    In my buddy's last estate clean up, he came across quite a few car parts he got to take for free. This included both a small and large journal 327 SBC, a bunch of chrome and trim, and some random center caps including a couple for a Buick. He said he doesn't know what to do with them, and I can have them..... What are these from, and can anybody use them? They'd polish up to decent driver quality I'm sure. If you know what they're for and can use them, let me know and I'll get them to you for cost of shipping. If you're just going to hoard them or hang them on your wall, please don't ask for them as I can do that myself :)....Don't ask about the Pontiac cap, I've got a home for that haha.....

    EDIT: Dammmmm.....I got some smashed thumbnails!

    Like I said, unless they're going to go onto a car that someone has and needs them for, I'll keep them and hang them in my collection.

    Cragars have a center cap that has a screw on plate on the back that holds them on. These would just pop off.

    Ronnie, I'm not passing you up. I'm trying to help someone out that NEEDS these for their car. Someone that has whatever car they go to and is missing one or two. Not trying to be a dick, but I don't want to give them to you to try on your Cragars when I know they won't work properly and it'd be a bummer if there was someone that actually needs them but they end up hanging on your wall or in your stash the same as they will in mine. I've had probably 10 sets of Cragars at various times. These will not work on them.

    Lucas they look like run of the mill 72-89 Buick Ralley Wheel center caps.
    Could've been on a Regal or LeSabre or Century or...you get the idea.
    There has to be some body that has bought a driver type car with two wheels with no center caps...

    Good Job Lucas!;)

    I could use them to complete a set if you don't mind shipping to Canada.

    Cool :) If you've got a pair that need a pair, I feel that's a good spot for them to go if you don't mind paying the shipping. PM me your info, I'll get you a shipping price and get them out to you.

    Lucas, if Mopar passes, I can use the 2 Buicks....made the mistake of going into the City of Wilmington DE and didn't pop them off before hand.
    :(:mad:.......Thanks..Mart

    Dang that sucks, Mart. Graham has spoken for them, but my buddy might be going back to the estate later this week. I'll have him look for the other 2 if he gets there.

    Thanks for the PM Lucas, but Graham shouldn't have to suffer because of me being too stupid to pop them off....thought I was still in the '69 442 I should have never sold..
    Lock Plate and Screws on Back.:D

    Just for the record I don't want people to think I was going to cut Graham out of the deal. I just pm'd Mart to say if he wanted to pm Graham to see if he'd offer them to him as his were stolen, I'd be ok with that, but it would be between them......No worries and if my buddy finds the other two center caps, I'll let everybody know I've got 2 more.

    I should have explained better...
    Lucas said maybe I could check with Graham, (which was very nice of him), because mine were stolen, but it's a Ok. I'll probably be up at Carlisle next week and maybe find a good price on New ones. Thanks, Mart

    Martin I found these today: they are used, all the clips look good, the black background is black, the Tri-Shield is Tri-colored. But they are used!
    There are some chigger bites on the chrome but they shine and look pretty good.

    Get me your address and I'll get them on their way to you. ;)
