    Those caps should have been in my mail box.
    I have 3 sets of different rims, ideas and time. I could of put those caps to use. When you replied to me I couldn't believe it. I read your OP so I didn't need to be re told . Nor did I feel I have to explain why I needed them, no one else got the 3rd degree but me.
    When some one give something free just let it go with out stipulations.

    Mom didn't raise a liar or a beggar so I didn't want to lie and say...

    Nor did I want to beg...
    But a couple days later and this bs is still on my mind. I guess I let **** linger but If i don't speak my mind it eats me up.

    I'm sorry if it hit you out the blue, but it hit me out the blue too.

    Ok Ronnie, here's the deal. I own these. I can do what i want with them. You don't need them. I don't want to send them to you as it'd be a waste of them. They will not fit your wheels. I am not a moron or a greenhorn, I know this. To prove this, here's a picture of center caps for your wheels and the Buick caps I have. Your rims are aluminum. These are steel. These are so small they'll fit inside the cragar hole and will fall through your wheel centers. What you going to do, weld chromed steel to chromed aluminum to get them to fit? Not possible. Settle down, quit wasting everyone's time trying to start arguments. I've helped you plenty for free in the past. I don't owe you a thing. Nobody does. Now go get busy putting that Oldsmobile engine into your Buick that you're so die hard Buick about.

    Hey Lucas,
    I need a couple if these are still around.
    Not sure what is correct for 71 but I have 2 decent black ones a half one and a white one now .
    Two black would get me there.

    Don't worry fellas. No popcorn needed. Graham gets the center caps to match the two he already has.

    Ronnie, I may have some extra Cragar caps that I was going to offer you, if you didn't have any. But, not now. Unless you apologize to Lucas. Uncalled for.
    I checked out what you want to attempt when I had no caps for my Buick rims.
    The way I'd do Buick emblems on Cragars would be to carefully grind the logo from the center of the cap. Then I'd glue some new center cap inserts in the center.

    I agree Jerry. Not cool. Its not that I don't understand Ronnie's point of view, but they're Lucas's parts and he want to do a good deed and give them away to someone that has a legitimate NEED for them, Not someone who just wants them to experiment on different wheels. If Lucas were selling them, it be a different story. Im sorry, just I have to side with Lucas on this one.

    Graham needed them to complete a set for his car. Mart also needed them to replace a pair that got stolen and I commend Phillip for stepping up and offering a pair for free to him. Good on you

    Guess I just don't understand why someone would want to try & put Buick caps on Cragars anyway?
    Years ago I had Cragars with the 3 spoke knockoff centers, that I thought were pretty cool. Cragars are very (steel) heavy, at least mine were. They slow you down......

    I don't understand why someone would take sides with something that does not involve you. If you want to take sides go head, no sweet off my back. I won't apologize for what I said. If you dont like me now it's cool. I prefer to have real people around me that won't jump ship on me.
    Happy motering.

    Wow, just read this thread thru.... no coolness.
    Looks like Lucas was genuinely trying to give caps away to someone with a circumstance need.
    My apologies if offended.

    They came today Philip...
    Thank You for Your Kindness.
    I was at Englishtown a good while back and replaced 2 of the 4 stolen, but these are Much Nicer.
    Let me know the shipping cost, so I can get it to you.
    Thanks Again, Mart

    Martin I was a sticky fingered thief in an earlier life and I couldn't begin to count the number of Buick center caps I swiped...
    We'll just put this in the "me trying to do the right thing" column and call it good.
    I could never balance the scales but it is definitely more blessed to give than it is to receive.
    Hopefully you can keep em on the car this time.
