Thank you, they are 72 spoke Daytons (real Daytons, not some phoney Mcleans or Player), with the gold spokes, I personally do not gold anything on a car, but these wheels really seem to compliment the cars color combo. The Vogue tires add to it all real well, in my opinion.

I sold my 78 Bonneville for $1 in 2002 to a friend who needed some transportation. I'd had it since 1987, painted it, rebuilt the Buick 350, rebuilt the tranny a couple times, and kept it running tip top. I made him promise to offer me first dibs on buying it back for $1 when he was done with it, but I ultimately had no room for it, and it'* just too difficult to get parts for anymore when things break, so I turned him down. He sold it to a local guy who left it somewhere where it got towed. I got a notice that the towing company would sell it to cover the $430 storage fees it racked up. My friend said they saw it driving down the road the other day, so it must have been sold. I hope the new owner likes it, I put blood, sweat, tears, and money into it to keep it in good shape! I just wish I had pics of it.
