In the name of cost savings, we told you in the May issue that we were going to replace our shiny Mickey Thompson ET Drag wheels with the steelies that came on the Nova, at least until the car deserves the investment. We prepped our rallys for some fresh slicks by fogging them with aluminum wheel paint. They came out really, really badly. We should have sandblasted them and used more of that good primer. McGean tells us he's better than this, but we'll get over it.
