I took some new pics of Leroy's car at the Open House on Saturday.







It has the new headlights mounted but I forgot to take some pics of them. Right now that car is at Firefox's getting a new coat of black primer. We should have it back on Saturday.

Archie, nice pictures. The wheels should be to me by tomorrow to have the tires mounted. I hope to have them to you by Friday. I am trying to get my trip planned out to be at your shop on Saturday to pick it up.

The car is ready to go. I'll be at Archie's about 9:00am ( yeah, probably 9:30 or so ).

It's black again ( black primer ) and looking sleek. I'll post a few pics tomorrow after work.

WOW!! Well Leroy and his wife Sherry stop in Gallup. My wife Brenda and I met them at the gas station and had a very nice visit. The car is awesome! I so want a V-8 now. Archie and crew did a great job and the wide body looks totally mean. I thought Leroy's face would split with that big grin from ear to ear. Congratulations Leroy. It was nice to meet you and your wife and if you ever come through Gallup again give us a call. Steve

It is always great when you get a chance to talk to fiero people and twice as nice when you get to show off your pride and joy!
Thanks to Philip for coming out to say hi and check out the chopper


It was really nice to meet Steve and Brenda, they have a sweet yellow and black GT

From the readings, it's a 20x12 with a +5 off-set. You'll need the numbers from Troy's rear to compare. You'll need the shop to raise the rear to achive atleast 3 fingers width between top of 345 and center of the wheel well lip.

you guys are killing me.

1: must have a V8
2: Norms front end
3a: Integrated rockers
3b: wide body kit
4: big tires and rims
5: big brakes

The car looks great!
Are you going to run without side markers? Just asking because I have to pick up some lights for my car and was hoping to see some pictures of what other people are doing.

Hey Leroy, what did you decide on using for the fronts? 235s or 255s? How many turns on the rear coil-over...3-fingers? How did it drive? Come on man, it's freakin boring here in CA, hehe...

I went with the 255/30's. I have it set at two fingers just because it was getting late and I needed to get home. It rode very nice with the occasional scrape. I will dial it up to 2.5 fingers before I head to LA on Sunday.
