Hit this link and scroll down to the quote from Jacques Scholtz and I think you'll find what you're looking for:

http://www.classiccarstodayonline.co...-to-find-them/

Looks like they are italian FOMB wheels.

Looks like you’re spot on! No idea how you knew that, there’s hardly any info on the web about them! Thanks heaps Bryce!

Just to confirm, yes I now have 5 x 15” Bundts! Soon to be refurbished...

Cool. What a great find. I would imagine they will end up on one of the 6.9s?

Most of the aftermarket ones I've seen are ATS, so you've got something a bit unique here.

I assume you're going to print him a T-shirt to wear home on the plane?

I got lucky seeing this car for sale & suspected the wheels were 15s. I was a little sneaky and asked specifically for the tyre size.... I was very careful not to reveal what I knew to the PO! I even scored some shop manuals in the deal! The car is from Sth Africa as a grey import & is full of rust so not restorable. I paid more than I shouldíve but scored with the wheels! It has the original radio, so thatís another bonus! After swapping wheels & removing radio, mudflaps & first aid kit, itís being thrown into a deal for something else that Iíve been after for a while...

I think that's a great find and, furthermore, the article written about the various versions of the Baroque wheels is probably close to being the most comprehensive ever. I wonder, C107, if we could feature or classify the article as a "stand alone" on the forum. It makes great reference reading. Regards Styria

Thanks a million Bryce. Just such a pity that you're unable to attend. Best Regards, Styria

N.B. Also a big "sorry" that Patrick can't make it. If we work hard enough, we could have another GTG prior to Christmas. How say you Michel and everyone else ?

Maybe we can do another drive day and go to a lunch spot to mix things up a bit?
