Hi Loungers,
I open this new topic about old steering wheels.
I'd like to know which is your favorite model ? or which model have you in your car ?
And for you, which is the best model in cal-look car ?
Mine is an original Empi. And you ?

Nardi. I have one in my '67. Classic looks and not as common as the Flat-4/EMPI wheels.

Speedwell. I have 2 of those, and an EMPI GT too. I also like my Perohaus woodrim. Basically any deep dish vintage woodrim is cool, I don't like the flat ones like the above Nardi.

No I'm not a woodrim steering wheel addict...  Roll Eyes

Speedwell has got to be my favorite, but I don't think I'll ever get the chance to own one.

Depending on the car, though, a Motolita or Mountney would work just fine.  And lots more accessbile, as well.

I'm running a Nardi, but I bought a Superior 500 the other day and I'm thinking of changing.
Gotta see how it looks first  Wink

But I don't have a favourite, the wheels NEEDS to go with the rest of the interior... Colour of the dash, the shifter etc.

It's got to be my 15 " Empi wheel.  I got it 10 years ago as a wedding gift from my wife.  I gave her a ring and she gave me an Empi wheel with a not cracked hornbutton.  It's so cool.  I also have a 14" Empi wheel but thats for my Ghia and to me the 15" has more emotional value  Wink

3 DKP' members have put Nardi steering wheels on their cars:
Darrell Bomgaar (1966 sedan)
Bill Schwimmer (1659 ragtop)
Stephan Stanzaï (1957 ragtop)

I'm looking for a FLAT4 steering boss (with repop horn button) or a complete original Empi steering boss (with original horn button too) for a fair price.
So, Loungers, if you have them for sale, please send me a post.

Basically the same wheel, yes.  But sold through Empi, the horn button is embossed with the Empi globe.
