Hey all, as you may recall, I had a 1976 02 that had some fuel issues. It was like a tomato soup red. We'll i sold that to a guy who is taking it in under his wing and hes really taking care of the car. Idk about you guy's but i like to know my old car went to an awesome owner.

Anyway, I sold that because i didn't want an automatic, i didnt want A 1976, because the chrome and the roundies.

so! i got a new car, from an old lady whos kept it garaged for 25 years at work and at home and driven it about 1200 miles a year. It's a beautiful equation that is a beautiful outcome. Here it is, non molested, stock and all there in working order!

Anyway's I'm looking to get black basket weave rims for it but I'm not sure what size i should get if i wanted to fill the wheel well up a little better. on the stock suspension, what size would be best? 185/60/-??

Aslight drop would be nice too. The suspension probably needs freshening after all tha time. Great Find!!!!

Thats my plan :) hope to get a vintage roof rack too, I would get great use out of it.

and maybe a fog lamp too off the rear bumper.

and yes of course wheels and mirror.

audio in would be nice. sure it sounds great on that little mono speaker

They look like Rota RB's. I have a set sitting around the garage if you'd want to do a trial fit and see if you like them.

Are they Chromed or painted black like in the pictures above?

I'd love to check them out, and i'll be in spokane for thanksgiving, but I won't have my 02 with me.

Anybody have any wheels that would kinda.. fill up the wheel wells without rubbing. on stock suspension??

Hopefully pretty local? :)

They are RBs. I had put them on when I was thinking about wheels changes. They fit fine. I got some really cool Momos that I might use on mine. Good paint shop can color change the RB spokes. My wife has a set of Minilites that were painted to match the car about 7 years ago. Still look great.

Ackkkk!!!!

Oh no! Very sorry to hear about the smashing of your new ride. I hope it was fun while it lasted.

Now on to the fixing. Do you plan to restore it yourself or have a shop fix the front end and hood?

Best of luck!

this is my very lucky parts car i found. picking it up saterday, i have a good friend in the auto repair industry so we will work together.

As for the parts car, i plan to use what i need, and part out the rest, so stay tuned if you need 1972 parts, including nice straight bumpers, good roundies. etc.

It was so fun while it lasted. and I'm sure the fixing and scavenging will be fun too! my 2002 is now an official project..
