The HT/G rims have only five slots - not the additional double ones as shown - thats HK.

Sorry Andrew, but it is indeed an HT HG rim that was fitted exclusively to 350 Manual cars. Due to the whole homologation Bathurst thing, the HK 'cooling slots' were put in the HT/G 6" rims on the GTS 350 Manuals. The 350 Autos didnt get the slots. Look at the centre of the rim and compare it to the photo underneath of a HK rim. Different wheelnuts and different offset.

I think I read somewhere that the early cars had the five slot rims and the change to the HK slots happened after the sandown race when 1 of the 350s (Spencer Martin ? ) ran out of brakes and crashed.

Acknowledged. I thought it was just a generic posting about HK/T/G wheels. I wasnt aware this was a Bathurst specific wheel that was being referred to. There is a guy in Brisbane who sells these same wheels repro. ROH makes them up for him.

So if showing your concourse correct Monaro do you show sans caps to show off the wheels or with caps to show off your correct caps. Its a hard one!

If showing your concourse correct, leave the Caps on

it amuses me poeple talk'n bout concourse correct

when they don't even spell "concours" correct :-)

Predictable answer would be.................................................................................................................

Although I'm a spelling Nazi - I'm also a non conformist so anything that upsets purists is a bonus. ( including daring to live in NZ!)

A Concours d'Elegance (from French meaning a competition of elegance, lit. "concourse of excellence", referring to the gathering of prestigious cars) Wikipedia quote

So no its not incorrect spelling as such. We speak English not French so I suppose both versions may be correct when used in the context of restored cars.

My understanding of the word concourse was that it was a public gathering area or thoroughfare - the dictionary seems to support this too...

I noticed you spelt it both ways too- nothing like playing it safe!

Another predictable answer could be "Dont sweat the petty things and dont pet the sweaty things!"

This is one case where Wikipedia is not correct. The French/English translation of councours d'elegance is a 'contest of elegance'. So, yes, it is a gathering of people, but it is for a 'contest'.

Concourse, as in 'thoroughfare', is a different thing altogether.
