Larry Ewing's 1950 Oldsmobile 88 Coupe of Redwood City, California. Larry got the Olds in April of 1959. A typical late 1950s street racer, he gave it a 1959 Cadillac Kensington Green paint job, chromed and reversed the wheels, and installed big and little tires. Larry separated the rims from the centers himself before he took them to Santa Clara Plating. "$75 for all 8 pieces. Then I went to a welding shop in Palo Alto and had them welded back together for $6 as I waited. I did not change the valve stem location so now the stem was on the backside of the wheel. It looked cool but was a pain to check the air."
