I’d love to find one too, I think a member here found one and used it on his car. They’re so cool

Why? There is no similarity between a distributor cap and a wing…but if you can find a Superbird wing, my 68 GTX would love it

Apparently some don't have sarcastic sense of humor. They do have "1" actual use though. Checking #1 TDC and 10° for FI controlled timing instead of drilling a hole.

Cool just for fun but I bet quality is poor. Contact @HALIFAXHOPS for some good stuff.
I concur.....looking "cool" means?? IMO, the most important consideration is NOT the cool factor (whatever that is) but the DI-ELECTRIC STRENGTH of the cap matetial AND its ability to tolerate the high under hood temperature and the OZONE GAS generated by the arc from the moving rotor tip and the individual spark plug terminal on the ID of the cap. What is the cap matetial made from.....Plexiglas or Lexan....there are significant differences in strength and dielectric performance. Ozone gas can become corrosive and is an oxygen derrived compound....Ozone is O3 and should be vented. There was a reason that this item fell out of favor....likely internal flash over and tracking between terminals......i'll stick with the alkyd resin or bakelite material.....just my opinion...

I don’t think this thread was started to debate weather they suck IMO
