If you have a 14 second car with a non-conforming cage then it doesn't matter

Went to Pick n Pull today and scalped a '90 Lincoln town car to use for a trunk lid skin for the Packard - not many cars these days have a roof skin large enuff to be usable. Looks like it will have just about the right curve to wor

At long last the rear wheels and tires are on!!!
7 hr drive to Calgary then back to go pick them up yesterday. Somewhat nervous that they would actually fit right since I was only going off of wheel and tire specs to have the rear diff made to the right width, wheel tub size and wheelwell opening - whew!, they fit!!
