argh! they changed lugnut spacing from 72 to 92
The 92 Eldorado Touring Coupe needs to be scrapped--with a seized engine, two body panels needing replacement, and electrical work needed for both windows, it just isn't worth it--and having new tires at that!
So in scrapping it, I was keeping the rims and tires. Unless the wrong baby tire was in the trunk, the lug nut spacing was changed just ever so slightly.
I don't *want* to shell out for real, new tires until I'm ready to drive the 72; tires here in the desert die of dry rot long before the treads are in issue.
At least it sounds like I can get more for the wheels & rims on craigs list than I'm going to get for the car.
