I heard on the highway patrol TV program that when the oversizes tyres and rims are fitted it throws out the speedo reading and that it's possible to have it corrected so I'm wondering if anyone has had this done and where would one go to have it done.

And you, probably like most of us "older" people, wish we still had some of those pre 70s cars. I certainly do.
Although, most of my early cars were 70s-80s. HD, and HK GTS in the 60s.
