    Are you going to sell those "ALL ALUMINUM 15 x 10 slotted wheels with Blue Streak tires" without at least checking the air in 'em? :Do No:

    I recently read on V-8 buick that some guy is selling NOS 69 spare-air. Maybe the air in your "ALL ALUMINUM 15 x 10 slotted wheels with Blue Streak tires" could be valuable. I'm a little too far away to offer to come over and sniff it for you, but maybe you could get someone closer to help you determine the value. When I saw them Monday, I thought I detected the aroma of "Broken Crayons".

    You could be sitting on a valuable asset.=> :moonu: :TU:

    So since this air came out of an original tire, does it have that vintage Polyglas smell? Also since you have it in a hefty bag how do you get it into an air compressor to fill your tires with it? :puzzled: :Do No: :grin:

    As much as it is worth, you would never ever even consider puting it back into a tire unless it was an NOS spare that had gone flat.

    Maybe I'm bored too

    Sergeant Major,
    If I had 63 air I would contact the Vette boys. The guys with the 63 "split windows" would probably pay enough to restore your Buick.:laugh:

    I just got off the phone with the original owner Dick Shootzinyashortz. He told me in 1972 he brought his car in for an oil change and saw the mechanic in the trunk of the car, the mechanic stated he "checked the air in the spare, and it was a little low" he further stated the mechanic added 5 lbs. of 1972 air, which we all know the international rules set forth by CCARS (Car Collectors Aanal Retentive Society) in 1976 which states in their judging by-laws on page 2,901 in paragraph 3 subdivision 6 - "any air that is added to a tire will be considered foriegn air thus rendering the air in the tire contaminated and therefore the total penalty will be a deduction of 11 points. * with the exception of- If the air was taken from another tire of the same year from the same plant and replaced in said tire . . ."
    Alan -It is evident the air came from the shop compressor, therefore the tire is contaminated.
    I'll give you 10 bucks shipped!

    wheelz 'B' is for Buick.

    YO ANTHONY...You're WRONG...The CCARS MANUAL was revised in "Addendum suppliment dated June 33rd, 1978, on PAGE 11,204 A, paragraph 302.06.....it states: ."A TWO YEAR research and study performed but the University of Delco/Moraine Ohio undegraduate foundation, funded by "AIR EQUALITY Advancement Systems, (a $140,765,001.54 GRANT FROM THE BIG THREE) states ANY naturally aspirated FILTERED AIR UP TO AND INCLUDING 4.7222 lbs of low density cool air at 996 ppm at 51 degrees F, can be added and WILL BE be considered AN EVEN MIX OF AIR, RENDERING EQUALITY and non contaminating threats to factory Flint 69 Air thus nullifying all unfounded statuates as previously printed hereof!" C'mon read the book!!! and GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT...sheeeesh. Wheelz, Tampa Bay

    But if it was only a 'little bit' of 72 air, mixed with 69 air. Then woudn't that make it 70 air? And we all know 70 was the zenith of horsepower, so maybe it's worth more... :shock:

    Can't say I've ever seen those, and unless you're dropping acid, you haven't seen them either. If, on the other hand, you happen to have some of the air out of the slicks from "Pop" Kennedy's '65 GS racecar, I might be interested. Alan, maybe you have a source for me? Sorry I took so long, I just became aware of your thread. :TU:

    There aint a bag big enough for all the hot air in this post. This has become my favorite post of all time. The best part is someone got peeved off. People gotta lighten up and laugh at themselves. I think I woke the family and the dog laughin.

    No, no, that's not right... '69 air should be @ 26#. Diluted by 5# '72 air makes it worth 81% asking price...:grin:

    I just found a complete set of NOS heater core mouse turds. There are the rare, 1st design turds with the smooth tapered ends. Correct for 70-71 Flint built GS's and 72 Framingham cars (those guys didnt get the memo to stop putting them in)

    Group 8.153 parts #9801526. Comes in a package of three turds.
