    Trying to figure out a decent stock rim that is like. A good 80s style that would look good on a celebrity with these whitewalls i have on. Steel or aluminum. Its the junk package with the smaller lug pattern.

    I am different i guess. All my shocks and struts are shot. I like my floaty boaty. Just want a higher 80s look instead of the old pie plate hubcaps. Not that i dont like them. Its just. Hubcaps can fall off. Hubcaps make noise. And when a pebble gets in there.. AHHHHH with all the tick tick tick clack click click noise its so annoying

    And i am happy to say at this moment both my cars are "floaty boaty". Celebrity been floaty. My new 92 buick roadmaster is really floaty in the rear.. Its got air ride auto leveling that does not work.. Plus it has a tow hitch. The rear end is like 5 inches off the road. It bounces so much i smacked the rear off the road probably 20 times. I only put 5000 miles on it. The celebrity i put 15000 on that. I smacked the back 1 time. But it was wayy overloaded on a bad road.

    Still having serious air fuel problems. I have the decel valve blocked because the hoses are bad for that. And i got egr sealed up better. I still need the choke closed 100% to start the thing. The setup me and my friend built on his car starts right up even in the winter and it is perfect mixture. This car burns so lean i am suprized it even runs at all. Once its warmed up it misses some at idle but it runs lean everywhere except when the secondary opens then its a good mixture but it has no real power difference. I want to try to keep the carb and vacuum advance but there isnt too much to adjusting anything right. If they made an intake for a better carb and if the distributer needs work idk. I got the parts and everything to do the 3800 swap. Almost seems that i would be better off going that route. It has been a little lean since i got the car. But it has been getting worse. And nothing i do makes it any better. Right now it seems it is impossible to even get it to where it was originally. I have had multiple carbs on it. I had one carb that ran rich. So for thinking its a rich lean issue. Yeah the richer running carb was better BUT it still missed at idle but otherwise ok. Even with perfect mixture it missed. . i am running out of ideas. I almost want to make an adapter for a rochester 2 bbl thats actually adjustable
