I'd imagine the REAL minilights would have a salutory effect on resale valu=

I have decided (since Brad beat me to Lew's wheels) to bite the bullet
and look at buying a set of "Mini-Light" look-alike wheels. But I would
like to ask the list for opinions on where to go for the best deal.=20
Also, I am considering adding an aluminum valve cover. But Since I am
still having some crankcase pressure problems, I want to get one that
does not have the pipe in the side for PCV, but has a vented oil cap.=20
Anybody know of someone who sells those old "Open System" valve covers?
