I bought it a year ago in september. It had been standing under the tree for about 5 years. And when it arrived to my garage it looked like this.

Old Iron 02-04-2013 02:24 PM

Great looking car, nice to see somebody repairing rust instead of dumping the car at the yard. haha, I have a bone to pick though, "Why you stealing my 'Old Iron' sig" haha!

http://static2.fotoalbum.ee/fotoalbu...3018363ecc.jpg

I dont know what the ET would be. I know that they are 6.5" wide s60 steelies that are widened to 10 inces. But they do fit perfectly, if rear suspension is enough stiff then, its just perfect. And center caps are acctually A le coq export cans, regular size. Fits almost perfectly. In front i need 10mm spacers, because of that ET rim is touching strut housing without spacer.

Well, one thing is that i love this car and actually its my first car, so i have to save her, other think is that, in Estonia it is almost impossible to find so old car in mint condition, because roads are salted and that salt is ****ing up our cars. And that Old Iron is acctually one event in Estonia called Old Iron Weekender


Little information about it.
OLD IRON WEEKENDER is a series of international events dedicated to all American and classical car owners, who also take interest in Rockabilly and Rock’n’Roll music and lifestyle. Some of the many organized activities include: cruising, drive-in cinema and gigs by different bands from Estonia and abroad.

pwschuh 02-04-2013 07:29 PM

What do you do when someone pops the tab on your center caps?

Ollu 02-05-2013 10:15 AM

Old Iron 02-06-2013 09:25 PM

Ollu 02-07-2013 03:23 AM
