Thanks. No, not original Cragar’s. Unilugs. I use hub centric rings as a centering device. I bought the car around 2000 and it had 14” Rally II’s on it with some dry rotted bias ply’s. I’d always liked Cragar S/S and BFG’s. 15”.

Then we taped brown paper bags against the window to stop it from seeing this other bastard bird ,that won't give up. Gone in a day or two.

The unlock feature in my other car goes off when washing my other car, too.

I put a couple of old sheets on pass side last night and I didn’t see evidence of birds. That’ll get to be a pain quickly.....

John DeLorean was an automotive design genius in his day. I'd be proud to own that, or a 66. Both would be nicer lol.

OP;
I know birds and bird behavior. Been breeding and raising exotic birds most of my life. Right now is breeding season so the males are going after what they believe is another male in their territory. It will stop as soon as breeding season ends. Maybe another month, depending on where you live and the species of bird. Most likely Grackles. They are very aggressive toward one another when “love is in the air” and they have a diet of mostly berries.
You can do several things to stop it until the breeding season is over!
1. Pillow cases over the outside of your windows. Just drape them over the window and roll them up to secure them. No reflection= no birds
2. Something that moves in the wind attached to your mirrors or door handles. Bright red ( danger signal to birds) ribbon works well with a paper tag ( also red ) attached to the end.
Hope this helps!

Those are great hints, thanks!

The birds appear to be Eastern Towhees. The description and where they live matches perfectly. If they live in the shrub next to where I park it’s going to be downsized in about an hour.
