Interesting trivia... what factory optional rim was made by Cragar? I wish there were many answers, but the only one I've come across is the 1983-86 Cadillac Eldorado and Seville

if you know of some others, please note it in the comments.

I think it was cool of car manufacturers to use aftermarket companies for performance parts, like the Edelbrock 6 pk intake on Mopars in 1969, and the Hurst SC /Rambler having glasspacks.

But when I came across this, I was disappointed to find that there doesn't seem to be a simple answer online of what cars had Cragars from the dealership or factory. Just this Cadillac answer.

  1. Since I was a kid, I wondered why auto manufacturers didn't just use "mag" wheels rather than their lame attempts to simulate them. One possible reason is that even the highest quality after market wheel is no match for road salt. That's why we all took the mags off our cars during the winter when we were kids. (Unless they were already trashed like they probably were.) The other thing I always wondered is, why couldn't aftermarket wheel companies make wheels that could stand up to the elements as well as the auto manufactures' wheels could.
