    Many of these are intimately familiar to me from my days of collecting hub caps from my early teenage years. They used to lay alongside of roads everywhere and I would bring them home and clean them in my mother’s kitchen sink.

    That 67 Pontiac is a real mystery, though, and looks like no wheel I ever saw back then. That looks like some kind of custom wheel that incorporates a Pontiac hubcap fron the 50s as its center.

      The ’67 Pontiac is a custom wheel with the center cap from something like a ’58 Bonneville.

    Is there anything prettier than a whitewall on a pink Packard? I think not.

    I’m like a bird and always go straight for the shiny stuff!

    I had been thinking that you never get yourself in the hubcap photo, but there you are in the last one.

    Such an interesting design item, ranging from the plain baby moon through the showy Packard to the overdone Galaxie. Are there legendary hubcap designers in the industry? Maybe one should write a book.

      My dad’s 66 Galaxie had those wheel covers — they look perfectly normal to me!

    It’s an amazing look at the amount of detail put into a small object on a car. Back when everyone tried to make everything about cars wonderful!

      Now it’s all about the creature comforts.

    I love the hubcap selfie on the 1964 Pontiac GTO. You framed yourself and the other car quite nicely!

      Thanks! That was a fun shot to make.
