    So, not a Buick, but for my Mach 1 I'm wanting to change the steering wheel. I've had the car since 1992 when I was 12, and one of the first "mods" I did was install a Grant GT Challenger (you know....the one that every muscle car from 1992 would have had in it). Anyway, I'd like to update it, but am having a hard time deciding what to go with. Budget is around $150, I really like the 13-13.5" diameter of what's in it now, and I don't want anything too "blingy" or something that's going to be out of style in 5 years. Black or gray center most likely.....

    Here's the car, so you get an idea of my style. Interior is factory type white/silver with black carpet and dash. Thanks, and let me know what your opinions are!

    Grant wooden wheel, with the incorrect Buick tri-shield color scheme (red-blue-white)...damn contractors...

    That’s a great color on the MACH 1

    Thanks, Keith. It's actually a color of green off a 2001 Honda Accord, but we nearly tripled the pearl content. We tested colors on my 1st Yamaha V-max, but came up with the right combo first try.

    I happen to love my "incorrect" comfort grip sport wheel. It would be WAAAY outta whack on a Mustang though. :D

    It'd still be cooler than the stock Maverick one it had when I bought it..... I should mention slick wood or plastic grips will not work. Has to be rubber, vinyl, leather, etc. Car has a little bit of power and I also autocross it. I'd do Joe's chain suggestion, but the gold clashes with my oil pan drain plug......

    That's a great idea, Jason! I'll have to check what diameters I can get them in. It really needs to be 13.5" or less. Guy could get a used one even if it's cracked and recover it. Hmmmmmm......

    I actually like to use a rudder and wooden wheel. Although it requires I stand and steer from the roof and peer at the road ahead through a hand held telescope, it's a small price to pay for driving my land yacht. :D
