I'm wanting to go to a junkyard near by. I'll see if I can find anything. I've seen a couple of vehicles up in wisconsin that didn't have air conditioning. Might find a junkyard somewhere up there and see if they have it.

Now a day it may not be too bad but 20 years ago those caps would have found a new owner from some thief the first week they were put on. I had some regular caps on some wheels in the bed of my truck a couple years ago that got snatched. I called the cop to report it and the cop told me I was asking for it by leaving them in my truck bed???? I guess it was easier than bending over and getting them off my car if they would have been on it? Goofy cops.
