Thanks, I got them from a tire shop in California that specializes in taking regular radial tires and turns them Into white walls. About half the cost of other white walls tires. They are 2" but the shop can do pretty much any size, and also does different colors too!

** sorry ended up in middle of quote .. **thanks I'll bet they can widen the ones I have. or maybe I'll put two colors on mine to match paint . lol no kidding on that one . I'm not too far from there, I'll be thinking on this one .

Saw a white roadster being trailered behind a motor home northbound on HWY 75 in Bartlesville OK. Around 5:00pm. Anyone here?

Saw a white 69 1600 on the street in San Francisco with a "I'd rather be on Bring a Trailer" license plate trim a few weeks ago. I looked back at the ones sold on BAT but couldn't find a match. It was parked near Mason and Jackson Streets. Someone on here?

Skip Miller's place. Datsun mechanic who can always catch the esoteric stuff you wouldn't likely know.
I recently realized he could work on my Toyota too! He did very nicely, so I recommend him for those "other" Japanese cars too. :)

Watching American Pickers last night. The went to a place in Auburn California. Guys name was Vern I think. He had a bunch of Ford Model A and T stuff but when they pulled into his property there was a roadster setting in the weeds. Looked to be a high windshield with white rear quarter and red from the door forward.
