It's not you.

And Jeff, I already have three. LOL, Maybe not a perfect, but I certainly don't need any more. Thanks.

Why were these recalled?

The story goes that if you are in an accident, you will break off the rim and impale yourself with the spikes left over.

I heard that people were sticking their fingers thru the slots and getting them broken. Probably when the wheel would jerk from hitting a curb or something like that.

For 1,850.00 it better fix its own cracks and come with a super hot chick to help me put it on.

I heard that people were sticking their fingers thru the slots and getting them broken. Probably when the wheel would jerk from hitting a curb or something like that.

I agree Jeff and I'll add that the openings in the 1967 only version of the recall wood grain wheels are also said to have sharp edges on the insides of those slots, which was impossible to fix due to the chrome finish that was used on the spokes. It seems that owners were actually getting serious cuts on their fingers when they would put their fingers through those slots while driving and some type of an emergency would happen and even cleaning these wheels was an adventure. From what I understand, Chrysler tried to fix this problem by placing "horn bars" in the spoke slots, but decided that it would be better to just redesign the spokes on the wood grain wheels, which they did in 1968. This was also not a problem on the 1966 wood grain wheels, because those wheels had solid spokes with no slots.

Below are some pictures of the various 1966, 1967 and 1968-69 wheels for comparison.

1966 version with a Plymouth horn button.

Can I have your other B-bodies when that happens? Please don't impale yourself on the copper 67 vert (or the blue GTX or the red GTX). I want that one (and the red one and the blue one). Come to think of it, if you're going to use the recall wheel to impale yourself, please consider putting it into your Chevy van first (no point in wasting a perfectly good B-body). :D

Don't worry about Rich Barry, both he and Jay Leno have VERY impressive security personnel to protect them, their thousands of cars and their millions of spare parts!

Here's a picture of a small part of Rich's security detail.

Ok, so you're going to be one of those who are a bit more difficult to find a new idenity for huh buddy? Well, here are a few more options, but you'll have to consider a few drawback with each one.

Option #1 - Doctor / scientist with a severe anger management issue. Drawbacks are that you won't remember crap when you wake up and you will NEVER be able to wear a nice shirt again.

Option #2 - Starship captain. Drawbacks are that you MUST agree to go where no man has gone before with a dude with green pointy ears.

Option #3 - Sheriff's deputy. Drawbacks are that you will be relocated to a small southern town where only Ford vehicles are driven and you will only be allowed to have one bullet which you MUST keep in your front shirt pocket.

Option #4 - Delivery person. Drawbacks are that you will HAVE to shave your legs daily, wear extremely short shorts and try to find two large equally sized grapefruit's to fill out the upper portion of your uniform on a daily basis.
