Got up early Sunday morning to find my Rally caps gone!

Some little *&^% coward snuck on to my well lit driveway and snatched 'em!

@#$ %^$ , I hate a $%&^ thief worse than just about anything else!

AAHHHH, I feel better-Thanks for the vent.

Didn't even think people even stole those things anymore. Already picked up a better set for forty bucks, but damn, the aggravates the #$%^ outta me.

Gotta get that car in the garage.

I know your frustration. About a year ago, I went on a trip with the family. When we got home, someone had broke into my garage & stole the wheels from my Cutlass. At least they were kind enough to put the car on my jack stands. Stole some tools & an amp as well.

Got my OPG catalog on monday AFTER they stole my caps. I saw those but can't figure how they work. looks like you would screw them in through the back of the caps and then attach the other end under the lugs. Anybody using those?
Thanks for the tip Mr. Limey.
I hope they,he, she, whatever doesn't come back. It wouldn't be good for any of us if I catch 'em. School just got out for the summer around here friday, so i think it was just some kids. But.............It's also my fault for underestimating what a @#$% thief considers valuable.
And thanks rago, your story makes me feel better knowing it could have been worse.

It happens to everyone at some point. I learned real quick when I moved to Tulsa out of High School that your possessions gotta be locked down. Unfortunately that didn't stop the people that stole my wheels & it happened in a small town. They were 15x7 & 15x10 Ansen Slots too. Not an easy set of rear wheels to find.

they attach to the 4 screws on the back of the derby caps, and then the two bigger holes attach to the lug nuts before you tighten them down and work rather well, i had a set of them and they work great never lost a set with them!!!! and also works well if you hit a big arse hole you wont lose them that way either


well worth the 45 bucks

I can't abide a thief! Y'all really need to let the Rotti sleep by your car at night and upgrade your home defense weaponry. Around these parts, that's a shooting offense!

And as Limey so correctly noted...... They will return. You can make book on that. So be ready for them and make their next visit their last.

Sorry to hear that. Look at it this way. They could have stolen your whole car like what happened to me 2 years ago. Got my 74 Chevelle stolen right out of my driveway after restoring it all winter. You can replace center caps. Kinda hard to replace a whole car. Especially these cars. You'll never find one the same.
