    There seems to be a small variation in the dog dish hubcaps. They all look virtually identical, but there is small difference in one angle. I went through some of my caps to show you the difference

    Here are two doggies. Look identical right?

    Now look at them from another angle. See the difference? The one on the left has a "flatter" angle on it than the one on the right (Pardon the dust on them). The one on the right is a bit taller

    I wonder how many of you guys have a mixture of them on their cars

    I found set of (4) on eBay nobody bid on them. Never used. You can always tell buy the inside . No brake dust. If your lucky. Glad I got them . I think Buick has the nicest out of all the car manufacturers. The ones on the 66 impalas we cool too

    Haha! I'll have to measure later on today.

    Speaking of which, did you ever find a good driver pair for me?
