robadr has found something that I wouldn’t have expected: a 1975 Eldorado with aftermarket gold wheels that I approve of. A lot of big gold aftermarket wheels are not my thing, but these rather suit the car quite well, in relative terms anyway.
I’d probably like them even better if they were silver or argent. But there’s something about them that evoke some of the massive covers of certain luxury cars in the ’30s or so.
Like this Bentley. Isn’t it funny how that was a thing, to put covers on a genuine wire wheel? Improved aerodynamics, or at least the impression.
Looks like this Eldo is experiencing some water intrusion. robadr tells us it’s sitting across the street from a body shop that specializes in classics and exotics.
And he also tells us that “Score On Davie” is a popular sports bar on Davie Street in Vancouver.
