Yeah, it's a big area! I've got London too apparently!

We'll be at Billing on the Sunday as that's the best day. Look out for 'Goldie' and I'm the guy with the dodgy tash. (very blue oyster, I'm told) See you there hopefully.

Blue Oyster Club eh? Lol! Look forward to it mate

Hi,
I live in Finland. I have owned a 75 TA for three years. I've had a 65 Chevy Impala SS for 20 years, so I needed to have some change. I've always liked 2gen, so when I had a permission from Board (read: wife) I bought one. The car has been in Finland since 1977. The car has original engine with automatic. The rear is also original. It has low miles, only 72 kmiles. It is loaded, as it has AC, cruise, custom interior, power windows and power door locks. I've added some factory options and accessories, like door edge guards, deluxe seatbelts and trunk lock opener.

Try looking for Cooper Cobra tires in your local webshops, they are not that hard to find in my area :-)

I've tried already between Germany Austria and Italy, but nobody seems to have white letters anymore (Cobras and BFs)  :-(
I'm also looking for some nice condition Rally IIs rims

Hello neighbour.

The trans am was imported from the us and was part of a car museum here.
then it was sold to a muscle car collector which sold it to a military and then finaly i had the change to buy it.
It now is black on black but it is original white with the blue stripe, engine and heads are original, intake and carb not.

i tried to get a picture on this but i don't understand how this works  (insert image does not seem to work.)

greetings.

but these are off road tires and only the outline is white, I'm looking for solid white letters and I might have to order them from the UK, do you know this site?

ATU had solid white letters until last year...

Hi - I know that this don't help you directly, but take a look at this link to an online Danish tire shop:

http://www.billigedaek.dk/shop/sommerdaek-usa-bil-84c3.html

If all else fails you can try and write them an email asking if they will ship to Italy.. propably won't be cheap though, but cheaper than ordering from the US..
