It's the Wheel Deal!

I was at the Rockin Jalopy's Motorama show the other weekend and my neighbour was the ever friendly Jack Hammer, who sells all kinds of bolt-on goodies.

He had some bitchen' Grant Metalflake steering wheels. I had my eye on a green one and the kolor seemed to magically match the green flaked panels on my van. I scooped it up and took it home. I already had a wood Grant wheel so mounting the new one was easy-peasy.
It looks great! Can't wait to drive it!

Unfortunately, winter has landed in the Low Countries. That means salt on the roads and all kinds of wetness and grime. That does not go well with the pristine So-Cal untreated floors, sills and chassis of the Green Machine. So it will stay indoors until all the snow and salt have disappeared. Bummer.

Because two steering wheels is a bit over the top, even for a show van, my vintage Grant wooden steering wheel is for sale:

It's in excellent condition. Chrome is good, wood is not cracked or dried out. The wood could do with a good cleaning and some oil. Will make a great addition to any Custom Van.
Mail me for pricing.
