End cap?

Stolen hubcaps?  When the world ends, I'm moving to Houston.  Apparently, it's still 1978 there.

What? Is it 1988 already?

/who the Fark steals hubcaps anymore?

$400 for the little plastic covers in the middle of the wheel? I think there's more than one form of theft going on here.

What they're talking about are the center caps on alloy wheels, typically about 5-8" in diameter, covering up the lug nuts. And the caps from Cadillacs are actually still kind of popular as a display item/ status symbol among folks of certain demographics.

And the $400 figure is pure bullshiat, unless they mean the total value of caps the guy had in his possession, from multiple cars, not just the ones he yanked from the one cadillac.
And yes, the 80s called- they want their crime back.

Stealing Cadilac hub caps? He sounds poor. When I was young, we used to steal Bently hub caps...

My first thought of a Cadillac end cap would be the plastic extensions between the end of the quarter panel and the tail light housing.
Those things always seem to be missing on 1980s Fleetwoods and sell for a couple hundred bucks.

$400 seems kind of cheap for four. My neighbor said the ones on his Chevy 2500 were over $100 each from the dealer when he had to get some.

Only had one car with hubcaps... it was my 1987 Lincoln Town Car Signature Series... god that car was an epic ride.

My thought as well. Even the fiberglass repros are expensive.

Excuse subbie. He's from dipshytistan.  They talk funny.

Isn't the real story here that cops actually actively prevented a crime in progress?
 
2013-11-05 03:46:36 PM  
I read the headline, clicked the link, 'cause i'm like "endcap?" knowing full well he must have meant hubcap. also knowing in advance that the subby was from either El Salvador or Cuba, and could take a cheap shot. but too late. too late again. :(

Not necessarily, those things are stupid expensive for some even more unknown reason than why they exist in the first place.  My brother bought a used early 2000s model Mustang that was of course missing all of the caps on its wheels...I was going to get him a set for his birthday, until I found out the OEM ones were $80...a piece.
