I woke up around 5am ready to go. No alarm clock. No trace of sleepiness remained. Nothing but a plan in my head. That plan involved driving around the downtown alleys and taking pics of my new Star Sharks.

There’s a Sharka wearing Star Sharks at the end of this post.

A short preview post. Fans of old Japanese wheels will understand.
This is a blog post I’ve been meaning to do for a long time. For years. Hell, since before I had a blog.
This one is about the first Momo wheel in my collection.
854 words on my newest steering wheel! It’s rare. It came from Japan. Fans of the M2-1001 Cafe Roadster might enjoy this post a whole lot.
I acquired a new steering wheel for my collection the other week. But this post is not about that. I’ll have a post dedicated to that beauty soon. This post is about the wild idea I had when trying to figure out storage for my steering wheel collection.
See, I’d been using a shelf in the garage. The wheels were all protected in their original Momo and Nardi boxes, but they were still out in the garage. Not the best place for such beautiful objects. And definitely not where I wanted to store my new M2 steering wheel. It is such a piece of art.
And that’s when the idea hit me. Art. It deserves to hang on the wall.
This blog post has been a long time coming. A long time. As long as I’ve been rebuilding my car since The Bonk. See, after I decided to rebuild Sharka, I started looking around for a new set of wheels. That was last November. I found these unique RP-F1s in June. I paid for them around the beginning of July. And now they are MINE.
What better way of spending a Friday night than polishing the spokes on a brand new steering wheel? My Prototipo is now very shiny. No in-progress pix, just finished, polished hotness.
The revlimiter.net steering wheel collection as of 2009. I got a new wheel for my birthday, so I took the opportunity to pop them all in the lightbox for some detail shots. The Decepticon Mighty Muggs helped out.
