Coolest one I've ever found, bought off Craigslist, $100, no picture, just a description, Porsche Wood Wheel. I rolled the dice...

I sure like the horn assembly on the older wheels and even some I've seen on the newer dished wheels for later cars. Does someone make one that retrofits onto the newer style Nardi wheel?

Wondering if this "Nardi" wheel is the real deal. Installed on our '55 Speedster.

Thank you.

Dan - That's definitely a real Nardi wheel but it's like mine that I bought in the 70's as the horn button is just like mine. As I said, I prefer the look of the older horn button that is bigger and looks cool.

Greg I didn’t care for the look of the small horn button that comes with the Nardi’s , so I machined a stock button & ring to go over the original Nardi.

Do you have a picture, Michael? I’d like to see what you did and how you did it
