Three spoke wheels were a rare factory option on the mid-90s Buick Park Ave if you opted for the Ultra package.
I...highly doubt those are factory. I know Ultras could be had with larger "turbocast" style wheels like this:
Unless it's a really obscure, specific build sheet, an LS6 Chevelle isn't quite that rare.Apparently only 20 were made in this configuration:
1970 Chevelle SS 454 LS6
Maybe it's like a Mecum auction, where the car crossing the block is one where someone ordered a '71 Barracuda with a 440/4-speed in baby:censored: green with a blue interior and wire wheels and the commentators have to note that it's "one of four in this rare option combination"
Yeah I don't see anywhere where that style of wheel was offered on the Park Avenue much less any Buick of the time. Those are definitely aftermarket wheels with Buick emblems attached. Also, it may be an illusion, but those look to be wheel covers. It looks like there is a wheel weight poking out from behind in the 5:00 position.
It was called "Iced Aqua" and, while rare, you can still source them if you find the right parts dealer. The last mention of it I know of is 2008.The European spec Volvo S40 and V50 in the mid-2000s could be optioned with a transparent plastic dashboard trim. Due to its ugly, out-of-place look, this option was very rare.
This isn't the infamous pistachio one or actually a Boxster, but here you go:Crazy as it sounds, I've seen references (in OEM Porsche parts information) to wood interior trim for these cars.
