You better be able to get a discount, because you'd be crazy to pay $300 for that.

If it was my color I'd pay it.

I have no other vices...just NOS parts. Crazy, perhaps, but it's cool with me. ;)

It's alright, I have no problem with that, as my site is for reference. It's just strange to see my interior on an eBay page, that's all.

That would be a bit of a shock to be checking out a part on ebay and see one of your pics. like that.

I had something simular happen. I had a guy make 3 photo signs for me. One of my car, one of my sisters, and one of my Dad's car. I told the guy to do what he wants with them and to use his imagination, the two where Christmas gifts. He did a great job with them but afterward my sister was looking at stuff on ebay and saw a copy of her sign for sale, plus a friend let me know there was one of my car for sale as well. We both contacted the seller and after quite a few emails he reluctantly pulled them. Things got really heated in the process though, to the point of threatening to get a lawyer.

I'd probably be honored to have it happen lol. I guess it would make me feel good that a seller thought my stuff looked good enough to put in their ad :hick:

It's NOT from an 86....That's Eric's blue 84.
That picture APPEARS to be after the 8-track install as well....

That is the photo that you took, Karl, pre-8-track and pre-windshield crack. :hick:

1984 was the first year for the A-frame wheel. It was used through '86 but in 1985-86 it was either dark grey or dark brown, depending on your interior color. So if you see a color-keyed A-frame wheel then it must be from an '84--one model year only. Now 1984's with the digital dash option had a dark grey column cover and steering wheel--no color-keying allowed. There was also a Charcoal interior color. I can't tell for sure which wheel this one is since the part number isn't listed.

So yeah...if it were Cadet Blue with cruise and leather wrap, it would already be on the way to me. I don't think $300 is that bad of a price for a never-used wheel in the correct color. I mean, try finding another cheaper...!
