New plugs and wires in yesterday, definitely has bad head gaskets. Billowing huge clouds of white smoke from the tailpipe. I'm tossed up on reconditioning a set of heads I've had stashed in the basement or yanking the 350 out of my Chevelle for now so I can rebuild the 350 in the van. I'll make up my mind in a day or so hopefully.

I did get the title squared away and tags ordered though.

Turns out she is a 1982 model G10. I had a suspicion with those round headlights. Still haven't made up my mind on the engine situation.

Found a set of Cragar S/S rims on Craigslist the other day. Guy hadn't posted pics, but he called me back and we talked a bit. He said they were pretty nice 15x10 and 15x7 rims with some good tires for $500. He wasn't sure what they would fit, but said they were unilug. So I took a chance on them and drove 3.5 hours to Maryland today to look at them.

Turns out they are 15x10 unilug to fit 4.5", 4.75", and 5" patterns, about 4.5" backspacing. Almost new 295/50-15 Goodyears on those. The 15x7 have almost new 235/60-15 Goodyears on them. SCORE!

So I gave the gentleman the cash, threw them in the back seat of our 2014 Honda Civic (yep, they fit great back there), and brought them home. Can't wait to get them on the van to see what they look like.

The wheels are beautiful! drool

The tires give me pause. Hard to read in a blown up picture, but is the date code on those 0801 (8th week of 2001)? If so, those are old old old. I'm not one to start losing sleep when tires get older, but 18 years is pretty darned old. They warrant keeping an extra close eye on as you use them, if that is the date code. Be careful out there.

Will do. I doubt these things would be in this good of condition from 2001, but I suppose anything is possible. I'll still take it easy on them regardless.
