I have a bunch of low value caps sitting around as well.  I get them in those 
"package deals."  Perhaps, we can come up with a contest for our Vair events. 
 We already have the valve cover races.  Maybe we can have a hubcap Frisbee 
contest where the loser has to take all the hubcaps used in the contest.  We 
can break the contest into two segments; Early and Late caps so that we can 
discuss which contest is better here on VV.
