Do any of you like the MOON wheel covers.
I think they look good on lowered custom 50's cars.
They do add a real different look to any car.
I've seen them on everything from Mustangs to MG's.

I only like them on the really old Bonneville type stuff. They look cool, but they are very dated in my opinion.

Aren't we all Steve.

I like them on big cars too.You still see a lot of them around here for HAN.
You guys really should see that event some day.
But you have to like oldie music and dress ect.
I've been trying to get my brother to get them for his 4 dr 63 Electra.

Baby Moons are cool. They look great on a lot of different cars and trucks.

The original lakes moons were butt ugly on a sedan. IMNSHO! They actually screwed onto the rim and were made of spun aluminum. They looked great on a belly tank lakester or a REAL Bonneville Salt Flats Special. On a 72 Buick Cv or whatever, be about as tasteless as Superfly headlights and a phony Rolls grille on an Eldorado. They were great at picnics-could be taken off and used as frisbees Never cared for baby moons but they were popular, I guess. Funny to see some a****** with a Plymouth with a single Warshawsky glass pak and moons screwed on. Some of the more "TASTE CONSCIOUS" would paint them iridescent shades. Lovely!!

My '70 had Moon wheelcovers on them when my brother owned it about 10 years ago. They just didn't look right on a Mustang, IMO. I have the baby Moon caps on my '46 pickup with chrome wheels. I think the regular Moons look good on Bonneville kind of stuff, but not too much else.
