    This is my latest improvement. Being a "Baby Boomer," I love chrome. The company I ordered them from forgot to send the Chrome Center Caps. Should be here Monday.

    Let me explain the "Yankee Go Home." This banner hung over the doorway going out onto the ramp at Danang Air Force Base in Viet Nam. Every service member walked through this doorway to get onto the plane taking him/her home. I have no idea who took it when they were closing the AFB in May of '72. I bought it in a silent auction at a Marine Corps Helicopter Pilots Reunion several years ago....I paid a few thousand but it was going to the scholarship fund for children of Marines who died in combat.

          Oh and the rims look great with the color!

            Looks great compared to the lame stock finish. Kind of takes that boring stock wheel to a whole new level ^^^^
            Cost?

              Thanks for sharing your latest C8 pictures and we agree that the chrome finish really improves the appearance of the 5-spoke wheels which look rather bland/"blah" in silver paint.

              Appreciate the back-story on the banner too... a lot of history in that banner.

                        I guess I'm officially old because I like chrome too. The price seems reasonable.

                            Don't know what I like better, Wheels or Story.
