    Those first design lugs are much harder to find, if someone is doing a points restoration then maybe it's worth the price to get that right. Reading some of the feedback on E-Bay Sellers etc, not trying to step on anyones toes here but if someone has something for sale they can ask whatever price they want...if someone is willing to pay then so be it. I myself have purchased from people on E-Bay, Yenko.net and here, If there was something I could not live without for a car then it was my decision to pay or pass on the part. That is the great thing about living in a country that allows you to make that choice.

    And you’ve read it here too...just a few months ago:
    http://www.nastyz28.com/threads/1970-lug-nuts.303659/

    Seemed like everyone was on board with the concerns about the Ames repop lug nuts.
