I should have returned the "offer": you need any Swift GT parts?

The engine runs (rebuilt). It's so rusty it's not even towable! I'm making a little room. Culling the herd!

I shall go check and report back.

Watch this post...

Update: looks like...

Nordic Wintertrac
175/70R13
Made in USA
Sold under the Motomaster brand in "Canadian Tire" stores

Whichever company actually made them, I'd be surprised if they didn't make them for another brand in the U.S.

Are you going to use the GT side skirts on your convertible?

That's the eventual plan for the vert: GT face swap + skirts.

But I've got an extra set if you want 'em. Need anything else? Maybe we can plan a GT vs. Metro junk swap!

Somehow Metro GT seems to be a contradiction in terms.

This is an amazing find. Congrats, man. If we can't have it for ourselves, at least we know it's going to someone who really appreciates it for what it is.

A junk swap sounds fun! I have some vert parts too. I'm not sure what I really need, but I like hoarding car parts!
