    Salad shooters came on 90s Crapamaros. Not Vettes.
    I own mostly junk. Except the Porsche, that's kind of cool.

    I am pretty sure that is the "sawblade" style wheel.

    Actually they were on the nasty mid 80's corvettes. I believe first year was 1984. The one with crossfire injection

    This is a salad shooter:



    This is a saw blade:



    KNOW THE DIFFERENCE>

    It seems C4 wheels are called either Salad Shooters or Sawblades. OP, which wheel are you refering to?

    I realy like the vett wheels. But since it requires spacers... I'm not interested. I'd rock some if it was bolt on without spacers.
