Thanks to Mike (200OZ), I have a cool new wheel in the Marshmallow! He sent me a link to an eBay ad a while back saying it was something I had to have... So I clicked the link, and he was RIGHT! I think it's out of a T-Type.



I finally got around to installing it today. It's about 1/2" less diameter than the stock wheel, but the grip is much thicker. I LOVE IT! I had to remove my airbag, and coil, and trim about 1/4" off the back of the wheel to get it to clear the airbag column, but it was still an easy install. Horn even works! Smile

Thanks Mike!

Now thats how a GNW (Grand National Wagon) that Buick should have built would have looked like.The wheel looks great and centers the gauges
too.I often wonder what our wagons would look like today if GM hadnt swallowed the SUV pill and started down that slippery slope to bailouts
and being content with being ranked constantly at the bottom.
Even though they are building some truly amazing cars today,I dont ever see "the Big Three'ever being more than a weak fourth or fifth and I am
being generous.Too many burned owners that went asian years ago and now a new generation of drivers who dont know anything else unless
their dad, grandads or uncles are old school WAGON enthusiast.
Take Care

LOVE IT!! Want that wheel too....and still love the gauges.

Anyone know how hard it would be to pull the airbag bulb if I did that???

Wish you were closer, I'd detail the inside for free!

Hey, I haven't washed it since Wagonfest. What do you want from me??? Wink

Bulb is easy to pull. 2 7mm's and pop the dash face off, and then I think it's 2 or 4 more 7mms and the cluster is out. 15 minutes, tops. Smile

Not to be a copy-cat but if anyone comes across one of these steering wheels please let me know. Dark red please! Been looking in the yards but so far have not found one.

THANKS!!
