO thinking with those tires ??

        I think those wheels are plain old Ford Ranger "styled steel" wheels.

            Now that I look at it again, are those rear sidemarkers from an early 70's Ford pickup?

                195x65 tires, way too tiny, they are Ranger wheels and have no idea about the marker light.

                    Well I'll be!! That car has the same six cylinder history, the same paint, same model, even comes from the east coast(Rutherford, NJ car). If it didnt have the brown split bench(vinyl black buckets), ranger rims(stock rims), newer paint, and the six(R2), I'd be checking my wrapper in the driveway [:O]!!

                        Ironically, as silly as those tires (not wheels) look on that car, they are almost identical to the tires we ran on the real Plain Brown Wrapper the first time we went to The Pure Stock Muscle Car Drags [September 1998]. If you have a copy of the January 1999 Turning Wheels lying around, look at The Plain Brown Wrapper on the front cover and elsewhere. It was shod with new P205/60ZR15 Avon tires that first year.

                        60-profile tires were outlawed the next year unless cars were so originally equipped, and we had no argument with that. Here on John's Commander, a 195/65 tire should have about the same height as a 205/60 tire, so I think this car's rear end being elevated contributes more to the odd appearance than do the tires.

                        (Oh, and the P205/60ZR15 tires we took off The Plain Brown Wrapper after that first year at the drags? [^] I put them on a 1996 Chevy Beretta I was selling on the car lot that needed tires. I sold the Beretta to a local [Brownsburg IN] Police Detective friend for his son. I assured him the tires were "...virtually new, Jeff; why, they have fewer than 100 miles on them!") BP
                        We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                        Ayn Rand:
                        "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                        G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.
