The flairbird dashes held up very well so there would be no reason to replace it. Most likely it's just sun faded.

Glad to see your back on the road with new tires. My 10 year old radials went bad a few months back and developed huge knots in the tire. Take a look at this broken belt (not quite a bad as your tire problem though)


One other thing......(hope you don't mind the friendly advice)

Go buy a fire extinguisher to carry in the car - you never know when or if you might need it but if you don't have one all you can do is watch it go up in smoke. I was lucky and carried one otherwise it would have been much worse.

We are getting two more tires 2moro so we will be on 4 new ones

The extinguisher is a good idea, but on the other hand it is insured for 8500$ lol

Now you know the car was in Oregon and a previous owner liked to throw money around.

Washed and waxed the car in preparation for the Sarnia stree machines car show Sunday, then we took it to town to get bridge fries!



Can you tell where we tested The jax wax haha




Sitting on four new shoes, we might buy two more white walls for the back, we found somewhere local that them since we bought the other two plain black for a few dollars cheaper!



We are much more confident going for a drive now that we have all new rubber
