Spotted in New York, is a set of Porsche 356 Rudge Wheels for $60,000 USD. The seller states the chrome on this set of 5 wheels is in amazing original condition. The spare shows some slight pitting. These are First Series originals. They are not reproductions. Also, included in the sale are original Rudge B Drums which are not converted drums. None of these wheels have been re-chromed. All 5 wheels come with Michelin Tires mounted. These wheels are getting harder to find. Why hasn’t anyone made a reproduction yet? The market price warrants it.

Another great year at Pebble Beach. We stayed in Carmel by the Sea where every kind of exotic car was parading up and down the streets of the downtown area. We were 1 block away so it was very easy to walk to restaurants and galleries.
