Thanks you guys.     The wheels are 17 inch 1 off proto types.    tires are unique also.     We did a lot of cool stuff on this car as far as  suspension and drivetrain.   Lots of body work also.  The goal was to make all the body lines and gaps perfect like a newer car.   CDC  I think  did the facebook part.   I posted a lot of our part on Instagram.  Will try to find some pics.

Wait, so the CDC is sponsoring this build?  You'd think they'd be busy dealing with the next influenza outbreak.  (https://www.cdc.gov) :)

George has done so much in the 33 years I have known him. Looks to be another cool project he was involved in. Gary
